Brief description

All commercially produced hydrogen worldwide is presently stored in salt caverns. The only known thick salt accumulations in eastern Australia are found in the Boree Salt of the Adavale Basin in central Queensland. The Boree Salt consists predominantly of halite and is considered to be suitable for hydrogen storage. In 2021, Geoscience Australia contracted Intrepid Geophysics to perform 3D geological modelling of the Adavale Basin, particularly interested in modelling the Boree Salt deposit in the region. The developed 3D model has identified three main salt bodies of substantial thicknesses (up to 555 m) that may be suitable for salt cavern construction and hydrogen storage. These are the only known salt bodies in eastern Australia and represent potentially strategic assets for underground hydrogen storage. However, there are still unknowns with further work and data acquisition required to fully assess the suitability of these salt bodies for hydrogen storage.

Geoscience Australia has transformed Intrepid Geophysics' Adavale Basin 3D Modelling dataset into Petrel. This Petrel dataset is part of Geoscience Australia's Exploring for the Future program. Files including a readme file and Petrel dataset that consists of formation surfaces, faults, borehole information and formation tops.
