Tall Oak Midstream LLC reports that initial natural gas gathering operations are underway on the Tall Oak STACK System. The company’s new gas gathering and processing system is designed to serve producers in Oklahoma’s STACK play. STACK is an acronym for the Sooner Trend, the Anadarko Basin, and Oklahoma’s Canadian and Kingfisher counties. The STACK play sits northwest of Oklahoma City and targets the Woodford and Mississippian-age shales.
Tall Oak is already gathering gas on its STACK System for multiple customers. The company expects to commission the system’s first processing plant, named the Chisholm Plant, in the third quarter of 2015.
The Tall Oak STACK System serves producers targeting the STACK play’s liquids-rich pay zones including the Upper and Lower Mississippian Meramec, Osage, Woodford shale and Hunton formations. The system will also have the capacity to serve production from the Woodford and Springer shale plays and other portions of the South Central Oklahoma Oil Province, known as the SCOOP.
Tall Oak’s STACK System is anchored by long-term gathering and processing agreements with Felix Energy LLC and PayRock Energy LLC. Together, Felix and PayRock control more than 100,000 net acres in the STACK play. Both companies continue to expand their acreage positions and pursue aggressive regional development programs. Tall Oak is also in discussions with other producers in the area to bring gas onto the STACK System.
