CBM Northern WyomingOur current CBM properties are characterized by what we believe to be low geologic risk and repeatable development opportunity. Clabaugh Ranch is about 18 miles northwest of Gillette Wyoming and all of the wells drilled there have encountered developed coal seams in the Warner, Upper and Lower Smith, Wyodak/Anderson Lower, Gates and Wall formations.
The Clabaugh Ranch field has had 42 wells drilled through September 30, 2012 with a success rate of 100%. Our drilling inventory consists of 8 permitted well locations (6 net), all of which are CBM resource opportunities. Further development of Clabaugh Ranch is being evaluated.
