Discovery of the Conroe oil field in 1932 has brought into prominence the Cockfield as an oil-producing horizon in the Gulf Coast area. The various oil-producing horizons of the Gulf Coast are reviewed and discussed. Typical sections of several of the Gulf Coast oil fields are shown to indicate the position of the oil-producing sands. The possibility of production from deeper horizons in the Cook Mountain and Mount Selman formations is pointed out.
