In this paper, we present new pyrolysis and bulk geochemical results obtained using a cored section of the Husky Little Bear N-09 exploration well, drilled in 2012. A total of 326 samples were collected at 0.5m spacing. This is the highest resolution of lithogeochemical logs for discerning stratigraphic units of black shale in the Canol shale gas zone This information can be found in public documents. Samples were collected from the Hume, Hare Indian and Canol formations. The contact between the Canol and Imperial formations is not encountered in this core. This report is concerned with specific major and trace elements associated with proximal siliciclastic flux, bioproductivity and anoxic paleoconditions of the basin. Rock Eval data from the Canol Formation indicates the presence of highquality Type II kerogen, indicating a hydrocarbon production potential within the peak oil, and marginally, the condensation zones.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This paper reports on new pyrolysis and bulk geochemistry data from the cored section of the Husky Little Bear N-09 exploration well drilled in 2012. A total of 326 samples have been collected at an even step of 0.5 m, which provides the highest chemostratigraphic resolution for black-shale stratigraphic units within the Canol shale play available so far in published sources. The samples were collected from Hume, basinal-type Hare Indian, and Canol formations. The Canol/Imperial boundary is not intersected by core. Selected major and trace-element proxies to siliciclastic influx, bioproductivity, and basinal anoxia are discussed. Rock-Eval 6 data show high quality Type II hydrocarbon characteristic of Canol play and the post peak oil generation and marginally into the condensate zone.
