Title: Activities in South Texas, 1937-1938

Author(s): Stuart Mossom (2)


There were 46 new producing areas opened in South Texas during 1937, and 68 new productive horizons in old producing fields were encountered. The Frio and Jackson formations and most of the newer sands found in old producing areas accounted for most of the discoveries. Important fields discovered during 1937 are North Sweden in east-central Duval County; Ezzell in northeastern McMullen County; Killam-Oilton in Webb County; South Burnell in Bee County; Luby in Nueces County; and East Premont in Jim Wells County. There is a definite trend toward deeper drilling in the South Texas district, nearly half of the discoveries of this year being below 5,000 feet. The Frio section is becoming increasingly important as an objective in wildcatting.
