The two primary objectives of this study are to understand the geomechanical setting and its implications, and to define the Duvernay Petroleum System. Secondary objectives are to characterize the Duvernay reservoir, to conduct a regional geologic analysis, including detailed petrophysics, and to conduct a completions review.
