MADISON LIME TEST PLANNED
ON APEX OF ELK BASIN FIELD
CASPER. —Most interesting news of the week in Wyoming oil
circles is announcement that Stanolind is planning a Madison lime
stone test on the apex of the Tensleep sand producing area, by
deepening a well now producing from the Tensleep sand horizon.
The well to be deepened, accord- ♦
Ing to the report, is on the Wyo
ming side of the line, less than a
quarter of a mile south of the boun
dary line, in NE SE NE 24-58N
100W.
The entire field is now unitized
and Stanolind will conduct the drill
ing as the unit operator.
If Madison lime producion is
found, it will open up the third dra
matic chapter m the history' of this
two-state field.
The fifst chapter was written a
quarter of a century ago, when high
gravity oil and large quantities of
gas were produced from wells that
went only to the Frontier sand
depths of around 1750 feet.
The field then languished until
1943, when deep drilling, in excess
of 5000 feet, resulted in trie bringing
in of an unbroken chain of pro
ducers from the Tensleep sand
stone.
The Tensleep was found to be
gently folded than the over
lying Frontier, with the result that
the area of Tensleep sand produc
tion is much greater than that of
the Frontier. Whether the condition
will be accentuated with depth and
whether the Madison, if oil-bearing,
will yield crude over a much wider
area than the Tensleep is something
still to be determined.
The deep test planned by Carter,
as far as is known, will be the first
attempt in this field to ascertain oil
possibilities of the Madison lime.
