GlobeGazette Farm Editor may not be gushing from the ground in North Iowa but the belief that it might led Hans Jesperson to invest in the possi bility Thats a fair amount of money to many of us but in the oil business where mil lions are spent yearly for prospecting alone it literally is a drop down the sludge pump To date that invest ment has given Jesperson a petroleum production counsel or from Omaha Neb a well which he says helps prove his claim that this area is a po tential commercial oil field contrary to what some experts think THIS PROOF comes in the forift of 48 barrels of oil pro duced by the well in wne 15 hour period Projecting this over a year such production could mean a net profit of a day or 000 a year This is based on about 36 barrels a day with each barrel being worth about Under the conditions of the lease contract which Jesperson has with farmowner George Niewald Jesperson would then realize a net profit of for the year with the remain ing going to Niewald Under the terms of the con tract Niewald receives 125 per cent of the net profits This well obviously would leave Jesperson far from a millionaire but itd be a tidy profit for such a relatively small operation Yet it also would explain why other oil men perhaps accustomed to fast and handsome dividends havent been attracted to the area as yet Theyre waiting do see what Jesperson comes up with Whats more these figures are based on longterm pro duction a situation which Jes person does not believe will occur with the present well He doesnt think it will con tinue to produce at this rate because it was not set up cor rectly originally and certain difficulties since have been encountered This does not discourage Jesperson In fact he has al ready made plans to drill an NORTH IOWA OIL Hans Jesper tanks handle the oil from a well drilled son petroleum production counselor by Jesperson Although he admits that from Omaha Neb stands in front of this may not be a commercial well an oil storage tank and an oil separa Jesperson is certain there is a commer tor tank on the George Niewald farm 10 miles southwest of Cresco The cial oil field in the area day slowly other test well in the Cresco area in the near future re gardless of the success of the present well Jesperson also says he plans to make tests in four otherlocations in Iowa One of the reasons for Jes persons confidence is the grade of oil obtained from the Cresco well He describes the oil as high grade with a 38 gravity The gravity number determines the price of oil Any oil with a gravity number of 32 or above is considered premium oil HOW DID Jesperson be come interested in the possi bility of oilin Iowa I actually became inter ested a little over a year ago when the company that start ed the drilling on the Niewald farm got in touch with me and told me the situation They had run into some trou ble and were planning to pull out and wanted to sell me the leases I liked the proposition and bought up the leases Since that time Jesperson acting as the head of two companies the Saratoga Development Corp and the H L Oil Co has bought oil and gas leases for nearly 24000 acres of Howard Coun ty land One of the reasons a cer tain amount of secrecy has enveloped the operation re cently Jesperson says is be cause he wanted to be able to obtain as many leases as possible This he continues prevents his competitors from riding free on the gravy train after weve spent time and money on development Jes person admits however that there are always people who wont sell their leases and ;
