"The Pitchfork has produced
millions of barrels of oil in the prolific Tannehill sands."
With its favorable location on the northeast flanks of the Midland Basin
of West Texas, the Pitchfork has produced millions of barrels of oil
since the first discovery back in 1980. Since then, more than 120 wells
have been completed in the prolific Tannehill sands at depths averaging
4,000'. Initial flow rates on some of the recent wells have been in
excess of 200 barrels per day.
Currently, about 8,000 acres are held by production, with another 40,000
acres held by active oil and gas leases or options. Companies with a
presence include Medders Oil Company, Hollis R. Sullivan, Inc., Sauder
Management Company, Dominion Oklahoma Texas, Cholla Petroleum and Polk
Petroleum. A significant amount of acreage is available for leasing.
