Determination of Duvernay Formation Reservoir Properties through Probabilistic Petrophysical Analysis Calibrated to Core Studies Nasir Rahim
This talk will present an overview of a workflow designed to determine reservoir properties in unconventional reservoirs using probabilistic petrophysical techniques. A regional study of the Duvernay Formation in Alberta incorporating sample analysis data guided by sedimentological understanding is used as an example of this methodology.
Oral Presentation

Time: 10:40am - 11:05am
Application of an Integrated Approach for the Characterization of Mechanical Rock Properties in the Duvernay Formation Amy Fox
An integrated approach towards understanding geomechanical properties in the Duvernay Formation, an emerging unconventional play in Alberta, Canada is presented here. This study illustrates how analyzing geomechanical data in the context of geology, geochemical properties, rock mineralogy and fracture fabrics leads to a better understating of rock behaviour in this highly over-pressured play and its immediate overlying formation, the Ireton.

Reading Between the Lines II: A NEBC Shale Gas Quantitative Interpretation Case Study Incorporating Multi-component Data Laurie Weston Bellman
This presentation will describe an unconventional case study in the context of an integrated interpretation workflow, incorporating converted-wave shear (PS) data. The objective of the case study was to enhance and improve the prediction of facies and geomechanical properties of a shale reservoir interval by incorporating the pre- and post-stack PS data.

Geomechanics Theory and Practice
Two-Day Workshop
This workshop provides an introduction to geomechanics including an overview of current topics important in the field. Focused on the importance of understanding the full geomechanical setting and its implications in oil and gas operations today, the workshop includes a rigorous determination of all three principal in‐situ stresses, pore pressure and rock properties, as well as an examination of how geomechanics can improve drilling, completions and production.

The Surprising Influence of Multi-Component Data
CSEG Lunchbox Geophysics Talk
Multi-component (aka converted-wave, aka PS) data is a bit of an enigma. It’s like poetry; we know it’s important and we want to appreciate and understand it, but it’s hard work and the encounter can leave us a little bewildered and secretly disappointed. What was all the fuss about?, we ask. I think the key is to keep an open mind and, like all seismic interactions, let the sound waves speak for themselves in their native tongue. Just as French poetry loses something in the translation to English (I’m told), so does PS data when we convert (clumsily, I might add) to PP time.

Hydrodynamics of the Montney Formation – 2014 Update
Technical Workshop (for Study Subscribers)
Canadian Discovery Ltd. (CDL) is pleased to announce an update of its Montney Hydrodynamics Study (MRHS). Since our initial study, the Montney has become one of the hottest plays in North America. According to a recent National Energy Board briefing note, the Montney Formation holds 449 TCF and 15.6 B barrels of marketable gas and liquids, representing a 133 and 67-fold increase respectively from 2008.
