ABSTRACT


Florida oil production began to decline in 1979 and continued this trend during 1990 and 1991. Jay
field, the largest producing field in Florida, controls the rate of decline. Two panhandle oil fields were
plugged and abandoned in 1991. These were Bluff Springs and McDavid fields; both were single-well fields
which produced from the Smackover Formation.
Onshore exploratory drilling during 1990 and 1991 concentrated primarily in the Florida panhandle
where 13 wells were drilled in Escambia, Santa Rosa and Okaloosa Counties. A single exploratory well was
drilled in south Florida in Okeechobee County. All 14 exploratory wells were plugged and abandoned as
dry holes.
Only one exploratory well was completed in federal waters off Florida in 1990; there were no offshore
completions in 1991. This well was the second to be drilled in Destin Dome block 56; both wells drilled in
this block are classified by the federal government as producible Norphlet discoveries.
Geophysical exploration conducted during 1990 and 1991 concentrated in the known oil producing
areas of the panhandle and the south Florida peninsula. In addition to this completed geophysical
exploration, an application is pending for an extensive offshore seismic, gravity, and magnetic survey which
would potentially explore a dense grid off of Florida's Gulf coast extending from offshore of Apalachicola,
Franklin County to offshore of Naples, Collier County.

1990 AND 1991 FLORIDA PETROLEUM
PRODUCTION AND EXPLORATION


Jacqueline M.


INTRODUCTION

There are two major oil producing areas in
Florida. One is the Sunniland trend in south
Florida, the other is in the western panhandle
area. The Sunniland trend includes 14 oil fields;
the western panhandle includes eight. Appendix
1 lists the discovery well data for these fields.
Uoyd (1991) includes descriptions of each of
these 22 oil fields. The descriptions include
discovery data, development history, geologic
information, and production data.
South Florida production began with
Florida's first oil discovery at Sunniland field in
September, 1943. Of the 14 south Florida oil
fields, 10 are active, one is temporarily shut-in,
and three are plugged and abandoned. These
fields are oriented along a northwest-southeast
trend through Lee, Hendry, Collier, and Dade
Counties (Figure 1). This trend has become
known as the Sunniland trend. Production is
principally from rudistid reefs found in the upper
one hundred feet of the Lower Cretaceous
Sunniland Formation (Figure 2).
Production in the western panhandle began
with the discovery of Jay field in June, 1970. The
eight panhandle oil fields are located in Escambia
and Santa Rosa Counties, Florida (Figure 3). Five
fields are active and three are plugged and
abandoned. Production is from Upper Jurassic
Smackover Formation carbonates and Norphlet
Sandstone sands (Figure 4).

1990 AND 1991 PRODUCTION

Florida oil production began to decline in
1979 and has continued to do so since then
(Figure 5). Total oil production for 1990 was
5,674,382 barrels, down 22 percent from 1989.
Production dropped another 17 percent during
1991 for a 1991 total of 4,726,747 barrels. Oil and
gas severance taxes collected for 1990 and 1991
totaled 10.2 million dollars and 7.4 million dollars,
respectively. Appendix 2 lists 1990, 1991, and


By
Uoyd, P.G. #74


cumulative production statistics for each of
Florida's oil fields including oil, gas, and water
production data. Appendix 3 lists 1990 and 1991
field well statistics including the number of
production, injection, shut-in, and temporarily
abandoned wells for each field.
Jay field dominates Florida production. The
field was discovered in 1970 and reached peak
production in 1978. It accounts for about 64
percent of the 1990 oil production total, about 62
percent of the 1991 total, and about 70 percent of
the cumulative total. Figure 6 graphically
compares statewide annual oil production with
Jay field annual oil production for 1970 through
1991, clearly showing Jay field's dominance in
Florida oil production trends. The Jay field
production curve is typical of oil fields produced
with tertiary recovery methods (David Curry, Oil
and Gas Section Administrator, Florida Geological
Survey, personal communication, 1990).
Production has leveled off during the last five
years (1987 through 1991, Figure 6). This
generally agrees with the projections made by
Christian et al. (1981) in their discussion of tertiary
recovery estimates for Jay field. They predicted
a production plateau of about 10,000 barrels/day
for about 12 years (1984 through 1996). They
estimated that tertiary recovery would be
terminated in 1996, followed by rapid decline to
depletion in about 2004. Total production will be
about 84.7 million barrels; 37.5 million would have
been produced through waterflood alone
(Christian et al., 1981).
Figure 7 is a histogram comparing 1989,
1990, and 1991 oil production for all Florida oil
fields except Jay field. Jay field data would
obscure the information for all other fields since
its production for 1989 was nearly six times
greater than that of Raccoon Point field, the axt
most productive field in Florida during 1989.
Northwest Florida production decreased by 23
percent from 1989 to 1990 and by 19 percent
from 1990 to 1991. South Florida production
decreased by 21 percent from 1989 to 1990 and
by 9 percent from 1990 to 1991.

