Biography/ Background

Dr Tingay has over 15 years experience in overpressure analysis, pore pressure prediction and petroleum geomechanics. He graduated with a PhD from the University of Adelaide in 2003 with a thesis entitled ‘In Situ Stress and Overpressures of Brunei Darussalam’. Since 2003, Dr Tingay has conducted over 20 industry-based research and consulting projects on a range of petroleum geomechanics and overpressure issues. Dr Tingay has worked world-wide, but with a primary focus on the Asia-Pacific region, including compilation of the first present-day stress map for SE Asian petroleum basins, determination of overpressure origins in Brunei, Thailand and Malaysia and new pore pressure prediction methods for the Gulf of Thailand and NW Borneo. Dr Tingay’s research track record includes publication of over 60 peer-reviewed papers, giving over 100 presentations at conferences and professional society meetings, and providing over 80 media interviews. In 2009 he was awarded the inaugural Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists Early Achievement Award for “significant contributions to geophysics by a scientist under the age of 36”. In 2011 he received a prestigious ‘Young Tall Poppy Science Award’ and was runner-up for South Australian Young Scientist of the Year. In 2015 he received the AAPG Cam Sproule Award for the best paper in an AAPG publication by a young author. Since 2013, Dr Tingay has had the combined roles of Rock Mechanics Research Scientist with Chevron and Adjunct Associate Professor in geomechanics and drilling engineering at the University of Adelaide.

Teaching Interests

I am no longer teaching in my adjunct role. However, I have previously taught undergraduate courses in Drilling Engineering, Petroleum Geomechanics, Petroleum Geology, Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, and Geology for Engineers.

I have a strong interest in learning and teaching issues, with particular emphasis on increasing student engagement, developing group work and research skills, and wikis. In 2011 I completed a Graduate Certificate in Higher Education. I currently help co-run a L&T discussion group at the Australian School of Petroleum, am a founding member of the Australian Geoscience Learning and Teaching Network and helping to organize the 1st Australian Geoscience Teaching Workshop in January 2012.

In addition to undergraduate teaching, I have also taught several professional short courses in petroleum geomechanics, tectonics, overpressures and pore pressure prediction ranging from 1-5 days length for petroleum companies, including BP, PETRONAS, PTTEP and for the American Asociation of Petroleum Geologists and Society of Petroleum Engineers.

Research Interests

My research interests are primarily in the field of petroleum geomechanics and tectonics as a part of the 'Stress, Structure and Seismic' (S-cubed) Research Group at the Australian School of Petroleum. My main research focus is in determining the present-day/contemporary state of stress and comparing this to recent structural styles. I also examine the implications and applications of the present-day state of stress for petroleum exploration and production (e.g. wellbore stability, fracture stimulation, seal breach by fault reactivation) and for geothermal power production.

My research also examines the relationship between stress, pore pressure and deformation. In particular, I examine how rocks break and bend and how fluids flow in extremely high overpressured environments (or very low effective stresses). As part of this research, I have looked at mobile shale features, such as mud volcanoes, shale diapirs and shale dykes in a number of locations, including Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia, Azerbaijan and offshore Egypt.In recent years I have conducted extensive analysis of the origins and evolution of the Lusi mud flow disaster that has been flooding the town of Sidoarjo, Indonesia since May 2006.

My current research (funded by ARC Discovery Grants) is focussed on present-day stresses neotectonics of Australia and SE Asia; examining the origin of overpressure and improved methods for pore pressure prediction, and; the development of delta-deepwater fold-thrust belt systems. My research has involved collaborative (unfunded) research with petroleum companies in Australia, Thailand, Malaysia and Brunei. In recent years I have conducted a range of stress studies around the world as part of the World Stress Map Project, including projects in Egypt, Azerbaijan, Oman, Germany, UK and the USA.

Community Engagement

I am actively engaged in community service through the Scientists in Schools program. I also routinely give presentations on my research to amateur science groups.

I regularly give interviews to the media on topics related to geoscience and the petroleum industry. To date I have given over 75 interviews on topics including the Sidoarjo mud flow disaster, volcanoes, earthquakes, geothermal energy, oil field blowouts, mining seismicity, oil and gas production and oil industry regulation.
