Houston company intensifies drilling in Kingfisher county

As one of the three main counties that make up the STACK play in Oklahoma, Kingfisher county sees no drop in interest by oil producers.

Witness the Thursday permits to drill issued by the Corporation Commission. Nine permits were issued for Kingfisher County and all nine went to Oklahoma Energy Acquisitions LP, the subsidiary of Alta Mesa Holdings based in Houston.

Six of the permits will apparently be a multi-site pad in Section 31, township 18N and Range 6W.

Three others issued to Oklahoma Energy Acquisitions were in Section 35, township 16N and Range 6W.

The permits were issued as the company reported one of its wells in Kingfisher County produced 989 barrels of oil a day along with 3,193 Mcf of gas. The Bunker Buster 1606 1-13mh is located 9 miles east of Kingfisher (13 16N 6W) and north of state highway 33.

Other permits were issued for Canadian and Grady counties. Three were granted Oklahoma City-based Gulf Exploration to drill in Pontotoc County in the southeast part of the state.
