That’s Not a Train, It’s Daylight!

Presented May 2017 at GeoConvention


Resource plays have become the norm in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin outside of the oil sands areas. Canadian Discovery continuously analyzes activity trends in the Basin spanning the stratigraphic column. This analysis looks back at 2016 to highlight the trends and zones that the industry is pursuing. High-activity plays such as the Montney, Spirit River and Viking are emphasized, along with evolving plays such as the southeastern Saskatchewan Mississippian carbonate subcrops and the Charlie Lake.
