OIL ACTIVITIES IN FLORIDA

During 1954

By Herman Gunter
Florida Geological Survey
Tallahassee



Exploration for oil and gas in Florida during 1954

continued at about the same rate as for 1953, with interest intensified

to a large degree by the discovery of a new oil field in Florida. A

summary of the year's activities is found on page 13.


FLORIDA HAS A SECOND OIL FIELD
'"\I
The year 1954 recorded another oil field for Florida -

The Forty-Mile Bend Field, about 42 miles west of Miami on the

/ Tamiami Trail. The Commonwealth Oil Company, et al., No. 1

M. B. Wiseheart-State Board of Education well, was completed

February 6, 1954, with an initial production of 76 barrels of oil per

day with gravity of 21. 2 API at 60*. The total depth of this well is

11,557 feet and the producing zone is the Sunniland, at a depth of

11, 322-11, 339 feet. Its total production was 10, 673 barrels of oil,

or an average of about 32 barrels per day.

A second producer was brought in by the Gulf Oil Corporation










the No. 1 State of Florida Lease 340 well, located about three

miles east from the discovery well. This was completed April 5,

1954, at a total depth of 11,352 feet. The producing zone, the

Sunniland, is from 11,340 to 11,352 feet. The initial production

was 112 barrels of oil per day, gravity 21. 7 API at 600. During

1954 this well produced 10, 819 barrels of oil, or an average of

about 40 barrels per day.


GEOPHYSICAL AND CORE TESTING

About all of the southern half of Florida was prospected

by seismograph and a portion of this area was also core drilled. The

Panhandle section was also heavily prospected, the core drilling

program being about as large as the geophysical program. No

work was done in counties east of Gadsden and north of Citrus.

The Tallahassee Scout Check reports that 429 crew weeks

were spent in seismograph work and 220 crew weeks in core drill

work during 1954. Two crew weeks of gravity work was done in

Citrus County. Included in the geophysical work were 68 crew weeks

spent on submerged lands. The Florida Bay area in Dade and Monroe

counties and the area offshore from Sarasota County to Franklin

County were covered. Eleven oil companies were prospecting the

State and four were interested in offshore testing.











SUNNILAND FIELD


The Sunniland Field continued to produce oil during 1954

at about the same rate as for 1953. The last flowing well was placed

on pump in June, 1953, and in August, 1954, the No. 4 Gulf Coast

Realty Corporation well was plugged because of depletion, making

a total of eleven wells all on pump in the Sunniland Field. The

cumulative production from this field since September, 1943, its

discovery date, to January 1, 1955, totaled 3, 833, 975 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.

The total production of oil from the Sunniland Field and

the Forty-Mile Bend Field for 1954 amounts to 3,855,574 barrels.

(See Tables 1 and 2, pages 5 and 6)..
