Abstract

The Fairport oil field, Russell County, Kansas, is at the northwestern edge of the Mid-Continent area. The prominent Cretaceous surface structure becomes stronger in the Permian and Pennsylvanian, and overlies uplifted crystalline rocks. The oil is at the top of the structure in a pool 1/2 mile wide by 4 miles long which has produced 3,500,000 barrels of 40° Be. oil during the past three years.
