Cut Bank Field 'Completion Gets
113 Barrels in é^-Hour Swabbin»
One well that swabbed 113 barrels the first 6Vfe hours, another that
had 800 feet of oil in the hole after drilling in, and another that was
a dry hole summarized developments in the Cut Bank field during
the week. Three new locations were made, all by the Texas com
pany, which also drilled in the two producers.

gary. Directly south, the Examiner
reports, the Raymond syndicate is
planning to drill on a 25,000-acre
block. Previously, some core drill
ing had been done in the area by
other concerns.
During the week, the Examiner
also reports, officials of Pacific Oil
& Refining Company confirmed re
ports they would test the Devonian
by deepening the old No. 1 well of
the Western Drilling Co., also
known as the Pacific-Twin River
No. 3. The well is now bottomed at
3,900 feet and will be drilled at least
1,500 feet deeper with rotary tools,
now being moved from an adjacent
well. This test is in Section 3-2N
20w4, about eight miles north of
the Alberta-Montana border, about
due north of the center of Range
8 west on the Montana side of the
line.
Also of interest in this area is
the joint test being drilled by the
McColl-Frontenac and British Do
minion companies on the Hay Lake
nose in Section 17, Township 1,
R17w4. This is only a few miles
northwest of the Border-Red Coulee
field, on the Montana-Alberta bor
der. Hole has been made in this
test to past 3,000 feet.
On the Del Bonita structure in
this same general area, McLeod Oil
Company is drilling at past 2100
feet, in Section 14, twp. 1, R. 21w4.
This is less than three miles north
of the border, directly north of
Montana's Range 9 west, northwest
of the north end of the Cut Bank
field.
On the nearby Twin River struc
ture, Trans-Alberta No. 1, Section
21, twp. 1, R. 20w4, is drilling at
past 3200 feet. This well is also
only a short distance northwest of
the north end of the Cut Bank field,
xpects production at the top of
Madison lime at about 3925.

It is expected lh?t only about
4,000 feel of drilling will be required
by the Union well, which is on the
apex of the Whitlash structure, to
provide adequate determination of
deep zone productive possibilities
of the structure.
Location is on the Mahoney lease,
in SW SW SE 22-37N-4E. It Ls only
a short distance from numerous
gassers, nearly all of which have
been in production for 10 years or
more, and several relatively small
producers of high gravity oil.
Daily Crude Output
Hits 4,743,850 Barrels
The American Petroleum Insti
tute estimates that the daily aver
age gross crude oil production for
the week ended Sept. 23, 1944, was
4,743.850 barrels. Daily produc
for the four weeks ended sept
1944, averaged 4,709,100 barrels.

The Union 01^ Company, contln

area 40 miles northwest of Great
Falls and a few miles northeast of
Choteau, plugged one wildcat in the
district during the week and com
menced another.
Plugged was Union's J. J. Greene
No. LKW SW SW 28-25-3W. Com
menced was Union-Slate No. 1, NE

has found promising showings in
some of the wells drilled in the
area.
Arctic Circle
Field Output
4,000 Barrels
Production of the Norman Wells
field in Canada, near the Arctic
circle, is currently reported at
around 4.000 barrels dally from
more than 50 producing wells, lim
ited by carrying capacity of the
pipeline which takes oil from the
field to Whitehorse, 550 miles away
Wells in the field get their pro
duction from the Devonian lime,
also recently found productive
much farther south, only 120 miles
north of the Sweelgrass Hills in
Montana, in a well recently com
pleted by the Standard of California
in the Princess field, east of Leth
bridge.
Turner Valley, Canada's largest
field, near Calgary, now has a daily
output of about 23.000 barrels, from
the top of the Madison lime.
