..., predominantly shallow-water carbonates of the Cooking Lake Formation of Late Devonian age provided a platform on which isolated Leduc reefs grew in east-central Alberta. This study centres on the investigation of these platformal carbonates in the vicinity of the Redwater reef complex, a large isolated...

...R. O. Grieve ABSTRACT The Redwater oil field discovered in 1948 has inplace reserves of 1,300 million bbl, about 64 percent of which will be recovered. The field is a single pool 58 sq mi in area along the updip edge of a large Late Devonian (Frasnian) limestone reef complex. The complex is more...

... Abstract A 1950s radiometric survey of the giant Redwater oil field in Alberta, Canada, showed that such surveys, if properly conducted, yielded anomaly maps that correlated well with the Redwater’s underlying hydrocarbon reservoirs. Gamma-ray spectrometry (GRS) provides a nondestructive method...

This gave a detailed picture of reef zonation, from which the mechanics of reef growth could be interpreted. Analysis of the reservoir properties within these facies showed only four reservoir facies...

... of central Alberta: Leduc, Stettler, and Redwater ( Fig. 1 ). In the Leduc and Stettler areas the Leduc reef formation is completely dolomitized and the original lithologic texture and organic structures are largely destroyed or obscured by recrystallization. Thus, the various lithofacies and biofacies...

...W. P. Hancock; H. G. Gammell ABSTRACT Discovery of the Redwater oil field in September, 1948, marked the second major Devonian reef field found in Alberta. The discovery well was located on the basis of detailed seismic work and came into production 19 months after discovery of the Leduc field...
