' DISCOVERED AT HOMER, LOUISIANA
MAKES 30,000 BARRELS OF 42 GRAVITY OIL DAILY
OFF-SETS MAKE 20,000 BARRELS
Whal are likely the world's largest high gravity oil wells, making from 20,000 to 30,690 barrels of high gaso
line test oil, have been brought in at Homer, Louisiana. The 30,000-barrel well was drilled by the Standard Oil
Company on the Oakes Tract four weeks ago. Operators would not believe ft until fcBig Bifl" Rowe brought in
a well on the adjoining tract making 20,000 barrels. All are now convinced.
THE LOUISIANA OIL AND REFINING COMPANY NEXT DRILLED THE REAL "WORLD'S CHAMPION IN
FANT," CLOSE BY IT MAKES 10,000 BARRELS OF HIGH TEST OIL FROM A "SHALLOW SAND" AT
1,233 FEET. THE WELL WAS COMPLETED IN SEVEN DAYS. THESE WORLD RECORDS HAVE BEEN
ESTABLISHED WITHIN THE PAST FOUR WEEKS. SO QUIETLY HAS DEVELOPMENT GONE ON THAT
ONLY A FEW HAVE KNOWN.
The Porterfield and Smith interests sent both a geologist and a scont to the field early after the discovery. A
a result they have secured one of the best pieces of acreage in the field forty acres half a mile froa the 30,.
000-barrel discovery welL
This acreage is today worth ten times the original purchase price. Forty acres adjoining it sold last week for
$500,000. Forty acres of a mile northwest of us sold for $750,000, -and the field is developing these hold
ings. They ako have four other large tracts "CHECKER BOARDING" the field on four sides, from one-half to a ra3e
distant Every tract seems to be a winner. In addition they acquired 2,900 acres of high class Louisiana acre
age. Operators are "wild" over the new discovery. Bnrkbnrnett and Oklahoma o3 men are abandoning the old fields.
Prices are soaring skyward. ' . ,
The Porterfield and Smith interests and associates announce the organization of the HOMER UNION PETRO
LEUM CO, a Louisiana corporation, to take over these holdings.
