Oklahoma Weekly Report - 06/25/18
Oklahoma Frac Activity
- Alta Mesa’s 2018 frac activity has been focused in the Mississippian Formation (in Kingfisher County). Using OseFrac’s pivot table, we were able to compare data from all active operators in the area.
- We found that Alta Mesa always uses acid in their fracs, and water makes up an average of 92% of the total frac.
- Devon, on the other hand, only uses acid in their fracs 10% of the time, and water makes up an average of 95% of the total frac.
- Both companies are operating in the STACK: who has the better Frac design?
Oklahoma Leasing Activity
Leasing remains high in McClain and Stephens counties.
Mustang Fuel has acquired more than 100,000 gross acres in the Arkoma Basin from Bravo Arkoma.
Oklahoma Spacing Filings
Devon is looking to accelerate activity in the STACK.
This is no surprise to us as we’ve already noticed they’ve been ramping up spacing activity in Blaine and Kingfisher counties. Typically an increase in spacing is a strong indicator of future development.
Oklahoma Completion Filings
Oklahoma Pooling Applications
Casillas Petroleum crept into the top 5 due to their recent activity in the SCOOP. Pooling Orders show that they are targeting the Mississippian, Hunton, Woodford, and Sycamore formations.

Oklahoma Transfer Activity
BCE Mach, a joint venture between Bayou City Management and Mach Resources, recently acquired more than 100 wells in Wagoner County from WCT Operating.
