Geologic Study of the Devonian Slave Point Formation – Peace River Arch Area, NW Alberta

Overview
The Slave Point play in north western Alberta is stratigraphically subtle and exploration success demands a sound understanding of its depositional architecture and stratigraphic evolution. Wireline log interpretation alone is insufficient to accomplish this goal. The present study documents Slave Point geologic evolution and relates this to its exploration potential by incorporating detailed core descriptions from 549 cored wells (more than 8,000 metres of core). Reservoir quality porosity is directly tied to specific depositional facies and the study includes a series of facies distribution maps that mirror porosity trends.

This study is a compilation of 4 linked study sub-areas with stratigraphic picks and depositional facies correlatable between each of the areas. Areas 1-3 are in the eastern part of the study area located from Township 80 to 95, between Ranges 10W5 and 23W5. Area 4 is in the western part of the study area located from Township 88 to 91, between Ranges 21W5 and 12W6. At the time of the study all available well control penetrating the Slave Point Formation (or equivalent) were used, resulting in a 1,494 well database.
