Outside PublicationThis study deﬁnes stranded conventional gas resources as gas in identiﬁed (discovered and appraised) conventional oil and gas accumulations which are not currently commercially producible for either physical or economic reasons. The discovered conventional North Slope gas is stranded because there is currently no transportation system to take the gas to a market.

West Edmond field, located in central Oklahoma, is one of the largest oil accumulations in the Silurian–Devonian Hunton Group in this part of the Anadarko Basin. Production from all stratigraphic units in the field exceeds 170 million barrels of oil (MMBO) and 400 billion cubic feet of gas (BCFG), of which approximately 60 MMBO and 100 BCFG have been produced from the Hunton Group. The USGS completed a geologic-based assessment of the undiscovered oil and gas resources of the Anadarko Basin province in western Oklahoma and Kansas, northern Texas, and southeastern Colorado in 2010 (Higley et al., 2011).
