GailsPlenilfuI, Blf Aronmenl h How io Utilize It WTtttAMSON Texas,- Feb. 23— (Xp)— Almost everybody agrees that Amer- lca'6 tfast reserves of natural gas, variously estimated at between 60 and 150 trillion cutic feet, ought to be 1 ifeeH to bring about the greatest benefit to the greatest possible number of people. Bfflt there is^wldesprend and some- tihles heated oifference of opinion as to how that end can be achieved. . Powers Questioned . When gas moves from one state ttt another it comes under control Of the Federal Power commission. That agency scheduled an elaborate series of hearings to find out What changes, if any, congress should make in the present natural gas act. At these hearings the differences of. Opinion about governing the gas industry came sharply into focus. •ftie PPC, at its Houston hearing. hear^" Texas officials and industry representatives argue that federal control should not be broadened in any way. On the other side of tho whole controversy were the coal, railroad and allied union interests affected by the question of gas. These interests put in no direct testimony at the Houston hearing. But their position was made clear by the questions their counsel put to witnesses on cross-examination. Coal-Unlon-RR Stand Thus interpreted, the coal, railroad, and. related union people tclieve: 1. That gas is a superior fuel and should be designated for superior uses, such as heating homes. 2. That gas reserves may not be sufficient to last very long if the commodity is extensively exported for such inferior uses as burning under boilers. 3. That Texas should insure Us Continued On Pape 6 Phillip.

It was stated that about 56 of the 75 input wells which will inject gas into the field had been tested by the railroad commission, reported Fred Neslage, pool engineer. Tritial Input volumes, the rate at which gas would be injected into the reservoir by each input well, were discussed. The committee recommended to the directors of A. J. Beagle, manager of the Rock Glycerin Co., which has its main office in Pampa, has been spending about half his time since early last summer in the newly developed Bangely oil field, the Shangri- La of XT. S. fields, located in northwestern Calorado. His company has established an office in Rangely, offering oil well shooting service. Rangely is considered by some oilmen as probably the greatest field ever 10 be discovered in the States. Others are more conservative, estimating it to be the greatest since Pearl Harbor.

The turnip was first cultivated in .England in 1724. Approximately five per cent of; the crude oil refined in the United States is made into kerosene. each of the 75 wells. About half of 'the lease pipelines to be laid by operators have been completed. Lease pipelines connect each of the 99 individual leases (955 producing wells) with the main repressuring system. The entire project requires about 40 miles of pipeline. Other miscellaneous procedures involved in the project were discussed. Engineers who attended the Tuesday meeting were Max Harbison, Kewaunec Oil Co.; Dallas Bowsher, Harry J. Gibbons, L. Station and M. N. 'Osborn, Skelly Oi! Co.; James Massa, Sloan Oil and Gas Co.; P.

The average cost of drilling oil wells has increased more than one- third from the prewar price. companies started coming into the field particularly after the Utah Oil At Refining Co. laid a 10-inch pipeline over a 200-mile stretch from the field to another line in southern Wyoming. It was completed and opened last September. Transportation Difficulties Before the pipeline was laid and production had to be transported a distance of 105 miles over mountain roads to Craig, the nearest rail center to the field. All equipment and materials must still be transported over the winding mountain reads from Craig. Air transport service is being provided oilmen and their families for shopping in nearby towns. Colorful History The history of Rangely is as fascinating as any pioneer story. One oilman has related how the first deep test made in Rangely blew out the s'.ring of 10-inch casing with the blowing-in of a 100 million foot gas well. Lightning struck the gas, causing flames 1000 feet high which burned for "40 days and 40 niehts." Indians on the Uto reservation about 80 miles away got ready for ^the "Great Battle," beat their war drums and got out iheir war paint, soon finding it to be a false alarm. Stories vary, but the above sounds best. After a bit of activity in the basin Rangely was forgotten in favor of the discovery of the East Texas oil field. Independent Sees the Light In 1932 an independent operator from California who had heard about Rangely went up to look at }t for himself. He saw in the reflections of light the outline of rim rocks, and the greatest of all structures to be found in the States. Interest in Rangely was revived. U. S. geologists drew up a "pretty map."
