THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIA!*- TPESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1908. Coalinga a Great Field That there is underlying the Coalinga oil district the enormous quantity of 2,825,000,000 barrels of oil, is the estimate made in the preliminary report on that district, prepared by Ralph Arnold and Robert Anderson of the United States geological survey, which has just been published In "Washington. The geologists warn against waste, however. "The outlook," says the report, "will continue to be bright for the development at Coalinga of one of the greatest fields in California if each and every operator will conserve to the utmost the wonderful supply of oil stored within the boundaries of the district, and by wise management aid in keeping it available. "Contrary to the belief of some persons, the underground resources of the earth are not Inexhaustible; yhen tho oil In any field IB once gone It will not bo replaced for many centur- u; it' ever." The Coallnsa district, as described In the report, takes in a strip o£ territory fifty miles long and fifteen In width, along the northeastern base of the Diablo range In western Fresno and Kings Counties. *•"' ''The proved productive territory," continues the report, "includes a band thirteen miles long by three miles wide, lying at the northern end, and a narrow strip along the southwestern I boundary. j "The oil originated in the organic I Tejon (bocene) shales and Is accumu- ,' lateil in Intcrbedded sands of the same formation and also in sands of the Vaciueros (lower mlocene, Santa Margarita, upper middle mlocene), and Jacalitos upper mlocene), formations, the Vaqueros being the principal producer. "The wells range In depth from 600 to more than 3,300 feet, and penetrate from 20 to more than 300 feet of productive sands. The product varies from a black oil of 14 or 15 degrees Baume to a greenish oil of 35 degrees Baume or better. Tho yields range from three or four barrels a day for Individual wells In the Oil City field to as much as 3000 barrels a day for ,the deeper holes in the east side field. 1 The total production of the district In '1906 was 7,991,039 batrels; in 1907 It was 8,871,723 barrels and In 1908 it will probably exceed 12,000,000 bar* rels."
