Abstract

The basement beneath Australia's offshore basins was the cradle for sediments involved in oil and gas formation. Knowledge of basement depth, boundaries and evolution provides clues to the petroleum potential of Australia's sedimentary basins. The problem is finding the right combination of geophysical techniques to define basement offshore, and knowing what adjustments to make to reduce unwanted effects in definition. Geoscience Australia's Alexey Goncharov outlines his team's exciting new basement and crustal studies that are tackling the problems.
