Abstract

Vast reserves of oil and important reserves of gas have been established in the Anadarko basin and central Oklahoma area, and it is anticipated that important new oil and gas reserves will be found in the future. Approximately 3.6 billion bbl of the known recoverable oil reserves had been produced to January 1, 1968. Simpson production of approximately 1.87 billion bbl and Pennsylvanian production of about 1.15 billion bbl have accounted for 84 percent of the total. Past production also has come from the following reservoirs (in decreasing order of importance): Hunton, pre-Chesteran Mississippian, Ar- buckle, Viola, Chesteran, and Permian. Approximately 82 percent of all production, or 2.95 billion bbl, has come from central Oklahoma, which includes the Seminole uplift and the Nemaha ridge.

By contrast, gas production, totaling 15.5 trillion cu ft, has been essentially from the Anadarko basin, which accounts for 65 percent of the total for the state. Gas production has come mainly from the following reservoirs (in decreasing order of importance): Pennsylvanian, Chesteran (Mississippian), and Hunton strata.
