Interests in Every Major Play

With participation in projects throughout most of the major shale plays within the lower 48 states, Caliber Resource Partners holds interest in 6,000 wells – and counting.

Caliber Resource Partners Areas of Focus Map

Williston Basin

Deep below Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota lies the Williston Basin. Gas was first discovered here in 1913, with oil first gushing forth in 1936. After the Nesson Anticline was discovered in 1951, the 1950s saw a large boom, followed by new horizons opened by horizontal drilling in the Bakken formation in the early 2000s.

Powder River Basin

Originally known primarily for its coal resources, the Powder River Basin in Southeast Montana and Northeast Wyoming has recently become a major producer of both natural gas and coal-bed methane thanks to the introduction of horizontal drilling.

Denver-Julesburg Basin

The Denver-Julesburg Basin lies not only under the Denver metro area just east of the Rockies, but extends all the way into Wyoming, Nebraska and Kansas. Since 1901, it has been home to the Pierre Shale and Wattenberg Gas Field – one of the nation’s largest natural gas deposits. More than four trillion cubic feet of natural gas have been extracted from J Sandstone, Codell Sandstone, the Niobrara Formation, Hygiene Sandstone and Terry Sandstone.

Anadarko Basin

Stretching from Oklahoma through the Texas panhandle and even reaching into Kansas and Colorado, the Anadarko Basin remains the largest producer of natural gas in the United States, and includes the Hugoton-Panhandle Gas Field, West Edmond Field, Union City Field and Elk City Field.

Arkoma Basin

A peripheral foreland basin, the Arkoma Basin lies beneath southeastern Oklahoma into central northern Arkansas. Though coal was the first resource commercially extracted from Arkoma, it is now Oklahoma’s fourth largest natural gas producer.

Permian Basin

The largest petroleum-producing basin in the nation is the sedimentary Permian Basin. Supplying more than 28.9 billion barrels of oil and 75 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, this basin occupies a large portion of West Texas and eastern New Mexico and includes the Mid-Continent Oil Field, Delaware Basin, Midland Basin, Central Basin Platform, Eastern and Northwest Shelves, San Simon Channel, Sheffield Channel and Hovey Channel.

Eagle Ford Shale

The Eagle Ford is a sedimentary rock formation in southern TX, and a somewhat newer discovery, producing its first unconventional gas well in 2008.

Haynesville Shale

Stretching 9,000 square miles from Texas into Southern Arkansas and Northwest Louisiana, the Haynesville Shale holds natural and shale gas, and is second in production only to the Marcellus Formation in the Appalachian basin.

Appalachian Basin

The most extensive basin in the country, the Appalachian Basin lies beneath ten states, from Georgia and Alabama in the south all the way up to Lake Erie, Lake Ontario and New York. Home to coal mining for more than three centuries and oil production since the mid 1800s, the Appalachian Basin also encompasses numerous formations, including massive producers like Marcellus and Utica Shale.

Uinta Basin

Located in northeastern Utah and separated from the Piceance Basin by the Douglas Creek Arch, the Uinta Basin has been known as a site rich in natural gas, coalbed methane and oil since its first discovery in 1948.
