Title: Case History of Wild Goose Gas Field, Butte County, California.: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Wallace L. Matjasic

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The discovery well of the Wild Goose gas field was drilled and completed in 1951 on a structure located by a reflection seismograph survey conducted in 1950. An additional seismograph survey was made subsequent to discovery to define better the structure for future development. Two seismic cross sections and a contour map based on the original reflection data are shown, along with an aeromagnetic map which was made after the discovery.

The producing sands are in an interval between the Forbes shale of upper Cretaceous age and the overlying Capay shale of Eocene age.
