This resource potential evaluation of a number of zones in a large area of west-central Alberta (T.44-54, R. 5-18W5) was conducted to evaluate the possibilities of increasing the input to an existing gas plant. The zones evaluated were the Cretaceous Cardium, Second White Specks, Viking, Spirit River (Notikewin, Wilrich), Glauconitic and Lower Mannville (Ostracod, Basal Quartz), Jurassic Rock Creek and Devonian Duvernay. These zones were evaluated based on geological input from the client and a series of previous studies from the Canadian Discovery Ltd. (CDL) library, which included Second White Specks Oil Project (Phases I and II) and the Nordegg Tight Oil Project (Phase I). Understanding the economic value of the plays in the study area is dependent on an accurate portrayal of the production rates and Estimated Ultimate Recovery (EUR) in the early or mature stages of exploitation. A probabilistic analysis of the production data was used to predict future production outcomes on a statistical basis. Production decline analysis was implemented once type curves were established for each zone and the viability of each play in the subject area was confirmed. Deliverables include probabilistic type curves, well lists, EUR summaries, gas liquids analysis, condensate yields and P10 and P50 economics for each zone. In addition, the study provides Economics with Geological Conditioning Factor, well count and resource addition summaries in table form.
