The Canadian Rocky Mountains, straddling the Alberta/BC border in its southern reaches, extend from the US border northwesterly for about km to the low-lying Liard Plain in the Yukon. The Rockies consist largely of Paleozoic sedimentary rocks, a good proportion of which (> 50%) are : Charles J. Yonge, Derek Ford, Greg Horne, Bernard Lauriol, Jacques Schroeder. 7 The hydrocarbon reserves for the existing Moose Mountain Rundle A and B pools are 9, e6m3 ( Bcf) of gas in place (IGIP), of which 5, e6m3 ( Bcf) is sales (AEUB ). By the end of , 4, e6m3 ( Bcf) of raw gas was produced (Table No. 3 and Diagram No. 3). This is the same as the original marketable gas reserves published by the AEUB for theFile Size: KB.

The rocks in the Rocky Mountains were formed before the mountains were raised by tectonic forces. The oldest rock is Precambrian metamorphic rock that forms the core of the North American continent. There is also Precambrian sedimentary argillite, dating back to billion years the Paleozoic, western North America lay underneath a shallow sea, which deposited .

The Wasootch Creek area is representative of the Rocky Mountain Front Range of southern Alberta. It is underlain by rocks of the Middle Cambrian, Upper Devonian, Mississippian, Permain and Lower Triassic, of which carbonates constitute the largest part.

In the Rocky Mountain Foothills, major oil and gas accumulations occur in the folded and faulted leading edges. The two formations and eight members that constitute the Upper Cambrian in the Llano uplift of central Texas are described or redefined, and their lithic characters in 19 measured sections are graphically summarized.

Don L. Kissling. Abstract. Some time ago, while working on a problem that involved the question of the presence or absence of islands near the close of the Cretaceous period in the region now occupied by the southern part of the Rocky Mountains, I was forced to the conclusion that no land masses or islands of any considerable size persisted there throughout the Cretaceous period, for I found no sedimentary rocks that.1.
