  • Petrologic and geochemical attributes of calcite cementation,
           dolomitization and dolomite recrystallization: an example from the
           Mississippian Pekisko Formation, west-central Alberta
    • Authors: Adam, J; Al-Aasm, I. S.
      Pages: 235 - 261
      Abstract: Carbonate rocks of the Pekisko Formation make up an important reservoir in west-central Alberta, especially in fields along the Pekisko subcrop edge. They represent a transgressive-regressive carbonate platform sequence comprised of upward shallowing facies, which subsequently underwent extreme erosion leading to the development of karst topography. As a result, diagenetic alteration, mainly through dolomitization and karstification, has affected reservoir characterization for most of the carbonate facies.Several generations of calcite cementation and dolomite are the result of complex diagenetic changes. Calcite cements include isopachous fibrous, equant drusy mosaic, pendant/meniscus, blocky spar, syntaxial, fibrous, and bladed. These cements formed during early and late diagenetic events; pre-syn- and post exposure in shallow and deeper burial realms. There are five types of dolomite identified in the Pekisko Formation, based on petrographic and geochemical analyses: 1) pervasive, fine to coarse crystalline, subhedral to anhedral replacive dolomite; 2) void-filling, coarse crystalline, euhedral dolomite cement; 3) selective, fine to coarse crystalline, euhedral to anhedral dolomite; 4) dissolution seam-associated, fine crystalline, euhedral dolomite; and 5) saddle dolomite. Dolomite types 1), 3) and 4) are interpreted to have formed early in the diagenetic history and subsequently recrystallized, whereas void-filling, coarse crystalline, euhedral dolomite and saddle dolomite formed later in deeper burial setting. Petrographic evidence for recrystallization of dolomite types, excluding void-filling and saddle dolomite, includes: etching, displayed mainly on euhedral crystals; dissolved cores on many crystals of varying shapes; non-planar crystal boundaries, exclusively in pervasive dolomites; and coarsening crystal size, evident in both pervasive and selective dolomite types. Geochemical evidence, such as pronounced negative shift in oxygen isotopes (by up to 8 VPDB) and enrichment of radiogenic Sr isotopes further support this interpretation. There is a definite negative trend whereby wells closest to the subcrop edge have the most negative isotopic values and those farthest away show the least depletion. This trend in 18O isotope values points to recrystallization of the earlier formed dolomites.

  • Hyperspectral imaging as an aid for facies analysis in massive-appearing
           sediments: a case study from the middle McMurray Formation
    • Authors: Shchepetkina, A; Speta, M, Gingras, M. K, Rivard, B, Pemberton, S. G.
      Pages: 262 - 278
      Abstract: The paleoenvironments represented by the middle McMurray Formation have been actively debated within the last few decades. Highly detailed core studies have investigated the ichnology of the middle McMurray to gain insight on the paleodepositional conditions of these sediments. However, oil saturation makes diagnostic sedimentary and biogenic features difficult to see in core surfaces. Following on earlier published research, shortwave infrared (SWIR) hyperspectral imagery is collected, analyzed and compared to a previously studied McMurray Formation core. The method is tested on one well to be applied to the future studies. SWIR imagery significantly enhances the visibility of physical and biological sedimentary structures, especially within coarse-grained, bitumen-saturated intervals. The new observations provide support for interpretations derived from the direct study of the core and, in some cases, provide new observations that refine the core interpretation. Specifically, based on additional trace-fossil observations, lithosome L1 (high- and low-angle cross-stratified sandstone) is interpreted to represent bioturbation consistent with the middle estuary rather than the inner estuary. Deposition of lithosomes L2a (sandstone-dominated IHS) and L2b (equally interbedded sandstone and mudstone IHS) likely occurred in the middle estuary instead of inner to middle estuary. Interpretation of depositional locale is not changed for L2c, whereas L2d (mudstone-dominated burrowed IHS) is now interpreted to be deposited in the middle estuary instead of the previously suggested inner-middle estuary.

  • The Garbutt Formation of Liard Basin, British Columbia: a potential
           liquids-rich play
    • Authors: Ferri, F; McMechan, M, Ardakani, O. H, Sanei, H.
      Pages: 279 - 306
      Abstract: In Liard Basin of northern British Columbia, syn-depositional motion on the Bovie structure resulted in greater thicknesses of Cretaceous sediments. The Early Cretaceous Garbutt Formation was deposited during the initiation of a major marine transgression. Organic-rich shales and siltstones in its lower part record maximum flooding and have been informally termed the Radioactive Zone (RZ). The Garbutt Formation is dominated by shales and siltstones and is here subdivided into three informal units; the lower Garbutt Formation (LGF), the succeeding RZ and the upper Garbutt Formation (UGF). The combined thickness of the Radioactive Zone and lower Garbutt Formation is 40 to over 120 m thick and can be at greater than 2000 m depth in Liard Basin. The lower Garbutt Formation is not recognized east of the Bovie structure and the RZ is considerably thinner or absent locally, suggesting this area remained high relative to Liard Basin. Total organic carbon and Rock-Eval data suggest that the RZ is a good to very good source rock and that the LGF is also a good source rock. Organic matter is dominantly Type II kerogen, although more terrestrial Type III input becomes prevalent in western parts of the basin. Thermal maturity inferred from Tmax, in addition to hydrogen index levels, indicate that these rocks are in the oil window in northern Liard Basin and in the wet gas window within central Liard Basin. Porosities average 8% and matrix compositions average 39 wt.% quartz, 4 wt.% feldspar and calcite and 53 wt.% clays (illite/mica, kaolinite and chlorite). The properties of the RZ and LGF indicate that a potential liquids-rich shale gas play may occur within central Liard Basin.

  • GEOLOGICAL NOTE: Sukunka Formation: a new Middle Devonian
           lithostratigraphic unit, northeastern British Columbia, Canada
    • Authors: Hedinger A. S.
      Pages: 307 - 326
      Abstract: The term "Sukunka Formation" is proposed for a 113 to 169 metre thick mixed siliciclastic and carbonate unit lying between the Middle Devonian Stone and Dunedin Formations in the Rocky Mountain Front Ranges of northeastern British Columbia. The unit is best developed near the headwaters of the Sukunka River, where it outcrops along a series of closely spaced imbricate thrusts. In the type area, it can be divided into three (informal) members: lower, middle and upper. The lower member overlies the Stone Formation unconformably and consists of inter-bedded orthoquartzite, dolostone and sandy dolostone. It is overlain by the middle member that consists predominantly of brick red weathering siltstones interbedded with minor amounts of dolostone. These ‘red beds’ are readily recognizable in the field and can be used elsewhere in the area to identify thrust imbricates. The upper member consists of a series of thick to massive bedded, well cross-bedded and resistant weathering clean quartzose sandstones which gradationally overlie the middle member. The top of the formation is also disconformable. It is transgressed and overlain by the basal calcareous shales and limes of the Dd-1 member of the Dunedin Formation. However, lag deposits from the Sukunka Formation occur within the basal calcareous shales and limes of the Dd-1 member. This condition is thought to reflect progressive transgression of higher stratigraphic levels of the Sukunka Formation to the east by the rising waters that led to accumulation of the Dunedin Formation. Diagnostic fossils have not been recognized in the Sukunka Formation. Presently, it is dated as early Middle Devonian based solely on stratigraphic position. In the subsurface, in the same stratigraphic position between the Stone and Dunedin formations, unnamed argillaceous, sandy and silty carbonates have also been identified. These, further to the east, may be equivalent to the unnamed detrital unit of the Chinchaga Formation.

  • Impact of oil emplacement on diagenesis in Cretaceous oil sands
    • Authors: Bata, T; Parnell, J, Samaila, N. K, Still, J.
      Pages: 327 - 342
      Abstract: Seventeen thin sections of Cretaceous oil sands from the Neuquén Basin (Argentina), Sergipe-Alagoas Basin (Brazil), Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (Canada), Junggar Basin (China), Lower Saxony Basin (Germany), Kangerlussuaq Basin (Greenland), Arabian Basin (Kuwait), Chad Basin (Nigeria), Dahomey Basin (Nigeria), Western Moray Firth Basin (UK), Wessex Basin (UK) and Utah (USA) were examined using the scanning electron microscope (SEM) to improve our understanding on how oil emplacement impairs the progress of diagenesis. Our results show that diagenetic processes affecting sandstones prior to oil emplacement include burial/compaction, silica/calcite cementation, calcite replacement of detrital grains/cements as well as the development of silica overgrowth. Most diagenetic processes were inferred to cease upon oil emplacement into the pores of the sandstones, however, diagenetic processes such as the alteration of detrital grains/cements and precipitation of authigenic minerals/metallic compounds were observed to occur after oil emplacement into the pores of the sandstones. Oil was emplaced in some of the studied Cretaceous oil sands at a relatively early stage when the sandstones were not compacted or cemented. Such Cretaceous oil sands were observed to have had anomalously high porosities of above 38% prior to oil emplacement. The only cement observed in these oil sands are the viscous heavy oils (bitumens) associated with them. Upon extraction of these heavy oils, the oil sands collapse into unconsolidated sands. Occurrence of these bitumen supported Cretaceous sands implies availability of migrating oils while some of the Cretaceous sands were depositing in various basins. Oil emplacement occurred in some of the studied Cretaceous oil sands after the sandstones had undergone some diagenetic processes which did not destroy all their pore spaces. Such Cretaceous oil sands were observed to have had moderate to high porosities of 10%–30% prior to oil emplacement, with some of these sandstones showing evidence of silica overgrowth. Emplacement of oil into the pores of such sandstones is believed to have stopped further development of the silica overgrowth that would have led to the total loss of porosity in these Cretaceous reservoir sands. In some of the studied Cretaceous oil sands, oil emplacement occurred when the sands had experienced a long history of diagenetic events leading to almost total loss of porosity. Common diagenetic features observed in such Cretaceous oil sands include sutured quartz grain-grain contacts and quartz overgrowth.
