Gageby Creek Gas Field, Anadarko Basin: Abstract

Donald D. Anderson1


Gageby Creek, in northwestern Wheeler County, Texas, is the location of what has been described as one of the biggest gas wells in the World. The Phillips Petroleum Company's Dyson A-1 was completed in 1966 for a calculated open flow potential of 1.74 billion cubic feet of gas daily from Silurian Hunton Dolomite perforations between 14,836 and 15,009 feet, and 2.45 million cfd from Simpson Dolomite perforations between 15,520 and 15,795 feet. The huge find has set off a 100 mile wave of deep Anadarko Basin drilling in the Texas Panhandle and eastward into Oklahoma.
