There is a "play" currently going on in the Niobrara Formation of eastern Colorado. Traditionally, most wells were drilled in the old Julesburg Basin that encompasses a good chunk of northeastern Colorado. I am hearing of oil companies now actively acquiring leases as far south as the Black Forest east of Colorado Springs. There is some increased drilling activity going on, especially out east of Greeley (I know people working on rigs out there), but, so far, I don't think there is much actual drilling activity going on around Black Forest or farther south. Definitely interest in getting stuff "leased up" out there, though.

Ultra Petroleum, out of TX, recently bought 22,000 acres of the old Banning-Lewis Ranch out east of COLO SPGS and will drill 3 test wells this Spring.

Here's the generic thread for discussing BLR as a housing development, separate from the oil/gas fracking issue.

Here's the generic thread for fracking in Colorado.

Here's the thread for oil/gas drilling in the Front Range area.

Here's the tortured history of BLR.

Here's a large detailed map of the area, it's a very large area.
