Clarence-Moreton SEEBASE & Structural GIS Project data.


This dataset was supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and is presented here as originally supplied. The metadata was not provided by the data supplier and has been compiled by the programme based on known details.

The main objectives of the Clarence-Moreton *SEEBASETM and GIS Project study were to provide the NSW Department of Primary Industries with an integrated regional interpretation of the basement composition, lithology, structure and depth of the Clarence-Moreton Basin in New South Wales. This included the construction of a depth to basement image (SEEBASEā„¢) for the area.

The effects of the basement geology on the evolution of the Clarence-Moreton Basin (both onshore and offshore) and of its precursors, the Esk Trough and the Ipswich Basin have been investigated. Attention was focused on the formation and reactivation of the basin controlling structures. The evolution of these structures has been evaluated in the light of the different tectonic events that have affected the area.

Maturity and fluid flow migration maps derived from SEEBASETM grids indicate that the central axis of the onshore depocentres and parts of the offshore basin are mature for present-day oil generation. However, these maps probably underestimate the maturity along the eastern margin of the basin, due to significant uplift and erosion that occurred during the Cenomanian. Such areas are likely to be mature for hydrocarbon generation provided adequate source rocks are present at depth.

Available gravity and magnetic data have been reprocessed and enhanced with an extensive set of wavelength and amplitude filters. An ArcMap 9.0 GIS product has been constructed that includes all structural interpretations, as well as the potential field data.

The revised and expanded interpretation of the structure and basin architecture in the area of the Clarence-Moreton Basin provides an improved understanding of basin evolution in the region, which will contribute to the reduction of exploration risks in the area.
