4th Formation Evaluation
Symposium of the Canadian Well Logging Society in Calgary, May 9-10,



In Attachie 7-20-84-22-(W6), a "deep" wildcat drilled by Home Oil Company in Northeastern British Columbia, two gas reservoirs of commercial value were discovered, both of which provide unusually good examples of how careful one has to be in wild- cat evaluation, and how easy it can be to miss something.
