Arizona: Holbrook basin wildcat permitted

By OGJ editors

Triomphe Energy LLC, St. George, Utah, has staked a wildcat in eastern Arizona’s Holbrook basin.

The well, in 27-20n-21e, Navajo County, 15 miles north of Holbrook, is permitted to 3,000 ft. The site is just south of two wells drilled in the early 1960s and is understood to be primarily an oil and gas test.

Earlier wells nearby have had oil and gas shows in the Fort Apache member of Permian Supai, and the location is 25 miles west of the state’s helium fields that produced from the Permian Coconino sandstone (OGJ, May 5, 1997, p. 127). Helium, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and other gases have been found in the basin.
