They extend throughout most of the 3-D survey. All horizons were successfully correlated throughout the field fault block area. For the down thrown block north of the field, only the A00, A40 and B00 were correlated. Table 2-2 lists the horizon depths, seismic time and available velocity control data for each well.

P-03 H-54 D-43 G-33 A40 Amplitude Anomaly Outline C-42 Figure 2-11: Time Structure Map for the A40 Horizon TIME TO DEPTH CONVERSION Background One of the major challenges of time-to-depth conversion at Taglu is the presence of a thick, variable permafrost layer down to a depth of about 500 m. The permafrost layer is generally a high-velocity zone, but significant melting has occurred near major waterbodies since the end of the last glacial period. The partial melting, or thermal degradation, of the permafrost has created pockets of near-surface low acoustic velocities, which can radically distort the shape of the seismic time surface relative to depth Amplitude Anomalies At Taglu, additional information is available in the form of bright spots or amplitude anomalies (see Figure 2-12) that correlate to tested A pool gas. The gas water contact of these reservoirs is tightly depth constrained by the C-42 well Imperial Oil Resources Limited August 2004

This method involved creating a multilayer velocity model in which velocities vary spatially and as a function of seismic travel time. The basic depth conversion model was built in three stages: 1. Surface to base of permafrost seismic velocity functions calibrated to well control. 2. Base of permafrost to top of reservoir linear increase of velocity with depth (V 0 k method). 3. Within the reservoir interval velocity method. Following basic depth conversion and well calibration, final depth map adjustments were made to match the mapped outline of the amplitude anomaly (see Figure 2-13).

5 GEOLOGY, GEOPHYSICS AND APPLICATION FOR APPROVAL OF THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR TAGLU FIELD PROJECT DESCRIPTION SCOPE Subsurface rock properties and other reservoir parameters are used in: hydrocarbon volume-in-place calculations the geological model the reservoir simulation model These parameters include: net sand thickness the net effective reservoir that contains hydrocarbons porosity (phi or ɸ) the percentage or fraction of free space, within the total volume of rock, that is available to contain fluids fluid type and saturation fluid type, such as gas, oil or water, proportions within porosity and their distribution permeability (k) the degree of interconnection between pore spaces that allows fluids to move through rock. Permeability is usually measured in millidarcies (md). This section describes the data acquired and the analytical procedures used to determine these properties LOG DATA AND ANALYSIS The rock properties listed previously cannot be determined directly in wellbores. Instead, they must be derived or interpreted from other physical measurements that can be made within wellbores. Within the petroleum industry, the most commonly used physical measurements include: electrical resistivity and potential acoustic interval transit time density natural radioactivity hydrogen content August 2004 Imperial Oil Resources Limited 2-19

6 2.3.2 LOG DATA AND ANALYSIS (cont d) These measurements are collected by lowering various combinations of sensor equipment, i.e., logging tools, on cables to the bottom of a wellbore. Physical property measurements are made continuously as the logging tool is pulled back up the well at a controlled rate. Typically, these recorded measurements are displayed as a curve, called a log, which changes with depth. Interpreting these physical measurements to determine rock properties is called log or petrophysical analysis. To derive the required rock properties, such as porosity or fluid saturation, from the measurable physical properties, log analysts use relationships established between the desired rock properties and measured physical properties. These property relationships have been obtained from extensive laboratory measurements and studies of many different rock and fluid combinations. If no other information is available, these rock property relationships can be applied by making general comparisons to these standard relationships for different rock types, such as sandstone, limestone and others. However, more accurate results can be obtained if the measured log curves can be directly calibrated to actual property measurements of the rock being evaluated CORE DATA AND ANALYSIS To obtain rock samples for measuring and calibrating, petroleum companies periodically retrieve lengths of core while drilling through reservoirs. Recovered cores are typically several metres long, and samples from them can be analyzed in laboratories to directly measure properties, such as porosity and permeability. However, because coring is more difficult, time consuming and considerably more expensive than drilling and logging, cores are not gathered continuously through a reservoir, or even in all wells. Instead, representative core samples are obtained across a field to calibrate log responses to measured core properties. These calibrations are then used to extrapolate rock properties over the entire reservoir, using log information. There are two types of core analysis: routine core analysis special core analysis (SCAL) Routine core analysis consists of measuring porosity and permeability with air at standard conditions. Special core analysis includes measuring electrical properties, capillary pressure and relative permeability, usually at net overburden conditions. Electrical property measurements were used at Taglu to correlate electric log data with measured porosity. Capillary pressure measurements were used to determine water saturation Imperial Oil Resources Limited August 2004

