 Woodford Shale Overview



Located in southeastern Oklahoma, the Woodford shale play is the 2nd oldest gas-producing formation in the U.S., behind its Texas neighbor the Barnett. It is generally viewed as a relatively shallow reservoir, with most wells targeting zones above the 150-foot mark.

Companies with the highest Woodford acreage holdings include Devon Energy, Newfield Exploration and Continental Resources.
