The Anadarko Region, which was recently added to EIA’s Drilling Productivity Report (DPR), accounted for 437,000 barrels per day (b/d) of crude oil production and 4.9 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas production in July 2017. Production in the region has increased in 2017, and the region accounted for 13% of all new wells drilled in the country in July 2017. With the inclusion of the Anadarko Region, the DPR now covers about 87% of all active onshore rigs in the United States. The Anadarko Region covers a large portion of western Oklahoma and the northeast corner of the Texas panhandle. The region has recently seen an increase in activity, mainly from two areas commonly known as the STACK (Sooner Trend Anadarko Canadian and Kingfisher) and the SCOOP (South Central Oklahoma Oil Province) plays. The new region was defined in the DPR by identifying the most prolific oil-producing counties in the area.
