Guidelines for NT onshore petroleum exploration reporting and data submission

1. Introduction

This guideline will assist the holders of petroleum titles in the Northern Territory prepare geoscientific reports and data under the following legislation.

Petroleum Act - Onshore and Inland Waters

Petroleum (Submerged Lands) Act - Northern Territory Coastal Waters

This document complements the directions given in the:

Where legislation is unclear or outdated the guidelines have been adapted from the following sources:

The purpose of this document is to assist with statutory obligations that petroleum exploration permit holders need to observe when preparing geoscientific reports for exploration permits (EP), retention licences (RL) and coastal exploration permits (NT/CP). Each report must comply with the schedule and guideline, and shall contain all diagrams, plans, and data necessary to satisfactorily interpret and evaluate the report.

Field development plans, well operations plans, notices of geophysical or geological surveys, production reports, rehabilitation or restoration reports, pipeline reports and notices of discovery are outside of the scope of these guidelines.

These guidelines may be updated from time to time, and it is the responsibility of the titleholder to ensure they use the latest version when submitting reports or data.

In all cases legislation prevails.

Guidelines for NT onshore petroleum exploration reporting and data submission

2. General Submission Requirements

2.1 Media

The department will accept the following media for delivery of reports and data:

e-mail attachment (total attachment file size not does exceed 10MB)

Optical Disc (CD/DVD) full size, no multisession, read only

Portable Hard drive, non-returnable

USB flash drive, non-returnable

Industry standard tape cartridges (e.g. 3590, 3592 - for seismic field data)

All media must be individually labelled with the company name; title number(s), report type and date, and disc or drive number, for example 1/5 on both the disk/tape/CD as well as the cover. A list of all files must be included with the report submission (e.g. Appendix 6).

The media used must be appropriate to the volume of the data being submitted. Companies must use their discretion as to minimise the number of items submitted and demands on storage requirements. The titleholder or operator should keep a digital back-up copy of the report and data submitted to the Department for at least a year to cover the possibility of physical damage, data loss or corruption.

2.2 Metadata

It is strongly recommended that metadata (data about data) be included in the header of the data file. Metadata are to be presented in a file header at the top of the file of related tabular data (preferred), or as a separate file (e.g. Appendix 1, 5, 7, 9, 10 & 11).

2.3 Operating System

All reports/files and/or data must be compatible with the Windows operating system.

2.4 File Compression

Files may be submitted in compressed form (ZIP format). However, they must be self- extracting and should include a full file listing.

2.5 Security

All submitted digital files (e.g. MS Excel, Word, PDF’s, data, etc.) must not be password protected.

Guidelines for NT onshore petroleum exploration reporting and data submission

2.6 Naming of Files

Files to be submitted must not contain full stops, quotes or non-alphanumeric characters.

File names should preferably conform to the following naming convention:

Name or ‘Area/Location of Survey’_’Type of Survey’_’Year’_’Type of Report’.’File Type’ e. g. McArthur_Basin_2D_SS_1991_Interp_Report.pdf

Area/Location of Survey: Usually basin name. Type of Survey: 2D or 3D Seismic Survey (SS), Airborne Gravity Survey (AGS), Airborne Magnetic Survey (AGS), Ground Gravity Survey (GGS), Airborne Gravity and Magnetic Survey (AGMS) etc. Year: Year Survey was completed Type of Report: Acquisition, Processing, or Interpretation, or others File Type: .doc or .pdf

2.7 Submission, Receipt and Quality Control

A transmittal document must accompany all reports and data submissions. NTGS will date and sign the transmittal and return it to confirm that we have received the data.

The Petroleum Data Manager will follow up confirming compliance & quality control after the submission has been checked. If compliance or quality control issues are identified, re- submission may be required.

2.8 Resubmissions

If data are resubmitted, the submissions must be accompanied by a summary of how the new data differs from the previous submission.

3. Format Specifications

All reports and data should be submitted in digital format.

3.1 Reports

Reports must be provided as Portable Document Format (PDF) documents. This includes the title page, summary, list of contents, references, and any figures and tables that are interleaved with the text, appendices and plans. The entire report can be submitted as a single PDF file, if file size <100Mb and data types permit.

3.2 Maps, plans and images

All graphics should be provided in PDF, JPG or TIF format. They must be readable, of good print quality, and the colour and spatial data of the original plan or image should be maintained. Resolution should be 300 dpi or better.

Small to medium size graphics (up to A3, 420 x 297mm) can be accommodated in the main report PDF file, particularly if they are interleaved with the text. For larger plans (greater than A3), or where PDF is not considered appropriate, JPEG and TIFF may be used.

Guidelines for NT onshore petroleum exploration reporting and data submission

3.3 Tables

All tables must be included in the relevant report in PDF format, as well as provided as Microsoft Excel files in the ‘XLS’ or ‘XLSX’ format. ‘XLS’ format files must be submitted as an attachment to the report.

3.4 Tabular data

All tabular data, including mudlog data are to be supplied as delimited ASCII (TAB delimited preferred) or Excel spreadsheets for analytical data. Files should include column headings, units and explanations of any abbreviations. Acceptable ASCII formats are: TXT, DAT, LAS, CSV.

Note: Further examples and details of format specifications can be found in the Australian Requirements for the Submission of Digital Exploration Data.

Well, seismic and other geophysical data must be submitted in the formats specified in Tables 9.1-9.5.

3.5 GIS data

GIS data formats accepted are ESRI shape files (SHP) and MapInfo tab files (TAB). Where practical, the symbology of the GIS displayed data should be provided (e.g. an ESRI layer file (LYR) or legend file (AVI) or MapInfo workspace file (WOR).

4. Confidentiality and Information Release

Section 61 of the Petroleum Act (the Act) specifies the timing for release of information for reports and data.

The release of reports and data, relating to specific activities, depends on the type of the report and data:

Basic Basic data is data that is obtained at the time of an acquisition activity. Basic reports are reports on the acquisition & processing of basic data. All contractor and/or acquisition contractor derived data and results are defined as basic data. All basic data should be included in the relevant completion reports on activities (e.g. seismic survey acquisition report).

Interpreted Interpretive (final) reports and data include any data and conclusions drawn from that data that are considered an interpretation of acquired data. All interpretative reports and data should be lodged separately to basic data.

Guidelines for NT onshore petroleum exploration reporting and data submission

The following table summarizes the release dates of petroleum reports and data to the public in compliance to the Petroleum Act (Section 61).

Notes: Non-exclusive or speculative surveys are not addressed in the Act.

Rig release is considered “completion” for the purposes of data submission due dates and open filing dates.

Re-entry wells: The open-filing of a re-entry well depends on the activity.

Planned 2-phase: If the drill proposal requires two drilling phases to meet the objective, the rig release date is set to be the end of the second phase.

2 different activities or 2 different objectives:

There are two activities or rig release dates.

If the well is finalised as per the original drilling proposal and then the objective is changed and the well was re-entered, reports and data should be submitted for both activities.

Open filing of the reports and data submitted on the first activity, will be based on the first rig release date.
