The Anadarko covers 50,000 square miles defined
by the map above. In 1999, the Anadarko Basin was the highest
ranking natural gas field in the United States. The most prolific
part of the field was wildcatted by LE Sanders in 1922 near Liberal,
Kansas, natural gas was later discovered in 1927.
Natural Gas maintained the field until 1987. In 1996,
shale to natural gas was invented in
the Barnett shale
because of its proximity to the
Basin, this basin
the Anadarko Basin immediately became the next basin where natural
gas to shale technology was applied.
The Anadarko proved most prolific on the western slopes of the basin
first identified as the Hugoton field which was later defined as
the Hugoton Basin,
which became the most prolific producer for its size in the country.
The Hugoton, West
Edmond Field, Union City Field and the Elk City Field, are
also the only commercial source for iodine in the United States.
The basin continued to produce even during the slumps of 2015- 2016
because of natural gas, helium, and iodine production.
