The Cherokee Basin is located in the Mid-Continent region in southern Kansas, northern Oklahoma, and western Missouri and covers approximately 26,000 square miles. The predominant production is natural gas produced from coals and shales and natural gas and oil from conventional formations. Our investment focus is currently targeting oil development by exploiting Cherokee Basin oil opportunities previously uneconomical due to commodity price levels. Our production is primarily from the Pennsylvanian coals, shales, and sands. Major zones are the Mulky Iron Post Shale; Weir Pitt Coal; and Skinner, Red Fork, and Bartlesville sands.
