CRUDE OIL PRODUCTION was a relatively
new effort for Sohio in 1943. Expanding our
activities, we discovered a number of new
fields and brought them into production, thus
multiplying our crude oil output at a time
when finding new sources of crude is increas

remains to be found in the United States,
and Sohio plans 90 to 100 wildcat wells in
1944 for discovery of new fields.
