You will notice that all 3 have a nonporous rock cap and a porous rock source. The porous rock allows the oil to seep into the cavity (like a sponge) and the nonporous rock prevents the oil from leaving (like a cap).
The up fold or anticline in the layers of the earth's crust form the reservoir.
The vertical movement of the earth's crust forms a v-shaped reservoir.
Has a former limestone reef as its porous rock feeding the reservoir.
Geologists have many tricks to search for oil…
Expensive! And will have one of 3 results:
The removal of oil and gas from the ground proceeds in one or two ways:
*only about 60 % of oil in most deposits can be recovered. Increasing that by 5% would the same as finding another large oil field
Production concentrated in Alberta and adjoining provinces: Saskatchewan/BC
Newfoundland and Labrador became significant producers in 1997 with opening of Hibernia offshore oil project. Production will increase as additional projects are developed.