Information Circular 108


Two northwest Florida oil fields, Bluff Springs
and McDavid, were plugged and abandoned in
1991. Both were single-well fields and were
producing mostly saltwater (Appendix 2) from the
Smackover Formation. The discovery and
development history of these two fields is
discussed in Uoyd (1991).

1990 AND 1991 ONSHORE
DRILLING ACTIVITY

Only three development wells were drilled
during 1990 and 1991. Two of these were drilled
in Corkscrew field; one at Mt. Carmel field. Only
one of the Corkscrew field wells was successfully
completed as a potential producer. A description
of these wells is given in Appendix 4.
Fourteen exploratory wells were drilled
during 1990 and 1991 (Appendix 5, Figure 8).
Thirteen of these were drilled in northwest Florida
in Escambia, Santa Rosa and Okaloosa Counties.
These wells tested the Smackover Formation or
Norphlet Sandstone, with one exception. Permit
1269 (Figure 8 and Appendix 5) had the Upper
Cretaceous Tuscaloosa Formation as its target.
The well is located between Jay and Mt. Carmel
fields in Santa Rosa County within the structurally
complex area associated with the Foshee Fault
System (see Uoyd, 1991, Figures 14 through 16).
Interest in exploring the Tuscaloosa Formation in
northwest Florida stems from successful
production from the Tuscaloosa in Alabama. This
particular area has been targeted due to the
discovery, in association with the fault system, of
the Foshee Field in Alabama (Montgomery, 1987;
Uoyd, 1991). A 1988 wildcat (Permit 1229, Uoyd,
1991, Appendix 5) also targeted the Tuscaloosa in
this area. Both of these wells have been plugged
and abandoned as dry holes. The 1990/91
deeper Smackover and Norphlet test wells were
also plugged and abandoned as dry holes.
One exploratory well was drilled in south
Florida in Okeechobee County. This well targeted
the Sunniland Formation; however, it is located
approximately 60 miles northeast of the
productive Sunniland trend and was also plugged
and abandoned as a dry hole.


OFFSHORE DRILLING ACTIVITY

State ownership of the continental shelf off
Florida extends three miles into the Atlantic
Ocean and about 10.5 miles (three marine
leagues) into the Gulf of Mexico. The federal
government controls resources beyond these
state boundaries out to 200 miles. The Outer
Continental Shelf (OCS) is a jurisdictional term
that describes the offshore area which is under
control of the federal government. "Federal
waters," in this context, does not refer to
ownership, but rather to responsibility (Johnson
and Tucker, 1987).

Exploratory Drilling in State Waters

A total of 19 wells were drilled in Florida state
waters between 1947 and 1983 (Appendix 6 and
Figure 9). Effective July, 1990, all drilling activity
was prohibited in Florida state waters (Uoyd and
Ragland, 1991) except for within pre-existing lease
areas. The information obtained from the wells
that were drilled in state waters may be useful in
future decisions concerning offshore exploration
and development in federal waters.
The 19 offshore wells tested three different
potential oil horizons. Ten of the wells are within
the South Florida Basin (off Charlotte and Lee
Counties and off the Florida Keys, Monroe
County, Figure 10) and targeted the Lower
Cretaceous. The six wells drilled off the Florida
panhandle sought to extend the onshore (and
offshore Alabama) Jurassic production (Figures 3
and 4). The remaining three wells drilled off the
northern portion of the Gulf coast (Permits 304,
382 and 383) were Cretaceous or possibly
Paleozoic tests (Applegate and Uoyd, 1985).
As shown in Appendix 6, only one of the
wells drilled in state waters had a significant oil
show. A drill stem test of the Gulf Oil-Florida
State Lease 826-Y (permit 275), located near the
Marquesas Keys off Monroe County, recovered 15
barrels of 220 A.P.I. gravity oil and 14.1 barrels of
saltwater from the Lake Trafford (?) Forma. )n.
Another well, which was drilled in federal waters
near the Marquesas, tested black saltwater in the
Lake Trafford and Sunniland Formations and in
the Brown Dolomite Zone of the Lehigh Acres
Formation (Applegate and Uoyd, 1985). Charles

