OIL AND GAS ACTIVITIES IN FLORIDA, 1968


By
Clarence Babcock

PRODUCTION

The monthly and cumulative production for 1967, 1968 and 1969 from
Florida's four oil fields, all located in Collier County and Hendry County, figure
1, is presented in Table 1. All Florida wells are on pump. The 1969 production
from the Sunniland field was 36 percent greater than the 1968 production. This
increased oil production primarily reflects the use of submersible pumps in
recovery operations during 1969.
Table 2 shows the salt water production for Florida's four fields for specified
years. The figures for the Sunniland field indicate that the submersible pumps
which increased oil production in 1969 did not cause a significant increase in the
percentage of salt water production.

FIELD DESCRIPTIONS
AND 1969 DEVELOPMENT DRILLING

Florida's 1969 development drilling is summarized in table 3, which shows
that a combined total of 46,772 feet were drilled' in four wells in two established
fields. Also, a new field was discovered in 1969; the discovery well is listed in
table 4, which summarizes exploratory activity.
Each of Florida's fields, as well as the details of the drilling in fields as listed
in tables 3 and 4, will be discussed.

SUNNILAND FIELD

The Sunniland field, discovered in 1943 and operated by the Humble Oil and
Refining Company, is located in Collier County.
The structure is a northwest-southwest dome 2 miles wide and 4 1/2 miles
long, as shown in figure 2. There are 18 producing wells on this structure.
Production is from calcareous rock containing disoriented macrofossils
(rudistids) reached at a depth of about 11,500 feet. As shown on unpublished
cross-sections by Woodson R. Oglesby of the Bureau of Geology, productive
zones begin at the top of the Sunniland Limestone and extend to a point about
75 feet lower in the section. The lowermost of the five zones has a bottom water
drive.

* Following cement "squeezing" operations in the latter part of 1969, Mobil's new one-well
field now makes only about 0.2 of 1 percent salt water.


Yields from the better wells in the field range from about 130 to 400 BOPD
(barrels of oil per day). The oil has a gravity of 19 to 26 degrees API (American
Petroleum Institute).
Salt water produced in the field is injected into the "Boulder Zone" through
two disposal wells. The interval used for disposal is very permeable, contains
very saline formation water, and occurs between 2,960 feet and 3,020 feet in the
No. 8 GCRC (Gulf Coast Realties Corporation) disposal well, and 2,830 feet and
3,300 feet in the No. 14 GCRC disposal well.
At this time it is thought that 35 million barrels of oil probably is a reasonable
figure for the initially recoverable reserves of the field.

DEVELOPMENT DRILLING

Two wells producing from the upper Sunniland Limestone were completed by
the Humble Oil and Refining Company in the Sunniland field in 1969. These
wells were:

No. 26 Gulf Coast Realties Corporation
No. 27 Gulf Coast Realties Corporation

The top of the Sunniland Limestone in these wells is contoured in figure 2;
Well Data Sheets for the wells are included in appendix 1.
The No. 26 Gulf Coast Realties Corporation well had an initial production of
36 BOPD with 269 BWPD (barrels of water per day) from zone D; perforations

originally known as the No. 1-"B" Red Cattle Company wells. In 1968 two
additional producers, which on initial production tests yielded a combined total
of 187 BOPD with 249 BWPD, were completed as offsets to the discovery wells.
Also in 1968 a dry hole was drilled which defined the. limit of the field to the
north.
In each of the first three producing wells in the West Sunoco-Felda field, the
Roberts zone as described in the section of this report dealing with the original
Sunoco-Felda field is the productive interval.
In 1969, Board of Conservation Order No. 8 recognized that there was no
connection between the oil accumulation in the West Sunoco-Felda field and the
Sunoco-Felda field proper, except the common water drive of the area. Figure 3
shows these two fields to be separated by a distance of 3 miles; it also shows two
plugged and abandoned wells which are structurally high, and which are located
between the two fields. These intervening wells produced large quantities of salt
water on DSTs (drill stem tests) of the Roberts pay zone, as follows:

Well Drill Stem Test Results

Sun Oil Co., Interval: 11,481-491 feet
No. 26-1 Lee- Chokes: 5/8 and 1/4 inch

Cattle Co.

