Chesapeake Leads The Way In Washita County


Chesapeake has been very public in discussing their transition to a more balanced liquids/gas company.  Due to the liquids and oil, their Colony Granite Wash Play is their second highest ROR play according to a recent operations update.  Chesapeake says they discovered the Colony Granite Wash play primarily in Custer and Washita counties, OK in 2007.  Below are a few charts generated from HPDI production tools showing historical production and a type curve for their Washita County, Granite Wash program.

Here is a map showing the current Chesapeake producing Washita County lease, colored by cumulative gas produced and bubbled by maximum monthly liquids produced.  This shows the leases in section 11N 16W have the most liquids being produced.

They have stated they will ramp-up their Granite Wash program in 2010 consisting of 7 rigs and 40 net wells.  Below are their Washita County 2010 permits, the majority in the North-Central part of the county.  Layered in this graph are Drillinginfo Landtracs showing the lease outlines for any leases taken out in the Granite Wash area.
