Title: Oil and Gas Developments in Tennessee in 1959

Author(s): H. C. Milhous (2)


The 72 test wells drilled in 1959 were almost three times the number completed in 1958. Four small oil wells were discovered and one new gas well was still shut in at the end of the year. Total exploratory footage was approximately 56,600 ft. New leasing activity is estimated to have doubled or tripled the acreage under lease a year ago.
