... of the naturally fractured Altamont oil field in Utah’s Uinta basin. Calculations suggest that fractures formed in extension, that the well-cemented rocks are those most likely to be fractured, that fractures began to develop only after strata were buried to great depth, and that the fracture system continued...

...J. D. Bredehoeft; J. B. Wesley; T. D. Fouch ABSTRACT The Altamont oil field in the deep Uinta basin is known to have reservoir fluid pressures that approach lithostatic. One explanation for this high pore-fluid pressure is the generation of oil from kerogen in the Green River oil shale at depth...

...Peter T. Lucas ABSTRACT Altamont field in the Uinta basin of Utah is a much-overpressured accumulation of high pour-point crude, producing from multiple, thin, Tertiary reservoirs in a 40-mi long stratigraphic trap. Postdepositional shift of the structural axis of the basin created an updip...

... are not the source of oil produced in the field. Hydrocarbons are compositionally similar to some of the oils produced from the Green River Formation in the Bluebell-Altamont field and are interpreted to have migrated from mature Green River source rocks through a network of open fractures. The occurrence of small...
