Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
Unconventional petroleum resources have changed the structure and nature of global petroleum supply dynamics in the oil and gas markets. Unconventional resource plays represent significant augmentation of the existing opportunities to expand petroleum productions across the North America. The newly recognized unconventional resources opportunities in Canada have attracted international investors. Finding petroleum resource opportunities and identifying economically viable "prospects" within the resource plays present new challenges and requires innovative technologies and concepts to maximize their production potential. A model-based resource assessment simulation and risk evaluation has been developed by the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC). This method includes a geological model representing essential petroleum system elements for petroleum accumulations, a resource model describing distribution characteristics of petroleum accumulations, and a simulation procedure integrating available data, relevant information and geoscience constraints to generate scenarios of petroleum resource maps in a play. This approach has been applied to evaluating conventional petroleum potential and assessing geological risk in conventional plays, where subsequent exploration drillings are used to validate the model predictions. In this paper, examples from shale and tight sand light oil plays in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) are used to illustrate the application of the GSC model-based simulation to unconventional play resource evaluation and risk assessment.
