Diligent reservoir characterization is the key to successful production in most unconventional plays. Unconventional resource plays require one to adapt to the scale of observation (1 nm to 1 μm) and to use special imagery techniques (e.g., scanning electron microscope [SEM], ion-milled SEM) to characterize the nature and classes of the pore system. For the Duvernay Formation, a quantitative approach to porosity typing and measurement was conducted on two- and three-dimensional focused ion beam SEM images. These images showed that between 69% and 85% of the porosity is kerogen porosity, with an average of 75% for the studied wells. It...
