Woodford a horizontal Anadarko basin target

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, May 28 -- Cimarex Energy Co., Denver, is pursuing gas and oil in Devonian Woodford shale with horizontal wells in the Anadarko basin in western Oklahoma.

The company said in late April it had five wells in various stages of completion and evaluation and was drilling three more wells. Cimarex is evaluating use of 4,000-ft laterals, while early wells went to 13,000 ft true vertical depth and had 2,500 ft laterals.

Cimarex's 1H-27 Jameson, in 27-14n-10w, near Geary in Canadian County, is the basin's first reported horizontal Woodford completion, said IHS Inc. It flowed 2.76 MMcfd of gas and 61 b/d of oil on initial tests of perforations at 12,800-15,030 ft measured depth.

Hester et al. with the US Geological Survey, using a study area in northwestern Oklahoma, pointed to the Woodford as a possible large potential horizontal drilling target in an earlier article (see map, OGJ, Dec. 3, 1990, p. 73).
