Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources made three seismic surveys in the Ngalia Basin, Northern Territory, during 1967 to 1969 as part of a comprehensive geological and geophysical investigation of the structure and stratigraphy of the basin. L097 is the third survey done in 1969. The project was aimed at delineating the configuration of the basin, within which outcrops are sparse, and providing information pertaining to its depositional and tectonic history. Investigation of the extent of Lower Palaeozoic sedimentation was considered to be important in assessment of the petroleum prospects of the basin.

Lineage

Before 1967 there had been no systematic regional geological coverage of the Ngalia Basin. Geophysical surveys on behalf of Pacific American Oil Co (PAOC) . conducted over their lease area; a regional aeromagnetic survey covered practically the whole of the basin and a seismic survey was carried out over the eastern lobe. Geophysical surveys for Magellan Petroleum (1972), the present permit holders, continued after the Bureau's surveys and were mostly concentrated in the western basin lobe. As well as adding further interconnecting ljnes with the Bureau's work, it also provided a link with the original PAOC surveys in the east.
