AbstractThe Mackenzie Corridor, an area encompassing thick Proterozoic/Phanerozoic sedimentary successions along the proposed route of the Mackenzie Valley pipeline, constitutes a significant frontier petroleum province in Canada's north. The area under study comprises the northern extension of the prolific Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. The Geological Survey of Canada has completed its first comprehensive exploration play-based quantitative petroleum assessment analysis of the region. This case study examines the techniques employed to obtain various probability distribution inputs for evaluating exploration play potential and individual undiscovered pool sizes.
