FOREWORD


Information Circular No. 1 was issued February 14, 1948, and has proved

to be a very helpful and ready reference. It was necessary to re-issue this

mimeographed report in order to meet the demand and this additional supply is

now exhausted. In bringing the data up to date consideration has been given

as to the best method of presenting this additional information. The question

of issuing a supplement containing data only for 1948 or of re-running the

entire Information Circular No. 1 in which the 1948 data were incorporated

was raised. Thinking that it would best serve all interests it has been

decided to do the latter and provide data on oil exploration in Florida

from its earliest beginning to January 1, 1949. With the publication of this

revised circular it is planned to keep it up to date with yearly supplements.

Each supplement will contain data for the particular year covered. This

revised Information Circular No. 1, is therefore, largely a reprint of

Circular No. 1 with the incorporation of the exploration activities for 1948

and contains appropriate changes and additions in the text to bring all of

the available information up to date, January 1, 1949.

EXPLORATIONS FOR OIL AND GAS IN FLORIDA

Herman Gunter, Director
Florida Geological Survey
Tallahassee


INTRODUCTION


It seems that there always has been an interest in the possibility of

producing oil and gas in Florida, if such interest is measured by the number

of requests for information received by the Florida Geological Survey.

Through the years the Survey has published papers and reports dealing with

the petroleum possibilities, structure and the geology of the State, but

recently there has been a growing demand for more complete information about

the early explorations. It is hoped this mimeographed report will supply

most of the desired data, and make a ready reference for the information

which is available in Survey files. In this connection it may be said that

we have endeavored to obtain dependable data on the wells drilled years ago,

but we invite corrections and additional information from any who may be in

a position to furnish such. Especially welcome would be driller's logs,

newspaper clippings or notes on wells drilled prior to 1910. Such records

would supplement the meager and unverified data that we now have on these

earliest operations.


Prior to June 5, 1945, Florida had no law regulating the drilling for

oil or gas. Since the establishment of the Florida Geological Survey in

1907, however, attempts have been made to record details of all exploratory

drilling and also to gather data on explorations made prior to 1907.

Because there was no law regulating drilling, information was obtained only

through the interest and willingness of the operators to give essential data

while the well was in progress, or to submit it after completion. With but

few exceptions, cooperation in this has been most satisfactory and agreeably







rendered. When a request has been made by the operator or owner to hold data

confidential for a stated period, this has been done in every case.


It can be recorded with much satisfaction that the drillers of water

wells have been cooperative and willing to submit information and samples

of the drill cuttings from wells drilled in almost every portion of Florida.

Through the years our persistent efforts to procure such data have resulted

in a file of samples and cores from 1856 water wells and oil test

borings. These data have proved of inestimable value during recent years

in the accelerated search for geological and structural information bearing

on the origin and accumulation of oil. These excellent records were at

least a factor contributing to the decision of several major oil companies

to locate their offices and district headquarters in Tallahassee.

HISTORY OF DEVELOPMENT
As stated, the recording of data for the wells here listed began with

the organization of the Survey in 1907. However, in those earlier years

records were not as complete as they now are, and there was less inclination

on the part of the operators to release their records. Then, too, the Survey

organization was more limited in personnel and did not visit the operations.

Consequently, the records of those early drillings leave much to be desired.

After wells are abandoned it is difficult, if not impossible, to get reliable

information. This is certainly true in Florida, especially for those earlier

wells, the records of which have become so distorted with age as to make

them of questionable value. In all instances efforts have been made to

verify and re-check the names of the operators, the location, the depth,

and other data by reference to old newspapers, by visits to persons who may

have kept records of such drillings, by interviewing drillers, surveyors,

and by correspondence. Sometimes the sum total of such efforts have been

satisfactory, yet for certain wells verified data is still lacking.

and by correspondence. Sometimes the sum total of such efforts have been

satisfactory, yet for certain wells verified data is still lacking.







As nearly as has been established, the earliest test for oil in Florida

was about 1900 or 1901, at Pensacola, Escambia County. This well was drilled

by the Escambia Oil Company at the foot of Palafox Street to a depth of

1,320 feet. Apparently this rig was then sold to another local company,

Pensacola Development Company, and two wells were drilled: No. 1 about 5 miles

west of Pensacola in what is now New Warrington, and No. 2 on East Hill in

Pensacola at the intersection of Tenth Avenue and Mallory Street. These wells

attained depths of 1702 and 1620 feet, respectively. I Driller's logs on both

of these have been preserved and published in Water Supply Paper 102 of the

U. S. Geological Survey, 1904, and in the Fourteenth and Seventeenth Annual

Reports of the Florida Geological Survey.


