North Park Basin

North Park Basin – Colorado

The North Park Basin is a high, sparsely populated basin (approximately 8,800 feet in elevation) in the Rocky Mountains in north central Colorado. Crude oil has been produced from the anticlinal traps of the Muddy Sandstone at the North McCallum and South McCallum oil fields.

Bonanza Creek currently holds the second largest acreage position in the North Park Basin, with the Niobrara formation identified across its position. The Niobrara is approximately 600 feet thick at an estimated depth of 7,500 feet.

We are currently evaluating this area for future horizontal Niobrara development.
