|Pembina oil field|
|Start of production||1953|
|Producing formations||Cardium Formation, Viking Formation, Rock Creek Member|
The mature field is centered on Drayton Valley and is named for the Pembina River, which crosses the region from southwest to northeast. It taps reservoirs in the Cretaceous formations of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin for oil and gas production. The main hydrocarbon-bearing unit is the Cardium Formation. Production also comes from the Viking Formation and sandstone beds of the Fernie Formation such as the Rock Creek Member.
