Stratigraphic range: Oxfordian
Wells reporting Smackover Formation tops are indicated by a black point, and extend from Texas to Florida. Formation top depths measured in 6,764 wells range from 1,394 to 23,554 feet.
The Smackover Formation has been a prolific source of petroleum. The 1922 discovery of the Smackover oil field, after which the Smackover Formation is named, resulted in a sizeable oil boom in southern Arkansas.
