Abstract

This report summarises technical information on the petroleum and non-petroleum accumulations found in the Browse Basin up to 30 June 1991. The report contains a brief overview of the geology of the Browse Basin and describes the location and significance of all known petroleum accumulations. The nature of the Browse Basin sequence, and the petroleum accumulations found to date, indicate that additional petroleum resources are likely to be discovered. The known petroleum accumulations are a major potential resource and highlight the potential of the basin to satisfy some of the nation's energy and industrial resource requirements in the next century.
