Nature and Potential of Belly River Gas Sand Traps and Reservoirs: Abstract

James R. Shouldice1

Although oil production is limited to a relatively small area, gas production from sands of the Belly River Formation occurs throughout the southwestern half of Alberta and in southwestern Saskatchewan.

Within this large region there are many changing factors which affect the reservoir qualities in these sand traps. Serious producing problems are caused in part by a lack of study and understanding of these factors.

Several representative pools are compared. Reserves and recovery problems are discussed.
