Abstract

The “Turkey Mountain lime” consists of three members: an upper porous, a middle cherty gray, and a lower soft white. The three together average about 60 feet in thickness. Because of the unconformity at the top the whole section is seldom found.

Production from this lime declines rapidly in the initial stage, but generally declines slowly in the settled stage. The ultimate yield is about 8,000 barrels per acre. Production conforms to anticlinal structure and there is no record of synclinal producing wells. The eroded Turkey Mountain surface is undoubtedly the reservoir of many “Wilcox” oil fields. The source of the oil is probably the black and green shales above the “Hominy” sand or the “Turkey Mountain lime” itself.
