Title: Developments in South Texas in 1957

Author(s): W. J. Hendy (2), W. D. Dobbins (3), J. H. Morren (4)


With drilling in South Texas in 1957 down 20% from the record activity in 1956, there were few developments considered important. Wildcat drilling was down 13% and development drilling was down 23%. However, gas and gas-condensate completions were up 20% over the 1956 total. The 93 discoveries were only one less than in 1956. As yet none of the new discoveries has been developed enough to be classified as to importance. Extensions and new-pool discoveries added the major share to new reserves. Both oil and gas production were down in South Texas. Geophysical activity was down slightly from the 1956 total; however, a considerable increase occurred in the Jurassic, Cretaceous, and lower Eocene trends. Subsurface information appears to have been used more extensively in expl ration.
