Abstract

PROJECT BACKGROUND The Sedimentary Basins of Eastern Australia (SBEA) Project is a multidisciplinary study of the Bowen, Surat and Gunnedah Basins. It is part of the National GeoscienceMapping Accord and is a collaborative project between the Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO, formerly the Bureau of Mineral Resources, BMR),Geological Survey of Queensland (Department of Minerals and Energy) and New South Wales Department of Mineral Resources (Geological Survey and Coal & Petroleum Geology branches), with cooperation from CSIRO, universities and industry. The Bowen, Surat and Gunnedah Basins have considerable resource potential and,although there have been regional studies of the basins in the past, there are still uncertainties as to their precise geometry, mode of formation, the response of thebasin to tectonic events in the adjacent orogens, and the control exerted by these events on the timing and generation of hydrocarbons. OBJECTIVES The aim of the project is to undertake an integrated basin analysis with emphasis onthe tectonic, structural, sedimentary and thermal histories of the basins in order to assess their economic potential for hydrocarbons. This Record describes the interim products of the second phase of a regional seismic synthesis, and focuses on theapplication of the principles of sequence stratigraphy in the interpretation and integration of industry and BMR seismic data in the Bowen and Surat Basins,Queensland, between 23°30'S and 26°S (Fig. 1). It also includes examples of isopach and structure contour maps, in reduced format, based on this phase of interpretation, and briefly outlines the methods and techniques used to produce these maps. Themaps are available through the AGSO Sales Centre, and digital data from the PetroseisTM System Software are available in various file formats.
