The objective of this project is to develop a comprehensive, interdisciplinary, and
quantitative characterization of a fluvial-deltaic reservoir which will allow realistic inter-well and
reservoir-scale modeling to be constructed for improved oil-field development in similar
reservoirs world-wide. The geological and petrophysical properties of the Cretaceous Ferron
Sandstone in east-central Utah will be quantitatively determined. Both new and existing data will
be integrated into a three-dimensional representation of spatial variations in porosity, storativity,
and tensorial rock permeability at a scale appropriate for inter-well to regional-scale reservoir
simulation. Results could improve reservoir management through proper infill and extension
drilling strategies, reduction of economic risks, increased recovery from existing oil fields, and
more reliable reserve calculations. Transfer of the project results to the petroleum industry is an
integral component of the project.
