ABSTRACT

Oil accumulation in Wilbarger County, Texas, is due primarily to the presence of Pennsylvanian beds up warped by the Red River uplift of north-central Texas which extends east and west through the county. The stratigraphy may be briefly described as consisting of 1,100 feet of basal Permian, underlain by approximately 1,400 feet of undifferentiated Pennsylvanian, superimposed upon a Cambro-Ordovician and igneous mass. The important producing horizons, of which there are several in each pool, are of Pennsylvanian age. The discovery of the several pools of Wilbarger County may be directly traced to either surface or subsurface geology.
