  Our calendar program is to complete the 3D Seismic and commence our vertical drilling program in Q3 to log, core and test the Lodgepole; Bakken and Three Forks formations prior to yearend.   In only 10 hours, the North Saskatchewan River rose three metres. The mountain waters came through in crushing waves, leaving 35 .   After British Columbia, Canada Montney and Horn River natural gas successes, the technology’s biggest Canadian achievement has been the Bakken tight oil play in southeastern Saskatchewan. From negligible production at mid-decade, Bakken output soared to a rec bbls a day early this year before slipping be bbls a day by mid.

The basin center area is a continuous unconventional accumulation in the Bakken and Three Forks formations. Another good example of an intracratonic carbonate basin is the Michigan Basin to the southeast of the Williston Basin (Cohee and Landes, ; Delwig and Evans, ; Mesolella et al., ). The Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) is a vast sedimentary basin underlying 1,, square kilometres (, sq mi) of Western Canada including southwestern Manitoba, southern Saskatchewan, Alberta, northeastern British Columbia and the southwest corner of the Northwest consists of a massive wedge of sedimentary rock .   Calgary: Detselig Enterprises Pp. illus. $3495 'Big West Country' is a name and description assigned by tourist and commercial promoters to a region along the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains. It is located in west-central Alberta between the major eastwest transportation routes through the Kicking Horse and Yellowhead passes.

  The Devonian Three Forks formation underlies the Late Devonian–Early Mississippian Bakken formation, which occurs in the Williston Basin of Montana and North Dakota (northern USA) and Saskatchewan (southern Canada). Although the Bakken is currently a major hydrocarbon resource, the Three Forks is also considered a Bakken source rock and a.

The overall accommodation space for the Bakken and Three Forks is low (Skinner et al., ). The accommodation space for the overlying Lodgepole is high (Skinner et al., ). This suggests glacial controls for the Bakken Three Forks sea level changes and perhaps tectonic controls on the Lodgepole (e.g., higher subsidence and depositional rates).

The Bakken Formation (/ ˈ b ɑː k ən /) is a rock unit from the Late Devonian to Early Mississippian age occupying aboutsquare miles (, km 2) of the subsurface of the Williston Basin, underlying parts of Montana, North Dakota, Saskatchewan and formation was initially described by geologist J.W.

Nordquist in The formation is entirely in the Overlies: Wabamun Formation, Big Valley. The purpose of this paper is to describe the Bakken facies and associated rock-types in west-central Saskatchewan (Figure 1) using evidence from the study of about 50 cores and associated well-log data, and to make a preliminary interpretation of the depositional history of the formation in the study area.

It is an oil producer in southwest Manitoba. and in southeast and west-central Saskatchewan. the area of this study (Figure 1). The Bakken Formation was informally subdivided by Nordquist (). into three : D. Kasper, H.

Is the oil field the next Bakken. Oil prospectors are hunting for North America’s next big shale play in a layer of rock dubbed the Torquay in Canada, also known at the Three Forks in the United. New technology and enhanced recoveries may add to the number in the future. Total Bakken and Three Forks production to December was billion bbl of oil and tcf of gas f wells.
