...Robert E. McDonald ABSTRACT The Big Piney-La Barge complex has been the major gas producing area in Wyoming since 1957, and during the past 10 years it also has become a leading oil producing area. Recoverable natural gas is estimated at 3 Tcf and recoverable oil exceeds 100 million bbl. The area...

... seismic survey used in this study was completed in Big Piney-LaBarge field, near Big Piney, Wyoming. Faults in Big Piney field lie in the footwall of the main Hogsback thrust (Figures  1 and 2 ). Emplacement of the Hogsback thrust has been inferred to be synchronous with formation of the Gros Ventre...

... Paleozoic rocks over the early Eocene Wasatch conglomerates. Such faults are not major flank structures but are the result of final lateral push toward the basin following the main period of uplift. Perhaps the motivation for some of these thrusts was gravity. In the case of the Piney Creek thrust, it does...

... .—The Bannock, Absaroka, Darby, and associated thrust faults constitute a zone of imbricated structure associated with many folds which are essentially parallel to the faults. One of these folds, the Big Piney-La Barge anticline, is of interest because of the discovery of small quantities of oil on it in four...
