 Wolfcamp Shale Overview



What is the Wolfcamp Shale?

The Wolfcamp Shale is an oil and gas formation found throughout the Permian Basin.  See Permian Basin Geologic Break down below. Historically, development in the Permian has been mostly vertical. In the last few years, however, companies have shifted focus to horizontal development, specifically in the Wolfcamp A, Wolfcamp B, Wolfcamp C, and Wolfcamp D and, more recently the Wolfcamp XY in the Delaware Basin.
