Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics (now Australian Geological Survey Organisation) conducted a seismic survey in the central Eromanga Basin in Queensland from July to Late November 1982. This survey was a continuation of the work undertaken in 1980 and 1981 to investigate the structure, stratigraphy, geological and tectonic evolution, and petroleum potential of the area. The survey obtained 485 km of six-fold Common-Depth-Point reflection data, in the Adavale Basin, Cooladdi Trough and Pleasant Creek Arch areas.

Lineage

The Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics (BMR) (now known as the Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO) conducted a seismic survey in the central part of the Eromanga Basin from early July to late November 1982. The seismic survey was part of the multi-disciplinary, geoscientific research project on the central Eromanga Basin (Harrison & others, 1980), and was a continuation of the seismic programmes of 1980 (Wake-Dyster and Pinchin, 1981) and 1981 (Sexton and Taylor, 1983). The project aimed to gain knowledge of the structure, stratigraphy and lithology of the Eromanga and underlying sedimentary basins in order to study the geology and tectonic evolution of the area, and to provide basic information to assist in the exploration of the area for hydrocarbons. The objectives of the 1982 BMR seismic survey were to extend some of the 1980 and 1981 seismic lines further east across the Adavale Basin and to provide ties between private oil company seismic traverses with a number of important petroluem exploration wells. Some of these objectives were discussed by Mathur and Sexton (1981).