In the Sun, No. 26-1 Lee-Cypress well the "pay" zone consists of soft limestone
which appears to have the porosity characteristics of a classic chalk. The subject
section is fairly soft also in the Commonwealth Oil Company and Gulf Coast
Drilling and Exploration Company, No. 1 Red Cattle Company well. The
porosity of chalk is extremely good, but the pore spaces are minute. Such rocks
may contain water, but act as a barrier to oil migration.


DEVELOPMENT DRILLING

Drilling in 1969 in the West Sunoco-Felda field consisted of two offset wells,
both located in the Southern part of the field. Both of these tests were
completed as far better producers than previous field wells. The wells are:

were at 11,598-604 feet. The well was recompleted in zone C with an initial
production of 242 BOPD with 103 BWPD; perforations were at 11,573-584 feet.
Both of the productive zones are in the upper part of the Sunniland Limestone.
This well was one foot high to the No. 6 Gulf Coast Realties Corporation
producer, located 1,700 feet to the northeast. The No. 6 well has produced
almost 2 million barrels of oil, and during October, 1969, its production
averaged 136 BOPD with 150 BWPD.
The No. 27 Gulf Coast Realties Corporation well had an initial production of
40 BOPD with 293 BWPD. Electric log correlations reveal that the productive
interval is either zone C or zone D; perforations are at 11,588-600 feet.

SUNOCO-FELDA FIELD

In 1964 the Sun Oil Company discovered the Sunoco-Felda field, located
mainly in Hendry County, with the southern edge extending into Collier
County. This field is 18 miles north of the Sunniland field.
Structural nosing associated with a decrease of oil permeability in upgradient
directions is the trapping mechanism in the Sunoco-Felda field, figure 3. There
are 22 producing wells drilled on 160-acre spacing on this structure. The limits
of the field in all directions have been defined by 11 dry holes of which 7 were
offset locations, and 4 were outposts; also, 2 edge wells which were marginal
producers have been abandoned as oil wells.
Production is from the Roberts zone of the upper Sunniland Limestone. The
top of the Roberts zone is reached at depths ranging from about 11,460 feet to
11,488 feet; this zone is correlative with zone D of the Sunniland field. Babcock
(1964, fig. 4 and fig. 5) shows that in wells in the Sunoco-Felda area the Roberts
zone is 17-20 feet thick and consists of very soft to moderately soft
microfossiliferous (miliolitic) calcarenite. It is overlain by some 10 feet of
impermeable calcilutite or shaly calcilutite; and the calcilutite is overlain by a
calcareous interval which yields water when drill stem tested.
Yields from the better wells in the field range from about 200 to 320 BOPD;
the gravity of the oil is about 24.5 degrees API.
Pressure maintenance for the field is implemented by one salt water injection
well, and three fresh water injection wells (fig. 3).

DEVELOPMENT DRILLING

There was no drilling in the Sunoco-Felda field in 1969.

WEST SUNOCO-FELDA FIELD

In 1966 the first test drilled in this field was completed as a commercially
marginal producer; this was the Sun, No. 21-3 Red Cattle Company "B" well,

A-A', contained saturation not only in the Roberts zone proper, which was
described previously in this report, but also in an immediately overlying interval
which produced water in wells of the original Sunoco-Felda field. Where water
bearing, the subject interval consists of dense, chalky calcilutite; circumstances
suggest that these rocks are impermeable to oil.
The Roberts zone is the stratigraphic equivalent of zone D of the Sunniland
field. And, the upper part of the interval of saturation in the West Sunoco-Felda
wells completed in 1969 (fig. 4) has been informally referred to as interval "C",
to indicate its approximate stratigraphic equivalency with zone C of the
Sunniland field, where the "pay" is a discrete unit of saturated porosity
separated by hard rock from underlying and overlying productive units.
However, in the No. 28-3 well, of the West Sunoco-Felda field, the calcilutite
between the upper interval (so-called interval "C") and the lower interval
(restricted Roberts zone) contains slight vuggy porosity in moderately hard
chalky calcilutite, and is only 4 feet thick; this could well be insufficient to serve
as a vertical oil-permeability barrier between the intervals of saturation. It is
probable that pressures in the No. 28-3 well above and below the hard calcilutite
are very interdependent. Certainly in the No. 33-2 offset well to the south the
entire section of saturation consists of soft calcarenite with excellent vuggy and
intercrystalline porosity; there is no rock which could serve as a vertical
oil-permeability barrier anywhere within this section. Therefore, the entire
section of saturated rock in the No. 33-2 well forms a single pool, and the
interval of saturation represents a thickening of the Roberts zone, rather than
two separate zones.
The oil accumulation in the West Sunoco-Felda field is not part of the
Roberts pool of the Sunoco-Felda field proper, since the two fields are separated
by a barrier to east-west oil migration (fig. 3). However, the two oil
accumulations are interdependent to some extent, since they have a common
water drive, as discussed under "West Sunoco-Felda Field-Description."
Two additional offset wells located in the southern part of the West
Sunoco-Felda field (fig 3) were not completed as of the end of the report period,
and hence are not listed in the development drilling tabulation, table 3. The
Humble, No. 32-1 Lee-Cypress "A" wells, which probably will be a good
producer from the upper part of the Roberts zone which is productive in the
Sun, No. 28-3 Lee-Cypress "A" well, was testing the Sunniland Limestone on






