Albuquerque Morning Journal (Newspaper) - January 16, 1926, Albuquerque, New Mexico Nary in 1926albuquerque morning journal duct10n of san Juan Basin s in Wells Over 12,000 barrels Sand s depth 700 to 2,000 feet continued from Page Ona Vered by s. C. Munoz to focus attention of Oil men in this a tory. Associated with the my. Interests in the development of Rattlesnake dome is the cont inti Oil company whose latest Chi no it proved to be better in 2,500 barrels at less than Soo i in depth making it the biggest i in production Ever discovered i this depth on this continent As will As eng of the highest Gravity a a haps in Tho world.

In which the dip from All direct Iona to a Imon Center in the Dearest part Hie Basin which lies at a Point or the fan Juan River close to Colorado line. In the Central part of the Basin him cretaceous rocks Are covered into a thin Mantle of eocene tertiary deposits which lie horizontal mid hide the cretaceous Roks from v$9w. These deposits w a re Laid Dow n after tile close of the Kooky Llo Untsain revolution and were therefore not subject to folding g the so called Hogback or ridges which surround the West North mid East rim of the Basin Are due to the steeply dipping Trunka Teil cd a of resistant Sandstone largely of the Mesa verde group which a Vert the Manco shale in this Mea having a thickness of Over 1,100 feet the Manco Shales forming the outer rim or lip of the Basin. Tin be shades in Ninny pin Cis lie horizontal and in some instances show a reversal of dip away from Tho Basin thus forming structures in the shape of domes Anticline and terraces a Uch a the Hogback Rattlesnake Tocito table Mesa a to and Haystack domes and Tho Sangha Chromo Dulce and Durango anti a knit and Rainy structural conditions yet unmapped. Sit n Tho cretaceous Oil zone is at or near the Baas of the Manco Shalt which in this arca is 1,100 fact thick it is eely along Tho outer Edge or lip of the Basin that the Oil tearing Sand can be reached at a depth of 2,000 feet or less. While the so called Tocito Sand w i re it hrs to the surface on such structures As have been drilled in this Field so far a been Ungro Obj Ivetti j it May be found to con Tam ii go pools of Oil where it is covered by sufficient impervious material to retain the Odas this Sand c relate with Hie Wall Crook r is of Wyoming and Mon i a and the highly productive a.

Operators Here say to at an 800-foot Hole can be trilled tor about $4,500, contracts Ere taken at $4 per foot. Two strings of casing Are All that Are required the second string being used for production. The ground is easily worked and after pudding in the shallow Well Are drilled in rapid time. The one Railroad serving this Section of the state in the narrow gauge line of the d. A r. G. W., running South from Durango colo., a distance of 60 Miles. Another narrow gauge runs from the latter Point East to Alamosa colo., where it connects with a Standard gauge Road. The other outlet is by Highway to Gallup a distance of 120 mile connecting with the main line of the Santa be Railroad. Operators use both North and South present outlets. The Well Road building into the Valley at the present time will materially reduce transportation costs a Well As give the Oil a cheaper outlet should production exceed the capacity of the pipe line promised by the Munoz continent in interests by april i. Geologists and scouts making Farmington their Headquarters arc Here in great numbers mapping and checking the numerous structures found in the Basin. From present indication the Field will be composed of both members of Tho Standard Oil group As Well As scores of Independent operators. The town of Farmington is taking on the airs of a real Oil Boom City. Hundreds of Psolla come in weekly by stage and train intent on becoming interested in the town and Fields. The Boom can he Felt All the Way up the Valley from As Tec to Durango. There is a Peculiar unanimity of interest shown by All the towns and when a worthy project to further the interests of this Section of the state is presented Aztec and Durango join with Farmington to put it across. Aztec is a car the Huntington Park Well that is producing such High Grade Oil and has created a stir in the Blanco District about 20 Miles to t e East. The Huntington Park Well is below 1,600 feet and its initial production was around 32 barrels it is now said to be doing about six barrels though Little Effort is being made at this time to bring tile Oil above ground on account of shortage of storage. Several new tests Are getting ready to Spud in in that Section and this summer it promises to be one of the Busy spot of the Basin.

It was the intention of Thia company to Drill to the new deep pay Sand found at 5,700 feet but at a depth of 2,515 the Hole filled so rapidly with fluid that it was impossible to Drill deeper.

Principal companies operating in the Field Are Flynn Welch and Yates Ohio Oil co., Maljamar Oil and Gas corp., twin lakes Oil co., dance Ger Oil and refining co., Snowden and me Sweeney dome Oil co., v. K. F. Co., pie her Oil Cooil co and Frontier Petroleum co. While the proved area does not approach the Gusher Type of Well so often found in Tho larger Fields this territory has proved to be a Bonanza to the operator with limited finances and gives every evidence that the Oil will not play out in a Day but is of a permanent nature inasmuch As the Oil is found i the Sand and not in the Lime. Present prospects indicate however that a prolific Sandy Lime arca even better than the Sand found in Wells around 2,000 feet May a opened up. But whether or not the present trend develops the Sandy Lime area the first pay found still offers an unusually attractive Prospect for Tho Small operator. Out Brill cheaply one of Tho principal drawing cards for the Field has been the ease with which a Well May be drilled because of the formation usually found a Well May a drilled to the first pay level with much Lese expense than in Many other Fields. One of the Pioneer producers was drilled to the 2,000 foot Sand with a shudder. Estimated costs of completed Wells Range from $9,000 to $16,000. Tha average Gravity of the Oil which is a paraffin base is 37.6 at the Well and 36.5 at the pipe line a distillation teat at the Rio Grande refining co. Plant St Elpaso shows the Artesia crude to yield 35 per cent gasoline. To per cent kerosene to per cent Gas Oil 43 per cent fuel and 2 per cent loss. A Flat Price of $1,35 a barrel is now Beng paid for the production by both the Ohio Oil co. And the Continental Oil co. Geologically the Artesia area has been somewhat difficult to work because of the level nature of the country the surface formations of which Are chiefly Limestone Gypsum Grey and red Sandstone and red shale of the Chupa dem formation of the permian age. Tim Brown Well in . 15-16-26, near Dayton was the Pioneer of the Artesia Field. It was started late in 1906 and taken Over and completed by Charles s. Brown of Oklahoma City. It yielded As much As 40 barrels a Day from an Oil Sand found Between 811 and 926 feet. In search of a greater Oil flow it a drilled into Sulphur water at 950. While it is still flowing Sulphur water it occasionally makes a big Oil flow. Martin Yates Tho Man who refused to be discouraged by defeat is Given most of Tho credit for Tho development of Tho Artesia Field. In 1906. To began working for Tho development of Tho Arthala area ant has kept ceaselessly at it since that Day. Tho Field stands today a Monument to hit perseverance.
