Several wells drilled in the Kevin

amounts of amber oil. A well drilled

During the 10-year period 1933-43
the cost of finding oil in the United
States Increased four-fold. Using
the initial estimate of the reserves
discovered, In 1944 the cost of find

from 1936-38 average discovery
was 13.8 cents. These figures do
include the cost of developing new
oil pools discovered, nor the cost
