INTEGRATED PETROLEUM RESOURCE POTENTIAL AND GEOSCIENCE STUDIES OF THE BOWSER AND SUSTUT BASINS

Project Overview

A joint program undertaken by the Resource Development and Geoscience Branch of the B.C. Ministry of Energy and Mines, and the Northern Resource Development Program of the Geological Survey of Canada (Natural Resources Canada)

Current collaborators: Simon Fraser University, Gitcorp

GOALS:

-engage and educate northerners in geoscience

-attract private sector investment to this frontier region

-reduce exploration risk

-increase employment opportunities for northerners.

Revised Thermal Maturity Model And Indications For Effective Petroleum Systems

Relative prospectivity based on thermal maturity

Thermal maturity pre-2002: a largely unknown picture, but assumed to be bleak

Thermal maturity July 2002: new data release thoroughly revises perceptions of prospectivity

Complicated patterns of thermal maturation and maximum temperatures indicate that large areas of the Bowser Basin are in the oil and gas windows.

REGIONAL GEOLOGICAL FRAMEWORK - location

  • north-central British Columbia
  • in Intermontane Belt of the Canadian Cordillera, a region of low metamorphic grade relative to the bounding Omineca Belt (metamorphic) and Coast Belt (plutonic and metamorphic
  • overlies Stikine Terrane (Stikinia), a terrane allochthonous to the North American margin prior to deposition of Bowser and Sustut basin strata
  • Stikinia and overlap basins are separated from certain North American rocks by oceanic Cache Creek terrane
