Title: Possibility of Hydrocarbon Accumulations along Northern Flank of Marietta Syncline, Love County, Oklahoma

Author(s): C. C. Reeves, Jr. (2), J. Russell Mount (3)


The Marietta syncline is complementary to the Wichita-Criner Hills arch, one of the most prolific oil-producing areas of Oklahoma.

The middle Pennsylvanian producing sands of the Wichita-Criner Hills arch are present in the Marietta syncline and are separated from the pre-Pennsylvanian strata by an important unconformity. Oil shows have also been found in the pre-Pennsylvanian formations.

The northeast flank of the Marietta syncline must be considered an unproved and virtually untested petroliferous province. The presence of a small producing field 10 miles southwest in the syncline proper, known reservoir strata, unconformities, and hydrocarbon shows should be enough to justify further exploration.
