Organic and inorganic geochemical characterization of the Juana Lopez and Montezuma Valley members of the lower Mancos Shale, Piceance Basin, Colorado
The Piceance Basin is a prolific sedimentary basin known for its immense accumulations of oil and natural gas from a number of producing intervals. Of these intervals, both the middle-to upper Turonian Juana Lopez and the overlying upper Turonian Montezuma Valley members (and their coeval equivalents) of the Mancos Shale are beginning to receive some attention with regards to their petroleum potential as possible targets for unconventional exploration and production. However, minimal research has been completed on the Montezuma Valley Member, in particular, of the lower Mancos Shale with regards ...
