NONASSOCIATED GAS POTENTIAL OF SAN JUAN BASIN CONSIDERABLE
Dudley D. Rice Charles N. Threlkeld April K. Vuletich Mark J. Pawlewicz U.S. Geological Survey Lakewood, Colo. The San Juan basin is a major hydrocarbon producing province in the Rocky Mountains. Cumulative production for both the New Mexico and Colorado parts of the basin, as of Jan. 1, 1983, was: 190 million bbl of oil, 14 tcf of nonassociated gas, 425 bcf of associated gas, and 60 million bbl of condensate. Ultimate recovery of nonassociated gas was estimated to be 23 tcf.
