The objective of the FCMU-2 study was to better understand the causes of induced seismicity (IS) related to fracturing operations in the Duvernay. This project maps the stress setting of the pre-Duvernay section in the Kaybob–Fox Creek areas of west-central Alberta and complements the stress mapping that was done for CDL’s 2014 Duvernay Gas Liquids and Geomechanics Project (DVRN). Since the 2014 study was completed, the data available for characterizing the stress state have increased substantially. This increase allows for more detail and higher resolution of the stress state of the pre-Duvernay formations.
