Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
The hydrocarbon potential of the lower Paleozoic succession of Hudson Bay region is currently poorly constrained and the area must be viewed as a frontier prospect. However, the location nearer to main markets than many frontiers is a significant positive factor. Aside from a few wells and seismic in the 1970s, and concerted coal exploration in James Bay Lowlands, almost no serious oil and gas exploration has occurred in this region. Yet, in geological terms, the prospectivity is good. Oil and gas could reside in a wide variety of carbonate and clastic plays of many different ages and styles: simple lack of knowledge makes petroleum system analysis very difficult until further data are generated. Many units in this under-studied succession are comparable to known productive zones in southwestern Ontario, but have had little testing of play concepts or modern stratigraphic/sedimentological analysis. New geological study of stratigraphic architecture and correlation, lateral predictability of reservoir geometry, source, seals, maturation and migration, trap mechanisms, and generation of new play concepts would likely result in significant potential for exploration success and economic impact.
