Yes, you were...part of the entire environmental topic.

Sad that so many can't catch that one....

I'm surprised someone hasn't proposed just leveling the mountain for another refinery, since all that oil will be coming to Oklahoma...



There’s already oil oozing out in places around there Wink

Wouldn't surprise me.  Haven't noticed any shale there - seems like what I can see is mostly sandstone, but certainly wouldn't be unique.

Out east by the casino at I-44 there was a layer of shale visible from the highway - both sides.  The south side of the road often had "oozing" from the layers before the rebuild.  Lots of crude oil around here.

According to the document I read, 241 wells punched in the Mooser Creek Watershed area.



Here’s the rock formations of the area from the Arkansas River west:

There ya go....lots of oil there.  That's just a little bit north of the Glen pool....and there was a lot of oil all along that corridor.  Probably still is - we should get them to start fracking...!

Lots of shale!!  Got to be some oil oozing out of the ground somewhere on the mountain.

Some of the more fascinating relics on TM are the old drilling sites.  No telling how much stuff is scattered out in Jenks and Glenpool.  There was also quite a bit of exploration in Red Fork around the same time.

Thousands of wells.  I see old pictures from time to time of old wooden derrick fields and while not sure where most of them are, this link shows the Ida E Glenn well and field.

http://www.glennpooloilfield.org/history/

There is an old well in the riverbed (Arkansas) south of I-44.  Got some good pictures of it one time during low water.  If I knew how to post pics, I would put them up here.  There are some spools of cable, an old engine of some sort, casing broken over with some production tubing inside, and what looks like some kind of tank thing - maybe a separator - "bolted" together with large rivets.  Looks ancient, but can't be more than about 100 years old.

Lived about 4 blocks from Rogers high school for a few years and there was always rumors about oil wells under the area.  I am pretty sure there was some coal mining near there, 'cause one of the neighbors said he had done some strip mining there in the teens.  He moved back in the area after the war when the neighborhood was being built (late 30's to late 40's except WWII).

Seems like I heard rumors about wells on the old Mayo Farm, but that may be somewhere else - don't think there was a whole lot there... (Mayo Meadows...south of 21st, west of Yale.  Across from fairground.)

There was a good deal of coal mining in and around Mayo Meadow.  I’d heard as far west as Pittsburg, as far east as Darlington or Fulton,  and as far north as 15th but I don’t recall now.  There was some fear of sinkholes about 20 or 25 years ago from old mining activity.
