Alberta is an important oil and gas producing region within Canada oil & gas exploration areas include;

  • Clearwater heavy oil – The Marten Hills region, located about 200 kilometres north of Edmonton, is a target for conventional heavy oil with “enough consolidation/rock integrity to be well suited for multi-lateral, open hole and un-stimulated completion” (no fracking).
  • Alberta Deep Basin – “The Alberta Deep Basin continues to host some of the most prolific gas wells in Western Canada,” analysts wrote, with the average initial production rate of the top 30 wells at 15 million cubic feet per day.
  • Duvernay East Shale Basin – Another hot spot for recent Crown land sales, production has grown from the Duvernay East Shale Basin surrounding Red Deer, Alta. from virtually nil to about 4,800 bbls/d in under two years, analysts said.

  • Montney: Alberta liquids-rich – Both light oil and condensate production are driving growth on the Alberta side of the Montney play, analysts wrote, with a 20 percent increase in condensate and a 50 percent increase in light oil in October 2017 compared to October 2016.
  • Multi-zone oil at Progress – Light oil production is on an upswing from the Charlie Lake Formation and Lower Montney Turbidite near Progress in west central Alberta, Peters & Co. noted.
  • Viking light oil – The Viking light oil play in Alberta and Saskatchewan continues to grow, driven by top operators Raging River Exploration and Teine Energy, with play production averaging about 81,000 bbls/d in October 2017 – an increase of about 51 percent compared to October 2016.
