Sagebrush Associated with Lineaments Shows Influence of Hydrocarbon Microseepage in High Production Areas of the Altamont-Bluebell Oil Field
A significant portion of petroleum production in the Uinta Basin, Utah occurs from natural fracture systems in subsurface rock. The Uinta Basin of northeast Utah has long been recognized as one of the most petroliferous basins in the United States because of its oil shales, gilsonite dikes, tar sands and oil fields. Altamont-Bluebell oil field produces oil from a highly overpressured series of naturally fractured, low-porosity, Tertiary lacustrine and fluvial sandstones. This study investigated the associations among the oil producing fracture systems, lineaments obtained from satellite images, biogeochemical and spectral reflectance data obtained from sagebrush to identify petroleum microseepage, and subsequently to assess the potential of these associations as a tool for hydrocarbon exploration in the Altamont-Bluebell oil field, Utah.
