ABSTRACT

The discovery of oil at Urania is of two-fold importance, (i) because of the struc-tural relationship with the Angelina-Caldwell monoclinal flexure and (2) because it is the first production of oil from beds of Tertiary age in northern Louisiana. This dis-covery led to an extensive drilling program along the Angelina-Caldwell flexure during the year 1926 when 225 wildcat wells were drilled. No new oil production was found but the Richland gas field was opened as the indirect result of this drilling program.
