The unique Charlie Lake formation, found predominately in British Columbia, is a relatively understudied formation with significant hydrocarbon potential. Although several reservoir types exist within the Charlie Lake, the unique aeolian sand bodies make for a particularly interesting petroleum reservoir. The nature, distribution, and predominance of these likely petroleum bearing sands has yet to be fully explained and modeled. For my thesis I will focus on outlining the stratigraphy and sedimentology of the Charlie Lake, including a detailed facies analysis of the formation in both outcrop and core. Finally I will explore the petroleum implications of my findings.