8 2.3.5 NET SAND DETERMINATION Taglu reservoir intervals comprise interbedded successions of sandstone, siltstone and shale. These rock types contain variable amounts of siliclastic grains, which are composed of minerals or rock fragments, and clay. In sandstone, the grain component dominates, and clay content is minor. In shale, the grain component is small and the clay component dominates. However, between sandstone and shale, a compositional spectrum, which includes siltstone, exists. The transition between these rock types is gradational, particularly between fine-grained sandstone and siltstone. This distinction is important, as siltstone is an ineffective reservoir rock that does not contribute to production because of low permeability, even though it contains some gas in pore spaces. Consequently, siltstone pore volumes need to be excluded from volume estimates. The method used to distinguish siltstone from fine-grained sandstone was based on the amount of clay or shale contained within the rock. The shale volume (V sh ) cutoff was determined using the gamma-ray logs calibrated to core measurements and well test results. Porosity values were not determined for rocks above the V sh cutoff POROSITY After using the V sh method to exclude nonreservoir intervals, total porosity in the Taglu wells was determined using density and sonic log data calibrated to ambient core porosity measurements (see Figure 2-14). These analyses show that calibrated log porosity values in the Taglu sandstones range between 5 and 25% Porosity Overburden Correction PERMEABILITY Most Taglu core porosity measurements were taken at ambient surface conditions. However, porous rocks shrink slightly when buried, because of the compression from the weight of the overlying rocks, i.e., the overburden pressure. Therefore, porosity values in the Taglu reservoir need to be corrected for overburden conditions. The correction factor is obtained by taking samples from the core and measuring porosity at both the ambient and the overburden pressure conditions in the reservoir. The ratio of these measurements is the amount of reduction in porosity required to match reservoir conditions. At Taglu, linear regression analysis resulted in a correction multiplier of (see Figure 2-15), which was used to reduce the calibrated porosity values. After corrections, the average porosity of the field on a hydrocarbon pore volume weighted basis is 15.6%. Permeability models for the Taglu reservoirs were developed from porosity and permeability measurements taken from core samples. The core data points were sorted based on the interpreted environment of deposition, or facies, as outlined in Section 2.1, Geological Description. Statistical analysis of the data revealed four logical groups, based on the original interpretation of the environment of deposition (see Table 2-5) Imperial Oil Resources Limited August 2004

10 2.3.7 PERMEABILITY (cont d) Using regression analysis, porosity to permeability transforms were developed for each data group (see Figure 2-16 for an example of one of the groups). Table 2-5: Facies Type Combinations Group Facies Types 1 Fluvial and nonmarine to tidal 2 Distributary channel, inner stream mouth bar 3 Outer stream mouth bar, proximal delta front 4 Prodelta, all distributary bay, overbank 10,000 Facies Group 3: Outer Stream Mouth Bar and Proximal Delta Front 1,000 Ambient Core k max (md) Overburden-Corrected Core Porosity Outer Stream Mouth Bar Proximal Delta Front Exponential (k max ) Figure 2-16: Log Permeability versus Overburden-Corrected Porosity for Facies Group 3 Where there was no direct core information, these transforms were applied to the previously discussed log-calculated porosity values, based on the interpreted environment of deposition model developed for each well. This allowed corresponding permeability values to be generated Permeability Overburden Correction As with porosity measurements, most permeability measurements from core were taken at ambient surface conditions and corrected for overburden pressure. The correction factor was obtained by taking samples from the core and measuring permeability at both the ambient and the overburden pressure conditions in the reservoir. Correcting permeability was more complex than correcting porosity, because it required two relationships, one linear and one nonlinear, depending on the initial ambient permeability value. These relationships are outlined as follows: 2-24 Imperial Oil Resources Limited August 2004

