Eromanga Basin

The Eromanga Basin is a large Mesozoic sedimentary basin in central and northern Australia. It covers parts of Queensland, the Northern Territory, South Australia, and New South Wales, and is a major component of the Great Artesian Basin. The Eromanga Basin covers 1,000,000 km²[1] and overlaps part of the Cooper Basin. The basin is made of sandstone, siltstone, mudstone, coal, shale, and red beds.[2] Two impact structures have been identified in the basin - Mount Toondina crater and Tookoonooka crater. In Queensland and South Australia the Eromanga Basin has been explored and developed for petroleum production.[3] Commercial quantities of gas were first discovered in 1976 and oil in 1978.[1] The basin contains Australia's largest onshore oilfield is at Jackson.[4] Moomba is the centre of South Australia's oil production in the basin.

Due to the lack of seismic exploration data and the widespread regolith cover, in 1994 the Department engaged Encom Technology to integrate and interpret existing geophysical data sets covering the Eromanga and Surat Basins. The objective of the study was to investigate the geological structure of the region with particular reference to the implications for hydrocarbon potential. In the absence of significant seismic coverage regional gravity and aeromagnetic data constituted the principal data sets, with additional control from water bores, surface mapping and satellite imagery.
