Abstract

In central Alberta, the Devonian-aged Cooking Lake Formation serves as both a potential seal/baffle to the Leduc Formation and a component of the Woodbend aquifer. Understanding the various depositional facies and sedimentology within the Cooking Lake including porous dolomite, porous limestone, and tight limestone, is crucial for accurately modeling and monitoring CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) projects. This study aims to address key questions regarding storage potential, particularly in areas beyond the Leduc reefs. It will also assess the potential impacts of leakage on adjoining CCS project areas, especially concerning pressure changes.
