AbstractInterpretation has been made of the level of organic metamorphism and the nature of the associated hydrocarbons at three stratigraphic levels of the Mesozoic section of the Sverdrup Basin in the Canadian Arctic Islands (Fig 22). The organically mature zone or oil window as determinned by cuttings gas anallyses falls between 6,500 feet and 11,000 feet of maximum burial below the base of the Tertiary. Potential reservoir rocks including the Isachsen, Heiberg, and Bjorne sandstones lie in juxtaposition to mature shales in different areas of the basin.
