Oklahoma Fault Database

An interpreted fault map has been compiled from oil and gas industry data and published literature and published as an Open-File Report (OF2-2016). Most of the faults from the published literature are documented in this Open-File Report and in the supplement to Open-File Report 3-2015. This map is compiled from the Oklahoma Fault Database, which continues to be updated as additional fault information is available. The faults shown here represent one interpretation of all the faults in the Oklahoma Fault Database being compiled by the OGS.
