2009 Horn River Shales Playbook
Far northeastern British Columbia's Horn River basin is home to tremendous, very thick Middle Devonian shales. These shales--Muskwa, Otter Park, Klua and Evie-are in the earliest stages of development in a region that has no conventional oil and gas production. Yet, the basin is on the brink of becoming a major unconventional field that will have a long-term impact on continental natural-gas supply.
The Horn River Playbook address the play everyone is talking about and delivers answers to essential questions on reservoirs, active operators, economics, key technologies, and infrastructure issues. Includes a wall-sized, full color map highlighting fields, drilling activity, and significant wells.
48 pages. Also includes 18" x 24" folded Horn River map.
