RARE WILDCAT DRILLING IN REMOTE ARIZONA STRIP
Daniel J. Brennan Regulatory Compliance Specialists Scottsdale, Ariz. A recent application by United Gas Search Inc., Tulsa, for a permit to drill in extreme northwestern Arizona has sparked interest in that area, largely unknown in the oil business. The area is known locally as the Arizona strip. It lies north and northwest of the Grand Canyon (Fig. 1). There is not even a road to the strip from the rest of Arizona. Access is by road from Utah or Nevada.
