Kokopelli Field Development Project

Unique Williams Fork/Mancos Combination

Project Map

DXI Energy's  acreage is located adjacent to Barrett Resource lands  that have seen significant recent drilling success and is sandwiched between Williams’s acreage which has been equally prolific. The Company’s acreage is adjacent to William’s Kokopelli field and almost certainly represents an extension of that field. To the west and adjacent to DXI’s holdings is Barrett and William’s extension of the Mamm Creek field.


The main producing formations are the Cretaceous Williams Fork and the Illes Members of the Mesa Verde Formation. These are sediments once deposited in the lowlands next to, and lining, a shallow seaway that extended from the Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic Ocean. In the Gibson Gulch area these sediments are found at depths 4500 ft. to 8100 ft.Deeper producing formations are the fine grained sediment and shale of the Mancos Formation, including the Frontier Formation sands and sands and silts of the Niobrara Formation. These formations are fine grained and have been considered too tight to effectively be produced until the recent revolution in drilling and completion technologies.
