Canadian Exports Average 8,672 Barrels Per
Day And Local Refiners Use 8,250 Barrels
Per Day Of Montana Crude
r Montana oil fields produced only slightly mtore than the con
sumption of crude oil during the month of June, according to
monthly statistics prepared by the Oil Conservation Board of
Total consumption was 524,291 barrels against 528,662 barrels.
Kevin-Sunhurst field produced 137,919 barrels and consump
tion was 150,246, meaning that over 12,000 barrels of storage
oil was run to supply local refiners with 111,272 barrels and ship
ped 35,730 barrels to Canada.
Cut Bank produced 291,959 barrels against consumption of
249,265—an overproduction of 49,000 barrels.
Cu!t Bank produced 21,460 barrels and the market was 30,
Pondera produced 33,404 barrels and marketed^ 38,877 bar
rels. Other fields produced 43,920 barrels and used 55,002 barrels,

others a total of 1,302,423 barrels on July 1, against 1,298,052 on
the first day of June.

4,145 barrels per day.
Conservation Board Formulates
Answer For Indian Department
' Members of the Oil Conservation Board of Montana
left Great Falls Friday afternoon for Sun River canyon to
meet at the summer home of W. E. Rice, a member of the
hoard. Mr. Rice was unable to come to Great Falls, owing to
ill health. , . , ,
Among the matters coming before the board was a re
quest for examination from officials of the Department of
the Interior, of the inability of operators on Indian lands to
market their crude, in Cut Bank oil field.
Cut Bank buyers are making no new connections, owing
to over-production, as a result, wells drilled since June have
been without a market for their oil. .
In attendance at the meeting were L. B. O Neil, chair
; O. M. Webb, Roy Tarrant, Rice and R. P. Jackson,
