JR Energy’s vice president of geoscience, Jack Rosenthal, said that working in the San Juan Basin “can be a blessing or a curse, depending on your perspective, because historically 99% of the assets in the basin are held by production because it necessitates acquisition by other operators such as our company.”

DJR has several years of experience in the Denver-Julesberg (D-J) Basin and decided to expand its area by using the knowledge it gained to grow into another area. “We see geologic similarities between the Codell in the D-J and the Powder River Basin in the San Juan Basin with a Cretaceous sand package, the Gallup Sands,” Rosenthal said while speaking at Hart Energy’s recently held DUG Rockies conference and exhibition.