Upon completion of these wells, interest in this west Florida area

seemed to diminish temporarily and the next wells of record were drilled in

Sumter County, central peninsular Florida, in 1903. Two wells were put

down, the first apparently being abandoned at about 1200 feet because of

drilling difficulties, and the second completed at a depth of 2002 feet. It

is not known why these particular areas in western and central peninsular

Florida were selected, unless it was on the basis of general surface

geology, Sumter County lies within the region referred to in literature as

the "Ocala Uplift", being that part of Florida where the upper Eocene

limestones are exposed at the surface, or only thinly mantled by more recent

sediments. It has long been recognized as a regionally geologic high area,

and could therefore have attracted the attention of the early explorers for

oil in the same manner as it has intrigued those in more recent years.


From these early beginnings the interest in the possibility of oil

or gas in Florida has waxed and waned through the years. From rather close

familiarity with the oil prospecting developments in Florida for many years






it is evident that some of this interest was prompted by enthusiastic, over-

zealous, professional promoters whose first concern was personal gain. By

far the larger number, however, made serious attempts to find oil, as is

evidenced by the several deep wells drilled by operators of highest

integrity whose motives were never questioned. Even the first wells of record

in Escambia County were of this character and for that early day the depths

of these were quite impressive, ranging from 1320 to 1702 feet.


In 1939 a well was completed near Pinecrest, Monroe County, at a depth

of 10,006 feet. This was the first well in Florida to attain that depth and,

although it did not produce oil, it was drilled under the constant supervision

of a trained geologist who kept detailed data on the formations penetrated

and gave personal attention to the collection of cuttings and cores, as well

as other pertinent data. The complete information yielded by this deep test,

terminating as it did in sedimentary formations at more than 10,000 feet,

drew the attention of major oil companies to the potential possibilities of

Florida. The year 1939 is, therefore, as appropriate dividing point between

early prospecting in Florida and the present period of prospecting by major

companies. During this first period from about 1900 to and including 1939,

there were at least 87 tests drilled. Many of these were very shallow and,

except for having been drilled by operators who so designated the well,

could hardly be labelled as "oil tests". But there were many wells drilled

during this first period that are acknowledged to be as completely tested,

adequately samples, and recorded as any in the state.


As an index, however, of the increased interest and activity in oil

prospecting, the period from 1940 to 1949 records the completion of 129 wells,

with five wells in process of being drilled on January 1, 1949. It was on

September 26, 1943, that the Humble Oil and Refining Company completed their






Gulf Coast Realties Corporation No. 1 well at a total depth of 11,626 feet,

and brought in the first oil well in Florida. The initial production was

97 barrels of oil with 425 barrels of salt water, the oil having a gravity of

20.80 A.P.I. This well continued its production until May 14, 1946, when on

account of decrease in production it was plugged and converted into a salt

water disposal well.

This first well, Gulf Coast Realties Corp., No. 1, did not flow, as was

also the case with the second producing well, Gulf Coast Realties Corp. No. 4.

Although two wells, Gulf Coast Realties Corporation No. 5 and No. 8 came in

flowing they were put on pump June and December, 1948, respectively. This

only oil producing field in Florida had a total of eight wells on January

1, 1949 three pumping and five flowing, as follows:

FARM: Gulf Coast Realties Corporation
No. 4 11,597 ft. Initial production 257 barrels. Pumping
No. 5 11,578 ft. Initial production 518 barrels. Pumping
No. 6 11,578 ft. Initial production 225 barrels. Flowing
No. 8 11,576 ft. Initial production 527 barrels. Pumping
No.10 11,574 ft. Initial production 175 barrels. Flowing
No.11 11,573 ft. Initial production 120 barrels. Flowing
No.13 11,572ft. Initial production 395.37 barrels.
Flowing

FARM: Lee Tidewater Cypress Lumber Company "B"
No. 1 11,588 ft. Initial production 136.5barrels. Flowing

The total production of oil in Florida from its discovery, September

26, 1943, through December 31, 1948, was 650,830 barrels. Some of this oil

was formerly used in drilling operations but now it is shipped by tank car to

a Standard Oil Company refinery in Charleston, South Carolina.

