Hydrogeologic data and interpretations of the foreland strata from the base of the Mannville to the top of the Cardium in the Deep Basin in west-central Alberta are presented with the intent to develop a hydrostratigraphic framework for the Deep Basin, to develop an understanding of the genetics and dynamics of the Deep Basin along its updip edge, and to define zones of potentially gas-charged reservoir continuity. The results of the study includes two montages that describe a genetic model of the Deep Basin. As well, each hydrostratigraphic unit is described by three map suites as follows:
- Hydrogeology: Water and Gas Head Map, Pressure versus Elevation Graph and Water Salinity (TDS) Map. Pool outlines and extensions, aquifers, and Deep Basin edges are shown.
- DST: DST Recovery Map (includes all DSTs and AOFs), A-C Quality DST Recovery Map and Pressure versus Elevation Graph.
- Chemistry: CO2, API Gravity, and Wet Gas Index Maps.
The intent of this report is to describe the methodologies used in the study as well as data sources; quality assessment; and quality coding, data management and data interpretation criteria.
