Hydrodynamics data is one of the key inputs for enhancing our understanding of the subsurface, and Canadian Discovery (CDL) understands the challenges of preparing these data for analysis and mapping. The Canadian Discovery Fluid Dynamics Database uses CDL’s intelligent data capture and screening methods that have been defined by our skilled team of geologists, engineers and analysts; it comprises quality-controlled (QC’d) pressure, fluid and temperature data.

Clean Data = Informed Decisions

Smart, actionable analytics requires clean and reliable data. Resource plays generate a great deal of data, and the more you can trust it, the more efficient and effective your decision making can become.

The Canadian Discovery Fluid Dynamics Database will be released in a series of zones, starting with the Montney. At CDL, we recognize that hydrodynamics and geothermics are emerging as important tools for understanding the complex distribution of reservoir fluids distribution in the Montney Formation.


Uncertain about the public pressure data set?

Pressure data, when supplied in its raw form through standard data vendors, contains several challenges and uncertainties. CDL has used this data for decades while conducting hydrodynamic studies, and has established processes to quality-control the data within stratigraphic context. When an anomalous pressure is identified, we go back to the source—the reports.


Trying to determine whether a reported temperature is representative of the reservoir temperature?

CDL has mapped regional geothermal gradients using its extensive pressure database. This knowledge is used to provide insight as to whether a temperature is actually measured, or has been assigned a default temperature commonly used within that area or test type.


Encountering challenges when mapping gas liquids?

Inconsistencies in corporate reporting of gas liquids volumes in the public production record can cause problems when mapping production trends. Gas chemistry can serve as a good proxy for liquids production. CDL has calculated a number of different wet gas indices and established processes to ensure that you are using the most representative gas chemistry sample.

Regional to Pad Level

Map Coverage

Working regionally?

Take advantage of CDL’s Montney pressure plays and isotherms.

Comparing pads locally?

CDL has grouped Montney wells into pads to facilitate pressure and temperature analyses. Whatever the scale, the Canadian Discovery Fluid Dynamics Database provides quality-controlled data within a consistent stratigraphic framework accompanied by powerful workflows and visualization tools.
