Abstract

The Officer Basin is a poorly exposed Neoproterozoic and Early Palaeozoic intracratonic basin in south central Australia. The Officer Basin Project was developed co-operatively between the Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO) and the Department of Mines and Energy, South Australia (MESA) as part of the National Geoscience Mapping Accord (Lindsay & others, 1991; Leven & Barton, 1991). The main AGSO objectives were to evaluate the resource potential of the region and promote petroleum exploration by developing a depositional and post-depositional model of the basin. These objectives were accomplished by means of an integrated basin analysis involving the reassessment of existing seismic, well-log and potential field data and the gathering of approx- imately 550 km of new seismic data. The results of this work have been assembled as a major basin atlas (Lindsay, in prep.). This record summarises details of the analysis and reassessment of well-log data from the South Australian part of the basin.
