Penrose Well Temperatures


Penrose Well Temperatures

Geothermal waters have been encountered in several wells near Penrose in Fremont County, Colorado. Most of the wells were drilled for oil and gas exploration and, in a few cases, production.

This ESRI point shapefile utilizes data from 95 wells in and around the Penrose area provided by the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) database at . Temperature data from the database were used to calculate a temperature gradient for each well. This information was then used to estimate temperatures at various depths.
