Title: Stratigraphic Relations of Lyons Sandstone in Denver Basin: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Bruce F. Curtis

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Newest of the producing formations in the Denver basin is the Lyons sandstone, a reservoir probably Permian in age.

Lyons production was first established in 1953 at Keota field and an apparently much larger pool has since been proved at Black Hollow. The Lyons sandstone is limited westward by outcrops along the Colorado Front Range, and in other directions by changes of facies. Through the central, deeper part of the Denver basin much additional exploration of this new pay sand is anticipated.
