The Jennings oil field was one of the earliest oil fields of the first class on the Gulf Coast. It is on a dome in Tertiary sediments. Although the salt has not been drilled into, limestone which has never been drilled through and which resembles cap rock underlies the main part of the field, and is taken to indicate the presence of a salt dome. There is a surface mound that is probably the remnant of a salt dome mound and a depression that in part is probably a “central depression.” The Jennings field has been one of the most prolific of the Gulf Coast oil fields, and had many long-lived wells with enormous total production.
