Hannes E. Leetaru Illinois State Geological Survey Champaign, Ill. Three-dimensional modeling can be used to enhance the understanding of depositional history and lateral and vertical heterogeneity of reservoirs. As part of its reservoir characterization program, the Illinois State Geological Survey generated a 3D model of the facies distribution at King field. King field, 75 miles east-southeast of St. Louis in southeastern Jefferson County, Ill., extends over 1,700 acres and has 108 wells
