SCOOP & STACK map infographic


The SCOOP (South Central Oklahoma Oil Province) and STACK (Sooner Trend Anadarko Canadian Kingfisher) are oil reserves that run across most of western Oklahoma and into the Texas panhandle in the Anadarko basin. With advancements in technology, more of these resources are available today, thanks to advanced engineering and innovation.

The unique formations that make up the SCOOP and the STACK have multiple zones that allow for production from multiple layers of rock formations thousands of feet below the surface. Technologies such as horizontal drilling allow these two plays to rival some of the nation’s most reliable and productive areas, including the Permian Basin in Texas and the Marcellus Appalachian Basin in the Northeast, positioning Oklahoma as a top oil and natural gas producing state in the country.
