The Granite Wash... is an alluvial wash which was eroded from the ancestral Wichita/Amarillo Uplift and deposited along the bordering north and south flanks. A multitude of operators have completed over, 4,200 wells in the Granite, Des Moines, Strawn, Cherokee and Atoka Wash from 1956 to present. Depths range from 300 ft. to 19,000 ft. and pay zone span from 10-4000 ft. Peak production rates of 14MMcf/d and 2000 BOPD have been reported. However the high degree of variability in production outcome and pay quality has made sustainable development of this play a challenge.
