The Denver Basin, sometimes also called the Julesburg Basin, or Denver-Julesburg Basin (after Julesburg, Colorado), or the D-J Basin, is a geologic structural basin centered in eastern Colorado and extending into southeast Wyoming, western Nebraska, and western Kansas.
The primary oil and gas play in the DJ Basin is The Wattenberg Field, which is one of the largest oil and natural gas deposits in the United States, located just north of the Denver metropolitan area. The field has produced more than 4.0 trillion cubic feet (TCF) of natural gas. In 2007, the field made 11 million barrels of oil and 170 billion cubic feet (BCF) of gas from more than 14,000 wells, making it the 9th largest source of natural gas in the United States.
Swan Energy is participating in over 100 wells in Colorado in 2014 and will operate its first Pad on the Swank acreage located just southeast of Hudson, Colorado. Swan Energy’s affiliates will control the workflow and will plan the drilling, completion, fracture treatments and every other aspect of getting the wells in production. This will provide Swan Energy’s joint venture partners with greatly increased access to data and will expedite the revenue process.
