Rather, permitted production rates must have regard for the MERS at which various reservoirs can be produced to avoid underground waste. Different pools might require different rates of production. 17 Related to the principle of waste reduction is the problem of stripper or marginal wells. These are wells capable of only lowvolume production, in many cases defined as less than 10 barrels a day, and are typically approaching the end of their life cycles. Such wells are usually exempted from production restrictions on the grounds of preventing physical waste, that is, leading to premature abandonment and the loss of recoverable oil underground.
Remaining variables that define the quality of a reservoir are the depth or thickness of the petroleum-bearing formation and its areal extent. So far, the largest single oilfield discovered in Alberta is the Pembina field, which contains the large Cardium pool, comprising an accumulation in Cretaceous sediments.
