Stress Regime at Acid-Gas Injection Operations in Western Canada

Regulatory agencies in Western Canada impose safe limits on the injection pressure to maintain the pressure around the injection well below the fracturing threshold of the rocks. An evaluation of the stress regime at the acid-gas injection sites in ... Show Abstract

Regional Evaluation of the Coal Bed Methane Potential in the Plains and Foothills of Alberta, Stratigraphy and Rank Study

Abstract: The coal resource in place in Alberta is tremendous by whichever estimate is used. One such zone, the Paleocene Ardley coal zone, has calculated resources in the order of 425 gigatonnes along a 250-mile (400 kilometre) subcrop and dipping, to more than 2950 feet (900 m) depth, 90 miles (150 km) southwest into the Alberta Syncline. The geologic model developed for the Ardley Coal zone involves a continental setting in an alluvial plain environment characterized by widespread peat swamps that were far removed from marine conditions. Due to extremely low relief, relatively rapid subsidence and sediment starvation, thick and extensive peaks developed. In general the seams thicken and more seams are present with increasing depth. These deeper coal resources may contain large volumes of gas.
