Abstract

The Australian Southern Margin SEEBASE® Compilation represents many years of work by SRK in southern Australia in the petroleum, mineral and coal sectors. During this time SRK has undertaken numerous projects in southern Australia with both the private and government sectors. These projects have resulted in the development of a model of the geological evolution of southern Australia from Archean to Recent that is summarised in this GIS and report. The model is consistent with a wide range of datasets including airborne and satellite remote sensing, seismic, well and outcrop observations. The basins of Australia's Southern margin formed by the repeated reactivation of long-lived basement structures. By understanding the genesis and geometry of the old basement structures, we have produced a model for the evolution of the Southern Margin basins that explains their structural framework and architecture. This SEEBASE model and structural interpretation can now be used as the basis for a new understanding of the sequence stratigraphy and petroleum systems of the margin.
