Online Resource Book Published [Washington, D.C.]: United States Department of the Interior, Geological Survey, Washington: United States Government Printing Office Description 1 online resource (iii, pages, 3 unnumbered pages of plates): illustrations (some color). URL. Happy and Seberger fields are small fields located in Rawlins County, Kansas, approximately 30 miles (50 km) north of Colby and 40 miles (64 km) northeast of Goodland (Fig. ). Oil and gas in these fields are produced from limestone formations of the Lansing and Kansas City groups (Missourian).

The discovery of oil in in Russell County, miles northwest of the nearest field, brought oil activity in western Kansas. Since then, more than 7, oil and gas fields have been discovered in Kansas, many along a subsurface geologic structure called the Central Kansas Uplift that runs northwest to southeast across the center of the state.   The new regional oil and gas fields maps and statewide map are available from the Kansas Geological Survey, Constant Ave., Lawrence, KS (phone ) and at W. Monroe St., Wichita, KS (phone ).

Armbrust, Jr., P.K. Kuroda, On the Isotopic constitution of Radium (Ra/Ra and Ra/Ra). This source must remain speculative for now as there are no appropriate samples presently available from this area although high radioactivity (presumably radium) has been reported from oil-field wells further west in Kansas (Gott and Hill, ) and in Oklahoma (Bloch, ).

radioactive scale from oil-field equipment have documented that barite is the primary host of oil-field NORM and that the radioactivity is from isotopes of radium and their decay products. The two radium isotopes present in produced water and barite scale are Ra (half-life.

APPENDIX Samples of water from three oil fields in Kansas, located from 32 to 40 km west of Baxter Springs, Kansas (sites ) have recently been ana- lyzed by the author for uranium isotopes. The waters were produced from the Cambro-Ordovician formations in the section.

Inworkers struck oil at a well in Butler County, Kansas, called Stapleton #1. Over the next several years, civilian and military demand for oil transformed what had once been the farm towns of Augusta, Towanda, and El Dorado (pronounced El Dor-AY-do in local parlance) into petroleum communities.

Risk-taking entrepreneurs supported drilling and exploration that brought wealth to some and. - Oil field work involves long hours and back-breaking work. It also involves radioactive materials in many ways, including natural radioactivity and man-made radionuclides used in a number of specific and useful ways.

The sorption ofRa from oil-production brine by soils and sediments was investigated. Sorption was rapid, and the percentage sorbed increased with brine dilution. Greatest removals ofRa from sediments in the laboratory occurred with alkaline DTPA, HCl, and BaCl2, with lesser removals using CaCl2 and NaCl solutions.

Digestion of sediments with NaOCl indicates that most of the native and. The Kansas Geological Survey's interactive map allows you to view a large amount of information on oil and gas resources and activity in Kansas.

Tenth, Eleventh, Twelfth, Thirteenth, Fourteenth, Fifteenth, and Sixteenth Census of the United States (Population) for the years, However, the present high price of crude oil and the prospect of still higher prices, which results from the increasing demand for petroleum products and the diminishing reserve in other fields, is bringing renewed activity to the fields of Wilson County and adjacent parts of the southeast Kansas oil fields.

In Kansas, a common TENORM issue is from oil and gas field pipe that is recycled as scrap metal. The pipes are lined with scale that contain radium Some pipes contain enough radium to alarm radiation detectors at scrap yards and steel mills.

TENORM issues. Rich helium and nitrogen gas occurs in several fields in southeastern Kansas, in Vinton and Meigs counties, Ohio, in southeastern Colorado, in the Texas Panhandle, and eastern Utah.

The percentage of helium in the richest gases ranges between and per cent. The age of the helium gas-producing formations ranges from Cambrian to Tertiary. Some radioactivity may by brought to the surface at the well head during testing to determine the injection profile and location of fractures.
