IN KEVIN 17 MILES APART The same contractor-operators, Pre vol & Shea, are drilling the two ex treme locations. Three new wells are starting this week, at widely separated points In Kevln-Banburst field, one being four mile« east of production and 17 miles away from the western most of the three wells starting. Prevol & Shea are rigging up on their newly acquired lease on gov ernment land in the Rocky Ridge pool, on part of the old Lincoln permit which was recently sold at public auction at the Great Falls land office. Location of the well is the center of the south line of the NWVi SW^4 11-3 5-3W. Location is short distance east of a well drill ed in pioneer days by Standard of California which paid $400 an ac re for part of the Lincoln permit. That well had a small production of oil but it was abandoned as non commercial, more than a decade be fore the introduction of the science of acidization in this field. à Prevol & Shea, acting contrac tors. began drilling this week on the Thompson farm, in C NE % SE>4 28-3-4-IE, for Kippen OH & Gas Co.

Government regulation, he said in a speech over the Texas state radio network which he heads, would be j a <* 8ad ^ay for the oil Industry" but he a< ided that the industry had "reached a forked road In Its prog ress." He felt that a "strong co-opera tive interstate oil compact" was the best solution for petroleum prob lems. Unless'that type of solution Is found, he said, secretary of In terior Harold L. Ickes, a strong ad vocate of federal control, would in troduce in the next congress a bill to give the national government "full regulation over production and refining o <t oil." er. Rig is up.

Continental now controls most of Cat Creek oil field, Montana's first commercial oil field which has thus far produced In excess of $22,000,000 worth of oil. It was , one of the first operators In the ! field, taking over properties of the i Elk Basin and Frantz corporation : which had been merged into Mutual i Oil company. Later it took over Midwest (Standard of Indiana) properties. For some time negotia tions have been in progress looking toward a unit operation with a sys tem of repressuring by which it Is hoped to increase the ultimate re covery. Continental is said to have concluded to buy the Homestake properties, part cash and part out of production, the Homestake re taining a 6 Va per cent royalty on any deep sand production that may be developed in the future. The Homestake ranks as one of the miost successful Independent producing companies in the history of the Montana oil Industry. It has paid steady dividends an<L has not diverted its Cat Creek earnings into other enterprises. No announcement regarding the sale has been author ized by the officers of the company and no hint has been given regard ing the future plans of the corpora tion.

He UTILITIES FIRM OPPOSES LOAN FOR BIG LINE ; Montana WASHINGTON.—The Dakota Utilities company by con structing a 200-mile extension, could serve five cities that would ; be served by a $21,000,000 gas de- i velopment proposed by another com pany, it told the federal power commission. The Montana-Dakota company en tered Tuesday a protest With the commission against granting an ap plication by the Kansas Pipe Line and Gas company for a $21.000,000 development to serve five weslerd' states. The Montana-Dakota company contended a short extension of the line it now operates from the Baker | gas field would enable it to serve Fargo and Grand Forks, N. 1).. and Moorehead, East Grand Forks and Crookston, Minn., which the Kansas company is seeking to serve. DRILLERS RACE (Continued from I'ure One) Comparison of the elevation of the top of the Colorado indicates that the Nadeau well is checking lower on structure than both the Yukon oil well and the Cobb gas well two miles northeast, checking fears that I the Nadeau well would get gas in-1 stead of oil. The Nadeau well is expected to j get the top of the "pay" in the Moulton sand, new producing hori-; zon developed In the Darling pool, i at around 2642. They will get the! lower oil horizon at 2660, and: should complete at about 2675. Leasing still continues through out the two townships bordering the; Canadian line. A. B. Cobb, leading Independent operator, is reported to ; have brought his total above 4,000 acres. Yukon Oil company has around 2,000 acres; Warren Hast ings has around 2,000 acres; The Texas company has a similar block. ( During the past week K, D. Pardee leased 320 acres of the Billstad | farm in Sections 33 and 34, Twp. 37, Hg. 5W, southwest of the Yu kon-Lungren producer. The firm of Castle & Pardee now has 720 ac ires in the district. 31, Nadeau Brothers will validate more than 2,000 acres of the Uob By completing a producing well on or before midnight of December art Crowley permit of which 200 [acres are close to the Darling pool producers. Warren Hastings, representing a Portland. Ore., group which has pro duction in Pondera oil field, was in Cut Bank this week but made no announcement regarding drilling plans. All operators are carefully watching the outcome of the \a dean well which may reflect the trend of the Moulton sand oil pro duction.
