Title: Hamon Locke Multipay Field: ABSTRACT

Author(s): John W. Mason

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The Hamon Locke field on the Wheeler-Roberts county line in the Texas Panhandle was discovered late in 1970 by the Jake L. Hamon No. 1 Locke. To date, 4 wells have been completed and 1 is currently staked. Producing formations are the Ellenburger, Simpson, Hunton, and Brown dolomite with proved productive granite wash and Mississippian zones behind pipe in 3 of the wells. The field is structurally controlled and was drilled on seismic information refined by subsurface data from 2 nearby dry holes which were also drilled on seismic information, emphasizing again the need for continuing review and interdisciplinary coordination. The hydrocarbons produced are significantly different from other nearby lower Paleozoic fields, and some conjectures are presented to stimulate fur her work to account for these differences.
