Alberta is known for the oil sands, but the Duvernay shale formation is threatening to take the : Joshua Bondy. Geotechnical investigations are performed by geotechnical engineers or engineering geologists to obtain information on the physical properties of soil earthworks and foundations for proposed structures and for repair of distress to earthworks and structures caused by subsurface conditions. This type of investigation is called a site investigation. Additionally, geotechnical investigations are. baseline groundwater quality testing. These tasks led to the findings that some of the most dangerous potential pollutants, including methane, total petroleum hydrocarbons, nitrate, volatile organic compounds, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, alpha particles, beta particles, and gamma radiation, are poorly characterized in the region, if at all.

The book provides an elaborate treatment of groundwater prospecting and management covering remote sensing, geological–geophysical cum hydrogeological studies, exploration (geological and geophysical), development (well logging techniques, pump test, its analysis and applications in well design), contamination (pollution of groundwater) and regulatory legislations regarding groundwater.

Most of them are reflected as hydrogeomorphic units. Groundwater exploration is a very unique exercise. The purpose of this study is water prospectivity modeling (WPM) for recognizing karstic water-bearing zones by using analyses of geo-exploration data in Kal-Qorno valley, located in Author: A.

Balasubramanian. Steps Of Subsurface Exploration Program [Stage 3] 7 3.A preliminary site investigation: In this phase a few borings are made or a test pit is opened to establish in a general manner the stratification, types of soil to be expected, and possibly the location of the groundwater table.

One or File Size: 1MB. GROUND WATER Ground water is a mineral that occurs in the subsurface within sediments, rocks, desertic sand, ice & snow. It gets replenishedIt gets from meteoric precipitation. Ground water is most widely distributed precious resource of the Earth.

Among the natural water resources, ground water forms an invisible component of the system. An electrical resistivity survey, down-hole logging and pumping test were conducted in Delta Central District of Nigeria to determine the groundwater potential and aquifer characteristics of the study area.

Twenty vertical electrical soundings of the Schlumberger configuration were performed with an ABEM SAS by: Site Investigation Phases • Phase-IV: Write a report • A clear description of the soils at the site • Methods of exploration • Soil profile • Test methods and results • The location of the groundwater.

To be successful the hydrogeologist must have knowledge of both the geologic conditions of the area and their effect on the storage and movement of groundwater systems.

The total character of the environmental setting determines which exploration techniques are necessary to. Duvernay is characterized by an average porosity of %, an average permeability of nD, and an average of % TOC. The Duvernay Shales have been credited as the source rock for many of the large Devonian oil and gas pools in Alberta.

The most famous is The Leduc Field discovered in The manual ‘Understanding Groundwater & Wells in manual drilling’ complements the 4 technical training handbooks and highlights those essential subjects which are relevant to manual drilling, geo-hydrology, hygiene, well installation and well development in practice, in simple and.

New exploration tools and techniques for a breakthrough paradigm of regional groundwater occurrence Fresh water is undoubtedly our most precious resource aside from the air we breathe, and the only commodity whose cost has steadily risen over time.

At the same time, our understanding of the origins, pathways, and recharge mechanisms of the earths most valuable economic mineral-groundwater. Southwest Groundwater Surveyors has unmatched expertise and experience when it comes to aquifer search in the American Southwest.

Our specialty lies in using time tested methods and seismoelectric instruments for detecting underground water before well drilling begins. Thus, eliminating the cost of drilling expensive test holes. Vertical electrical sounding (VES) is considered as one of the most common methods in groundwater exploration.

Twenty Schlumberger VES’s with maximum current electrode spacing of m were carried out in the coastal zone of Shalateen area at the alluvial fan of Wadi by: 3. Schiner, G.R.,Ground-water exploration and test pumping in the Halma-Lake Bronson area, Kittson County, Minnesota: U.S.

The organic-rich Duvernay Formation was deposited within an interior seaway in upper Devonian time; covering a large portion of the western Canadian sedimentary basin.

Net shale isopachs within the play area, for the most part, range between 25 and 60 metres; however, over 90 meters thickness has been identified.

Regionally, the File Size: KB. The EPA, the USGS, and the National Association of Groundwater Scientists and Engineers (AGWSE) have each recognized us for providing pioneering technical leadership in the field of exploration and development of groundwater resources from fractured bedrock aquifers, and as a leader in groundwater protection for public water supplies.

Figure 1. Location of the Duvernay Shale in Alberta and Canada. Description: This map that shows the location of the Duvernay Shale study area. Calgary, Alberta, is located just south of the study area's southern end while Grande Prairie, Alberta, is located at the study area's northwest end.

Geophysical Investigations • Groundwater Exploration project pass through various surveys. • The main objective of these surveys is to study and understand the hydrological cycle of the region, to understand overall concept of type, nature, no: aquifers and quality of groundwater.

Instrumentation GDD Inc. is a world leader in high-tech geophysical instrumentation for mining and exploration geophysics, groundwater exploration, geotechnical investigations and other related fields.

SinceGDD has developed, manufactured and sold a wide range of Electromagnetic (EM) and Resistivity/Induced Polarization geophysical instruments. Figure 1: Area of unconventional Duvernay exploration and development highlighted in red.

Conclusions Presently, this is an emerging shale liquids play in Canada. At this early stage there are only a few horizontal wells with frac stimulation and production tests; so. Exploration and Testing.

How will that affect the flow of groundwater in the area between the two. Groundwater branch offices are located at Biratnagar, Lahan, Mahottari, Birgunj, Butwal, Dang, Nepalganj and Dhangadhi. These GBOs are basically limited to terai plains and few valleys for irrigation purposes.

GWRDP has done Groundwater investigation, Aquifer, Test, Water quality test and delineation of recharge area (to some extent).

We have the only method for seeing groundwater directly without drilling test wells. Our groundwater exploration surveys can see water underground to an average depth of feet below ground surface.

Before you have your groundwater well drilled, contact Southwest Groundwater Surveyors and schedule your groundwater exploration survey today. Many of Canada's most sensitive ecosystems are dependent on groundwater and this book is a comprehensive assessment of Canada's groundwater resources.

The text features the work of more than 40 noted groundwater scientists and was compiled and edited by Alfonso Rivera, Ph.D., the chief hydrogeologist for the Geological Survey of Canada.5/5(1).

Encana has obtained core and reservoir data on each well and is encouraged by the results, which confirm initial expectations.

Groundwater is the water present beneath Earth's surface in soil pore spaces and in the fractures of rock formations.A unit of rock or an unconsolidated deposit is called an aquifer when it can yield a usable quantity of water.

The depth at which soil pore spaces or fractures and voids in rock become completely saturated with water is called the water table.

[George R Schiner; Minnesota. Division of Waters,; Minnesota. Today, more than half of Western Canada’s oil and natural gas wells are being drilled horizontally, and sincean estimated 80 percent of all oil wells placed on production in Alberta utilized horizontal drilling techniques.

Hydraulic fracturing has been safely used on overoil and gas wells in Alberta since the technology was introduced in the s. The estimates for the total in-place resources in the Duvernay Formation are 10 12 m 3 to 10 12 m 3 ( to Trillion Cubic Feet (Tcf)) of raw gas, with a best estimate of 10 12 m 3 ( Tcf); 10 9 m 3 to 10 9 m 3 ( to billion barrels (Bbbls)) of natural gas liquids, with a best estimate of to 10 9 m 3.
