Mountainous Thrust Belt areas are typically challenging settings for oil and gas exploration. The topography and geologic complexity combine such that land based geophysical data acquisition is expensive and may leave many questions unanswered. However, the pay back from successful exploration can be large. One such successful example is the discovery of Covenant Field by Wolverine Gas and Oil, in the Utah Thrust Belt, USA in 2003. ARKeX in association with JEBCO Seismic have acquired 150 sq mi of BlueQube data, centered on the Covenant Field discovery. The objective of this work was to identify the BlueQube response of a known anticlinal structure in the thrust belt trend. With an understanding of the response from this known field, the BlueQube data is being used to develop an exploration strategy along the Thrust Belt.
