Cadman, S.J. & Temple, P.R., 2004. Bonaparte Basin, Northern Territory (NT), Western Australia (WA), Territory of Ashmore and Cartier Islands Adjacent Area (AC), Joint Petroleum Development Area (JPDA). 2 ed. Report  5. Geoscience Australia, Canberra.

Abstract

This report contains data on the 68 petroleum accumulations discovered in the Bonaparte Basin to December 2002. It provides summaries of the regional setting, evolution and stratigraphy of the basin and discusses the hydrocarbon habitat and development of the producing accumulations. For the purpose of this report, a discrete, measured recovery of petroleum on test from an exploration well qualifies as a `discovery?. Petroleum accumulations inferred from wireline log interpretations (and where petroleum has not been recovered on test) are referred to as `shows?. Small quantities of gas recovered on test in three wells included in this report may represent `solution gas? - indicating these wells may not have intersected a petroleum pool.
