Arizona is not a big oil and gas producer, so permits for any new wells is of interest. The Arizona Oil and Gas Conservation Commission has issued three permits recently.
Kinder Morgan CO2 Company received a permit for the 11-12-29 well in the St. Johns field in Apache County in east central Arizona to continue the evaluation of the CO2 and helium potential.
Permits for two wildcat oil exploration wells were issued to Gusher State LLC for the Gusher State 1-22 and 2-22 wells in Cochise County, in southern Arizona. Each have proposed depths of 5,000 feet. [Right, previously drilled wells in Arizona. Credit, AZGS]
