Welcome to the Niobrara News. This Blog is dedicated to dissemination of news, and events related to the Niobrara Shale Play in the Denver – Julesburg Basin of Southern Wyoming and Colorado. This oil play is at the time of this posting still a stealth play. Only a couple of discovery wells have been drilled, however a mad land rush is on for mineral rights. This blog is a place to find answers to questions, ask questions, and track the development of this play. Shale Oil plays are the next big energy frontier in the USA.
