The Batson oil field, which has produced 32,000,000 barrels of oil, is underlaid by an elliptical anhydrite-capped salt plug, 2 miles long and 1½ miles wide. The formations encountered are Pleistocene to Oligocene. Most of the production comes from the cap rock and Oligocene formations. The field is now (1925) producing 1,400 barrels per day from 400 wells. Production curves, contours on the cap rock and cross-sections are shown.
