Title: Occurrence of Oil in Igneous Rocks of Cuba

Author(s): J. Whitney Lewis (2)


The seepages of oil, the asphalt deposits, and the two oil fields, Bacuranao and Motembo, are described with special reference to the association of oil and asphalt with igneous rocks. Production in both oil fields is from serpentine and no commercial production has been found in sedimentary rocks. It is estimated that more than 200,000,000 barrels of asphaltic oil was required to form the asphalt deposits and seepages.
