The Merigale-Paul field was discovered in December, 1944, by Bobby Manziel. As of July 1, 1949, the field had produced 3,269,813 barrels from 160 sub-Clarksville wells and 64,790 barrels from the single Woodbine producer.
The oil column is 235 feet; maximum net effective sand thickness is 38 feet, with the average about 16 feet.
Reservoir energy is gas expansion plus a probable limited water drive.
Structurally the Merigale-Paul field is a faulted monocline dipping southeastward, 550 feet to the mile. The trapping fault is a low-angle continental fault (average dip 32°), which parallels very closely the strike of the strata.
The eastern end of the field is at the intersection of the water table with the fault zone, and the western end is at the facies change of the sub-Clarksville sands into ash beds.
