Stephens County is the epicenter of the "SCOOP" play ("South Central Oklahoma Oilbearing Province"). As you show, lots of activity, even more to come. Lots of pipelines and compressor stations yet to come.

They are using existing refineries instead of new ones for several reasons. It takes a long time to build new ones, and the old ones are tied in to the product distribution grid. However, SCOOP crude, Miss Lime crude, and Bakken oil are very "light" and not suited to existing refineries which were designed for heavy sour crude from overseas. It will be interesting to see where it will all shake out.