BUREAU OF GEOLOGY


December 31, 1969. Also, the Sun, No. 33-3 Red Cattle Company "B" well was
coring the Sunniland Limestone on this date.
There are as yet undrilled permits issued to Sun for two other wells to be
located in the southern part of the field. These tests will be designated the No.
29-4 Red Cattle Company "B" well, located in the southeast quarter of Section
29, and No. 28-4 Lee-Cypress "A" well, located in the southeast quarter of
Section 28.

MOBIL'S NEW FIELD

The Mobil Oil Corporation, No. 1 Barron Collier, Jr., well was completed
March 30, 1969, as a discovery well for a new field. As yet a confirmation test
has not been drilled in this field; also, the field had not been officially named as
of the end of the report period.
The discovery well is located in Section 9, Township 47 South, Range 28
East; the survey is 1,980 feet from the south and east lines of the section. This is
in the Lake Trafford area, Collier County.
On the Initial Production Test, after acidation with 2,500 gallons, this well
yielded 118 BOPD, with 78 BWPD from perforations at 11,870-892 feet; the
pump was set below 11,000 feet. Subsequently, up-hole water was "squeezed
off" with cement, and the well was re-acidized. Testing over the past several
months indicates that the stabilized production will be about 100-115 BOPD
with 0.2 of 1 percent water.
The Stratigraphic Cross Section of figure 5 presents core descriptions,
electrical logs, and formation fluid and pressure tests for wells in the Lake
Trafford area. This section includes the Mobil discovery well and two other wells
which have been plugged and abandoned. Well Data Sheets for the discovery well
are included in appendix 1.

The productive interval in the discovery well is the lower Sunniland
Limestone of Lower Cretaceous Trinity Age, whereas the other fields in Florida
produce from the upper Sunniland Limestone. As depicted on the Stratigraphic
Cross Section, the minor and uppermost part of the productive interval is hard
calcilutite described as "vitiated rock;" cores were not available for the
remainder of the productive interval. The fine-textured "vitiated rock"
examined does not appear "rotten", and does not consist of Orbitolina rubble.
However, the rock is rather easily flaked off inward toward porous spaces, and it
is especially susceptible to fracture along occasional lines of weakness by a
needle-point used in examing the rock.
The electrical log, and correlations on the Stratigraphic Cross Section, indicate
that in the discovery well the zone of permeability, for most of which cores are
not available, could be 10 to 15 feet thick. Cores from the Mobil, No. 1 Sanders
well of the cross section revealed only some 2 feet of permeability in the zone of

saturation. It is understood that permeability in the lower Sunniland Limestone
was developed by boring organisms on a mud flat. The interval between the top
of the zone of saturation and the Punta Gorda Anhydrite was about 15 feet
thick in the discovery well, and only 2 feet thick in the No. 1 Sanders failure.

