CBM Potential of the Alberta Plains - Depth to Top of the McKay Coal Zone (GIS dataset)

Author(s) Berhane, H. Date 2009-07-21

Alberta Geological Survey created a coal and coalbed methane (CBM) database to capture and manage CBM data. The database compiles different sources and contains information on 7923 wells (15,200 formation picks, 37,357 coal picks, 495 coal analyses and 363 vitrinite reflectance measurements). From this parent dataset, individual coal zone was evaluated. This record describes the McKay Coal Zone depth to top.
