Abstract

The Cambrian to Holocene Bonaparte Basin is a fan-shaped hydrocarbon-bearing basin extending over 270,000 km2 (104,248 mi2) in northwestern offshore and onshore Australia (Figure 23). Tae basin contains up to 15 km (9 mi) of sediments and has a multiphase history, comprising the southern Paleozoic and northern Mesozoic depocenters. Tae basin developed during two phases of Paleozoic extension and Late Triassic compression prior to the onset of Mesozoic extension (Mory, 1991; Baxter et al., 1997; Geoscience Australia, 2009d).
