Woodford Shale
United States


Location  southeastern Oklahoma
Thickness  50 - 300 feet
Formation Details  The Woodford Shale Natural Gas Field (Oklahoma Shale) play is mostly in the Arkoma Basin of southeast Oklahoma, but some drilling has extended the play west into the Anadarko Basin and south into the Ardmore Basin. To many oil and gas companies, the Woodford Shale field holds a promising source of Natural Gas. This Natural Gas is trapped in the shale rock thousands of feet below the ground.
Production Activity  The first gas production was recorded in 1939, by late 2004, there were only 24 Woodford Shale gas wells. By early 2008, there were more than 750 Woodford gas wells.
Notes  The Woodford Shale play is the result of what has happened in the Barnett Shale find for the past 20 years. The shale is found at depths from 7,500 to 8,500 feet.
