Same equipment used In the abandoned well will bo employed at tho new location. The recently opened Ten Section area already Is beginning to take on the appearance of nn oil field, Standard OH Company having begun Its test project tltls week to add a third lighted rig to the two Hhell derricks. Tho Standard well is going down on tho section Just cast of tho proposed Oil wildcat. ' Abandonment of the Rio Bravo test ended ono of the most exhaustive attempts yet made for oil production on tho valley floor. A few thin streaks of oil sand encountered on tho way down wore deemed Insufficient to warrant setting casing. Another abandonment this week, Standard Oil Company's No. 9 on Marlcopa Flat, marked termination of a drilling' campaign which extended over a period of several months following opening of a rich lense (stet) by Gibson Oil Company. The Standard project was at tho south- cast end of tho pool, where Gibson's last completion came In for only 100 barrels dally and later declined to 30.

The new test Is located a quarter of a mile northeast of the Seven Spot well, which Is being reconditioned. Installation of tho heaviest rig In the Frultvale field Is held Indicative of plans by Magnet Oil Company for a deep test In this area. The big outfit Is set up at Magnet's Seymour No. 3, located three-fourths of a mile northwest of tho only other deep test In tho field. This earlier wall was drilled by Western Gulf to almost | 8000 feet without finding anything below present productive formations at around 3600 feet. Mohawk Oil Company's outpost KCL. 23-3 has been begun as an attempt to extend tho northeastern part of the Frultvale tlold two locations north of present limits. L. W.
