Geochemical Surface Expression of Oil and Gas in Arctic Terrains

The Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula is located in the Beaufort-Mackenzie Basin area of Canada and has seen numerous oil and gas discoveries. Using multiple geochemical methods, an orientation survey on the peninsula demonstrated that oil and gas seeps are detectable through thick permafrost, and that these methods can be used as a regional exploration tool.

Remote Sensing Underground

Satellite remote sensing uses specific frequency bands to reveal details about the surface of the earth. By borrowing this idea and applying it to broadband 3D seismic data, reservoir heterogeneities are illuminated enabling optimal reservoir development. Nexen Inc. are using this technology to shed light on Canadian oil sands reservoirs.
