The Cooper–Eromanga Basin contains a regionally extensive Cretaceous polygonal fault system.

The fault system contains vast numbers of small faults with no preferred direction of either strike or dip, meaning the pattern of faulting on one horizon will not persist to overlying or underlying horizons.
Understanding of this structure would have substantial implications for hydrocarbon migration pathway models and structural and stratigraphic models.  Click here to read the case study in full.
