Montana: Anschutz to cease exploring Blackfeet acreage

Anschutz Exploration Corp., Denver, will cease operations and withdraw from the Blackfeet Reservation in northern Montana after failing to discover enough resources to support further exploration or development investment.

The company drilled 14 exploratory wells to varying depths on 600,000 acres that comprise the western third of the reservation in Glacier County and analyzed multiple hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs. It notified the Blackfeet Tribal Business Council of its decision.
