Osum Grosmont Carbonates Presentation Wins Award

In early May, more than 4000 geologists and geophysicists descended upon Calgary to attend GeoConvention 2013.  There was a superb lineup of technical sessions, as well as a world-class core conference held at the ERCB Core Research Centre.

The core conference showcased integrated core and poster displays focused on:

  • Conventional hydrocarbon systems
  • Unconventional hydrocarbon systems, including shale gas and oil sands
  • Sedimentology of clastic and carbonate rocks.

Many of the Osum team were in attendance, including Alex MacNeil, Senior Geologist (Carbonates).  Alex presented his poster display: Recognizing Potential in the Bitumen Saturated Dolostones of the Upper Devonian Nisku Formation Through Comparison with the Grosmont Formation (co-authored by Jen Russel-Houston and Ken Gray).  Click this link to read the published abstract from the conference.

We recently learned that the presentation has been chosen by peers at GeoConvention 2013 to receive the Best Core Presentation Award.  This award will be presented at the CSPG luncheon in early June.

Here is a picture of Alex in action at the conference:
