Colorado: Dejour gets Gibson Gulch drilling OK

By OGJ editors

Dejour Energy Inc., Vancouver, BC, received US Bureau of Land Management approval to begin development at its Gibson Gulch gas-condensate project in the Piceance basin near Glenwood Springs, Colo.

The permits allow construction of access roads and a pad and the drilling of the first four of eight proposed first-phase wells. Brownstone Energy Inc., Toronto, has a 28% interest in the federal leases.

The main producing formations in the Mamm Creek field eastern extension area are the Cretaceous Williams Fork and the Illes members of the Mesaverde formation at 4,500-8,100 ft.