EXPLORATION

EXPLORATORY DRILLING

Table 4, which summarizes exploratory activity, shows that during the report
period 40,888 feet were drilled in four exploratory tests, one of which resulted
in the discovery by the Mobil Oil Corporation of the new field discussed in the
immediately proceeding part of this report. Information on three other wells
listed on table 4, and drilled in Duval County, northeastern Florida, will remain
confidential at the request of the operator until the middle of 1970. Also, the
Humble Oil and Refining Company, No. 1 Lehigh Acres Development,
Incorporated well was not completed as of the end of the report period, and
hence it is not listed in table 4. Drilling operations on this proposed 16,000-foot
Jurassic test were commenced on May 22, 1969, and the well was temporarily
abandoned August 28, 1969 at a depth of 15,710 feet, after reportedly reaching
"basement" rock. This is the deepest any well has been drilled in Florida.
A rumored show in the Sunniland Limestone of the Lehigh Acres well had not
been production tested as of the date of this report.
The Lehigh Acres well is located about 4 miles west of the West Sunoco-Felda
field, and in Section 14, Township 45 South, Range 27 East, Lee County; the
survey is 1,302.5 feet from the west line and 1,661.3 feet from the north line of
the section. There is a probable embayment between this well and the West
Sunoco-Felda field, as indicated by subsurface control in the field (fig. 3).
Another exploratory location, as yet undrilled though permitted on December
2, 1969, is not included in table 4, which lists only completed wildcat tests. This
test will be the Triton Oil and Gas Corporation, No. 1 University of Miami well;
the permitted location is:

Section 15-T45S-R34E
Survey: 660 feet east and about 433 feet north of the section lines

This places the location 4 1/2 miles west of the RK Petroleum Corporation, No.
2 Florida State Lease 1939-1939 S well, which was plugged and abandoned in
1968 as the westernmost well in the Forty Mile Bend area. The RK No. 2 well
contained thin sections of fair to good shows in both the upper and lower
Sunniland Limestone; but, the entire Sunniland Limestone section was very
tight.






BUREAU OF GEOLOGY


The proposed depth of the Triton Oil and Gas Corporation well is 12,500
feet. This depth should reach the Brown Dolomite section, which Banks (1964,
fig. I) reveals to have excellent porosity in a section about 100 feet thick in
wells along the southwestern coast of Florida. The Brown Dolomite is the upper
part of the "C-D" hoffatella decipiens) zone, which is about 1,700 feet thick;
and, Banks records (table 1) that the "C-D" zone in 8 wells of central and
southwestern Florida has contained 16 minor hydrocarbon manifestations and 1
possible manifestation.

GEOPHYSICAL ACTIVITY

OFFSHORE

The 1969 geophysical permits in State and Federal water bottoms offshore
from Florida are summarized in table 5; locations of the permits are shown on
figure 6. These presentations show that in 1969 there were 8 permits for
offshore geophysical activity; and one permit to test the use of explosive charges
to excavate cavities for footings for the anchors of oil well drilling barges. Of the
geophysical permits, 7 were for work to be performed on State and Federal
water bottoms west and south of Florida; and one permit was for a seismic
survey of Federal acreage offshore from the Florida east coast.
The number of offshore permits for each of the previous six years has been 5
in 1963, 7 in 1964, 10 in 1965, 13 in 1966, 23 in 1967, and 19 in 1968.

MAINLAND

Details of Florida's mainland geophysical activity, 1969, which totalled 236
crew weeks, are presented in table 6. Table 7 is a recapitulation of this activity
by regional areas within the State.

WATER BOTTOM LEASES

Figure 7 shows the locations, and a tabulation of lease information, for
Florida's two current offshore leases. The mineral rights of both of these leases,
containing a combined total of 3,910,460 acres, are held by the Coastal
Petroleum Company, and the annual rental received by the State from the leases
is $49,614.40.
Also, Coastal holds State Mineral Lease No. 248 on 11 lake bottoms of
Florida containing a combined total of 660,736 acres, including Lake
Okeechobee, with 467,200 acres. The annual rental on this lease is $19,985.92.

In a Federal Court case which commenced October 20, 1969, and lasted three
days, Coastal brought suit against the U.S. Corps of Engineers, the Trustees of
the Internal Improvement Fund, and the Central and Southern Florida Flood
Control District. Coastal maintained that the defendants had illegally denied the
company the right to mine limerock from Lake Okeechobee under the terms of
its lease. As of December 31, 1969, the opinion in this case had not been
rendered, but was anticipated in the near future.

