Current Projects

Below is a list of our current projects. Please contact us for further information.

King Oil Project 1: Location: Western Illinois
Extension of existing Rushville Central Field.
TD ( total depth)  650′
Zone Devonian/Silurian

King Oil Project 2: Location: Nevada
Very small override in a potential multi-billion barrel conventional and non conventional anticlinal prospect with seismic, well, gravity data, and 3500′ closure.  This is located not too far from Noble Energy’s new discovery near Elko which they say may be a “game changer” and may produce up to 50,000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) in several years (Not for sale). We are also working on numerous additional potential multi-billion barrel  projects in Nevada (Project 7).

King Oil Project 3: The Rolling hills hide a secret.
A 20+ mile anticline mapped and only one hole drilled in the late 1920’s.  The geological work appears similar to that of the time done by Standard Oil, The Ohio Oil company, and other major oil companies as they marched west in their quest for oil. Ten core holes were drilled to a benchmark depth that confirmed a 100′ structure. One well was drilled and tested at 25 and 5 barrels of oil respectively per day (natural) from two Mississippian sand zones that ranged in thickness from 10-20′. The shallower zone was around 2600′. The lower zone, around 2800′ also had substantial gas. A show was also noted in the geological analysis in Lansing, Kansas City around 3100′. The prolific, Viola and Simpson Sandstones and Arbuckle remain untested. This detailed geological report is not in state files but was obtained by our partner from a landowner’s widow.  Wells in this state almost always have multi-pay zones on structure.  A 20 mile anticline in Illinois, similarly situated with 170 and 350′ of closure respectively, has produced over 600 million barrels of oil primarily from two sand zones, plus Devonian and a little Trenton.  Would we be happy with even just a small fraction of that on this prospect? Absolutely!

King Oil Project 4: Caves full of oil?
Just as it is possible to track animals from the footprints they leave, so, it should be possible to track where caves might have been by the footprint that collapsed caves leave behind.  If these caves are within existing basins they possess the largest possible force in the world for oil accumulation: gravity. Think of a sink, the sink being the oil basin. What happens if the plug is pulled?  All the fluid goes down the hole. Right? The same theory should hold true in oil and gas basins. Karst terrains and sinkholes are present all over the world in certain areas. Think, Florida. Think Mammoth Cave in Kentucky with over 400 miles of mapped caverns and passageways.  Our target is the prolific Arbuckle which has produced billions of barrels of oil, which is also known for unconformities and karst terrains.  We believe we have the signature for a collapsed cave system which may very well be attached to caves that are not collapsed and run for many miles.  The concept is not new.  Subsurface water aquifers and sinkholes have been known about for years.  We are simply adding oil to the equation.

King Oil Project 5: Start at the top!
A 70 mile long anticline with 3500′ closure.  Our prospect is 2.5 miles surface miles from the crest and is mapped about 150′ down dip.  The log from the well drilled in the 1940’s states clearly: “slight oil and gas on pit came to surface of mud in bubbles” in three different zones up to 3,300′ in depth!  Think about it. We are 150′ down dip from the crest!   The well is located in a very highly faulted area which is capable of causing oil and gas to migrate here from many miles away.  Drilling mud inhibits the flow of oil and gas.  Why has the crest NOT been tested?  A small anticline in Illinois, not in a highly faulted area, the Louden Anticline, only 20 miles in length and with only 170′ and 350′ closure has produced over 600 million barrels of oil.  Basic oil and gas geology says if you have a show of oil down dip, go up dip from there for the big stuff!

King Oil Project 6: Double Whammy
Both an impressive gravity high and an adjacent offset 110 mile long, 70 mile wide anticline with 750′ closure remain untested for Arbuckle production.  The very clear gravity high is also untested for Devonian, Silurian, Trenton, and St. Peter sandstone production as well.  Gravity maps were called ” elephant guns” by the older generation of geologists as they identify large basement (granite) structures and, therefore, potential traps for large oilfields.  Many of the huge oil fields of the past were identified and discovered by gravity map data where little or no drilling data was available.  A well log approximately 250′ downdip from the anticlinal crest notes a “strong kick on Neutron log” for 10′ in the Arbuckle.  That means we have potential good or excellent porosity.  What’s updip?  The adjacent very large gravity structure also remains untested.

King Oil Project 7:  A herd of elephants
A large number of multi-billion barrel potential oil prospects. Talk about elephants. This is the whole herd!

Everyone is talking about the Bakken in North Dakota, Montana and Canada as being so fantastic.  Estimates of reserves have been up to 40 billion barrels of oil. This area has similar age and TOC (total organic content) shale that is up to eight times thicker, plus two more similar shales, plus thirteen known basins with numerous anticlines and potential oil and gas traps and an overthrust belt with a Devonian section that may repeat three times at depth!  This is where we believe the future world class giant oil and gas fields will be discovered.  And we are not alone.  Noble Energy  acquired around 350,000 acres and drilled a dozen wells to conclude it may be “Game Changer”  with 50,000 BOPD potential in several years.  There are numerous opportunities to get in on the ground floor before the boom… but that door is closing fast!

We consider accepting  joint venture partners on many of our projects.
