Abstract

The Crinerville oil field, near Brock, Carter County, Oklahoma, occurs on a surface anticline in Pennsylvanian strata on the west side of, and faulted against, the Criner Hills. The reverse dip of 150 on the northeast side of the anticline disappears under a large part of the anticline in shales within 900 feet of the surface. Production comes from Pennsylvanian oil sands which overlap a truncated portion of the original Criner Hills of Ordovician limestone, now buried at a depth of more than 1,000 feet. The oil originated in the Pennsylvanian shales, and a small quantity migrated laterally into the Ordovician. The field was opened in January, 1922, and has produced between 1,000 and 1,500 barrels a day ever since. The total production to June 30, 1927, was slightly more than 2,300,000 barrels.
