Abstract

The Irma field is situated in Nevada County, Arkansas. At present sixty-five wells produce 2,600 barrels daily from the Nacatoch sand at about 1,200 feet. Irma is a fault field although no deep production has yet been found. The faulting and doming are clearly shown on the surface. The average throw of the fault is about 400 feet. The closure along the fault is about 50 feet. The accumulation of the oil here is due to faulting and the closing of the monoclinal structure against the fault.
