Abstract

The offshore Gippsland Basin is Australia's major producing hydrocarbon province. Acreage has historically been tightly held, and opportunities for new players in this highly prospective basin have been limited. However, recent relinquishments have allowed the Australian Federal and Victorian State Governments to offer three potential permits to petroleum exploration companies and consortia. The Bureau of Mineral Resources Petroleum Group, in collaboration with the Victorian Department of Manufacturing and Industry Development's Petroleum Branch, has produced a hydrocarbon prospectivity package for the Southeast Gippsland Basin, with particular emphasis on the three areas to be released. The package takes the form of this BMR Record 1991/9. The Package covers regional geology, geophysics, palaeogeography, and hydrocarbon play concepts, together with a new structural interpretation for the Gippsland Basin developed at BMR. In addition, for each release area the package covers previous exploration, local geology and play concepts, reservoir geology and engineering, and geohistory. Prospects and leads are described in detail, and the text is complemented by some 80 Plates and Figures.
