The development of the deep portion of the region in southwestern Oklahoma triggered a new oil-boom era when Robert A. Hefner III, “the Father of Deep Natural Gas” began an extensive drilling program in the area around Elk City. In 1969 the GHK’s Number One Green well, drilled to a depth of 24,454 feet in Beckham County, blew in at the highest pressure ever recorded.
A drilling boom in western Oklahoma resulted as oilmen rushed to the state as hundreds of millions of dollars poured from the earth. As you can imagine, this made several owners of Oklahoma mineral rights extremely happy.
Robert Hefner, “Father of Deep Natural Gas” in the Anadarko Basin.
Significant oil and gas discoveries have been made throughout this region, including the Hugoton-Panhandle Gas Field of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas in the 1920s and numerous others in Oklahoma, such as the West Edmond Field, the Union City Field, and the Elk City Field, after 1950.
Oklahoma’s history has long been tied to both oil prices and natural gas prices. Western Oklahoma mineral owners in this prized basin, over the years, have been able to lease their minerals many times over and over and are thankful for companies like Chesapeake and SandRidge.