--REGULATORY MEASURES

An act to regulate and control the drilling and development of oil and

gas in Florida was introduced and passed by the legislature of 1945, and

received the approval of the Governor on June 5, 1945. This is Chapter 22819

(No. 305) Laws of Florida 1945. This law was patterned after a model pre-

pared under the supervision of the Interstate Oil Compact Commission with

such changes as were deemed advisable after public hearings were held, con-







ducted by the Attorney General and the committee from the Florida Bar Associ-

ation. It has had the careful scrutiny of members of the legal department of

at least two of the major oil companies. It is considered as good a conser-

vation act as could be devised at the time. So far, it has proved adequate

for development in Florida and appears to meet the satisfaction of all con-

cerned. Copies of this law, together with copies of the rules and regu-

lations that have been adopted by the State Board of Conservation as well as

copies of forms 1 to 12 applicable in the rules, can be obtained upon request

addressed to Honorable R. A. Gray, Secretary of State and Secretary Oil

Division, State Board of Conservation, Tallahassee, or to Dr. Herman Gunter,

In 1947, the Legislature passed an act levying a taxon oiland gas produced

in Florida. This is Chapter 23883 (No. 269), Laws of Florida 1947, and copies

may be obtained by addressing requests to the Secretary of State, Tallahassee,

Florida. This act became a law without the Governor's approval and was filed

in the Secretary of State's office June 3, 1947.


SUMMARY

From the more or less complete information at hand it is known that

through December 31, 1948, approximately 216 wells have been completed as

tests for oil or gas. There were on January 1, 1949, five wells incompleted

and drilling, and in the tabulated data there is included some few established

locations that may be drilled in the future.


The wells drilled prior to 1939 were largely on general geologic

evidence or on "hunches" such as the topographic and physiographic






Gulf Coast Realties Corporation No. 1 well at a total depth of 11,626 feet,

and brought in the first oil well in Florida. The initial production was

97 barrels of oil with 425 barrels of salt water, the oil having a gravity of

20.80 A.P.I. This well continued its production until May 14, 1946, when on

account of decrease in production it was plugged and converted into a salt

water disposal well.

This first well, Gulf Coast Realties Corp., No. 1, did not flow, as was

also the case with the second producing well, Gulf Coast Realties Corp. No. 4.

Although two wells, Gulf Coast Realties Corporation No. 5 and No. 8 came in

flowing they were put on pump June and December, 1948, respectively. This

only oil producing field in Florida had a total of eight wells on January

1, 1949 three pumping and five flowing, as follows:

FARM: Gulf Coast Realties Corporation
No. 4 11,597 ft. Initial production 257 barrels. Pumping
No. 5 11,578 ft. Initial production 518 barrels. Pumping
No. 6 11,578 ft. Initial production 225 barrels. Flowing
No. 8 11,576 ft. Initial production 527 barrels. Pumping
No.10 11,574 ft. Initial production 175 barrels. Flowing
No.11 11,573 ft. Initial production 120 barrels. Flowing
No.13 11,572ft. Initial production 395.37 barrels.
Flowing

FARM: Lee Tidewater Cypress Lumber Company "B"
No. 1 11,588 ft. Initial production 136.5barrels. Flowing

The total production of oil in Florida from its discovery, September

26, 1943, through December 31, 1948, was 650,830 barrels. Some of this oil

was formerly used in drilling operations but now it is shipped by tank car to

a Standard Oil Company refinery in Charleston, South Carolina.

--REGULATORY MEASURES

An act to regulate and control the drilling and development of oil and

gas in Florida was introduced and passed by the legislature of 1945, and

received the approval of the Governor on June 5, 1945. This is Chapter 22819

(No. 305) Laws of Florida 1945. This law was patterned after a model pre-

pared under the supervision of the Interstate Oil Compact Commission with

such changes as were deemed advisable after public hearings were held, con-







ducted by the Attorney General and the committee from the Florida Bar Associ-

ation. It has had the careful scrutiny of members of the legal department of

at least two of the major oil companies. It is considered as good a conser-

vation act as could be devised at the time. So far, it has proved adequate

for development in Florida and appears to meet the satisfaction of all con-

cerned. Copies of this law, together with copies of the rules and regu-

lations that have been adopted by the State Board of Conservation as well as

copies of forms 1 to 12 applicable in the rules, can be obtained upon request

addressed to Honorable R. A. Gray, Secretary of State and Secretary Oil

Division, State Board of Conservation, Tallahassee, or to Dr. Herman Gunter,

State Geologist and Assistant Secretary Oil Division, State Board of Con-

servation, Tallahassee. Such requests will receive prompt attention.


