Chapter 15 Table Gas Production from the Permian

View Table 15.13b as an image.

Gas production from the Permian is primarily derived from the Belloy Formation in the Peace River Block area of northeast B.C., as well as from scattered Belloy fields us west-central Alberta.

There are seven Permian gas fields with Initial Established Marketable Gas Reserves of over 1000x l06m3(35 BCF). These seven largest Permian gas fields, listed in order of Initial Established Marketable gas reserves, are shown in Table 1. Cumulative production data for Alberta and British Columbia arc updated to the end of 1990.

Table 1. Seven Largest Permian Gas Fields (in units of lO6m3).

The first four of these Permian gas fields occur in structural-stratigraphic traps in the Peace River Block of northeast B.C. and the last three in west-central Alberta.

 

Total recoverable gas reserves in the Permian are estimated at 73.0 x 109m3, of which 20.2 x 109m3 have already been produced. Initial Established In-Place Volume of Permian gas reserves totals 95.2 x 109m3. There are a total of 218 Permian gas pools, With an average 334 x 106m3 recoverable gas reserves/pool. Table 2 lists the distribution of Permian gas reserves according to In-Place Pool Size.
