Queensland petroleum exploration data - QPED


This dataset and its metadata statement were supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and are presented here as originally supplied.

Database storing geological, geophysical, and geochemical data relating to Queensland's sedimentary basins derived from the drilling of petroleum wells, coal seam gas wells (CSG), stratigraphic bores, coal and mineral drillholes. Data includes general well history, company and GSQ stratigraphy, drill stem tests, wireline logs, downhole temperatures, analytical data, biostratigraphy, and hydrocarbon indications.


Dataset History

The Borehole Database is part of our MERLIN geographic information system (GIS) and involved the amalgamation of 4 Departmental Databases: the petroleum (QERDB), coal (QCOS), mineral (TerraSearch Pty Ltd download) and water (Groundwater Database).

Extracted from well completion reports, papers, departmental regional project results, borehole reports, and wireline logs. Some data also reinterpreted by Departmental staff (eg. stratigraphy and biostratigraphy). Update in progress for petroleum and CSG dataset only. Stratigraphic, Coal and Mineral drill hole data are rarely updated.
