Open File Report OF1‐2012
Geologic Report: Standard Oil Product Company Weyerhaeuser #1-22, Broken Bow Uplift, Oklahoma

Released through the generosity of Weyerhaeuser
Company and the cooperation of consulting
geologist Michael D. Allison, this formerly proprietary report
on one of the most important wells
ever drilled in the Ouachita Mountains of
Oklahoma – the Standard Oil Production
Company (SOPC) 1-22 Weyerhaeuser is available online.
Spudded in 1987 and located on
the crest of the Broken Bow Uplift more
than 50 mi south of the thrust front of the
Ouachita tectonic belt (Figure 1), the 1-22
Weyerhaeuser TD’d at almost 19,000 ft
and fortunately, Weyerhaeuser elected to
thoroughly study all the cuttings from surface
to TD and all the cores that were cut.

The well is important for a number of reasons, but
none more so than it drilled through the
basal decollement of the fold-and-thrust
belt into foreland facies strata at about
11,750 ft and again at 13,400 ft. This well
is therefore critical for all modern tectonic
interpretations of the Ouachita Mountains
(e.g., Arbenz, 2008).
