Brief description

All commercially produced hydrogen worldwide is presently stored in salt caverns. Through the Exploring for the Future program, Geoscience Australia is identifying and mapping salt deposits in Australia that may be suitable for hydrogen storage. The only known thick salt accumulations in eastern Australia are found in the Boree Salt of the Adavale Basin in central Queensland, and represent potentially strategic assets for underground hydrogen storage. The Boree Salt consists predominantly of halite that is up to 555 m thick in some wells. In 2021, Geoscience Australia contracted Intrepid Geophysics to develop a 3D geological model of the Adavale Basin, using well data and 2D seismic interpretation and focussing on the Boree Salt deposit. The 3D model has identified three main salt bodies that may be suitable for salt cavern construction and hydrogen storage. Further work and data acquisition are required to fully assess the suitability of these salt bodies for hydrogen storage.
