Iowa drilling activity during 1975 consisted of injection-withdrawal wells drilled by a gas-storage company in Louisa County. In Kansas crude oil production during 1975 (59,106,104 bbl) dropped 4.2% below the 1974 level; natural gas production (850,786,261 Mcf) decreased 4.9%. Processing plants recovered 28.7 million bbl of natural gasoline and LPG and 773 MMcf of helium. Drilling increased 20% with 3,398 holes reported; 50% of the holes drilled solely for oil or gas were successful. In 1975, 91 holes were drilled in Missouri; 69 were shallow stratigraphic core tests and 15 were unsuccessful wildcat tests.
