Description:
The Pembina oil field is one of the largest and most prolific conventional oil fields in the province of Alberta, Canada.

The mature field is centered around Drayton Valley and is named for the Pembina River, which crosses the region from south-west to north-east.

It taps in the Cretaceous deposits of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin for oil and gas production. The main hydrocarbon bearing formations is the Cardium Formation, with the Viking Formation and sandstone beds of the Fernie Formation such as the Rock Creek Member also being produced.

History

The first oil was discovered by Mobil Oil in February 1953, and it started a boom that saw the investment of $900 million in the area.
