Abstract(Summary)
Tops of lithostratigraphic units of Middle-Upper Devonian strata are updated based on new results from central Mackenzie Plain. These strata include the unconventional hydrocarbon prospect known as the Canol Shale Play. The updated lithostratigraphic subdivision includes previously recognized and new members of Hare Indian, Canol, and Imperial formations traceable within NTS map areas 96C to 96E. These lithostratigraphic units are characterized in representative cored sections, identified in outcrops, and traced in the subsurface using spectral gamma, sonic, and resistivity logs, as well as available sample inventory. True vertical thickness (TVT) isopach maps and depth maps were created with Kriging methods in the ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst wizard.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Tops of lithostratigraphic units of Middle-Upper Devonian strata are updated based on new results from central Mackenzie Plain. These strata include the unconventional hydrocarbon prospect known as the Canol Shale Play. The updated lithostratigraphic subdivision includes previously recognized and new members of Hare Indian, Canol, and Imperial formations traceable within NTS map sheets 96C-F. These lithostratigraphic units are characterized in representative cored sections, identified in outcrops, and traced in the subsurface using spectral gamma, sonic, and resistivity logs, as well as inventory of cutting samples and available cored sections.
