Abstract

The Browse Basin is located in the southern Timor Sea region of Australia's North West Shelf and covers an area of ~140,000 km2. It was identified as containing potential Environmentally Suitable Sites for carbon dioxide (CO2) Injection (ESSCI) by the Australian Petroleum CRC's GEODISC program (1999-2003). A regional geological reconnaissance of Cenozoic sandstone and carbonate sequences in the Browse Basin was undertaken in 2007 to determine the potential storage and sealing capacity for geological storage of CO2, the results of which are presented in this report. Methods included the review of available literature and well-completion reports, lithological and mineral analysis of selected well cuttings and interpretation of the wire-line and seismic response of the Cenozoic section.
