Grand Rapids Formation

Location  Northeastern Alberta, Canada
Thickness  410 ft
Formation Details  Grand Rapids formation, located above the
Wabiskaw formation at depths of between 220 and 270 metres. The Grand Rapids Formation comprises the upper part of the regressive Upper Manville Group and consists of multiple thick sandstones hosting 54.5 billion barrels (8678 x 106 m3) of bitumen in place. The Grand Rapids Formation consists of Lower Cretaceous (Albian) sands and shales that were deposited as a series of regional coarsening upward sequences (middle shoreface to near shore marine) with incised channels containing estuarine sediments.
Notes  The Grand Rapids zone is broadly divided into lower, middle and upper reservoir units capped by the Joli
Fou shales. The bitumen resource is contained in the 15 to 30m-thick uppermost sand unit at approximately
205m depth
