Low-BTU Gas in the Permian Chase Group in the Ryersee Field in Western Kansas: A Case History where Technology Creates a Marketable Commodity

Kansas Geological Survey
Open-file Report 2003-57


The Ryersee Field, in T.18S.-R.21W., is located on the northeastern flank of the Hugoton embayment of the Anadarko basin, on the northern end of the Bazine anticline. The Bazine Anticline is in southeastern Ness County, KS.

Ryersee Field is 65 miles (105 km) northeast of the giant Permian gas fields (i.e., Hugoton, Panoma) in the Hugoton embayment. Ryersee Field is near the northern end of the Bazine anticline. Several oil fields are located along the 10-mile (16-km) crest of this structure. Low-BTU gas fields paying from the Chase Group 15 miles (24 km) southeast suggests low-BTU gas deposits in this region could be substantally extended.
