SandRidge finding strong oil flows in Kansas, so far

WICHITA — SandRidge Energy is definitely finding oil in Kansas, according to the company. In a financial presentation to analysts last week, the company said it is getting an average of 487 barrels of oil equivalent a day in Harper County; 250 barrels  of BEO a day in Barber County; and 251 barrel of BOE a day in Comanche County. Although the company has completed 254 wells using horizontal drilling and fracking, most are in Oklahoma. So far, there are relatively few drilled in Kansas at this point, so it’s hard to know of those averages will hold up. The company said, in the presentation, that it plans 380 wells in north Oklahoma/southern Kansas, including 50 wells in western Kansas above the southern tier of counties.
