Exact capacity of tho flow will not be determined for several days because wells In this portion of the field como In producing large amounts of wutcr and* clear up slowly. Output;is estimated at 300 barrels of 18 gravity oil and 700 barrels of water. This Issues from a depth of approximately 3400 feet, with pressures of 800 pounds on the casing and '100 on tho tubing. Number 2 will bo drilled one location east, on the same'lease. I,'. ,1. Slock Is president of'Oil Incorporated, and A. A.

The new project, Slevons A-fl, encountered pay dirt DO foot hlglior than In the Initial hole, Indicating two things: First, that the structure rises to the southland second, that the "dip" Is not very steop and the oil sand may extend over a wldo arep.. Shell stopped to sot easing before continuing far Into the productive formation. A a soon as the cement has hardened, the hole will bo taken on down In nn attempt to determine Just how thick the oil sandii are. The first Shell producer, It will he remembered, took In only SO feet of sand. IIB operators were, "playing safe" and wanted to take no chances on running Into possible water. Importance of the Ten Section field will ho tremendously enhanced If Shell rnn establish the existence of dc.epcr productive horizons' similar to thoso of Ket- lleiuan Hills imil North Hclrldge. Tho history of the development of the deep zone of this field has been one of steady drilling by «t most two or three companies, at no time taking on the aspect of the customary oil "boom." When, however, a well is completed mich as that j brought In by Helrldge Oil Company | this week, the field is bound to reach the headlines. Tho new producer, Uelrldgo Company's No. 18, Is credited with Initial output of 4*00 barrels dally of 30 gravity crude, with 20,000,000 cubic feet of BUS. Tho shade of distinction between a "wildcat" nnd an "outpost" well is frequently hard to discern. Ho that as It may, the Mountain View field seems to bo becoming; a favorite, drilling ground for tho "outposters." 1 logon Petroleum will attempt to Abandonment has been announced j , t * I'limmu <:v UA. «i. r. .*iv.*i imin, *-i at two wildcats In the valley north • ux, A. 11.
