AbstractPetroleum fluid test results from wells drilled in the MacKenzie Corridor derived from well history reports are compiled into a digital data format. These include formation pressure tests, temperature, as well as formation water and gas geochemistry.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
During drilling of exploration and production wells industry typically conducts test on water and gas chemistry from discrete horizons in a well to support exploration efforts. All results are required to be reported to the National Energy Board. In northern Canada these results have been historically contained in paper copy reports for each individual well, making it difficult to use the data to assess regional trends. A two year effort was undertaken to go through every paper copy report and digitize all geochemical results from every publically available well in the Mackenzie Corridor. These results are presented in digital format. Results provide the first every knowledge base of natural baseline conditions of formation fluids in the NWT.
