Devonian-Early Mississippian Carbonates of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin - A sequence stratigraphic framework

SEPM Short Course 28

Jack Wendt, Frank Stoakes, Clarence Campbell

Publication date: 1992
Series: Short Course

The Devonian and early Mississippian strata in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin include a wide diversity of shallow-water carbonate and basin filling carbonate, shale and evaporite facies. Of these, the large Devonian platform-reef complexes are the most spectacular.

Title information

The Devonian and early Mississippian strata in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin include a wide diversity of shallow-water carbonate and basin filling carbonate, shale and evaporite facies. Of these, the large Devonian platform-reef complexes are the most spectacular. They occur in magnificent exposures in the Front Ranges of the Canadian Rockies and in the subsurface of Alberta. In the subsurface, these complexes pool many of the largest oil and gas accumulations in Western Canada. This short course is intended to provide a summary of Devonian and early Mississippian deposits in the subsurface of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. One of the major goals is to present the evolution of these strata in a sequence-stratigraphic context. The role of sea-level, tectonic and depositional controls on "stacking" and facies patterns are considered. A second major goal is to relate the occurrence of hydrocarbon pools to this sequence-stratigraphic framework.
