Targeted Energy Resource Studies in the Bowser and Sustut Interior Basins of BC

Lead Researcher(s):  C. A. Evenchick

Project ID:  2005-036

Key Research Organization(s):  Natural Resources Canada

Project Location:  Skeena

Strategic Focus Area:  Energy-Resources


The Bowser and Sustut basins are Interior Basins of Jurassic and Cretaceous age in north-central British Columbia. They have been under-explored in terms of hydrocarbon resources because of widespread misperceptions of their prospectivity, largely due to the reconnaissance nature of all geoscience work there until recently. This project is focussed on specific, detailed, energy resource studies which will complement an existing regional GSC project titled "Integrated Petroleum Resource Potential and Geoscience Studies of the Bowser and Sustut Basins".
