Abstract

As part of its program to define the extents of the Australian Legal Continental Shelf on the Kerguelen Plateau AGSO acquired over 5500 km of new seismic data including the first regional datasets over Elan Bank and in the Labuan Basin. This report presents results of a geological framework study carried out to underpin the Australias Law of the Sea claim on the Kerguelen Plateau. It provides an up to-date analysis of the stratigraphy, structure, geological evolution and petroleum prospectivity of the Kerguelen Plateau region taking into account recent ODP drilling, geological sampling, seismic reflection and refraction data, as well as potential field data.
