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.

Nova Scotia Small Tidal Test Centre: Gap Analysis and Business Case

November 2017 – March 2018

As the tidal energy industry develops, there is increasing interest in the prospects for small-scale tidal energy development. Building small-scale tidal energy installations has promise given the number of locations where they can be used.

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

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’.