Information Circular 108


Tootle (1985, Florida Geological Survey, personal
communication, in Applegate and Uoyd, 1985)
believed this well could be a low volume oil
producer from the Lake Trafford and Sunniland
Formations.
Applegate (1987) conducted an extensive
study of the Brown Dolomite Zone of the Lehigh
Acres Formation in the South Florida Basin. He
concluded that this zone could be a potentially
prolific producing horizon offshore. He found that
the best development of the Brown Dolomite
onshore is in Charlotte and surrounding counties
in the northern part of the South Florida Basin at
a depth of about 12,000 feet. Here, the Brown
Dolomite Zone attains a maximum thickness of
100 feet, of which about one-half is porous and
capable of high volume fluid production.
Offshore, the maximum thickness occurs near the
Marquesas Keys, where about 400 feet of mostly
porous dolostone has been found. Very little oil
staining has been found in the Charlotte County
area, but staining has been observed in the
Marquesas area, as discussed above.
Applegate (1987) concluded that the best
possibility for finding oil in the Brown Dolomite
Zone appears to be in the offshore portion of the
South Florida Basin. Brown Dolomite is present
in at least three wells on the Sarasota Arch
(Figure 10) and probably continues around the
rim of the basin southeast to the Marquesas,
where thick porous dolostone is present.
Applegate (1987) believed that stratigraphic and
structural traps associated with this dolostone,
which is capped by dense limestone and
anhydrite, may have led to the formation of giant
oil fields.
In addition to this South Florida Basin
potential, there has been interest in extending
Jurassic production in the Florida panhandle area.
Jurassic production occurs onshore in the Jay
trend area (Figure 3) from the Smackover
Formation and Norphlet Sandstone (Figure 4).
There is also Jurassic production twenty miles to
the west of the Florida Alabama boundary where
several natural gas fields produce from the
Norphlet Sandstone in Alabama state waters in
Mobile Bay. The Mary Ann gas field was the first
of these to be discovered in 1979. An additional
six natural gas fields have been established in
Alabama state waters since then (Masingill, 1989).
Recoverable reserves have been estimated at 4.93


to 8.12 trillion cubic feet of natural gas (Mink et
al., 1987).
A Jurassic test, the Getty Oil-Florida State
Lease 2338, Well No. 1 (permit 1097), was drilled
in 1983 to a total depth of 18,011 feet (-17,981
feet MSL) in East Bay, Santa Rosa County, Florida
(Appendix 6, Figure 9). Two tests in the
Smackover Formation produced only saltwater.
The Norphlet Sandstone and underlying Louann
Salt, which together are responsible for
production in the Mobile Bay fields, were very thin
in this well (Applegate and Uoyd, 1985).
The three wells drilled off Levy, Citrus, and
Pinellas Counties do not fall within the obvious
target areas discussed above. None of these
wells had significant oil shows or porous zones.
Two of the three penetrated Paleozoic rocks; the
third bottomed in the Lower Cretaceous
(Appendix 6). These may have been drilled with
interest in both the Lower Cretaceous and the
Paleozoic potential. Amoco drilled five Paleozoic
wildcat wells to the north of this area (Taylor,
Madison, Lafayette, and Dixie Counties) in the
early 1980's (Applegate and Lloyd, 1985). All
were dry holes and none had any shows of oil.
Paleozoics in Florida range from Devonian to
Ordovician or Cambrian in age, and are faunally
related to African rocks (Cramer, 1971, 1973).
Production from the west African rocks spurred
interest in Florida; however, the Florida Paleozoic
sandstones are extremely indurated and have
very little porosity or permeability (Applegate and
Uoyd, 1985).

1990 and 1991 Exploratory Drilling in
Federal Waters, Offshore Florida

The first federal oil and gas lease sale off
Florida was conducted in May, 1959 off the
Florida Keys in what is now the Straits of Florida
Planning Area. Ten additional OCS lease sales
have occurred since then; seven in the Eastern
Gulf of Mexico Planning Area and three in the
South Atlantic Planning Area. There have been
no sales in the Straits of Florida Planning Are. ff
Florida since the 1959 sale. The last lease sale in
the South Atlantic Planning Area off Florida was
Sale 78 in July, 1983.
The two most recent lease sales off Florida
were in the Eastern Planning Area. They were
Sales 79 and 94, held in January, 1984 and

