LAS digital data files for the U.S.Geological Survey Alcova AR-1-13 core hole, Natrona County, Wyoming

December 19, 2019

In 2013 the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) drilled and logged a continuous core located on the northeast flank of the Alcova anticline in the southeastern part of the Wind River Basin, Wyoming to evaluate the source rock potential of the Lower and lowermost Upper Cretaceous marine shales (fig. 1). The well, named the Alcova Reservoir AR-1-13, was spud in the lower part of the Frontier Formation and ended in the upper part of the Cloverly Formation, and recovered core between 40.5 feet (ft) and 623 ft (figs. 1, 2). After coring was completed the USGS recorded geophysical data from the well bore, with digital data collected to a depth of 622 ft. Data include natural gamma, resistivity, conductivity, density, sonic, and caliper. The digital data is presented here in LAS (Log ASCII Standard) format.
