Current Studies

CDL is currently launching and releasing the following projects:

Clearwater Hydrodynamics

STUDY IN PROGRESS. Is the Clearwater going to be the next Big Oil Play in the WCSB? Already sprinkled across a massive 400 km swath running from Jarvie through Marten Hills to Golden, the industry has quietly put over 1,100 laterals into the play that are producing over 16,000 bopd. CDL is working on a multi-client hydrodynamic study to advance the understanding, reduce the risk and provide perspective on new exploration fairways of this rapidly emerging play.

Clearwater Oil Play

CDL has taken a multi-disciplinary approach to understanding the Clearwater oil play. The Clearwater Oil Play Information Package illustrates the relationships between different producing areas and stratigraphic units, and variations in oil quality. Type curves and EURs are provided.

Recent and Popular Studies

CDL’s expansive technical library includes almost 300 projects, including 60 regional multi-client studies spanning the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, Williston Basin and beyond. While every study is unique, areas of technical investigation may include reservoir characterization, petrophysics, hydrogeology, geochemistry, production, geomechanics/stress and geophysics.

Recent and popular multi-client studies include:

Regional Atlases

Montney Regional Studies

Other BC/Alberta Studies

Williston Basin

Standard deliverables include maps, graphs, cross-sections and illustrated technical report and/or posters. Purchased studies include an in-person technical review plus data and GIS deliverables (shapefiles) for newer projects. You can also view the entire portfolio with a Technical Studies library membership. To browse the complete collection, visit our studies website.

Why Regional Studies?

Whether you’re an experienced veteran or a new entrant, regional multi-client studies provide important regional geological context along with independent, third-party verification of existing theories and interpretations. Canadian Discovery Ltd. (CDL)’s forward-looking integrated geoscience projects are further tuned to highlight emerging opportunities and address relevant industry challenges. We deliver decision-ready, cost-effective research so that clients can pursue their strategies with increased confidence. Our multi-client studies have:

  • Delivered practical guidance, including highlighting the best acreage and calculating resource estimates for numerous resource plays in Canada and the U.S.
  • Provided new play concepts in mature North American basins (i.e. unconventional gas resources).
  • Reduced exploration risks such as charge and flushing in relatively immature basins like the Oriente in Ecuador and the Murzuk in Libya.
