Title: Oil and Gas Developments in Oklahoma and the Panhandle of Texas in 1982

Author(s): Robert A. Northcutt (2)


In 1982, the number of wells drilled in Oklahoma and the Panhandle of Texas increased 7.1% over the record-breaking number in 1981. Exploratory tests increased slightly by 3.1%, and development wells increased 7.3% from 1981. Success rates for exploratory tests increased to 41.6%, but declined slightly for development wells to 75.4%. Deep drilling increased significantly with 16 wells drilled below 20,000 ft. Of the 13,146 wells drilled in the province, 20 successful exploratory wells and 1 exploratory dry hole are considered especially significant. While oil production in the province increased slightly during 1982, gas production declined.
