Wyoming: Warren to probe Niobrara at Atlantic Rim

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, June 8
– Warren Resources Inc., New York, will drill one exploratory well in 2011 for oil in Cretaceous Niobrara shale in the eastern Washakie basin of southwestern Wyoming.

Warren owns deep rights below its Atlantic Rim coalbed methane project that include an approximate 80,000 net acre position in southeastern Sweetwater County that is potentially prospective for the Niobrara shale.

Warren estimates that its Niobrara shale is at depths of 4,000 to 10,000 feet. As many as 200 horizontal Niobrara development well locations are approved under the 2007 Atlantic Rim federal environmental impact statement.
