Activity in the oil and gas industry in Kansas is on the rise, according to information from the Kansas Corporation Commission.
According to the KCC website, 611 intents to drill were filed in April. That’s a sharp increase from the 473 reported in March.
Just through the last 15 days, there have been 337 intents to drill filed, signifying that May could see increased numbers as well.
None of those most recent filings were in Sedgwick County, but other parts of south-central Kansas — where companies large and small have been exploring the Mississippian Lime oil play — have seen plenty of activity.
