Abstract: 

THERE ARE SEVERAL ORGANIC-RICH SHALE FORMATIONS IN THE PERTH BASIN. THEY HAVE BEEN SOURCE ROCKS FOR OIL AND GAS FIELDS AND HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATED AS A POTENTIAL SHALE GAS IN THIS STUDY. ORGANIC GEOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS DATA, SUCH AS TOTAL ORGANIC CARBON AND ROCK-EVAL PYROLYSIS DATA PLUS BURIAL HISTORY MODELING WERE APPLIED TO EVALUATE ONE OF THE SHALE FORMATIONS IN THE PERTH BASIN.
A TRENDOF INCREASING MATURITY FROM NORTH TO CENTRAL PART OF THE BASIN COULD BE SEEN, FAVORING THE OCCURRENCE OF GAS SHALE NEAR THE BASIN CENTER. THE SHALE INTERVAL HAS REACHED A THERMAL MATURITY, THE ORGANIC MATTER IS A MIXED TYPE II/III KEROGEN, AND FORMATION THICKNESS, ON AVERAGE 189.31 M, ARE EFFECTIVE FACTORS FOR GAS SHALE POTENTIAL.
