Saibal Bhattacharya, Lynn Watney, and Dave Newell

KGS Open File Report 2008-34

Fifty-four gas analyses were collected from published and private sources from the region of the Elmdale Gas Field in Kansas to survey the likely range of compositions of natural gas in this region and to determine what strata may contain low-BTU gas resources. Several pay zones, ranging in age from Permian to Mississippian, produce gas in the region.
