  • A collection of geological samples associated with drilling activities and submitted by companies under the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act 2006 (OPGGSA) and previous legislations that required petroleum data to be submitted to the National Offshore Petroleum Data and Core Repository (NOPDCR). The collection also contains cores and cuttings samples acquired by Geoscience Australia and its predecessor BMR, other government agencies and institutions from around Australia. <b>Value: </b>Information related to the subsurface that have the potential to support geological investigations and assessment of a variety of resources. <b>Direct access</b> to petroleum mining sample information is available on National Offshore Petroleum Information Management System (NOPIMS) platform (https://www.ga.gov.au/nopims) via the Core Library tab. <b>Request to access</b> those samples can also be made via the form available on NOPIMS. https://nopims.dmp.wa.gov.au/Nopims/RequestForms/CoreCuttingsAccess/CoreCuttingsAccess

  • The BMR Yearbooks followed on from and retained the format of the final BMR Annual Report. The 1977 yearbook did not use that word in its title, which was simply BMR77. Later volumes followed this pattern, but added the subtitle: Yearbook of the Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, and in common usage they became known as the BMR (later AGSO) Yearbooks.

  • Gravity data measure small changes in gravity due to changes in the density of rocks beneath the Earth's surface. The gravity data collection contains both onshore and offshore data acquired on geophysical surveys conducted by Commonwealth, State & NT Governments and the private sector. <b>Value: </b>Gravity used to infer (model) the presence and position of different rock types in the subsurface. Used in resource assessment <b>Scope: </b>Australia continent and some data from marine surveys in region

  • The Onshore Seismic Data Collection includes regional crustal scale seismic datasets across the Australian Continent collected by Geoscience Australia (GA) and its predecessors, the Bureau of Mineral Resources (BMR) and Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO) in collaboration with the State and Territory Geological Surveys, Australian National Seismic Imaging Resource (ANSIR) ( National Research Facility for Earth Sounding), AuScope Earth Imaging (under the Australian Government's National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy), Universities and other industry and research partners. The collection preserves raw and processed seismic data. The GIS dataset of Onshore Seismic Surveys from 1976 to present (updated May 2019) shows locations of seismic recording stations (the original ecat <a href="https://pid.geoscience.gov.au/dataset/ga/100802">100802</a>). It is generated from a database containing coordinates of all Geoscience Australia's seismic traverses. This Shape file enables users to display seismic lines on a map and contains links to data packages available for free download. < b>Value: </b>Data used to expand the geoscientific understanding of the earth's crustal structure and provide new insights into Australia's onshore energy and mineral potential. This data can be used for the assessment of resource potential. <b>Scope: </b>Primarily targeted regional crustal scale cross-sections (2D) for research purposes. <b> To view the seismic dataset by state use the following URL: </b> https://www.ga.gov.au/about/projects/resources/seismic

  • This dataset contains all multibeam bathymetry data held by Geoscience Australia (GA) dating back to survey obtained since 1993. <b>Value: </b>Bathymetry data is used for a wide range of marine applications including: navigation, environmental assessment, jurisdictional boundaries, resource exploration. <b>Scope: </b>Data holdings lying within the offshore area of Australia, including international waters. <b> To access the AusSeaBed Marine Data Portal </b> use the following link: <a href="https://portal.ga.gov.au/persona/marine#/">https://portal.ga.gov.au/persona/marine#/</a>

  • The Australian National Exposure Information System (NEXIS) collates the best publicly-available information, statistics, spatial and survey data into comprehensive and nationally-consistent exposure information datasets. Where data is limited, models are used to apply statistics based on similar areas. Exposure Information products are created at the national, state or local level to understand the elements at risk during an event or as a key input for analysis in risk assessments. <b>Value: </b>NEXIS products are not intended for operational purposes at the building or individual feature level. Its strength is to provide consistent aggregated exposure information for individual event footprints or at standard community, local, state and national geographies such as the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Statistical Areas (SA) or Local Government Areas (LGA). <b>Scope: </b>National detailed exposure information of the number of people, dwellings, other buildings and structures, businesses, agricultural and environmental assets. Further information can be found at the following URL: https://www.ga.gov.au/scientific-topics/community-safety/risk-and-impact/nexis

  • Document distribution and location of a variety of built infrastructure features, including: ports, power stations, electricity transmission lines and substations. <b>Value: </b>These locations are not authoritative or comprehensive, but represent a valuable resource for visualisation, decision support and planning activities. <b>Scope: </b>National dataset at resolution relevant for presentation of regional spatial data such as digital maps or regional decision making, ie., does not include many small scale or local distribution infrastructure types such as lines to houses.

  • Delineation of Australia's domestic and international maritime limits and boundaries. These boundaries include a variety of jurisdictional, economic, regulatory and legal boundaries. <b>Value:</b> Used by national governments, businesses, organisations in determining boundaries for zones governed/managed by different regulatory structures/requirements. <b>Scope:</b> A national dataset at resolution relevant for presentation of regional spatial data such as digital maps or regional decision making.

  • Geoscience Australia's Oracle organic geochemical database comprises analytical results for samples relevant to petroleum exploration, including source rocks, crude oils and natural gases from both onshore and offshore basins. The data is non-confidential and available to the petroleum industry, research organisations and the public. The data are produced by a wide range of destructive analytical techniques conducted on samples submitted by industry under legislative requirements, as well as on samples collected by research projects undertaken by Geoscience Australia or other government agencies or institutions. Some of the results have been generated by Geoscience Australia's laboratory, whereas other data is compiled from service company reports, well completions reports and published papers. <b>Value: </b>These data comprise the raw organic geochemistry values generated for Australian source rocks, crude oil and natural gases and is the only public comprehensive database at the national scale. The raw data are used as input to other studies, such as petroleum systems modelling, resource assessments and national mapping projects. Derived datasets and value-add products are created based on calculated values and interpretation to provide information on the subsurface petroleum prospectivity of the Australian continent. The data collection aspires to build a national-scale understanding of Australia's oil and gas resources. <b>Scope: </b>This data collection is useful to government for evidence-based decision making on natural energy resources and the petroleum industry for de-risking conventional and unconventional exploration programs. Results for many of the oil and gas samples held in the Australian National Offshore Wells Data Collection are included in this database.
