Title: 1953 Wyoming Highlights: ABSTRACT

Author(s): H. E. Summerford

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Exploration drilling in Wyoming in 1953 has shown a moderate increase over 1952. Drilling activity, both exploratory and development, has largely been concentrated in the Powder River and Big Horn basins. The hub of activity has been in the Powder River basin, resulting from the basinward extension of Newcastle sandstone stratigraphic trap. Isolated discoveries in the Wind River, Laramie-Hanna, and Green River basins have been very encouraging; therefore, exploratory drilling in Wyoming in 1954 should be broader in scope and continue at an accelerated pace.
