Natural Gas in Louisiana
United States Geological Survey Inriestigates Reported
Discovery of Petroleum and gas Northeast of the
Known. Productive Fields. 4
Washington, D. C.-Members of the
United States Geological Survey
have recently visited several locali
ties in Louisiana to investigate the
reported occurrence of petroledm and
natural gas east and northeast of the
known productive fields.
Bogalusa, Washington Parish.
During the last five years natural
gas has been noticed in water wells
drilled near Bogalusa, apd. more than
a year ago gas bubbles that left irri
descent films of oil on the surface
of the water were observed in Boga
lusa river. Samples of this gas coi
lected in glass jars smelled like the
crude petroleum of Southern Louis
iana. These samples and others men
tioned below, were analyzed by the
United States bureau of mines.
This sample contained no higher
hydrocarbons than methane, and no
hydrogen sulphide, olefines, or car
The nitrogen content of this gas is
ao great as to lead to the belief that
much of it is producedrby the de
composition of vegetable matter un
ier water near the surface of the
ground, but the presence of oil indi
eates also that part of the material
came from considerable depth.
A postholl dpg on the bank of the
Mistsssippi near Bayou Sara e'mitted
a-stiong odor oil, and when this
hole was deepened below the level
of. the present Mississippi river silt
the odor became .much stronger, and

feet; the third struck a log at a
shallow depth and was abandoned.
During 1909 another well was
drilled to a depth of more than 2,300
feet. Traces of oi were encomuntered
at 700 feet, but no considerable
amount of gas below 200 feet. At
2,300 feet salt water was struck and
the well was abandoned. During the
same year a well was sunk 1,300
feet at the sugar house in White Cas
tie, but gave no significant indica
tions of either oil or gas. A careful
examination of the logs of all wells
drilled for gas, oil or water in th's
region in recent years will be neces
sary to determine the probability of
obtaining a supply of gas sufficient
for practical uses.
Grosse Tete, Iberville Parish.
Nearly all the water wells drilled
near Grosse Tete to a depth of more
than 80 feet show natural gas, which
in several wells has had sufficient
pressure to blow the tubings out of
the ground. During the examination
made by the surveyor one of these
wells, drilled a year ago, was cleaned
of its accumulated mud by flushing
and, immediately produced gas of
suficient pressure to throw water
about 20 feet from the top of the
Monroe, Ouachita Parish.
A year ago a well was drilled at
the edge of the city of Monroe for a
water supply. It tapped natural gas
at 1,400 feet. At a point slightly be
low this the drilI went into salt wa
ter, yielding a large supply, which
still continues and fills a public
swimming pool The strata below
the salt water is comparatively dry,
containing traces of oil in gumbo a:
2,300 feet, at which depth the well
was abandoned. A second well 1s
now being drilled at the city water
works, in the hope of obtaining suf
ficient natural gas to replace the coal
useg for the city's electric lightlig
and for the municipal electric car
line. Considerable natural -gas has
already been 'obtained. A well of
large dimensions, if sunk. at least 3,
000 feet, might obtain gas in this
