Reserves Data

ST98

Reserves data, including Shapefiles and GeoTIFFs, will be updated at a later date.

The report data sets are available to download in excel (xlsx) format using the download button. The report figures are available in Tableau format by clicking on the Figure numbers listed below. The report tables are available in HTML format by clicking on the Table numbers listed below.

AER staff developed the databases used to estimate the reserves for this report and the electronic data file for the basic data tables that accompanies this report are available for purchase in the Product Catalogue

Note: On crude bitumen reserves thickness maps: Bitumen thickness maps are also available in a shapefile and GeoTIFF format. Shapefiles are designed to be viewed using any geographic information system tool. GeoTIFFs contains geographic data that position the image in the correct location in the world, and can be viewed in any geographic information system software.

Tableau is an interactive data visualization tool that allows users to further filter and alter the visualization of the report figures.
