Well of the Week – Not a one trick pony
Perhaps last week’s Petro Ninja – Enlighten Geoscience Well of the Week gave the impression that the Kiskatinaw was solely a high-risk/high-reward play. Well, I apologize if I painted that picture, because that is only partially true. A different style of play was exploited east of the big structural plays. The same understanding of the tectonically controlled sedimentation patterns in the Stoddart Group allowed for the identification of gas pools updip of the Dunvegan D
Well of the Week – This is the end (of the Carboniferous and maybe something else)
This Petro Ninja – Enlighten Geoscience Well of the Week serves as examples of both fascinating geology and the reason for the swing to resource plays. The collapse of the Peace River Arch (PRA), which began soon after the Devonian and continued intermittently throughout the Mississippian, really got going towards the end of the Paleozoic. This process was elegantly laid out in the landmark paper by Barclay et al. (1990); Dynamic casting and growth faulting: Dawson Creek Gra
Well of the Week – How is the Dunvegan Debolt like a shopping mall?
Every development needs an anchor whether it is in real estate or oil and gas. A mall requires a lead tenant, and an oil and gas region with a wealth of resources still requires a major discovery to really kick it into the big leagues. Investors need a reason to invest in the facilities to allow substantial but smaller plays to be plumbed in. And that is why the Dunvegan Debolt is a gas field that deserves to be remembered.