In 1947, the Legislature passed an act levying a taxon oiland gas produced

in Florida. This is Chapter 23883 (No. 269), Laws of Florida 1947, and copies

may be obtained by addressing requests to the Secretary of State, Tallahassee,

Florida. This act became a law without the Governor's approval and was filed

in the Secretary of State's office June 3, 1947.


SUMMARY

From the more or less complete information at hand it is known that

through December 31, 1948, approximately 216 wells have been completed as

tests for oil or gas. There were on January 1, 1949, five wells incompleted

and drilling, and in the tabulated data there is included some few established

locations that may be drilled in the future.


The wells drilled prior to 1939 were largely on general geologic

evidence or on "hunches" such as the topographic and physiographic








resemblance to certain oil fields elsewhere, or because of the use of some

particular "oil finding" machine that in the hands of the operator would

predict the occurrence of petroleum. Care should be used in distinguishing

these pseudo-scientific methods from the bona fide geophysical exploration

methods of recent years. It should be borne in mind that the accepted and

credited geophysical methods do not reveal or indicate the presence of oil or

gas, but provide another valuable tool in the hands of trained technicians in

determining subsurface structural conditions.



'Trom 1940 to the present the exploration for oil and gas has been

intensively carried on by the major oil companies. The methods of exploration

have included not only surface geology, but also the study of samples from

wells throughout the State, detailed field work within defined areas including

geophysical exploration and intensive structural drilling. In the drilling

of these structural tests the operations are carried to some well known zone

often necessitating tests of 1500 to 2000 and more feet deep. While statistics

are not available, it is judged that several hundred such tests have been put

down by the major oil companies working in different areas. In addition,

much geophysical prospecting has been accomplished and some is in progress.

Different methods have been tried, some apparently with more satisfactory

results than others. The deep drilling already accomplished has yielded

information that is, however more dependably interpretable than the

geophysical exploration results. With it all, however, Florida's geological

history is gradually being fathomed, although there are many perplexing

problems still unsolved.


This highly creditable and excellent work by the various companies and

individuals has resulted in a store of information about geological conditions

in Florida that necessitates much study and time to assimilate. Some of the







exploratory work resulted in conclusions immediately favorable as, for instance,

the first well drilled in the Sunniland Field proving production. In other

areas no production has been found, but the geologic and stratigraphic data

have been very helpful and revealing. (That production so far has not been

found outside the Sunniland Field apparently has not discouraged the major

oil companies, for prospecting continues generally throughout the State.

The Sunniland Field may receive more intensive developments so that the

possibilities in that southern Florida region can be more completely

determined.


Florida is a large state with an areal extent of about 58,000 square

miles. The sum total of 216 wells is an unimpressive number for so large an

area, and it is therefore no wonder that results have not been more favorable.

That production will not follow continued exploratory efforts can not be

forecast and, from the activity currently going on, it must be concluded

that those carrying on such explorations have a basis for them a wild cat

territory with ample thickness of sedimentary formations that could yield

oil if favorable traps can be found. Testing in progress may give some of

the answers. Problems such as source beds, their position and extent, the

condition of permeability and involved lithologic variations, and the usual

questions of structure and stratigraphy always present in new regions, all

have presented themselves in Florida, The solution to these problems

apparently lies in data to be revealed through more drilling.




EXPLANATION OF TABLES

The tabulation which follows is arranged alphabetically according to

counties. Under each county the individual operations have been arranged

chronologically as nearly as possible. Data for each well includes: 1) the



3.1







company or owner; 2) farm or well name; 3) location; 4) elevation; 5) year

completed; 6) depth; 7) remarks. And also there is included the well number

assigned by the Florida Geological Survey, In this there will be found two

designations: W-875 and Wgi-386. The first, W-875, means that the Survey

has samples and drilling data; the second, Wgi-386, means that we have no

samples but may have a driller's log, analysis of water, or other information.


The records on file in the Survey offices are open for ready reference

and available to the public. In some instances current data is held for a

definite period in the confidential file, if the operator makes such request

and the State Board of Conservation approves. Should anyone wish to study

the open file of cuttings and cores, the Survey will be glad to make them

available.


ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS


We wish to express appreciation and hearty thanks to all drilling

contractors, representatives of oil companies, individual operators, and

others, who have so willingly and splendidly cooperated in the Survey's

effort to accumulate these data. Also, to those who have Dainstakingly

delved into whatever original record they might have in order to help us

complete fragmentary information and to verify inaccurate or uncertain

details, we extend thanks and acknowledge with appreciation their helpful

service. We have a very creditable file of records which is continuously

adding tc our knowledge of the geology, structure and stratigraphy of

Florida.
