An active exploration campaign in the Exmouth Plateau has yielded gas discoveries in a coeval wave-influenced delta and deep-water, sand-rich fan succession. Depositional elements were organized into clinoform seismic stratigraphic units that blanketed irregular topography created by extensional tectonics. Clinoform geometries revealed steady, rising and falling shelf-slope break trajectories. Slope successions associated with rising trajectories were devoid of deep-water feeder systems. In contrast, during steady to falling trajectories, the slope was characterized by numerous gullies. These gullies served as the main delivery system for sediment gravity flows into the basin. In some instances, an individual gully dominated and captured...
