Two parasequence intervals in the Cretaceous Ferron Sandstone Member of the Mancos Shale exhibit contrasting facies and permeability relationships that can be used as models for reservoir characterization. Stratigraphic sections, permeability transects, photomosaic panels, and drill-hole core data are combined to establish relationships between sedimentary features and permeability, and to create a three-dimensional (3-D) framework. The fluvial-dominated bedset of one parasequence locally exhibits seaward-dipping clinoform geometries. In contrast, the wave-modified parasequence set contains tabular facies that range from foreshore to prodelta environments. A comparison of these two depositional types shows the fluvial-dominated deposits contains: (1) higher percent shale, (2)...
