Title: Discoveries in California in 1936

Author(s): M. G. Edwards (2)


Discoveries of supplies of oil and gas in California during 1936 exceeded those of any previous year since 1931. Excluding deep-zone developments, which were an important source of new supply in 1931, discoveries of fields in 1936 exceeded in importance those of any year since 1928, the year in which the Kettleman Hills-North Dome and Elwood fields were discovered. Five new oil fields, two new gas fields, and a number of extensions to known fields are credited to the year 1936. The first oil-field discoveries in California by geophysical methods occurred in this year.
