Title: Resume of Development in East Texas During 1937

Author(s): E. A. Wendlandt (2), C. L. Herold (3)


Three new oil-producing areas and three new gas and gas-distillate areas were discovered in East Texas during 1937. Important areal extensions were added to two fields, and deep tests were drilled in several fields. Most of the important exploratory wells were directed to the Paluxy, lower Glen Rose, and Travis Peak formations (Lower Cretaceous). Several of the deeper tests added materially to knowledge of the Trinity and pre-Trinity (?) stratigraphy of the East Texas basin, some penetrating beds heretofore unknown in this area.
