The Mid-Continent area includes properties located in western Oklahoma, southwestern Kansas and the Texas Panhandle.  These properties produce from regionally significant geologic formations such as the Cottage Grove, Morrow, Atoka, Redfork and Lansing.  The most significant of our Mid-Continent properties are the Postle Field and the Northeast Hardesty Unit, both of which are located in Texas County, Oklahoma.  CO2 miscible flooding has been on-going in the Postle Field since 1995.  CO2 for the projects is sourced from the Bravo Dome Field in eastern New Mexico.  We are also the sole owner of the Dry Trails gas plant located at the Postle Field complex.  In addition, we are the sole owner of a collection of facilities and CO2 transportation pipelines delivering product from New Mexico to the Postle and Northeast Hardesty fields.  Breitburn owns interests in 357 productive wells in the Mid-Continent and has over 32,000 gross acres of leasehold acreage.
