(bûrkbərnĕt`), city (1990 pop. 10,145), Wichita co., N Tex., near the Okla. line; inc. 1913. A shipping center for livestock, cotton, and wheat, it also has oil wells and refineries. The area's first big gusher (1918) brought a boom that transformed the small community into a central oil town with a population that once exceeded 30,000.
