The key causes of heterogeneity within progradational shallow-marine reservoirs have been defined as: shoreline type (wave vs. fluvial dominated); shoreline trajectory; the presence of permeability contrasts associated with dipping clinoform surfaces within the shoreface or delta front; the presence of cemented barriers between parasequences; and the progradation direction of the shoreline (described with respect to the main waterflood direction in the simulated reservoir). These parameters
