Carbon Emission and Proposed Sequestration in Alberta

There are several ongoing carbon sequestration projects active in Western Canada, and 26 new projects proposed in Alberta as of 2023. We know that Canada emits 708 megatons and sequestration targets for proposed projects vary between 1 megaton and 40 megatons of Carbon Dioxide, it is relatively hard to assess the size of emissions and […]

The Longest Well in Canada

In December of 2023, Tamarack Valley drilled eleven 2-mile lateral legs in their 102/03-18-075-25W4 Clearwater well in the heart of Marten Hills. The open-hole well extends to a combined 33,636 meters from the 11 legs drilled in 3 stacks, placed in a wine rack pattern in the 20 meter thick sand package.

Frankenwells (Complex Well Designs)

Well design gets complicated and extremely efficient in mature basins such as the WCSB. From well established to convoluted multilaterals, up-tracks, high turns, wine-racks, cubes to chicken legs, paper clips and other weird and wonderful designs, this is a collection of technology pushing developments. Below you can find a gallery of some of the wildest […]

Paperclip Wells

Starting with Shell in 2019, a few Permian basin drillers adopted this striking well design. It looks like an unraveled paperclip, and has been called “horseshoe well’ or “U-Turn well”. Shell adopted the “horseshoe” well design at well NEELIE 1-85 LOV-4H to address technical issues, as well as lease rights (source). These wells usually target […]

Carbon Sequestration Projects in Canada

Carbon capture and sequestration is the main building block of carbon neutral development in oil and gas and a host of other industries. Underground sequestration is a growing industry, spurred by operator efforts towards net zero and government incentives for decarbonization. With 3 sizable projects operational, Canada captures and stores about 3,000,000 tonnes of carbon […]
