ITFI owns the mineral rights for 481 acres in Woodward County, Oklahoma. The company currently has 2 wells that have been drilled. This acreage is currently being explored via a joint venture agreement with Chesapeake Exploration Limited, which is entitled to drill up to five wells. Chesapeake Exploration Limited is a subsidiary of Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK), which is the number one producer of natural gas in the nation and the most active driller of new wells in the U.S.
Woodward County, OK
Located in northwestern Oklahoma, Woodward County encompassed 1246.01 square miles of land and water area. Petroleum exploration and drilling first took place, unsuccessfully, in Woodward County in 1903 and 1905 and recurred in the World War I years, again with little result other than temporary booms for small towns. In November 1956, however, a producing gas well was brought into production west of Woodward. Oil production gave the economy a much-needed transfusion and boosted Woodward's population but not that of the county, which nevertheless declined overall to 14,383 in 1950 and 13,902 in 1960. Other industry included a plant that extracted iodine from oil-field brine, constructed north of Woodward in 1975, which soon provided nearly 14 percent of the nation's supply of that gas.
