Uinta Basin Play Overview

What is the Uinta Basin?

The Uinta Basin, located in northeastern Utah, has produced 577 MMbbls since its
discovery in 1949 and is characterized by naturally fractured, tight oil sands with multiple zones. Our
operations are primarily focused on developing the Altamont Field (including the Bluebell and Cedar
Rim fields), which is the largest field in the basin.

The Uintah Basin, also spelled Uinta Basin, is a physiographic section of the larger Colorado Plateaus province, which, in turn, is part of the larger Intermontane Plateaus physiographic division.[1] It is also a geologic structural basin in eastern Utah, east of the Wasatch Mountains and south of the Uinta Mountains. The Uintah Basin is fed by creeks and rivers flowing south from the Uinta Mountains.
