Mesaverde Gas Play - Eastern Uinta
The Mesaverde Group is quickly
becoming a major producer of gas in the Uinta basin,
Three subsurface cross sections, with formational contacts within the group, depositional facies, tested intervals with results, Ro values, are developed for this play. Cumulative production, IP, isopach of the Mesaverde Group, and structure on the Castlegate maps help evaluate this play. Because many Mesaverde completions are commingled with Wasatch zones, these wells have a percent net Mesaverde perforations indicator to help estimate the influence of the Mesaverde completion zones. Mesaverde completions by decade are mapped to visually tract where the play is headed and how it has developed historically. Funding by the Utah Geological Survey has supported this study.
