Abstract(available in French only)
La région du détroit de Davis qui sépare le Canada du Groenland est une marge transformante à composante volcanique qui a fait lobjet de travaux sporadiques dexploration pétrolière du côté oriental. Un examen des données géophysiques, océanographiques et géologiques a mené à une nouvelle interprétation de larchitecture du socle et à lidentification de preuves de lexistence dun système pétrolier non conventionnel dans deux bassins extracôtiers, qui navaient pas été jusqualors décrits, à lest de la baie Cumberland et du cap Dyer, de lîle de Baffin (Nunavut).
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Davis Strait region between Canada and Greenland is a volcanic transform margin that has seen sporadic petroleum exploration focussed on the eastern side. A review of geophysical, oceanographic and geological data shows a new interpretation of basement architecture with evidence that an unconventional petroleum system is present in two previously undescribed offshore basins east of Cumberland Sound and Cape Dyer, Baffin island, Nunavut.
