Abstract

The Rainbow Bend oil field is located near the west line of Cowley County, Kansas, about midway between Arkansas City and Winfield. Since its discovery in December, 1923, approximately 9,000,000 barrels of oil testing about 410 Be. gravity have been produced. The oil comes from sand at the very base of the Pennsylvanian, and production seems to be controlled by the distribution of this sand, which is lenticular. A well-defined, anticlinal dome is defined by the top of the Mississippian limestone, the oil sand occurring on the southeast flank of this fold. Development is controlled by one company; consequently, there is no overdrilling. Casinghead gasoline is an important product from the wells.
