In the early 1980’s I joined […]

Oklahoma Energy Producers Alliance regulatory affairs chairman Tom Dunlap discusses The need for data to help at the Oklahoma Corporation Commission find remedies for the destruction of their 40 vertical wells.
Every horizontal and vertical well drilled in Kingfisher County… All the yellow lines represent horizontal wells drilled right through them and fracked with millions of pounds of sand and millions of barrels of water. No wonder the vertical wells are destroyed! This should never been allowed to happen, at least not without willing sellers or […]
Newfield’s rate of return is higher in both the Scoop and the Stack plays(with a 2% tax rate) in Oklahoma than either the Bakken (10% tax rate) or the Eagle Ford (8.5% tax rate) Oklahoma is subsidizing their drilling in other states.

The well with the pressure survey (Wakeman) actually got “bumped” (our term) from a November, 2015 frac that caused a loss in oil production (30 BOPM to 5 BOPM) (See decline curve), then […]
We ask every school board in Oklahoma to take this same action – then follow it up by having those that care about education call their state legislators with one simple message ” restore the gross production tax to 7% for everyone, which is lower than any other state and pay our teachers” RESOLUTION Whereas, […]
