Abstract

As part of the Offshore Energy Security Program (2007-2011), Geoscience Australia (GA) undertook an integrated regional study of the deepwater Otway and Sorell basins to improve the understanding of the geology and petroleum prospectivity of the region. Major outputs of this study include: - New interpretations of basement architecture and structural fabric resulting in the recognition of the Avoca-Sorell Fault System as a major control on sedimentary basin development, - Extension of the tectonostratigraphic framework of Krassay et. al. (2004) into the deepwater Otway and Sorell basins, leading to new insights into their structural and accommodation histories of both basins, and - Petroleum systems modelling indicating that these basins are mature for oil and gas generation.
