Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Gaspé Peninsula is an interesting region from an economic point of view and diverse works from academic, governments and industries have demonstrated hydrocarbon potential. RESSOURCES & ÉNERGIE SQUATEX INC (Squatex) operates in the Bas-Saint-Laurent / Gaspésie sector, and more particularly in the Témiscouata area. Their hydrocarbon exploration work has revealed the presence of fractured zones, some of which are associated with gas and oil occurrences in the carbonates of the Sayabec Formation. The research partnership between INRS and Squatex, supported by the Mitacs Accelerate Program, aimed to build on knowledge and expertise of a geology research team specialized in Quebec geology in synergy with the exploration company to improve the understanding of the complex geology of the sector and determine its energy resources potential. This report presents the results of detailed stratigraphic work on Massé No. 2 well. For future sedimentology and reservoir potential works, this well will serve as a reference succession for the Sayabec Formation the Témiscouata area.
