Abstract

A reflection seismic survey was conducted in 1959-60, east of Roma, Queensland, on Authority to Prospect 55P, by Austral Geo Prospectors Pty Ltd for Associated Australian Oilfields N.L., through their management affiliate, Mines Administration Pty Ltd. The primary purpose ofthe survey was to locate positions most favourable for the accumulation of oil and gas. One well, Timbury Hills No. 2, was drilled on a structure indicated by this survey and produced 1,250,000 cubic feet of gas per day. A second well, Pickanjinnie No. 1, tested 6,500,000 cubic feet of gas per day. The seismic survey indicated several possible positions for future bore-holes, and there are indications of structures near the edge of the area. In order that these may be investigated fully, more extensive seismic work should be carried out.
