General well spacing requirements

General Well Spacing Requirements

OAC 165:10-1-21

  • Any unspaced common source of supply 2,500 feet or more in depth – No closer than 330 feet from any property line or 600 feet from any drilling or producing oil or gas well from the same formation

  • Any unspaced common source of supply 2,500 feet or less in depth – No closer than 165 feet from any property line or 300 feet from any drilling or producing oil or gas well from the same formation


Drilling and spacing units

Drilling and Spacing Units

OAC 165: 10-1-22

(a) The Commission may establish drilling and spacing units in any common

source of supply a s provided by law, and the special orders creating drilling

and spacing units shall supersede the provisions of 165:10-1-21. It shall be

The responsibility of any operator who proposes to drill a well to ascertain the

existence and provisions of special spacing orders.

(b) The drilling of a well or wells in to a common source of supply in an area

covered by an application pending before the Commission see king the

establishment of drilling and spacing units is prohibited except by special

order of the Commission. However, if an Intent to Drill (Form 1000) has been

approved by the Commission and operations commenced prior to the filing of a

spacing application, the operator shall be permitted to drill and complete the

well without a special order of the Commission.


Permitted well locations within standard drilling and spacing units

Permitted Well Locations Within Standard Drilling and Spacing Units

OAC 165: 10-1-24

  • (a) The permitted well location within any standard square drilling and spacing unit shall be the center of the unit. The permitted well locations within standard rectangular drilling and spacing units shall be the centers of alternate square tracts constituting the units (alternate halves of the units); provided, however, a well will be deemed drilled at the permitted location if drilled within the following tolerance areas:

  • (1) Not less than 165 feet from the boundary of any standard 10-acre drilling and spacing unit or the proper square 10-acre tract within any standard 20-acre drilling and spacing unit.

  • (2) Not less than 330 feet from the boundary of any standard 40-acre drilling and spacing unit or the proper square 40-acre tract within any standard 80-acre drilling and spacing unit.

  • (3) Not less than 660-feet from the boundary of any standard 160-acre drilling and spacing unit or the proper square 160-acre tract within any standard 320-acre drilling and spacing unit.

  • (4 ) Not less than 1320 feet from the boundary of any standard 640-acre drilling and spacing unit.

Law of capture

Law of Capture

  • Texas – Oil and Gas in Place

  • Oklahoma – Whatever Oil and Gas can be “captured” or “found and reduced to possession” through your wellbore

  • Cannot take more than your “fair share” by Statute (52 O.S. 87.1)

  • OGIP (Original Gas in Place)

  • Uncompensated Drainage – Issues
