Sormir Petroleum: History

In February 1927, Sormir Petroleum completed a discovery well southeast of Rock Springs near the Colorado/Wyoming state line, in what would become the prolific East Hiawatha field.  The East and West Hiawatha gas fields, located in Vermilion Creek basin and on the state line between southwest Wyoming and northwest Colorado, were of commercial importance at this time in history, as the field terminus of the gas pipe-line system supplying Salt Lake City and adjacent towns with natural gas.

Hiawatha gas fields became economically important in 1929 when a 330-mile gas line connected them with Salt Lake City, Ogden and towns en route.  This development immediately focused attention on the gas-producing fields and the efforts of the producing company to develop them in an orderly, economical manner. Several outstanding interests were acquired and working agreements made with others.  Sormir Petroleum is a privately held corporation.

Incorporated in Delaware in 1928, Sormir Petroleum continues to maintain key producing assets in Oil & Gas production and exploration in the U.S..

In 1993, Sormir Petroleum merged with Circle Petroleum Corporation.
