Abstract

More wells were drilled in 1960 than 1959. Four major fields were added to the area. There were 22 new-field discoveries: 5 in the Upper Cretaceous, 9 in the Lower Cretaceous, and 8 in the Jurassic. New-pool discoveries and field extensions numbered 43. Total number of wells increased by 29 from 1959. There were 365 exploratory tests drilled, of which 13.4% were successfully completed. Geophysical activity totaled 779 crew-weeks, an increase of 78 crew-weeks from 1959, due mainly to increased Jurassic interest. Core-drill activity totaled 75 crew-weeks, an increase of 22 crew-weeks over the previous year.
