The wildcat found the new reserves almost two miles southwest of the Langer oil field (1974) where production began from the Osage formation until Cherokee oil was later discovered in the field in 2005. The Langer pool has produced nearly 218,000 bbls of oil to date. L.D.

The new wildcat discovery well was drilled to a total depth of 7050 ft at site located seven miles west of Ashland, KS. Crude oil is being recovered from the Lansing - Kansas City formations. Details remain confidential currently. Other closest known production lies nearly three miles to the northwest in the Red Cliff oil field (1987), which produced around 7,700 bbls of oil from the Viola formation over a five-year period before being abandoned. ----------Stelbar Oil Corporation, Wichita (KS), is producing oil from the Marmaton formation at the #1-2 Eaton in Scott County. The wildcat discovery well opens the new Range Rider oil field about three miles south and four miles east of Scott City, KS.
