Integrated Geosciences

Why Integrated Geosciences?

At Canadian Discovery Ltd. (CDL), we recognize that oil & gas success begins with good rock and the right fluids. Integrating hydrodynamics, geothermics, geochemistry and geology reduces risk and maximizes results by identifying sweet spots, revealing new plays and improving asset valuations.

CDL has spent 30 years developing an unrivalled understanding of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, from broad regional picture to well level detail. CDL has worked basins in the U.S., U.K., South America, Africa and the Middle East. The combination of our depth and breadth of experience enables us to provide timely, cost-effective integrated geoscience consulting services and expertise on demand.

Our Experts

  • Kaush Rakhit
  • Kaush Rakhit, M.Sc., P.Geol.
    CEO

    Kaush founded Rakhit Petroleum Consulting in 1989, which purchased and merged with Canadian Discovery Ltd. in 2005. In the past 30 years, Kaush has become highly respected in the industry for the use of hydrodynamics for early recognition of unconventional resource plays and implementing exploitation programs. Notably, he led teams that recognized pervasive shallow biogenic gas resources in addition to successfully leading clients to book 1.7 tcf of gas resources and gain production in excess of 140 mmcf/d. Kaush earned his B.Sc. in Earth Sciences from the University of Waterloo and was the first person to earn a post-graduate degree (M.Sc.) in Petroleum Hydrogeology from the University of Alberta.
