Dipping an Analytical Toe Into the Deep Basin

The Alberta Deep Basin encompasses stacked hydrocarbon-bearing intervals, allowing many operator to target multiple intervals to boost economics. Unlike other similar plays such as the Montney or Midland Basin, the Deep Basin’s zones are more conventional, meaning they consist of discontinuous shorefaces and winding channels deposited millions of years ago. As a result, the regional extent of reservoir quality rock is variable and requires detailed geological mapping and analysis to identify sweet spots. Enverus maps multiple intervals within the widely targeted Spirit River Group as well as the more liquids-rich Cardium and Dunvegan. In our most recent iteration of the Deep Basin Geology Map, data density increased 10x to over 20,000  wells, allowing for improved map granularity and  accuracy. The enhanced well control enables us to identify the depositional channels of the Falher Formation in the isopach (a measurement of target’s thickness) in Figure 1. In addition, the increased accuracy in the effective porosity map seen in Figure 2 can be used in combination with other layers help to highlight prospective and favorable regions of the play.
