Title: Bryson Oil Field, Jack County, Texas

Author(s): J. P. Bowen (2), James F. Gibbs (3)


The Bryson oil field, Jack County, Texas, was discovered in April, 1928, by the Panhandle Refining Company. Oil is produced chiefly from the Strawn formation, of Pennsylvanian age. The ultimate recovery from the field is estimated at 10,750,000 barrels, to be recovered from 1,300 proved acres, or an average of 7,500 barrels per acre. The gravity of the oil ranges from 40° to 42° Be.

The accumulation of the oil is related to a series of lenticular sand bodies, folded into small anticlinal noses, with a northwest dip of 85 feet per mile. The major structure with which the Strawn beds of the Bryson field are associated is a monocline dipping northwest at the rate of 45 feet per mile. The regional feature known as the Bend flexure is a few miles west of the field.
