Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This Open File presents the first independent resource evaluation for the Utica Shale in southern Quebec. Previous estimates were published by the industry and for their specific acreage. The resource evaluation is based on a new methodology developed specifically for shale and other tight reservoirs. The evaluation for the total gas in-place ranges between 117 and 287 Tcf with a best estimate of 186 Tcf. The evaluation for the liquids in place ranges between 0.78 and 5.2 Bbls with a best estimate of 2.3 Bbls. No evaluation of the technically recoverable resource has been made. For both liquids and gas, these values are significant from a volumetric point-of-view.
