OIL EXPLORATION ACTIVITIES IN FLORIDA

During 1953

By Herman Gunter, Director
Florida Geological Survey
Tallahassee


The search for oil or gas in Florida during 1953 has topped the

exploratory activities of any previous year. The number of completions

exceeded those of 1952 by an increase of 220 per cent; the number in 1952

was 10, the number in 1953 was 32. The discovery of the Pollard Field in

Escambia County, Alabama, early in 1952, continued to intensify the interest

in activities in northwestern Florida, while the "shows" of oil in the deep

tests of southern Florida stimulated activity there, and also with the settle.

ment of ownership of offshore tidelands there came renewed activities in that

type of exploration. No new field was discovered.

In peninsular Florida, however, significant shows of oil have been

encountered in at least four tests as follows:

1. The Commonwealth Oil Company et al., M. B. Wiseheart -
State Board of Education No. 1, about 42 miles west of
Miami on the Tamiami Trail, has given such encouraging
drill stem tests that pumping equipment is being in-
stalled. This well may prove to be a discovery well
in a new field. The productive zone has been determined
as the upper portion of the locally termed Sunniland
lime. Another well was spudded December 16, 1953,
about 4 miles east of this well, on the Tamiami Trail,
by the Gulf Oil Corporation, which should give additional
information on the possibilities of the area.

2. The Sinclair Oil and Gas Company's H. R. Williams No. 1
test on Key Largo, Monroe County (extreme southern
Florida), is reported to have encountered saturated
lime in the Sunniland horizon at approximately a depth
of 9,974-10,002 feet. The well was decisively tested,
drilled to a total depth of 11,968 feet and abandoned.

3. Humble Oil and Refining Company's W. E. Kirchhoff, Jr.
et ux. No. 1, about 6 1/2 miles south of Fort Myers,
Lee County, recorded a number of cores with oil stains
and bleeding oil from depths between 5,488 feet to
12,440 feet. After numbers of drill stem tests and
drilling to a total depth of 12,877 feet, the well
was abandoned as dry September 9, 1953.

4. Gulf Oil Corporation's Consolidated Naval Stores
Company No. 1, about 11 miles southeast of Fort Myers,
Lee County, also recorded a number of shows of dead
oil, oil stains and bleeding cores from 9,595 feet
to 11,774 feet. The well was abandoned as dry at a
total depth of 12,865 feet.

In the panhandle portion of Florida from the Apalachicola River west-

ward there were 26 tests completed in 1953. This exceptional activity in

western Florida proved disappointing in that not one of the completed tests

recorded any shows of oil or gas. The deepest of these tests was 7,512 feet

in Escambia County. All others range from 3,812 feet in Jackson County to

7,000 feet in Santa Rosa County, the latter being the second deepest in

the area during 1953.


OFFSHORE ACTIVITY

Another point of particular interest is the offshore drilling begun

in Florida during 1953. The Gulf Oil Corporation on December 1, 1953,

spudded their No. 1 State of Florida Lease No. 833 well in southern Santa

Rosa County. This first offshore test was actually directional drilling,

the rig being located on shore, but the completed hole to terminate at a

specified distance from shore. It is anticipated that there will be more

offshore drilling since the recent decision on the tidelands ownership.

Geophysical exploration in Florida reached an all time high during

1953. The accompanying map indicates the 30 counties in which seismic,

gravity meter, core drill, and offshore explorations were carried on. It indicates









that approximately the southern half of the Peninsula, western Florida

and certain offshore areas were actively prospected, while in the central

and northern portions of the State no activity, either geophysical pros-

pecting or test drilling, was recorded during the year. According to

records at hand, in 1952 there were 23 crews operating for 486 1/2 crew

weeks, and in 1953 there were 30 crews operating 700 crew weeks, an

increase of 30.4 per cent in crews and 44.0 per cent in crew weeks over

the previous year. The year 1946 has held the high score with a total

of 28 crews and 606 crew weeks, but now 1953 takes first place over all

previous years in this type of exploratory work.




SUNNILAND FIELD

The Sunniland Field continued to produce oil during 1953 at about the

same rate as for 1952. The total from the 12 wells was 541,284 barrels as

compared to a total of 591,855 barrels in 1952. The cumulative production

from this field since September, 1943, its discovery date, to January 1,

1954, totaled 3,307,753 barrels. The crude oil is moved by tank trucks

from the field to Port Everglades just south of Ft. Lauderdale where

tankers take it to the refinery. For detailed data on production see

Table 1, next page.
