Maps available of oil, gas fields

November 11, 2009


Nearly 6,000 oil and gas fields drilled in Kansas since 1860 are shown in a series of new maps now available from the Kansas Geological Survey, based at Kansas University.

A wall-sized map of the state shows the location of all oil and gas fields as well as counties, county seats, state and federal highways, and township and range boundaries. Twelve other more detailed maps, each covering an area up to 55 by 90 miles, include individual field names.

Copies of the maps are available from the Kansas Geological Survey, 1930 Constant Ave., 864-3965, or; and at 4150 Monroe St. in Wichita, 316-943-2343. The cost is $20 for the statewide map and $10 for each area map, plus shipping and handling.