MAINLAND

Current figures on land acres leased on the Florida mainland are not available
to this office. In 1965, however, these figures totaled 3,075,219 acres.

RULES AND REGULATIONS

Order No. 8 was adopted and promulgated by the Florida Board of
Conservation (later known as the Department of Natural Resources) on April 29,
1969. This order recognized that there is no connection between the oil
accumulation in the western part of the Sunoco-Felda area, and the
Sunoco-Felda field proper, except that of the common water drive of the area.
Therefore, the oil accumulation to the west, discovered in 1966, was designated
as a separate field to be known as the West Sunoco-Felda field.
Order No. 9, which was adopted and promulgated by the Department of
Natural Resources on July 24, 1969, permits the Humble Oil and Refining
Company to utilize the "Boulder Zone" in their No. 8 Gulf Coast Realties
Corporation abandoned producer for the disposal of salt water produced in the
Sunniland field. Currently the salt water production in the field is about 8,000
barrels per day, and it is anticipated that this will increase due to the installation
of submerged pumping equipment to recover oil from the field. The injection
will be through perforations at 2,960-3,020 feet in 5 1/2 inch casing; the
chlorinity of the water sample from this interval was 19,927 ppm. This injection
will not contaminate fresh water zones.

6. This well produces from the tight lower Sunniland Limestone. Several applications of
acid have been used to increase permeability. An unsuccessful cementing and
acidation operation will be described as an indication of the mechanical difficulties
encountered in completion attempts. This description is:

Some four months after the well initially was completed, the operator
perforated the casing opposite salt water zones immediately above the
productive interval; in the original setting of the production string, these
sIlt water zones had been inadequately sealed because the cement "flash set. "

Through the new perforations cement was squeezed to seal the salt water zones,
Then, the well was acidized; 15,000 gallons were on the location, but not all of
it was used. It was intended that the injected acid should go into the producing
zone, but instead it went upward into the newly "squeezed" cement opposite the
water zones, and thence through the perforations at that depth and into the casing.
This pressure increased from 3,700 psi to 7,900 psi.

Subsequently the subject water zones were successfully squeezed, the well was re-acidized
(with 5,000 gallons?) and stabilized production as of December 1, 1969 was 115 BOPD
with about 0. 2 of 1 percent water.

The pump is set below 10,000 feet, but the well produces gas to the surface which
eliminates fuel cost for pump operation. This well produces more gas than any well
in Florida to date, though the gas is non-commercial in quantity.

Comment: It appears that the oil recovery on DST of about 1 to 2 BOPD might have been better Z
If the drilling mud had been lighter. This mud had been increased to a drilling weight of 9.4
pounds per gallon, with a viscosity of 42, to improve sample and core quality. For this reason
the hydrostatic mud pressures shown above are unusually large.

BUREAU OF GEOLOGY


BUREAU OF GEOLOGY WELL AND LOCALITY DESIGNATION SYSTEM
The locality and well numbering system is based on the location of the
locality or well, and uses the rectangular system of section, township, and range
for identification. The number consists of five parts. These are: 1) a prefix of
three letters designating L for locality or W for well and county abbreviation, 2)
the quarter/quarter location within the section, 3) the section, 4) the township,
and 5) the range.
The basic rectangle is the township which is 6 miles square. It is consecutively
measured by tiers both north and south of the Florida base line-an east-west
line that passes through Tallahassee. This basic rectangle is also consecutively
measured both east and west of the principal meridian-a north-south line that
passes through Tallahassee. In recording the township and range numbers, the T
is left off the township numbers, and the R is left off the range numbers. Each
township is divided equally into 36 square miles called sections, and are
numbered 1 through 36 as shown on the attached diagram.
The sections are divided into quarters with the quarters labeled "a" through
"d" as shown on diagram. In turn, each of these quarters is divided into quarters
with these quarter/quarter squares labeled "a" through "d" in the same manner.
The "a" through "d" designation of quarters may be carried to any extent
deemed useful.
The location of the well WLn-2N-2E-21 db shown on the diagram would be in
the center of the southeast quarter of the northeast quarter of section 21,
township 2 north, range 2 east.
When there is more than one well or locality in a square 40-acre tract
(quarter/quarter section) they are identified by either an additional quarter
designation or by a sixth arbitrary accession number at the end of the range unit.
