... of relative sea-level rises, variable organic growth potential and changes in seafloor topography on patterns of carbonate sedimentation. By the end of Cooking Lake deposition, one of these paleotopographic highs, the Redwater Shoal, approximately 30 km across, bordered two connected, relatively deep-water...

.... In the Redwater area, a prominent shoal exhibited deposition of relatively uniform limestone types and organic content throughout, except at the eastern margin. In the lower and upper Cooking Lake relatively narrow algal-stromatoporoid biofacies belts are developed at 6 to 10 and 4 to 5 miles, respectively, east...

... in the Redwater to Beaverhill Lake, Smoky Lake, and Duvernay areas; during upper Cooking Lake deposition, shoals existed in the Redwater, Smoky Lake-Duvernay, and Ardrossan areas. Along the Leduc-Morinville reef trend, dolomitization has destroyed much of the original limestone character of the Cooking Lake...

.... The Redwater reef grew during a major subcycle within the Kaskaskian sequence. Transgression over shoal carbonate of the previous subcycle created a “reef-prone” shelf of moderate depth. The reef was enveloped by clayey and carbonate muds which prograded across the shelf. Nearly 3,000 million bbl...

... into a number of isolated shoals that formed a depositional high on which Leduc reef growth subsequently took place ( Wendte et al., 1992 ). This study involved creating a 2D geological model of the Redwater reef, from the reef center to off-reef and assessing the seismic response of the reef to increasing...

... matrix grains and form at greater distances from the effects of wave energy. Grainstone fabrics result from wave energies that either entrain bioclasts or cause a thorough flushing of mud from near-surface sediments. Progressively shoaling regressive conditions during upper Redwater Shale deposition...

... The Redwater reef complex is located just east of the Rimbey-Meadowbrook reef trend in the Eastern Shale Basin (Figure 1 ). The studied interval corresponds lithostrati-graphically to the Upper Devonian Woodbend megacycle ( Stoakes, 1992 ; Wendte, 1994 ). This succession is organized...

... and Creaney (1984, 1985) showed these laminites to be thermally immature and oil at Redwater to be sourced from a similar mature Duvernay facies to the southwest which had migrated updip through "leaky" Cooking Lake carrier beds into the Redwater reef complex. A number of upward-shoaling cycles were...

... and coral knoll reef belts deposited near moderately sloping bank edges. Bank interiors are commonly extensive and characterized by cyclic deposition of grainstone shoals and lagoonal and tidal flat sediments. Certain Givetian reefs found in evaporite basins usually occur as areally small, “pinnacle” reefs...

... progressively into a shallow-marine shoal phase (Division 2) with less extensive reef frameworks on the margin. In the upper Leduc (Divisions 3 and 4) a narrow discontinuous reef zone is on the margin with intertidal laminites and mudstones predominating in the interior. This sequence can be correlated...

... the reef-growing episode. Three phases of development of reef-growth are recognized: early, medial, and late phase. Increased subsidence in central and south-central Alberta occurred during the early phase of reef growth. Biohermal reef-growth commenced where organic shoals had become prolific near the end...

... by precipitation on a widespread bank. Calcarenites were concentrated along the western side of an interpreted shoal, the margin of which trended north to north-northeast approximately along the locus of later Leduc reef growth at Duhamel. The basal Duvernay calcilutite unit is less than 10 feet thick above...
