Journal Article: A Statistical Analysis Of Bottom-Hole Temperature Data In The Hinton Area Of West-Central Alberta

Abstract
Considerable differences in the spread of bottom-hole temperature values from petroleum exploration well logs plotted as a function of depth are observed over a region of west-central Alberta. The spatial variation of the spread is investigated, and it is found to be greater toward the Rocky Mountain disturbed belt in the west. The spatial variation there does not seem to correspond directly to local topography, and may be partly due to faults or fractures and related water movement or other causes. It also seems to coincide with the geothermal gradient anomaly reported by Lam et al. (1982). The variation of the spread is considered in terms of the extent to which subsurface isothermal surfaces follow variations in local topography.
