The chairman of the Kansas Independent Oil and Gas Association says that oil and gas drilling in south central Kansas has become "somewhat frenetic." Dwight Keen says that new approaches to oil and gas drilling are allowing access to resources that until recently had been difficult...and therefore not tap.

 Keen says the counties in southern Kansas with the most activity right now are Comanche (kuh-MAN-chee), Barber and Harper.
