Abstract

A reflection seismic survey was conducted in 1959-1960 by Geophysical Service International, S.A. for West Australian Petroleum Pty Limited. The survey took place within the Canning Basin in Western Australia. The purpose of the survey was to investigate certain anomalies which had been indicated by a previous refraction seismic survey. The reflection seismic survey consisted of 63 miles of continuous profiles, and the interpretation of the results obtained over part of the prospect was controlled by three closed loops. Four anticlinal structures were located in an area where the thickness of pre-Permian sediments is believed to be between 4000 feet and 5000 feet. One of these structures is in the form of an anticlinal nose plunging to the south-west with the open end facing northeast. The other three structures are anticlinal structures closed by faults.
