Wells in the Piceance Basin show anomalous large-magnitude (up to 200 millivolts), large-interval (greater than 2000 ft (610 m)) self-potential (SP) log responses in the Mesaverde gas producing interval that can be best explained by electrokinetic potential resulting from water flow towards producing Mesaverde wells.

Statistical classification methods consisting of the k-nearest neighbor algorithm (k-NN), a probabilistic clustering procedure (PCP), and a novel method which incorporates outcrop-based thickness criteria through the use of well-log-indicator flags are evaluated for their ability to distinguish fluvial architectural elements of the upper Mesaverde Group of the Piceance and Uinta basins as distinct electrofacies classes.

In 2010, in the town of Snowmass, Colo., while working on a reservoir, a bulldozer operator discovered uncovered fossil bones that turned out to belong to a young female mammoth. When all was said and done, more than 5,400 bones of mammoths, mastodons and other ice age animals were discovered at the site.

Even though oil prices are up from their January lows, many people are focused on the current economic hardships, business bankruptcies and layoffs, and the question naturally arises – was the boom worth it?

You may not be aware that there was a super-Greenhouse environment during the Cretaceous, and that there were super-storms associated with it, and that analyzing the sediments deposited during that time can provide insight into the potential warming of climates, and also the cross-shelf transport of sediments. That is just one of many fascinating new areas of research that looks at data through new lenses, and with new analytical techniques. Welcome to an interview with Lesli J. Wood, Weimer Distinguished Chair and Professor in Sedimentary and Petroleum Geology, Colorado School of Mines.
