Summary

The Lowermost Cretaceous within the Liard Basin of northeastern British Columbia has been the target of recent exploration activities. The Lower Cretaceous play has centered around the Maxhamish Lake area, where recoverable reserves are estimated at 400 Bcf. Core and outcrop descriptions have helped determine depositional environments for both the Chinkeh and lowermost member of the Scatter Formation, the Bulwell Member. Sedimentology, Ichnology and stratigraphic analysis has been used to reconstruct depositional environments, predict reservoir distributions, and determine stratigraphic relationships for the Lowermost Cretaceous of the Liard Basin. At Maxhamish Lake, the reservoir consists of amalgamated storm deposits redistributed [...]
