Description

The Uinta and Piceance Basins are Laramide structures separated by the Douglas Creek arch. The Basin is principally bounded by major faults, including the Charleston-Nebo thrust and the Uinta Basin boundary fault, or expressed at the surface by large monoclines such as the Grand Hogback

Summary

The Basin has been widely explored with a variety of play types. Asset turnover remains high as the development maturity risk is passed between companies. However, recent price headwinds are creating a feeling of uncertainty for the basin.
