A revival of drilling activity is restarting one of Oklahoma's oldest oil fields, promising to flood billions of dollars of investment into southeast Oklahoma.

Central and northwest Oklahoma's SCOOP and STACK fields have attracted much attention from oil producers, service companies and suppliers in recent years. But growing interest — and investment money — is flowing into southeast Oklahoma's Arkoma Basin.

Edmond-based Tall Oak Midstream III in March said it will build an 80-mile pipeline to transport dry natural gas from its planned processing plant in Hughes County to an interstate pipeline that will carry it to market along the Gulf Coast.
