Title: Resume of Discoveries and Developments in Northeastern Texas in 1928

Author(s): Sidney A. Judson (2)


Operations in northeastern Texas in 1928 were centered principally in the deepest part of the northeastern Texas geosyncline occupied by the interior salt domes.

Boggy Creek salt dome produced 332,000 barrels of oil from eleven wells. The production came from the Woodbine sand flanking the salt dome. This is the first interior salt dome in Texas to produce oil in large quantities.

Anhydrite cap rock or salt was discovered by drilling at shallow depths at East Tyler, Whitehouse, and Oakwood, proving salt-dome formation. These domes had been located during 1927 by the seismograph.

Several wildcats were drilled on known domes and other structures, but in general the year was one of little activity with the exception of Boggy Creek.

The Gulf Production Company obtained a 154-barrel well in a wildcat test in northeast Shelby County.
