Hieavy I'Pre.ure and Ec.aping (Gas
Indliciate Strong i-low of Fluid.
In a strip of woods on Oak Point
plantation. near ('oncession. Plaquie
mines parish. Saturday afternoon. a
group ot tired. roughly garbed men
looked down happily at a stream of
muddy water flowing through a
trough. The surface of the water
contitantiy broke into bubble and
along its length stretched a wide
ribbon of what was declared to be
oil. The men were R. Hughes, vice
president of the Gulf Development
Company, and Superintendent Geo.
A. liesse. of the company and his
crew of drillers and tool dressers.
The trough led to the opening of
Sell No. 1. of the Gulf Development
t'ompany and from it issued the
bubbly. oily water.
"By Tuesday," said Superintend
ent Hesse. "she is coming in. We
surely have a well, but how big I
am not prepared to say. The indi
cations are excellent and I believe
it will prove to he a big gasser with
lots of gasoline."
Suspended from a derrick 112
feet high swung a section of six
inch casing, which was being low
ered to the mouth of the well, where
it was clamped on to the long string
of pipe already hanging in the well,
which is now in the neighborhood of
25i01 feet deep.
"This," explained the superin
tendent. "is the last operation pre
vious to what we call baling the
well. during the process of which a
well is brought in. When we com
menced to get gas and pressure, the
well was then choked with the only
thing that will keep it under control
-mud. It is now full of mud. The
water you see coming out through
the trough is water forced to the
bottom and coming up on the out
side of the casing. making the drop
ping of the casing into the well
Drill Well IDep.
In the tiny office of the superin
tendent at the camp were a great
number of slender glass tubes filled
with rock and sand and water, etc.
These, he explained, constitute the
log of the well, showing every stra
tum which the rotary drills have
penetrated. At a much higher level
oil was struck but there was salt
water present, so the drill went on
it way through this, seeking the
fluid at a deeper level. From all
appearances, according to the men
on the job, they have struck sand
stone that ought to be full of oil
or gas or both.
"Everybody is on the qui vive."
said the happy vice-president, Mr.
Hughes, to whose efforts the devel
opment of the company property is
due. "We may get a gusher-who
knows? But that we have a well is
a mortal cinch. She's coming and
I believe coming strong. When we
bale her out, just watch and see
her spout."
A most enjoyable evening was
spent on Saturday at th.e home of

no value. It is now on exhibition at:
