Deep saline aquifer study being developed in Alberta by Canadian Discovery Ltd.

March 7, 2022  By Ground Water Canada

Calgary – A fully integrated subsurface study to help clients characterize the suitability of selected Lower Paleozoic deep saline aquifers for carbon storage in Alberta is being developed by Canadian Discovery Ltd. (CDL) .

Lower Paleozoic aquifers are often below most hydrocarbon exploration targets. The study will be delivered via an interactive, web-based Spotfire platform. The deliverables will include a stratigraphic framework, reservoir parameters, aquifer volumetric estimates and CO2 storage capacity estimates.

Initial delivery of Cambrian units is scheduled for mid-April 2022 to coincide with the formulation of individual Full Project Proposals as requested by the Government of Alberta. Additional stratigraphic intervals will be evaluated and delivered as completed.


The study will help clients prepare geological and engineering materials for the Government of Alberta’s Request for Full Project Proposals (RFPP) relating to Carbon Sequestration Tenure Management to be issued on March 4, 2022.
