Title: Geology of Hugoton Gas Field of Southwestern Kansas

Author(s): Clenon C. Hemsell (2)


The producing "zones" of the Hugoton gas area are correlated with the dolomite (lower Sumner) and the dolomite and limestone (Chase group) of Permian age of central Kansas. Between the Hugoton area and the Texas Panhandle gas and oil fields, the top of the Wellington anhydrite (upper Sumner) is correlated with the top of the Texas Panhandle "Big lime," the top of the Herington dolomite (lower Sumner) is correlated with the "Brown dolomite" of the Panhandle "Big lime." (Based on the chert in the Herington formation, this is encountered from 30 to 50 feet below the top of the "Brown dolomite" of the Panhandle "Big lime.") The top of the Winfield limestone (Chase group) is correlated with the "White dolomite" of the Panhandle "Big lime."
