Abstract

The Browse Basin High Resolution Study was undertaken as a joint project between the Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO) and Nopec International Pty Ltd in early 1997. The study is underpinned by a recently acquired, 5,265 km grid of regional, high-resolution seismic reflection data (1996 Browse Basin High Resolution Survey, AGSO Survey BBHR/175), the integration of sequence stratigraphic analysis of the seismic data and of 21 wells, structural mapping, geochemical analyses, and geohistory modelling of potential source rocks. The study aims to provide a regional structural and stratigraphic model for the evolution of the Browse Basin, with particular emphasis on the development of petroleum systems in the prospective Mesozoic and Cainozoic sections. It is hoped that this regional framework and assessment of petroleum systems will assist exploration through a better understanding of the basin's prospectivity.
