Duvernay Shale

Location  Alberta, Canada (in the Kaybob area ) which extends into British Columbia.
Thickness  820 ft
Formation Details  The Duvernay Formation is a stratigraphical unit of Frasnian age in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. The Duvernay Formation is present in the sub-surface in central Alberta. The Devonian Duvernay Shale is an oil and natural gas field. The Duvernay Shale, which can be found just north of the Montney Shale, is quickly becoming one of the hottest oil discoveries in Canada due to some of the best drilling results in the area. As oil prices rise and drilling technologies improve, oil & gas fields such as the Duvernay Shale are getting a second look.

Companies such as Encana, Trilogy Energy, Chevron, and several other companies are exploring the Duvernay Formation.
