AbstractThe Aquitaine Sogepet et al. Pen No. 1 exploration well represents a key reference section for the Paleozoic stratigraphy of the Hudson Platform of northern Ontario. Recent isotopic and biostratigraphic analyses of this well have led to refinements in the Ordovician and Silurian stratigraphic framework of the Hudson Platform. This study is part of a project, under the GEM 2008-2013 NRCan program, designed to evaluate the hydrocarbon resource potential of the Hudson Bay Basin.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
New carbon isotopes and fossiliferous data acquired from an old exploration well drilled on the Hudson Platform in northern Ontario have enabled refinements to the depositional history and the age of the Paleozoic bedrock deposits, that have been studied as critical elements of potential hydrocarbon systems related to the geological history of the Hudson Bay basin. The upgraded stratigraphic framework can now be integrated with the Manitoba classical sections and be contrasted with the offshore successions with regional implications for hydrocarbon prospectvity.
