This digital dataset contains geochemical analyses results for 248 brine samples collected from producing oil and gas wells in Alberta in 2021 and 2022 as part of the Alberta Energy Regulator's Mineral Mapping Program. The geological units these wells were producing from include the Keg River Formation, Swan Hills Formation, Beaverhill Lake Group, Leduc Formation, Nisku Formation, Montney Formation, Ellerslie Formation, and others.
The samples underwent routine water analysis, and were analyzed further for trace elements and metals, and strontium, lithium, oxygen, and hydrogen isotopes. Some samples were also analyzed for boron, sulphur, carbon, and chlorine isotopes. The analyses of sulphur, carbon, and chlorine isotopes, and some of the boron isotope analyses, were carried out as part of the Alberta Energy Regulator's Geothermal Mapping Project and included here for completeness.
