Study of exisiting temperature data from Canadian basins, phase IV: M74-3/85-6E-PDF

"Over 8400 bottom-hole temperature (BHT) values from the Canadian part of the Williston Basin have been analysed and a temperature anomaly has been discovered in the Weyburn area of southeastern Saskatchewan. Regional heat flow variations are observed, and these are closely related to the hydrodynamics which is governed by the topography and geology. The blanketing effect of low conductivity shaly formations may cause a temperature anomaly in the south where the thickest Phanerozoic cover exists. However, the Weyburn anomaly can be only partly explained in this way. Hydrodynamics has also contributed to the formation of this temperature anomaly. Preliminary examination of data from the Northwest Territories has commenced"--Abstract.
