Devon’s Latest Multi-Unit Well to be Drilled in Kingfisher County

Devon Energy has a big multi-unit project in plan as it widens exploration of Oklahoma’s STACK play.

As indicated in OK Energy Today’s Well Completion reports, the Oklahoma City energy company has been permitted to move ahead with 7 wells at one site.

Permits were granted for Mosasaurus 4-16N-9W, a site located near the unincorporated community of Omega in Kingfisher County. The wells will be drilled in an area midway between Kingfisher and Watonga and north of State highway 33. All will be drilled in the Mississippian, Ex-Chester zone.

The name “Mosasaurus” is that of an extinct carnivorous aquatic lizard found in western Europe and North America. It existed between about 70 and 66 million years ago.


The seven wells will be among 9 issued by the state for Kingfisher county. Others went to Chisholm Oil and Gas Operating LLC of Fort Worth, Texas and Oklahoma Energy Acquisitions LP, a subsidiary of Alta Mesa Holdings LP of Houston, Texas.

Other permits show Continental Resources Inc. will drill in Blaine, Custer and Stephens counties.
