2013 Midcontinent Playbook
The red-hot Mississippi Lime play in north-central Oklahoma and south-central Kansas is a next-generation resource play: a conventional reservoir made far more economic by applying unconventional technology. Activity is surging, with hundreds of drilling permits filed and strong well results increasing the buzz. Meanwhile, the Anadarko Basin’s Woodford play is extending from the original Cana Woodford area into new regions particularly rich in liquids. This playbook includes a 24"x36" wall map.