11 If permeability is 2 md: k ob = k amb 0.66 If permeability is < 2 md: k ob = k amb (k amb ) where: k ob = overburden permeability at 34 MPa (5,000 psi) k amb = ambient permeability At Taglu, these relationships were used to reduce the calibrated permeability values to reservoir conditions (see Figure 2-17). 1, Overburden Permeability k ob = 0.66 k amb k ob = k amb (k amb ) ,000 Ambient Permeability Figure 2-17: Taglu Overburden Permeability versus Ambient Permeability FLUID SATURATION ANALYSIS SCAL Capillary Pressures An important type of SCAL data obtained at Taglu was capillary pressure data. Capillary pressure is the pressure difference across an interface between immiscible fluids, such as water and gas. It is a function of interfacial fluid tension, pore surface wettability and effective pore geometry. The pore space of reservoir rocks within a petroleum reservoir commonly contains two fluid types: August 2004 Imperial Oil Resources Limited 2-25

12 SCAL Capillary Pressures (cont d) water, which is always present trapped hydrocarbons The equilibrium relationship between capillary pressure and buoyancy controls the relative proportions, or saturation, of the water and hydrocarbon within the rock pore space. With increasing height above the free water level, the hydrocarbon saturation generally increases and the water saturation decreases until a minimum level of background water saturation (S w(irr) ) is reached. Different rock types, with different pore geometry, will have different capillary pressure curves and thus, different saturation levels at the same elevation. SCAL measurements of capillary pressure from core samples allow these different saturation versus height functions to be defined for the various rock types within a reservoir. This information, combined with other reservoir parameters, can be used to calculate the total hydrocarbon resource contained within a reservoir Taglu Fluid Saturation Determination Fluid type and saturation values at Taglu were determined using induction logs and capillary pressure measurements that were calibrated to recovered reservoir fluids from tests. Water saturation (S w ) was determined using the resistivity data (dual water method) and capillary pressure data. At Taglu, many individual gas reservoir sands range from 1 to 3 m thick. This presents a problem for induction log data, as it underestimates resistivities from beds less than several metres thick. This problem leads to overprediction of water saturation values in these sands. Taglu has many high-quality capillary pressure measurements obtained from core samples across the full range of reservoir permeability values. Analyses of these measurements allowed the development of a single relationship to determine S w as a function of porosity, permeability and the height above the reservoir free water level. Figure 2-18 shows the relationship for various permeability values. Comparisons of the relationship with water saturation values calculated from induction log analyses from reliable bed thickness measurements indicated good agreement. Consequently, a capillary-pressure-based water saturation model was adopted for Taglu Imperial Oil Resources Limited August 2004

15 Section 2.4 GEOLOGY, GEOPHYSICS AND APPLICATION FOR APPROVAL OF THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR TAGLU FIELD PROJECT DESCRIPTION RESERVOIR PARAMETERS AND VOLUMETRICS INTEGRATED GEOLOGICAL MODEL Structural and petrophysical interpretations of the Taglu field were integrated into a geological model built using PETREL modelling software. The model is a synthesis of all the interpreted field information. The area of the model is 97 km 2, encompassing the main fault block between the north and south-bounding faults, as mapped on the Taglu 3-D survey. As the field closure area is about 30 km 2, this model extends well into the reservoir aquifer regions. The model consists of 6 million active or populated cells. Each cell is about 100 by 100 m in area by 1 m thick. The gross rock volume framework of the model was constructed using depth converted maps of the key seismic horizons discussed in Section 2.2, Geophysical Analysis. Within this gross rock volume framework, model cells were populated with an appropriate geological facies type based on the stratigraphic interpretations outlined in Section 2.1, Geological Description. Reservoir parameters were assigned to each cell based on the facies keyed relationships outlined in, Petrophysical Analysis. Using the saturation-height method outlined in, a unique water saturation value was calculated for each cell based on its porosity, permeability and height above the most likely free-water level AVERAGE RESERVOIR PARAMETERS Table 2-6 summarizes the average in-situ field parameters extracted from the geological model by reservoir system. The somewhat coarser grained and shallower A sands have average porosities of about 17% and permeabilities of about 150 md. The finer grained and deeper B and C sands have average porosities of about 14 % and permeabilities of about 25 md RESERVOIR VOLUMETRICS The most likely original raw gas-in-place volumes for the Taglu field have been extracted from the completed geological model and are summarized by reservoir system in Table 2-7.
