Map: Where Oklahoma Oil is Produced

Half of Oklahoma’s crude oil is produced in 10 counties, preliminary data from the state Corporation Commission show.

The three counties with the highest production  — Carter, Ellis and Stephens counties — alone account for nearly a quarter of the 34.7 million barrels of crude oil and condensate produced in Oklahoma from January to June 2012.

Oil production, as you can see from the interactive map below, tends to increase as you move west. Oklahoma’s 11 easternmost counties haven’t produced any oil this year, and a diagonal band of relatively sparse production extends from Washington to Bryan County.

The state’s No. 1 producer, Carter County, has produced more than 3.7 million barrels — roughly 10.7 percent of all crude oil and condensate produced in Oklahoma this year.

    Garvin, Canadian, McIntosh, Hughes. Not sure what to do with them

    • RC Scott

      Dear Brenda,

    Having just found your question…. I hope you have NOT done anything yet. I do consult for mineral owners about JUST these types of questions. Please get in touch. Email fossil@geologist.com

    Brenda … Have you found out any more about your mineral rights? You need to make sure that you don’t just give your interest in these away.

    Hi Behind every blade of glass!
    I saw your post on BinaryScamWatchMonitor PLEASE DO NOT INVEST IN TRADEO as you will lose all of your money. Bassam is also a crook 2 weeks back i invested in Tradeo and lost all my money within 4 days i can even forward you my screenshots as proof. After you lose you money he will not post your comments on his site. He is just like all the other bastards out there but a little bit slicker

    • Sandile

      Thanks. I won’t invest. Have you tried things like copybuffet and neo2 or other automated software?

      • Lungile Mpati

        A month back i registered with Neo2 and was assigned to Banc de Binary as a broker but they were so pushy that i decided not to fund my account as for the others (automated systems) i have not tried them and i doubt i ever will. They are all scams cause’ if carefully scrutinise reviews you will notice complaints except from those people who stand to gain affiliate commisions As for Bassam’s website BinaryScamWatchmonitor the reason he asks for a screen shot before he can send you the settings for Tradeo he needs to be sure that you did indeed fund your account so He can get $100 bonus that’s how he’s able to give cash backs. My advice is to just forget about the automated systems and join a reputable signals group and learn to trade yourself which is what i’m currently doing.

        • Colin Crane

          I tried EXTrader.Com stay away from those binery sites is my opinion.

          • Colin Crane

            sorry EZTrader

    • Aimz Garciia

      curious as to why you posted on his blog about 2mths ago claiming “it’s a great platform and you can make alot of money hands free”??

      • Lungile Mpati

        My comment was edited by that crook Bassam! Please stay far away from Tradeo ’cause it’s a SCAM. Last month i registered, funded my account and followed the traders suggested by Bassam. Within 4 days my account was dust i can even forward you my account screen shots as proof. I’ve sent Bassam countless comments and he has not posted a single one on his website. Which is the reason you will never hear a response from people who fund their accounts cause once they loose their money HE DOES NOT POST THEIR COMPLAINTS. Which is why i made my mission to try and warn everyone who considers signing up to anything that he promotes on his website because he also a crook.

    Can anyone tell me if 160 Acres Divided up among 6 People with the Mineral rights to this land can drill Individually on their sections ?

    I am getting a Contract but the way i Understand it all 6 people has to agree at once before Drilling can begin ?

    Can i just drill my 27 acres Alone ?

    THis is just the Mineral rights on the Land we dont own the land.

    We have got renewals for leases with small amounts of money but never no drilling

    Land Located in OkFuskee County.

    Also how doe the Oil drilling Companies componsate you ? is there a percent per barrel they give you ?
