DOES A GOOD OUTCROP JUST STAND OUT? – IDENTIFICATION AND ANALYSIS OF A POTENTIALLY REPRESENTATIVE BASIN CENTRED JURASSIC OIL BEARING SHALE OUTCROP
Canada’s Western Sedimentary Basin lacks a fully representative analog by which Jurassic Oil Prone fine grained unconventional resources can be profiled and characterized. In a collective effort, Geo-Libre Inc; ProGeo Consultants along with Calgary Rock and Materials have joined forces to analyze what may be a truly representative outcrop for Jurassic Oil Prone fine grained unconventional resources in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin.
The ultimate objective of this team effort being to answer some of the questions related to production challenges from tight basinal reservoir facies of Jurassic age which are abundant in Alberta and which hold potentially large petroleum resources.
Methods which will be considered include using Xrf Profiling, Xrd, Porosity & Permeability, Mercury Injection Capillary Pressure (MICP) measurement, Petrographic Analysis & other techniques on outcrop samples.
