Stay on the leading-edge of the Midcontinent's growing potential!
The Midcontinent region may be steeped in oil and gas history, but much of the story has yet to be written. The same unconventional technologies revolutionizing oil and gas plays throughout the U.S. are unlocking potentially-vast reservoirs of oil in America's heartland. Promising new unconventional formations are coming online and new life is being breathed into long-standing conventional sources in Southwest Kansas, the Texas Panhandle, Northwest Arkansas and throughout Oklahoma.
Declining trends that have spanned decades are now being reversed and some experts are predicting this is just the tip of the iceberg. And at the heart of the Midcontinent region, Oklahoma is home to the country's top crude storage and trading hub in Cushing – with 80 million barrels of storage capacity and links to major refineries throughout the Midwest and Gulf Coast.
With an abundance of resources available and direct access to end-markets through a well-developed midstream infrastructure, it's no secret why top producers like Devon Energy and Chesapeake Energy call Oklahoma home.
- At 500,000+ bpd, Midcontinent oil production has more than doubled since 2005 (240,000 bpd in June 2005).
- By 2020, Midcontinent oil production could be double where it is today.
- This year Oklahoma's monthly crude oil production peaked at more than 11 million barrels, a level not seen since the late 1980s.
- Top E&P companies are flocking to hot new plays like the SCOOP, STACK and Springer shale, creating a growth in production.
