..., and can not be correlated from well to well, rarely even in the case of two adjoining wells. The Spindletop field has been an extremely prolific producer. The old cap-rock area has produced approximately 50 million barrels of oil and the new flank area through 1936 has produced approximately 75 million...

... a small percentage from limited sand development. Oil activity on salt-dome structures in the Frio trend dates from the founding of the present oil industry with the discovery of oil at Spindletop and Jennings in 1901. Since that time, the oil industry has discovered approximately 455 fields in Texas...

...Donald C. Barton Abstract Prospecting started at West Columbia shortly after the discovery of the Spindletop field. The early tests were shallow, but encountered small amounts of oil. The old or Southeast field was not brought in until 1918 and the late spring of 1920 was at the crest of its...

Part of the similarity in pattern between crude oils of adjacent ages is the effect of persistence of similarity of source conditions over...
