Southern Ute Indian Tribe Department of Energy

Welcome

The Southern Ute Indian Tribe Department of Energy (SUIT DOE) oversees the development of tribal energy resources on the Southern Ute Indian Reservation (SUIR). Abundant natural gas resources are located within the SUIR due to its location within the San Juan Basin. These gas resources are currently being extracted within the SUIR, primarily coal bed methane gas from the Fruitland Formation. Further development of oil and gas resources within the SUIR is expected due to demand and commodity prices. Development of oil and gas resources generally involves drilling wells, constructing access roads, installing pipelines, and building compression and treatment facilities.
