The present paper provides a case study of the assessment of the potential for CO 2 storage in the deep saline aquifers of the Bécancour region in southern Québec.

This assessment was based on a hydrogeological and petrophysical characterization using existing and newly acquired core and well log data from hydrocarbon exploration by: The Petite-Nation River Valley (NTDB mapsheets G10, G11 and G14) is located in the southwestern part of Québec (Canada), in the Outaouais region, at the junction of the St-Lawrence lowlands in the south and the highlands of the Canadian Shield to the north (fig.

The GHEs were installed in exploration wells near Montreal and Quebec City, Canada, at different locations in the St. Lawrence Lowlands, where the subsurface is composed of Ordovician sedimentary.

In Quebec (Canada), the Utica Shale has been identified as having unconventional gas production potential. However, there has been a moratorium on shale gas exploration since The work reported here was aimed at defining baseline concentrations of methane in shallow aquifers of the St.

The aim of this paper is to document gas seepage in the marine realm of the St.

Lawrence Estuary in eastern Canada and to show that: (1) many seeps are located over the autochthonous rocks of the St. Lawrence platform domain; (2) the seismic signature of the seeps found in the Laurentian Channel may be traced down to the Paleozoic bedrock suggesting a thermogenic origin for the gas; and (3 Cited by: The purpose of this study was to establish links between groundwater quality, groundwater residence times, and regional geology in the St.

Defining temperature at depth to identify geothermal resources relies on the evaluation of the Earth heat flow based on equilibrium temperature measurements as well as thermal conductivity and heat generation rate assessment. Such high-quality geothermal data can be sparse over the region of interest.

Well Logs Deep water sequence stratigraphy relies heavily on the use of gamma logs, in which the high values in Gamma signal are equated with the reduced sedimentation associated with high positions of the sea.

Well logs with high Gamma signals are traditionally taken to to be equated with maximum flooding surfaces and are often associated with condensed sections. This is the case of the St. Lawrence Lowlands sedimentary basin cover km 2 to the south of Québec, Canada, and enclosing only three wells up to a depth of m with equilibrium heat flow measurements.

By Sophie & Naomi $ Climate This region has a continental climate (meaning that the summers are very hot and the winters are very cold.) Precipitation ranges from about mm per.

The Saint Lawrence Lowlands of Canada is a bowl-shaped area found in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec in Canada. During the last glacial period, the ice sheet pushed the area downwards, and the soil deposited deeper into the Earth.

After the ice sheet melted, the area took a shape of the Lake and with the presence of the deep fault line, the Author: Khushboo Sheth. GEOSCAN supports the mission of Natural Resources Canada through the timely access to information.

With original-gas-in-place (OGIP) estimates ranging from to Bcf per section, the deep play is considered to be promising. process. Subsurface pressure is calculated with the pressure gradient of the St. Lawrence Lowlands basin based on the well data.

The calculated pressure gradient is MPa/m: P = depth × MPa/m × (5) CO2 density in depth (2) Once the temperature and pressure of the reservoir rocks are known, they are fed into a FORTRAN.

The Gulf of St. Lawrence Lowland Forests overlay the Maritime Lowlands, the Annapolis-Minas Lowlands, Prince Edward Island, and the Iles-de-la-Madeleine (TEC,and ) (ESWG ).

These ecoregions are all part of the Atlantic Maritime Ecozone, in the Acadian forest region. The Great Lakes and St.

Lawrence lowlands are the low-lying areas around the banks of the St. Lawrence and the shores of the Great Lakes. this area covers all of the South part of Ontario, the Eastern edge of Quebec, PEI and Western Labrador. The St. Lawrence Lowlands are mostly composted of glacial landforms: glacial lake bottoms and shorelines, till plains, moraines, drumlins, eskers, and giant spillways imprinted by glacial streams.

Much of the St Lawrence Lowlands is made up of plains and hills. Water from Georgian Bay, Lake St Clair, Niagara Escarpment, Niagara Escarpment, Niagara Falls, and Niagara River flow into the Great Lakes and the St Lawrence River.

The St Lawrence Lowlands are lower than surrounding areas. The St. Lawrence River is in a seismically active zone where fault reactivation is believed to occur along late Proterozoic to early Palaeozoic normal faults related to the opening of Iapetus Ocean.

The faults in the area are rift related and are called the Saint Lawrence rift system. The St. Lawrence Valley is a physiographic province of the. The purpose of this paper is to give a brief description of the stratigraphy of the Lower and Middle Ordovician formations of the St.

Lawrence Lowlands together with a short summary of the historical geology of the time. The basis for the paper is the literature on the subject, as the author's personal investigation has been restricted to one summer's work in a small section of the Lowlands. Add ons Montreal is the 2 nd largest city in C anada, the city of M ontreal is on an island in the St.

In normal stratigraphic sections, the Utica black calcereous shale has an average thickness of ft. sedimentary units of the St. Lawrence Lowlands (Quebec, Canada) associated with CO2 injection into the sandstone reservoir of the Covey Hill Formation. The spatial variations in fluid pressur e, shear strain and vertical displacement are calculated for different injection rates using a simplified.
