The Devonian Black Shales of Mackenzie Valley are a Valuable Repository of Information on Greenhouse-Epoch Ocean, Not Only the Shale Hydrocarbon Prospect

Presenter: Dr. Pavel Kabanov

The Phanerozoic sedimentary archives of the greenhouse condition of our planet provide valuable information on the warmer atmosphere-ocean systems unexperienced by Homo sapiens, but considered a potential for near future if the drawdown of GHG (green house gases) will fail to follow optimistic projections.

Porosity Characterization, Evolution, and Controls in the Devonian Horn River Group, Central Mackenzie Valley, Northwest Territories

Presenter: Maya LaGrange

Despite being a valuable step in the evaluation of resource potential in prospective unconventional reservoirs, porosity in the mudstone intervals of the Horn River Group of the Central Mackenzie Valley has not yet been studied in detail.
