The distribution and abundance of these biogenic structures present strong evidence that.

The Athabasca oil sands, also known as the Athabasca tar sands, are large deposits of bitumen or extremely heavy crude oil, located in northeastern Alberta, Canada – roughly centred on the boomtown of Fort oil sands, hosted primarily in the McMurray Formation, consist of a mixture of crude bitumen (a semi-solid rock-like form of crude oil), silica sand, clay minerals, and nates: 57°01′N °39′W / °N.

Introduction The Athabasca oil sands are the second largest producer of crude oil in the world, with a surface area of approximately square kilometres (Anderson, Giesy & Wiseman, ). The Alberta Energy and Utilities Board estimates that the oil sands contains approximately trillion.

Oil sands are the most important of the oil and gas resources in Canada. So the distribution and evaluation of oil sands form a critical basis for risk investment in Canada. Distribution of oil sands resources is severely controlled by the reservoir heterogeneity.

Deterministic modeling is commonly used to solve the heterogeneity problems in the reservoir, but rarely used to evaluate Cited by: 2. The fourth largest deposit, the Wabasca oil sands, lies underneath the Athabasca oil sands, so the two are often referred to as one (the Athabasca-Wabasca oil sands) since they occupy the same surface area, although they are geologically separate and distinct.

In-situ oil sands wells in the area may have dual completions, one in the Athabasca. The Status of Biodiversity in the Athabasca Oil Sands Area SUPPLEMENTARY REPORT 2 Introduction The report The Status of Biodiversity in the Athabasca Oil Sands Area provides a high-level overview of biodiversity, human footprint, and habitat in the Athabasca Oil Sands Area (AOSA).

Most of the bitumen in the Athabasca deposit is hosted within fluvial, estuarine, and marginal marine deposits of the Lower Cretaceous Wabiskaw-McMurray succession.
