Niobrara Shale
United States


Location  the Denver–Julesburg basin
Formation Details  The Niobrara Shale is a shale rock formation located in Northeast Colorado, Northwest Kansas, Southwest Nebraska, and Southeast Wyoming. Oil and Natural Gas can be found deep below the earth's surface at depths of 3,000 - 14,000 feet.
Notes  The Niobrara Formation , also called the Niobrara Chalk, is a geologic formation in North America that was laid down between 87 and 82 million years ago during the Coniacian, Santonian, and Campanian ages of the Late Cretaceous. It is composed of two structural units, the Smoky Hill Chalk Member overlying the Fort Hays Limestone Member. Samson Oil & Gas is one of the earliest companies to establish a position in the Niobrara, which some call the “NeoBakken.”
