Western Canada’s Largest Collection of
Integrated Geoscientific Projects

With over $30 million invested to date, Canadian Discovery's Technical Studies library represents a unique and invaluable resource for the E&P industry. From full petroleum systems and basin analysis, to basin hydrogeology and petroleum migration modeling, along with unconventional resource play assessment and play-specific analysis, this collection encompasses virtually every play and area in the WCSB, Williston Basin and beyond!

  • Hundreds of Relevant Projects – Extensive coverage of virtually every play and area across the WCSB, Williston Basin and beyond!
  • Varying Scope – Full petroleum systems and basin analysis, basin hydrogeology and petroleum migration modelling, unconventional resource play assessment and play-specific analysis.
  • Recognized Expertise – CDL is a long-standing leader in the identification and assessment of unconventional petroleum resources. Until 2005, when it purchased and merged with CDL, RPCL was a world-renowned, international hydrodynamics consultancy.
