EXPLORATION FOR OIL AND GAS IN FLORIDA

By

Herman Gunter, Director

FLORIDA GEOLOGICAL SURVEY



Exploration for oil and gas in Florida declined drastically during 1950

to the lowest level since 1943. Three wells begun late in 1949 were completed

early in 1950 and one well begun in 1945, on which progress has been slow, re-

mained active throughout the year. Only nine permits for drilling new wells

were issued in 1950. Of these, eight were completed and abandoned as dry

holes and one, namely, R. E. Skinner's J. A. Boyd, Block 10, No. 1, in

Pinellas County, was drilling at the end of the year. The total activity for

1950 included three completions, the permits for which were issued in 1949,

and eight completions, the permits for which were issued in 1950, and two

wells drilling, one permit issued in 1945, the other in 1950.

Summary:

11 wells completed in 1950 All dry and abandoned


2 wells drilling on December 31, 1950, one of which
was begun May 2, 1945.

Footage drilled in 1950 68,834 feet.








Sunniland Area Collier County


The Humble Oil and Refining Company discontinued all developmental

drilling in the Sunniland Field, nd in the area surrounding that field,

after the completion, as dry and abandoned, of the Gulf Coast Realties Corpo-

ration No.17 well, June 14, 1950. This decrease of activities seems to

indicate that the Sunniland Field has been outlined sufficiently for the

present.


Of the twenty wells that have been drilled in the Sunniland Field,

thirteen were successfully completed as producing wells, four others had

encouraging oil shows but attempts to bring them in failed, and three

proved dry. One location, the Gulf Coast Realties Corporation No. 3,

one mile east of the discovery well, was never drilled and the location

abandoned. In the vicinity of the Sunniland Field, west and northwest

from it, four prospect areas have been drilled in an attempt either to

extend the Sunniland Field or to make additional discoveries, as follows:


West Sunniland Prospect 2 tests
Northwest Sunniland Prospect 1 test
Southwest Lake Trafford Prospect 2 tests
West Harker Prospect 3 tests


In the Sunniland Field and the nearby prospects in Collier County

the Humble Oil and Refining Company has completed a total of 28 wells.

The footage drilled in the Sunniland Field proper totals 234,569 feet

and in the four prospect areas 78,748 feet, the cumulative total of

313,317 feet drilled in the immediate Sunniland region, as average of

11,190 feet for each well. See Figure 1 (page 4) for specific location

of all of these wells and tables on pages 5 through 12 for additional

details.

REGULATORY MEASURES


The Legislature of 1945 passed an Act to regulate and control the

drilling and development of oil and gas in Florida, and all wells drilled

since have been constructed under the provisions of this Act. One provision

of the law requires that samples of the cuttings and of the cores, the

driller's and electrical logs, and other records, shall be sent to the Florida

Geological Survey. These records are in the Survey offices and are open for

reference to any who may wish to study the open files of cuttings, cores, logs

and related data. When an operator so requests, however, data are held in a

confidential file for a stated period, otherwise the entire well library is

available for reference.


This well library file of cuttings and cores contains samples from not

only the tests drilled for oil or gas, but also of wells drilled in every

portion of the State for water. We acknowledge our indebtedness to the

water well contractors and drillers of Florida for their cooperation and

readiness to furnish voluntarily such complete information on the wells they

drilled. These records have enabled the Geological Survey to determine in-

formation of the subsurface structure and stratigraphy which otherwise would

not be obtainable.


DETAILED ACTIVITIES FOR 1950

During 1950 test wells were drilled in ten counties Baker, Collier,

Columbia, Escambia, Levy, Monroe, Pinellas, Suvannee, Taylor and Walton -

and details on these are set forth alphabetically by County in the tables

that follow. All of these test wells were completed and abandoned during

the year, except the two in Pinellas County. (See pages 16-25)









PROSPECTS FOR 1951


As an insurance against anticipated emergency requirements the

petroleum industry will expand its efforts to increase productive capacity

during 1951. Oil is a vital necessity during normal times and is crucial

when needed for military requirements. It is possible that increased demand

for petroleum will be reflected in prospecting in Florida during the coming

year.


PRODUCTION


The production of oil during 1950 totaled 486,021 barrels compared with

441,720 barrels for 1949, or an increase of 44,301 barrels. The total

cumulative production of oil from the Sunniland Field from the discovery date,

September 26, 1943P to December 31, 1950, inclusive, totals 1,578,571 barrels.

The crude oil is shipped by tank truck to Port Everglades at Fort Lauderdale

for shipment elsewhere for refining. Table No. 1, on the following page,

gives the monthly, yearly and cumulative production since the discovery of

oil in the Sunniland Field.


ACKNOWLEDGEMENT


The Survey would be remiss if it did not acknowledge its appreciation

of the uniform and generous cooperation of all the representatives of the

oil companies operating in Florida, the drilling contractors, independent

operators, and other individuals. Without this splendid and wholehearted

response the efforts of the Geological Survey would have been far less

effective and our work much more difficult.
