Putnam and Ward (2001) present a detailed geological and sedimentological study of two Mesozoic siliciclastic units and one Paleozoic carbonate unit, unconnected, in the west-central part of the Alberta basin adjacent to the thrust and fold belt of the Rocky Mountains. They provide pressure data and interpretation for reservoirs in these units to illustrate the relation between reservoir architecture and the pressure regime in these reservoirs. In this respect, we suggest that their main contribution is to show that permeability barriers have affected and control the distribution of fluids and pressures in the respective units and that, indeed, understanding reservoir...
