Title: Morrow-Springer Trend, Anadarko Basin, Target for the 70's: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Herbert Davis

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The Morrow Formation has accounted for much of the gas reserves on the shelf area and a limited part of the deep area in the Anadarko basin from 1947 to 1970.

The Morrow-Springer Formations offer multiple stratigraphic targets in this vast sedimentary basin. Deep drilling during the 70's could account for additional gas reserves from the Morrow-Springer.

As the stratigraphy, sedimentation, and depositional patterns are revealed through drilling, additional fields similar to Buffalo Wallow upper Morrow gas field, Hemphill County, Texas; East Elk City Springer gas field, Beckham County, Oklahoma; Indianapolis Springer gas field, Custer County, Oklahoma; and Laverty Springer gas field, Grady County, Oklahoma, will account for much of this reserve.
