Shallow Natural Gas Prospects

Even though it’s a long way from a prospect to production, we have to start someplace. A lot of the literature on prospect risks is devoted to the geologic unknowns. But, even more significant risks are found in the emotion and psychology of putting together leases, marketing the prospect, coordinating the subcontractors, and getting gas into the pipeline. These risks are difficult to quantify and control. And, they make the geologic risks seem relatively manageable.

Three things tend to reduce the geologic risk in GeoShurr shallow gas prospects:
••Data sets are used that are not routinely employed in gas exploration. This includes water well records, satellite images, and surface mapping, along with more traditional data such as wireline logs, seismic data, and aeromagnetic maps.
••Exploration models are explicit for shallow gas systems and are clearly articulated. Prospects are based more on geologic science than on blind step-out drilling. We have put some geology behind those lease decisions.
••Unique professional experience with Cretaceous rocks and lineament block tectonics in the Northern Great Plains. In particular, work has focused on the Williston Basin.

The trailer-mounted drilling rig shown on this illustration is an early Montana-Dakota location in the Hinsdale Unit on Bowdoin Dome.

The prospects described on this website are all located on the margins of the Williston Basin:
1. Southwestern Margin--There is a lot of current activity here and the prospects are relatively close to production and pipelines.
2. Southeastern Margin--Historic production and some exploration make prospects here somewhat less risky. But, these prospects are wildcats.
3. Northeastern Margin--Paleozoic oil production is well established, but shallow gas potentials are relatively unassessed.
Prospects included on this website will change periodically. Please contact GeoShurr if you want to be put on the mailing list and/or for e-mail notification.
