Arkoma Basin (Shallow Natural Gas)

The Arkoma Basin is an east-west trending basin in eastern Oklahoma situated between the Ozark Uplift and the Ouachita Mountains.  The basin is almost entirely a gas province which has produced 5 TCFG, and has 5 to 10 TCFG remaining as developed reserves.

Over 25 different pay zones have been established in the basin; from the early Des Moines Booch Sand to the Cambrian Arbuckle Limestone.  Producing depths range from less than 1000' to over 15,000'.

Detailed seismic mapping by Mr. Suhm has resulted in the discovery of over 40 untested structures which are mainly faulted anticlines.  Many of these structures are proximal to producing wells or flanked by wells with shows.
