Title: Discoveries and Additions to Oil Reserves in California During 1937

Author(s): Harold W. Hoots (2)


Nine new fields, new zones in three fields, and one geological extension of an older field, were discovered in California during 1937. These discoveries and normal extensions of existing fields added an estimated 322 million barrels to the state's reserve oil supply. Success in adding to reserves a larger quantity of oil than was produced during the year, for the first time in 6 years, is due to greater and more effective geological exploration and to more intensive and deeper wildcat drilling.
