...DONALD C. BARTON ABSTRACT The Esperson salt dome was discovered in a torsion-balance survey made by the Union Exploration Company late in 1928. The discovery well of the oil field on the dome was completed in the summer of 1929. The torsion-balance survey showed the presence of (1) a large minimum...

... Abstract The Esperson dome is one of the early deep-seated salt domes discovered as a direct result of geophysical work. In 1928 it was found by torsion-balance exploration. In 1929 oil was discovered. Prior to March 1, 1934, forty-three wells were completed, including thirty-five oil wells...

There is, therefore, a faint theoretical possibility of a slight relation between salt domes and the formation of petroleum. But at a dome such as Esperson, Liberty County...

In the latitude of Houston in southeast Texas, the top of the Jackson lies at a depth of 5,000-5,500 feet on the upper flank of the Esperson dome, and dips rapidly; its depth at a distance from a salt...

The intrusion of the salt plug through the surrounding formations is shown on the northwest-southeast cross section in Figure 3 , with its relation to the uplifts at Humble, Esperson, and Lost Lake domes. The total production for the year 1929 was 4,487,000 barrels. Nearly all of this was produced from...

...% of the 1969 total. Successful completions also decreased slightly from 76% in 1969 to 73% in 1970. A sharp decrease in the development drilling program at Esperson dome accounted for much of the overall decline. Salt domes once again constituted the majority of the most active fields, but several non-salt...

... the influence of faulting, regardless of the proximity of piercement domes. There are other views to the effect that instability of margins of the rim synclines of the piercement domes has caused wrinkles and faults, and they may, therefore, be thought of as incipient salt uplifts. On the basis of this theory...
