Σελίδα 317 - ... and for ice making. In 1902 or 1903 a well was drilled on the Swiver property, about 2 miles north of Wartrace, on the dirt road to Bellbuckle. This well is reported to have been drilled to a depth of 1,800 to 2,000 feet, but no data relative to it could be obtained. In 1904 or 1905 a well was also drilled for oil on the Matthew Skeen farm, about i mile north of Bellbuckle. This well is said to have been put down to a depth of 1,500 feet, but nothing is known of the results obtained. In 1906...
Σελίδα 13 - This had been the situation for many years, as gas pumps have constantly been in operation in that district since 1869. New wells are occasionally drilled on this exhausted belt, and it invariably happens that when the oil sand is pierced, a current of air commences to whistle down the hole, nor can oil be obtained until the well mouth is closed and a gas pump put in operation. After a few days testing, oil begins to appear, and the production frequently runs from 15 to 20 barrels a day.
Σελίδα 117 - ... 358. Summary sketch of the formations exhibited in the Vertical Section, Plate XI. This generalized section extends from the surface rocks- in the Upper Barren Coal series of Greene county, Pa., down to the Corniferous limestone the (Canadian oil rock) and will enable any one to distinguish and locate the several oil horizons thus far discovered and profitably worked in these measures. GROUP No. 1. Upper Barren Coal Measures, B. — "Greene county group.
Σελίδα 24 - I am no geologist if it be true that the manufacture of oil in the laboratory of nature is still going on at the hundredth or the thousandth part of the rate of its exhaustion. And the science of geology may as well be abandoned as a guide if events prove that such a production of oil in Western Pennsylvania as our statistics exhibit, can continue for successive generations. It cannot be. There is a limited amount. Our children will merely and with difficulty drain the dregs. I hold the same opinion...
Σελίδα 23 - ... be profitably drilled, and every year's unsuccessful prospecting outside of the productive belts and of deep drilling within them, makes the outlook for the discovery of new oil horizons less hopeful, that from this time forward we have no reasonable ground for expecting, or even hoping, that these oil fields will continue to supply the world with cheap light as they have in the past and that therefore it is wise to pause and consider how best to husband our remaining resources and make the most...
Σελίδα 95 - Ohio the series is somewhat complicated both in outcrop and under cover, but there are points enough here to afford means for safe identification in most instances. . . . (g) " The Berea grit is a representative oil rock. The presumption in regard to it, in any portion of the State in which it lies below the surface, is that oil, gas, or salt water, one or two or all, will be found in it in appreciable amount when it is reached by the drill. In a field of a few square miles it has been found to contain...
Σελίδα 13 - ... be adduced were it necessary. In a practical experience of twenty-three years in the oil regions I have never witnessed nor heard of a single circumstance to support it. The theory as applied to Pennsylvania oil and gas wells is delusive and untenable, and the cause of the great rock pressure witnessed must therefore be sought for in some other direction.
Σελίδα 17 - Lyons Run, August 2, 1884.— 13. Hukill, No. 3, McWilliams' farm, Lyons Run, November 1, 1884. — 14. Hostetter & Brown, No. 3, Stewart farm, Murrysville, December 20, 1884. "At that time Nos.
Σελίδα 24 - I take this opportunity to express my opinion in the strongest terms, that the amazing exhibition of oil which has characterized the last twenty, and will probably characterize the next ten or twenty years, is nevertheless, not only geologically but historically, a temporary and vanishing phenomenon — one which young men will live to see come to its natural end.
Σελίδα 129 - But when the supposed horizon of the sand is reached and the evidences of its presence do not appear as anticipated, he discovers too late that he has nothing to check by, to ascertain whether the oil rock is actually wanting or only so changed in character as to be scarcely recognizable, or whether there may not have been some mistake in calculating its position in the well. Thus it often happens that wells of this class are abandoned, after drilling in doubt for a few days, without having been...
