Abstract

Six petroleum accumulations have been discovered since 1965 in the Bass Basin of southeastern Australia. The petroleum in the Bass Basin mainly occupies the structural fold-related traps within the Lower Cretaceous to Upper Eocene fluvio-deltaic clastic rocks of the Eastern View Coal Measures. It is believed to be of humic, algal, and herbaceous origin, and occurs as crude oil (21-50ºAPI); condensate (49-51ºAPI); and gases (mainly wet). The basin's estimated petroleum recoverable reserves as at 31 December 1985 comprise 2.25 x 106m3 of oil, 7.38 x 106m3 of condensate; 4.70 x 106m3 of liquid petroleum gas (LPG); and 13.20 x109m3 of sales gas.
