Title: Developments in East Texas during 1941: ABSTRACT

Author(s): F. R. Denton, R. M. Trowbridge

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The marked increase in exploratory tests in East Texas during 1941 resulted in the discovery of three oil fields. Two of these fields are producing from the Woodbine formation and one from the Rodessa zone of the lower Glen Rose formation.

In the Hawkins field, which was the major 1940 discovery, a rapid development program took place and 243 oil wells, 3 gas wells, and 8 dry holes were drilled.

The number of completions in other proved fields exceeded that of 1940.
