The Paleocene-age Wasatch and Fort Union Formations in the study area contain numerous coal seams that are interbedded with shale, sandstone, and conglomerates. Individual seam thickness ranges from 2 to 15ft (0.6-4.6m) and aggregate thickness ranges from 64 to 163ft (19.5-49.7m). The coals are of sub-bituminous to high-volatile C/B bituminous rank (Ro,ran=0.47 to 0.59%) and are found at depths from <2000 to 6000ft (610-1579m). Gas content ranges from 115 to 263scf/t or 3.59-6.92cm3/g (ARB), which is higher than expected for the coal rank. The coals appear to be close to full saturation, based on a comparison of adsorption isotherms with desorption data. The coals pinch-out updip in the subsurface forming a stratigraphic trap, which may explain the high gas content and the mixed biogenic-thermogenic origin supported by isotopic analysis. Gas composition is 97% methane with 3% inerts, and the gas has a heating value of 990BTU/ft3. The coals are relatively clean (average ash content is 15wt.%) and have fast diffusivity (63% of total gas desorbs in <16h). A valid pressure transient test in a coal seam at 3140ft (957m) depth showed permeability to be 14mD (un-stimulated). The coal reservoir was normally-pressured reservoir (0.44psi/ft or 9.7kPa/m) but was heavily damaged (skin of +23). Another coal seam located at 4100ft (1250m) had a modeled permeability of 2.6 to 4.6mD, which was estimated from long-term water production. Potential recoverable resource is thought to be 700BCF (billion cubic feet or almost 20 billion m3) with wells drilled on 80-acre spacing, which translates to a gross EUR of 1.4BCF per well for the 500 well locations identified in the developable acreage. Based on numerical simulation using the simplistic FeketeTM model, peak coal gas rate is expected to be 320MCF/D (9014m3 per day) after 36months, and production should remain at that level for 12months before declining at a rate of 10% per year. Conventional gas potential also exists in numerous intervals within the Upper Fort Union and Wasatch Formations sandstones at depths shallower than 2000ft (526m). Few wells drilled decades ago, having perforations in these sands, showed IP (initial production) rates ranging from 500MCF/D (14,084m3 per day) to 12MMCF/D (338,028m3 per day). A 24-inch (60cm) diameter pipeline that has an operating pressure of 800-1000psig, a tap, and a capacity of 275MMCF/D (7.74 million m3 per day) crosses the study area. The pipeline is connected to the Colorado Interstate Gas mainline, which provides gas to markets in the eastern United States. © 2012.

Oil hosted in a rock taken from a seep exposed by a road cut in north-central Peru was studied by geochemical means. The oil is classified as heavy paraffinic (waxy) by liquid chromatography. The oil appears to be highly mature, showing evidence of chemical and/or biological degradation. This is further supported by relatively high yields of polar fractions (resins and asphaltenes), partial depletion of n-alkanes below C16, and a relative enrichment of isoprenoid hydrocarbons. The n-alkane distribution obtained by whole-oil gas chromatography (GC) also points to mature, waxy oil. Pristane/phytane and isoprenoid ratios suggest that Type II kerogen deposited in low-oxygen (dystrophic) environment was likely the source of the oil. Biomarker fingerprints of the saturate fraction obtained by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and other characteristic ratios indicate the high level of thermal maturation of the oil and suggest that the oil was derived from a clay-rich source rock rich in bacterial-derived organic matter deposited in suboxic conditions. Aromatic biomarker data confirm the high level of thermal maturity of the oil and point to a mixed shale/carbonate source rock deposited in a sulfate-poor marine environment. The parent oil most likely has a pre-Cretaceous source due to the absence of 18 α (H) oleanane and the fact that the C28 αββ/C29 αββ steranes and the C28 αββ/C29 αββ sterane vs. C27 αββ/C29 αββ sterane ratios are both comparable to values reported for oils derived from the Jurassic Pucara Formation source rock in the nearby Marañon Basin. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
