Predictive Modelling of Sandstone Reservoir Quality in the Scotian Basin

May 2016 – December 2018

This project uses existing knowledge of inferred drainage basin areas and paleoclimate to model multiple river inputs to the Scotian Basin. The modelled sedimentary succession is compared with actual sediment thicknesses in the basin.

Going with the Flow II: Using Drifters to Address Uncertainties in the Spatial Variation of Tidal Flows

October 2017 – June 2018

Drifters are one of the oldest, simplest and most reliable methods for measuring ocean currents. Drifters also provide a simple, low risk platform from which to gather acoustic information along flow streamlines or ‘drift tracks’.

Reservoir Distribution & Characterization: Shelf to Slope Linked Depositional Systems

August 2007 – August 2010

The objectives of this study are 1) to understand the complexities of shelf-to-slope and slope sedimentation patterns, and 2) to understand the controls inherent in mixed siliciclastic and carbonate shelf-edge depositional systems.  New play concepts were developed that identified significant rew

River Sources & Sand Transfer to the Deepwater Lower Cretaceous Scotian Basin

August 2007 – August 2010

This project aims to define the distribution systems for sand and help industry explorers refine their exploration targets and better understand the quality of underground petroleum reservoirs.

Analysis of Petroleum Systems on the Scotia Shelf using Thermal & Seismic Techniques

August 2007 – July 2010

The objective of this project is to produce new petroleum systems and high resolution seismic velocity models along several transects across the central and NE sectors of the Scotian Slope. Ground-truth from existing wells on the upper slope will be used as benchmarks.

Development of Marginal Fields in Offshore Nova Scotia – Phase 1 & 2

June 2009 – June 2010

The reduction in cost of a marginal development is largely attributed to the potential reduction in size of the offshore installation. These types of installations are referred to as ‘minimal platforms’.
