Abstract(Summary)
This study used an integrated approach that combined well EURs derived from well performance analysis with in-place oil resource calculated from reservoir attribute maps to infer recoverable resource potential in the tight reservoir of Middle Bakken Unit A in southeastern Saskatchewan. A geological risk evaluation was conducted for identifying potential sweet spots of economically producible oil resource in the study area, which resulted in a probability map outlining possible "sweet spots" in the Unit A tight reservoir of the lower Middle Bakken Member. The assessment indicates that the mean recoverable oil and associated gas are 231.3 x 106 m3 (1454.6 x 106 barrels) and 37.77 x 109 m3 (1330.8 BCF), respectively, and the expected in-place endowment of oil is 2.63 x 109 m3 (16.57 x 109 barrels).
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This study used an integrated approach by combining well EURs (Estimated Ultimate Recovery) derived from well performance analysis with in-place oil resource calculated from reservoir attribute maps to infer recoverable resource potentials in the tight reservoir of Middle Bakken Unit A, southeastern Saskatchewan. A geological risk evaluation was conducted for identifying potential sweet-spots of economically producible oil resource in the study area, which resulted in a probability map outlining the possible sweet-spots in Unit A tight reservoir of the lower Middle Bakken Member. The assessment indicates that the mean recoverable oil and associated gas are 0.23 x109 m3 (1.45 x109 barrels) and 37.77 x109 m3 (1330 billion cubic feet) respectively, and the expected in-place endowments of oil is 2.63 x109 m3 (16.57 x109 barrels). The probability distributions of the oil and gas resources suggest large uncertainties in the estimation.
