I own a producing mineral interesting in Carter Co., Ok located in Section 12, Township 1S, Range R3w.  Can you tell me what area of the county this is in? Is it close to the South Central Oklahoma Oil Provence (SCOOP)?



Township 1 S, Range 3 W is very near the intersection of Carter where Jefferson and Stephens County connect.  This happens to also be where a good deal of geologic diversity has occurred.  

This is where the Ardmore Basin and the Marietta Basin converge.  Also, not too far to the southwest is the edge of the Meunster Arch which, after plunging south into the Dallas/Fort Worth area, provides a trap for the Barnett Shale.

I am not familiar with the SCOOP so I cannot speak to that but you can refer to the map that I have on the issue:

Hope this assists some.

I will try to answer any question you have. Even if I reject a question, I still will give a shot at what I would do in your position. The only questions I will not take a shot at would be a highly technical engineering or geological question. I am beginning to see quite a few questions from land men and other oil companies and that doesn't matter to me either. I will attempt to help.
