well was plugged and abandoned in 1956. The
oil from the field was transported by truck.
The Bearcat unit, approved December 30,
1954, consisted of 12,608 acres.
The Beaver Creek field (fig. 13) is a gently
folded anticline in secs. 21, 28, and 34, T. 34 N.,
R. 96 W., and secs. 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 14, and 15, T.
33 N., R. 96 W., Fremont County. The field
is 20 miles east of Lander and 14 miles south-
east of Riverton. It lies between the Riverton
Dome and Big Sand Draw fields The east
side of the structure has the steepest dip.
Based on the Lakota sandstone the subsurface
closure is over 1,200 feet. Several east-west
trending faults having a maximum vertical
displacement of 160 feet cut the fold at the
south end of the field. The field rests along
the Beaver Creek drainage in a broad valley,
which is floored by strata of the Wind River
formation and has a surface elevation of 5,250
to 5,400 feet above sea level.
