Clarence Morton Basin

The Clarence-Moreton Basin is an extensive intra-cratonic Mesozoic sedimentary basin located primarily onshore in north-eastern New South Wales and southern Queensland and possibly eastwards offshore across the adjacent continental shelf. In Queensland, the arealy greater portion of the basin merges with the Surat Basin. Despite stratigraphic units in New South Wales being correlated to hydrocarbon productive units in Queensland, the 16 000 square kilometre New South Wales portion of the basin is lightly explored with approximately 30 petroleum exploration wells drilled to date.

The sediments of the Clarence-Moreton Basin are continental (non-marine) in origin and range in thickness from 2.5 km to 4 km. Triassic-Jurassic sediments of the Clarence-Moreton Basin unconformably overlie Ordovician to Triassic sedimentary and metasediments and igneous intrusions.

Hydrocarbon shows have been reported throughout the onshore basin mainly in association with quartzose sandstones of Marburg Group. The Triassic to Jurassic rocks of the basin contain abundant oil-prone organic matter of terrestrial origin, particularly in the Walloon Coal Measures and to a less extent in the Koukandowie Formation. Older units in the basin are generally lean in organic matter, but coal-rich sediments occur in older sequence.
