Belly River, Edmonton and Paskapoo Hydrogeology - Canadian ...

L i mUnconventional Gas ResourcesBelly River, Edmonton and Paskapoo HydrogeologyThe super shallow coalbed and sandstone reservoirs of the Upper BellyRiver and Edmonton Group are emerging as one of the most importantplay types in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin.This resource play is characterized by a unique underpressured signature, ‘dry’ productioncharacteristics and areas of pervasive gas saturation - predominantly biogenic. With sweetspots ofstacked coalbeds and sandstones exceeding 10 bcf/section OGIP, the play can be a very lucrativelong-life producer. However, this play has been largely by-passed until recently due to poorpetrophysical response caused by invasion, variable mineralogy and fresh formation waters.RPCL has been studying unconventional gas resources for over 10 years. Our approach of usingintegrated hydrodynamic analysis provides an effective means of delineating water wet areas fromgas-saturated ‘dry’ production fairways.R15W5MT55EDMONTONR15W4MT55ALBERTAi t o f M a i n C o r di l e r a n D e f o r m a ti o nStudy area mapBlue inset - Main study areaYellow inset -Ardley study areaFOOTHILLS AREALegendGeological EdgeDatabase WellRegional Cross-SectionDetailed Cross-SectionShallow Gas ProductionCALGARYT25R3W5MT25R15W4MCanadianDiscovery Ltd.integrated geosciences
