The Refugio gas field was discovered in 1919. In July, 1928, the first oil well was completed and since that time Refugio has become one of the important Gulf Coastal fields. Water is commonly found above the oil and gas or between them. The variable porosity and overlapping of sand lenses are believed to account for this exceptional association of oil and water, and probably account for the erratic production and expensive development.
