Key Projects

Norstar Petroleum Inc. currently operates over 100 oil and gas wells in Kansas. We also hold non-operated interests in Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. We welcome independent geologists and producers to contact us regarding business opportunities, as we seek a balance between operated and non-operated properties, as well as a balance between oil and gas. 

Nebraska Panhandle

Norstar’s most recent project is located in the panhandle of Nebraska. Norstar has entered into an agreement to explore and develop prospects generated by a third-party geologist familiar with the area. Norstar is actively leasing and marketing its prospects to investors and uses 3D seismic to assess drilling opportunities. This is an oil prone area with a large reserve potential.

Trego County Waterflood, Northwest Kansas

In 2014, Norstar was invited to bid for operations of a field located in Trego County, Kansas. The company was successful and, as a result, acquired a 12% working interest in 14 Cherokee wells in need of a waterflood study. Following a reservoir engineering analysis, a flood was implemented in 2016. As a response to select workovers and water injection, production has increased from 23 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) to over 70 BOPD. In 2018, Norstar acquired a similar interest in 18 wells immediately adjacent to its current flood and plans to implement more waterfloods during the next few years.

Thomas County, Northwest Kansas

Norstar leased about 20,000 acres in Thomas County and continues to explore further ideas in the area. The company utilized 3D seismic to drill 23 wells since 2011, with better than a 60% success ratio.  Combined, Norstar and C.H. Todd own around 30% of the working interest in these oil wells.

Beauchamp Project, Southwest Kansas

An initial acquisition of approximately 20 wells, in 1995 from multiple parties, resulted in the unitization and waterflood of the Beauchamp SW Keyes Morrow Unit. C.H. Todd operated the Beauchamp Unit from 2/1/2000 until 12/1/2014, when Norstar took over operations. C.H. Todd performed a numerical simulation study on the unit which shows great remaining potential. Combined, Norstar and C.H. Todd own close to 75% of the working interest in the unit wells. The area encompasses both oil and gas production.

Domby Project, Oklahoma Panhandle

Originally acquired in 1991, as a non-operated project, Norstar has participated in about 25 wells, re-

completed and/or drilled, for Chester, Douglas, and Chase formations by multiple operators.  Norstar's working interest averages around 7.5%.

Cherokee Sandstone Exploration, Central Kansas

Norstar operates about 9 Cherokee sandstone wells in Ness and Hodgeman Counties. Combined, Norstar and C.H. Todd own from 27% to 35% working interest in these wells, and benefits from its own salt water disposal facility.
