Get this from a library. Cardium formation, Edson area, Alberta. [R N Sinha]. Deposit Type – The Cardium formation consists of tight inter-bedded sandstone and shale layers and is found in much of west central Alberta.
The formation depth is between 1, to 2, m and the average oil pay thickness is up to m. Some higher quality parts of the formation in the.
The Cardium Formation at Willesden Green is an upward‐coarsening succession of offshore to lower shoreface mudstones, siltstones and very fine to fine‐grained sandstones. The sandstones are informally referred to as the Cardium A sandstone and are unconformably overlain by chert‐pebble conglomerates, which are in turn overlain by marine by: 3.

While the Cardium Formation (Turonian Coniacian, Upper Cretaceous) is one of the major hydrocarbon sources, and consequently one of the most intensely studied siliciclastic formations in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, it remains one of the more controversial units in terms of understanding the depositional environments and processes it represents, and correlations between subsurface and Cited by: permeability predictor based on a tight area of the Cardium Formation, Edson Field, Alberta using log and core measurements from one well.

InPetrobakken Energy acquired several companies with resource play potential in the Cardium formation in West Central Alberta. After the first year of encouraging results the company set out to further evaluate these properties in and drilled an additional wells into the Cardium.
Extremely low and heterogeneous permeability is an important characteristic of tight oil reservoirs and poses major challenges to predict. The aim of this work is to develop a permeability predictor based on a tight area of the Cardium Formation, Edson Field, Alberta using Author: Jianwei Di.
The Deep Basin area is comprised of the Pine Creek and Wapiti producing regions. Pine Creek The Pine Creek region is characterized by high-quality, liquids-rich natural gas and light oil production from the Cardium formation and liquids-rich natural gas production from the Mannville interval.
Foothills of Alberta. Lochend is a single offshore sandstone body deposited along the western margin of the Cretaceous Seaway. It is one of many elongate oil producing sandstones of the Card~u~Formation in the Alberta Plains (Fig ).

Chamberlain. The Cardium Formation is a shallow marine clastic unit of upper Middle Turonian to Lower Coniacian age that was deposited in a ramp setting on the western side of the Western Canada foreland basin. The regional subsurface and outcrop stratigraphy of the Cardium is well-known in northern and central Alberta, but is poorly-known in southern by: The Cardium Formation is a mix of sandstone & shale and is part of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.
Natural Gas can be found in Western Alberta while the main oil zone is located throughout the whole shale field from Alberta down to Montana and all the way up to Northeast British Columbia. In the Pine Creek, Alberta area Crew has over 80 horizontal Cardium oil locations identified.
The Company now plans to drill two to three Cardium wells at Pine Creek in Crew owns pipeline infrastructure and an underutilized gas processing facility in. Examination of 22 cores and over petrophysical logs of the Turonian (Upper Cretaceous) Cardium Formation in the Lochend region permitted the identification of 9 facies which could be arranged into 3 major coarsening-upward Lochend, the Burnstick Sequence comprises 5 distinct facies that progressively coarsen upward from a silt Author: Ceri J.
Chamberlain. It's called the Cardium oil formation. ~~ad_0~~ The Cardium Oil Formation. Before I go any further, it's important to understand why this oil play is so important for Alberta — and why it may prove to be less risky than your investments in Alberta's neighboring provinces.
As you know, Alberta is the powerhouse of Canada's energy industry due to its vast oil : Keith Kohl. Petrus’ prime area of focus is the Ferrier area of Alberta where Petrus targets liquids rich natural gas in the Cardium formation.
Petrus owns and operates its processing infrastructure and is committed to improvements in its operating and capital cost structure in order to be a low cost operator in the Ferrier area.
The present work is an investigation of the low-grade geothermal potential of a foothills area of west-central Alberta. The area of interest is located about km west of Edmonton and includes the towns of Hinton and Edson as indicated in Figure consists of townships 45–58 and ranges 13–27 W5 on the township range grid or approximately 53°–54°N and °–° by: 1.
The Pembina Cardium CO 2 Monitoring Project in central Alberta was built to assess the Cardium formation’s storage potential for CO 2 and stimulate oil production. Three baseline trips and 28 monitoring trips were undertaken over a three year period from February to March to collect fluids and gas from eight producing by: The sea level fall resulted in a narrow seaway at Late Turonian time associated with the deposition of the Cardium Formation in western Alberta (Figure 2; Wall and Singh, ; Wright and Walker Missing: Edson Area.
The Turonian Cardium Formation has been studied in cores and about well logs in the Garrington-Caroline-Ricinus area. This paper emphasizes sand-body geometry, and the lithology and sedimentology of the cores will be discussed in a subsequent by: 7.

Jennifer A. Wadsworth and, Roger G. WalkerCited by: This article was written by an oil and gas analyst at a Bulge Bracket investment bank. An Introduction: Alberta Deep Basin. The Deep Basin, one of Canada’s premier natural gas plays, produces ~ billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) of gas and is cost competitive with premier US gas basins such as the Marcellus.
The Deep Basin borders the western edge of the Western Canadian Sedimentary. The Cardium formation stretches throughout much of west-central Alberta. It is typically a sandstone deposit encased in thick shale.
The industry has known there was oil there since the s. It has been producing oil and gas for over 50 years from vertical wells.
During the Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Pembina Cardium CO 2 Monitoring Pilot in the Pembina area west of Edmonton, Alberta (Canada), two phases of CO 2 injection (total of ∼75, t of liquid CO. We build 3D models of Alberta's Geology. These models are an innovative tool for integrating various data like roads, pipelines, and communities with resources like groundwater, minerals, and hydrocarbons.
This interactive map highlights sand and gravel deposits with aggregate resource potential, based on data and maps we've published in the past.

A detailed map (center) showing the Pembina oil pool and surrounding cities/communities, rivers and lakes, and an enlarged map of the study area within east Pembina (right). The geological significance of this giant discovery made it unique amongst the some other giant oil fields discovered to date.
The extent of Pembina’s Cardium reservoirs encompasses an area in excess of square miles (2, square km) making it second in areal extent to the leading supergiant Ghwar Field in Saudi g: Edson Area.Drayton Valley Area. To continue meeting the needs of shippers and accommodate increasing production in the Cardium formation located in west central Alberta, Pembina plans to spend approximately $40 million prior to mid on projects that will provide additional .The Colorado Group (known locally as the Alberta Group) occupies the Cordilleran foothills with the foot thick Blackstone Formation near Nordegg, which holds silty and platy shales, together with the Cardium Formation marine sandstone and shales, and the Wapiabi Formation which reaches up to feet thick with mudstone, ironstone and ammonite fossils.
