E.P. Monahan, M.D.: There is potential in Vermillion Basin

Dear Editor:

Regarding the letter of July 20, 2007, by Rich Hammel concerning the Vermillion Basin, he says “it is unknown what the potential is within the basin, as no exploration has occurred.”

Gas was first discovered in the basin in 1927. This was followed by a series of gas discoveries. Oil was found in 1935. The present Hiawatha Field containing at least a dozen wells is in the center of the basin.

The basin is divided about equally between Moffat County and Sweetwater County, Wyo.

E.P. Monahan, M.D.
