Title: The Edgerly Oil Field, Louisiana

Author(s): H. E. Minor


The Edgerly oil field is located in the southwestern part of Louisiana in a topographically featureless part of the Gulf Coastal plain. Exploration for oil was based on gas seepages, and though a total production of more than 55,000 barrels of oil per acre has been obtained from the field, there is no indication of a salt dome other than the local steep dips away from the field. No salt, gypsum, or cap rock has been encountered in any well. There are four main producing sands, at average depths, respectively, of 2,700, 2,900, 3,000, and 3,100 feet.
