The Palaeozoic-Recent Northern Carnarvon Basin, is a large, mainly offshore basin on the northwest shelf of Australia.
The basin is Australia's premier hydrocarbon province where the majority of deepwater wells have been drilled (greater than 500 metres water depth).
The major basin faults trend north or northeast and define a series of structural highs and sub-basins.
The basin developed during four successive periods of extension and thermal subsidence.
