Abstract

Written primarily for the layman, this book is an account of the history, development and current activities in the search for oil in Australia. It outlines the geological factors controlling the generation of oil and natural gas in sedimentary basins and surveys the petroleum potential of onshore and offshore regions. Geological, technological and economic factors are defined and the present and possible future production of crude oil and natural gas in Australia are discussed. Mention is also made of the potential production of synthetic oil from oil shale and coal. This is an authoritative reference work which explains in simple terms the scientific, technological and economic aspects of the search for oil in Australia.
