Dr Chris Boreham

Principal Research Scientist

Dr Chris Boreham obtained his PhD in Chemistry at ANU and has worked at Geoscience Australia for four decades. As a petroleum geochemist he has a wide experience in the application of organic geochemistry to the evolution of oil and gas in Australian sedimentary basins. In recent years he has extended these geochemical studies to unconventional petroleum (coal seam gas, shale gas and oil), helium, hydrogen and abiogenic hydrocarbons as well as being involved in CO2CRC’s studies on the injection of CO2 into a depleted natural gas field and a saline aquifer.
