The Silo field area in 15n-16n/64w-65w, Laramie County, Wyo., serves as an excellent study area for Niobrara oil production in that it contains 47 vertical wells that have produced nearly exclusively from Niobrara (Fig. 7).
No other field in the Denver basin produced from such a large number of wells and only from the Niobrara. Statistically, Silo field is the best available analog for potential future Niobrara oil fields. Through June 1991, 10 horizontal wells have been drilled and completed in the Niobrara in the Silo field area (Fig. 9, 10A, 10B).
