Abstract

The collection consists of field, processed, and navigation seismic data. Acquisition, processing and interpretation reports plus reprocessed seismic data and reports are also held. The collection is derived from the submission of seismic data under the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act and previous legislation. The Petroleum (Submerged Lands) Act (and the Offshore Petroleum Act & Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act 2006 (OPGGSA)) requires petroleum data to be submitted to the State Designated Authority (DA). The Act(s) require the DAs to make copies of the data available to the Commonwealth Minister through the Joint Authority.

Lineage

Historically, seismic data tapes were stored for the Joint Authority by National Archives at Chester Hill because the tapes needed a temperature controlled storage facility. When Geoscience Australia moved to Symonston the seismic tapes collection was moved to the Repository in 1998. In 2003 funding was provided to remaster the tape collection from old storage media (9 track tapes) to 3590 cartridges. This remastering program has enabled the preservation of the collection on modern archival media and allowed further migration of data onto higher capacity storage media since 2007. In 2010 all open file processed seismic data was migrated to the Repository Digital Data Store, a near online facility. Currently there is a Surveys taskforce undertaking a data rationalisation program that will bring survey header and navigation data into one database. Almost all data is now on modern archival standard tapes. Migration to Repository Digital Data Store provides a backup for holdings and QC of data on existing tapes. The RDDS provides a near on-line copy of the open file seismic tape collection that can be used to output copies of data on tapes or hard disc drives for clients. Key Clients: Industry, Government, Internal Geoscience Australia (GA) and Academic research.
