Spring Coulee seismic interpretation

Lauren A. Ostridge, Donald C. Lawton, Robert R. Stewart

Over the past two years, CREWES has recorded three seismic surveys near Cardston in southern Alberta, where the University of Calgary holds the mineral rights to two sections of land. Each survey consisted of multiple seismic lines, the main purpose being to map the sub-surface of the area and secondly to see if there could be hydrocarbon production potential. From nearby producing wells, we have chosen the Mississippian-aged Madison Formation as the primary target and strata of the Lower Cretaceous Mannville Group and Second White Speckled Shale Formation as the secondary targets. This paper gives an overview of the data acquired and summarizes the seismic interpretations.
