Nine Operators Today Today, said Mr. Beagle, there are nine operators in Rangely which have completed about 50 flowing wells with an average production of 800 barrels of oil a day. The present daily allowable is 350 barrels a day per well. There are approximately 25 drilling wells. Average depth of a Rangely well is about 6400 feet, with an average of 600 feet of casing set, Mr. Beagle estimated. The producing formation is hard, fine, grain sand with broken short shale .sections known as the Weber sand. The oil is a paraffin base crude of about 30 degrees gravity. . . Wells in the eastern part of the 35-60.000 productive acre field must be shot. To date there is one small refinery in the field, that of the Raven 011 & Refining Co., which handles only oil from the shallow shale wells Which drill to a maximum of 1500 feet.
