The Welsh oil field seems probably to be of the Goose Creek or non-salt-dome type of Gulf Coast oil field. The beds are relatively flat over the field, but dip sharply to the southwest in the southwest quadrant. Small production was developed from the Pliocene, but failed after several years, so that today there is no production at Welsh. The oil was of low gravity, 11° to 19° Baume, but had especially high fire and flash points and a viscosity that made it especially desirable for car-journal oil. The field has some possibilities for discovery of deeper productive sands.
