Our Kight Gilcrease Sand Unit (KGSU) comprises an area of approximately 883.7 acres located eight miles South of Wewoka and directly astride State Highway 56, in Seminole County, Oklahoma.
The overall Gilcrease Sand Formation, named after iconic Oklahoma oilman Tom Gilcrease, has produced in excess of 580 million BO since the early days of oil production in Oklahoma in the 1920’s and 1930’s.
The Oklahoma Corp. Commission Oil & Gas Division estimates only 11% to 14% of the original oil in situ has been produced. This creates an outstanding opportunity for substantial new low-cost production using modern enhanced recovery techniques.
From primary production to date – KGSU has produced 1,690,240 BO and has not yet had water-flood enhanced recovery techniques applied. This means that considerable potential exists for future oil recovery from the KGSU utilizing such techniques.
The nearby Sasakwa Gilcrease Sand Unit has historic reported production of 1,233,009 BO from primary production, and secondary production of 1,000,730 BO from water-flood enhanced recovery. Sasakwa is located within one mile directly South of the KGSU, and is a good example of successful implementation of water-flood recovery operations.
