With an estimated 406 billion barrels of oil place, the Grosmont carbonates could make Canada the number one oil reserves country in the world, once their commercial viability has been proven. Osum has been expanding its land position in the southern part of the trend and now has over 170,000 net acres of carbonate holdings, putting the company at the forefront of this emerging development.
But because the carbonates are a relatively novel type of geological formation (that is, so far as Canada’s heavy oil industry is concerned), we are often asked about the differences between carbonate reservoirs and clastic reservoirs (i.e. traditional bitumen-bearing sand formations).
Now you can see the carbonates up close by joining us on a trip to the core lab. Osum’s Geoscience Manager, Jen Russel-Houston and her team take you through Carbonates 101 in these short clips. Who says only geologists can get excited about rocks?
