Title: History and Development of North Madill Field, Marshall County, Oklahoma: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Ross R. Gahring

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The North Madill field is in Secs. 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 22, and 23, T. 5 S., R. 5 E., Marshall County, Oklahoma. Production is from the 1st, 2d and 3d Bromide sands and the basal McLish sand of the Simpson group.

The structure is a thrust-faulted anticline with the production on the northeast or upthrown block. The date of this faulting and structural formation can not be determined within narrow limits, but it is believed to be of Pennsylvanian age. The Comanchean beds on the surface rest unconformably on rocks of lower Morrowan age and very slightly reflect the underlying structure.

The discovery well was started in August, 1954, and completed in December, 1954, producing from the basal McLish sand.

As of July 1, 1957, the field covered approximately 1,240 acres with 62 producing wells. Total cumulative production to July 1, 1957, was about 1,450,000 barrels. Development is continuing northwest, northeast, and southeast.
