Skinner Lake: Ratcliffe

The Ratcliffe Beds of the Charles Formation are composed of dolomites and limestones interbedded with anhydrite, deposited in a variably restricted shallow shelf environment. Conventional  trapping can be due to lateral updip facies changes, structural features, or a combination of stratigraphic and structural elements.

Over the last few years, horizontal drilling in the Ratcliffe has increased.  Because most wells are completed open hole, the unit is contributing significantly to the panoply of stacked, mainly Paleozoic reservoirs in southeastern Saskatchewan.
