Colorado: Drilling resumes at Piceance Kokopelli field

Drilling resumed late last week in Kokopelli gas field in the Piceance basin with spudding of the Federal 6-7-15-27 directional well in Garfield County, Colo., said Dejour Energy Inc., Denver.

The well is the first of three to be drilled back to back. Drilling and setting of surface casing will continue next week for each of Federal 6-7-14-27 and Federal 6-7-13-27, prior to drilling out of surface casing, logging and casing of each well to a total depth of about 8,300 ft.

The target zone encompasses multiple horizons in the liquids-rich Williams Fork formation member of Cretaceous MesaVerde.

Dejour operates this Kokopelli project with a 100% working interest in the three wells, subject to a previously announced agreement with a Denver drilling fund.
