Read What The Shreveport Journal Says About Us « From The Shreveport Journal January 15th 1921 The Old Caddo, ru Shrevep^n's Mea • Ticket, Lead All The Belding Oil Corporation « Has Stag 2 d Numerous . 'Come-backs' In the excitement and confusion at tending the bringing in of new oil fields, the good old standbys are some times forgotten temporarily, for in stance, Shreveport's meal ticket, the daddy of them all—the Caddo field. An instance of the frequently recur ring "come-back" in certain portions of fb« Caddo field is the rehabilitation of what is known as the "Sweetie" Bailey-Caldweil lease, m 20-22-15 and 29-22-15, in Caddo, by the Balding flil Corporation, a group of d4 Shreveport bankers, wholesale and retail mer chants and professional men, who last November, bought the 100 acres in thé ■o-ealled ','addo "strip" lying between, Hosston and Vivian, on which is the original Bailey No. 1. This well opened up a new district in the Caddo field, and was drilled by Bill Rowe, in 1912. It came in pro ducing 2,200 barrels, and flowed for three years, diminishing gradually as eÜMMPe pressure decreased, and wa3 practically abandoned when oil went to 35 cents.. Bailey No. 2, close by. came in pro ducing 1,200 barrels, and flowed three years, with the same fate. Altogether, five wells were drilled, at that time proving the section -a profitable pro ducing çne. Later the lease was taken over by the Church, Burton A Pfeiffer Syndi cate, Which brought Bailey No. 1 back last October, producing 250 barrels. The Belding Oil Corporation was or ganised to wildcat in Bull Bayou. Its roster of charter members contains the hemes of some of the most influ ential and prominent men -in Shreye pbrt. ... Instead of wildcating, however, the directors, of the corporation believed that there money could be made for. the Stockholders in the rehabilitation of abandoned territory in the Caddo field! which belief has been justified. Caddo has been one of the most con sistent producing fields in the United States. The lure of newer and showier fields frequently * has drawn seasoned oil then away from their properties in Caddo only to return later to the old meal -ticket when they had dumped their winnings in another field. It w*s en this theory that the Beld ing Corporation took advantage of the opportunity to buy the Bailey-Caldweil leaae with the intention of bringing it back to production. Four of the old wells on this prop erty have been rehabilitated to good producing capacity; No. 1, rpaking 259 barrels on the pump and the others producing and coming back stronger every day. As soon as the corporation saw that Bailey No. 1 was coining back, it con tracted for three new wells, which show every indication of becoming gdod producers. Q.ie is complete 1 and producing, and the other two have been drifted in and are awaiting rigs. The prospects are that all three will be substantial producers. The Beld ing Corporation has reserved its "deep rights" in the Woodbine sand, and are contemplating drilling into it. There are other properties on the Caddo Strip that are capable cf reha bilitation. A deep stratum of oil sand has been discovered close to the Strip at 2,200 feet. A well clos? to the Strip came in produwig 15,000 barrels, estimated, proving an abundance of deep oil in tnat locality. As many as twenty new derricks are up in the Strip now, and it is reported that one of tne big companies has ordered six ty derricks built in it at once. ~ Interest in the Strip has been re vived, and oil men, competent by ex perience, are more than ever con vinced that Caddo is the "mother pool/' and that almost every part of it is susceptible to further explora tion, and, in many places, capable of profitable rehabilitation.
