Four new oil-producing areas and two new gas-producing areas were discovered in East Texas in 1943. Of the new oil areas, two produced from the Paluxy formation, one from the Pettit zone, and one from both the Rodessa and Pettit zones of the lower Glen Rose formation. One of the new gas areas produced from the Woodbine, the other from the Pettit zone of the lower Glen Rose. Exploratory drilling in East Texas was characterized in general by deeper drilling than in the past, most of the important tests having the Paluxy, lower Glen Rose, Travis Peak, and Smackover formations as their objectives.
