Abstract

The main aim of the Canning Basin project is to improve our understanding of the stratigraphic and structural evolution of the basin as a basis for more effective and efficient resource exploration. The first stage of the project involved studies on two contrasting scales; a basin-wide compilation of structural information (not reported here), and a detailed study of the stratigraphic architecture and evolution of the outer portion of the central part of the Lennard Shelf, some of which is presented here. The basic information generated in the Lennard Shelf study has been compiled into three folios: 1) a Well Folio containing sequence interpretations of the more important wells in the area; 2) a Seismic Folio containing sequence interpretations of seismic lines; and 3) a Map Folio containing structure contour and isopach maps. These explanatory notes accompany the Seismic and Map Folios. More detailed discussions of the interpretations of the Devonian-Carboniferous sequences are presented in Jackson Sr others, (1992); Kennard SE others, (1992) and Southgate St others, (1993).