January, 1985, respectively. Eastern Planning
Area Sale 116, held in November 1988, excluded
all areas originally proposed off the Florida coast
(Uoyd and Ragland, 1991). Lease sales 79 and
94 are discussed in Applegate and Uoyd (1985)
and Uoyd and Applegate (1987). Leases in the
Eastern Planning Area are shown on Figure 11.
Only one well was completed off the Florida
panhandle during 1990, none were drilled during
1991 (Figure 11). Appendix 7 includes data on
this well and another that was actually completed
in 1989 (Andy Petty, Minerals Management
Service (MMS), personal communication, 1992).
Information for the 1989 well was not available at
the time of the publication of 1988 and 1989
Florida exploration and production data (Uoyd,
1991). Both wells are in the Destin Dome area.
The principal drilling targets in this area are the
Smackover Formation and the Norphlet
Sandstone (Figure 4). One of these wells was the
second well drilled by Chevron in block 56 (map
location code 32, Figure 11). The first was
completed in 1988 and was described as a
producible Norphlet field by Gould (1989). The
second is also apparently producible from the
Norphlet (Andy Petty, MMS, personal
communication, 1992).
The Amoco-8338 well, which was completed
in Destin Dome block 111 in 1987, was also a
Norphlet discovery described by Gould (1989) as
a producible field (map location code 31, Figure
11). This was the first commercial discovery in
the Eastern Gulf of Mexico Planning Area (Gould,
1989). The Oil and Gas Journal (1989) discusses
the Chevron-6406 well and quotes Chevron USA
Inc. as stating that "...the well was not tested due
to safety and cost considerations. However,
analysis of cores and wireline logs indicate the
presence of gas in the Norphlet sandstone."
These discoveries extend the offshore Norphlet
gas trend seaward and eastward from the Mobile
map area of the Central Gulf of Mexico Planning
Area, offshore Alabama, into the Florida offshore.

1990 AND 1991 GEOPHYSICAL
EXPLORATION ACTIVITY

Eight geophysical permits applications were
received by the Florida Geological Survey during
1990; five were received during 1991. Of these 13
applications, 12 have been permitted and one is


still pending permit approval. One of the
permitted surveys (G-138-90) was canceled by the
applicant; however, it has been resubmitted as a
portion of the pending permit application (G-147-
91) (Appendix 8 and Figure 12). Appendix 8
summarizes the data for these applications,
including total survey mileage by area (panhandle
onshore and south Florida) and by survey method
(seismic gel (i.e. explosives) and gravity).
Geophysical exploration concentrated in the
Florida panhandle and the southern Florida
peninsula (Figure 12). The panhandle exploration
included the known oil-producing Santa Rosa
County and extended east into Okaloosa County.
South Florida seismic activity was within the
known Sunniland producing trend in Collier,
Hendry and Lee Counties.
In addition to the completed geophysical
exploration, the pending permit application (G-
147-91, Appendix 8) includes an extensive
offshore seismic, gravity, and magnetic survey.
This survey would potentially explore a dense grid
off of Florida's Gulf coast extending from offshore
of Apalachicola, Franklin County to offshore of
Naples, Collier County (Figure 12). (The portion
of this application area off the panhandle was
previously permitted; however, the survey was
cancelled by the applicant and resubmitted as
part of the currently pending application--see
"permitted; not surveyed area" on Figure 12 and
G-138-90 in Appendix 8.) The seismic portion of
the survey will cover a total of 3,812 miles.

SUMMARY

Florida oil production continued to decline
during 1990 and 1991. Jay field, as the leading
producing field for Florida, controls the rate of
decline. The field appears to be following the
production curve predicted by Christian et al.
(1981) in their discussion of tertiary recovery
estimates for Jay field.
Three development wells and 14 exploratory
wells were drilled during 1990 and 1991. Two of
the development wells were drilled in Corkscrew
field; one at Mt. Carmel field. Only one of the
Corkscrew field wells was successfully completed
as a potential producer. All but one of the
exploratory wells are located in the Florida
panhandle where 13 wells were drilled in

Escambia, Santa Rosa and Okaloosa Counties.
All 13 wells were plugged and abandoned as dry
holes. A single exploratory well was drilled in
south Florida in Okeechobee County. This well is
located approximately 60 miles northeast of the
Sunniland trend and was also plugged and
abandoned as a dry hole.
Only one exploratory well was completed in
federal waters off Florida in 1990; there were no
offshore completions in 1991. This well was the
second to be drilled in Destin Dome block 56;
both wells drilled in this block are classified by the
federal government as producible Norphlet
discoveries.
Geophysical exploration conducted during
1990 and 1991 concentrated in the Florida
panhandle and the south Florida peninsula. The
panhandle exploration included the known oil-
producing Santa Rosa County and extended east
into Okaloosa County. South Florida seismic
activity was within the known Sunniland-producing
area in Collier, Hendry and Lee Counties. In
addition to this completed geophysical
exploration, an application is pending for an
extensive offshore seismic, gravity, and magnetic
survey which would potentially explore a dense
grid off of Florida's Gulf coast extending from
offshore of Apalachicola, Franklin County to
offshore of Naples, Collier County.

23 6,100 Bottomed in Upper Cretaceous(?).



23 15,455 No porosity in Sunnitand Fm.
Well bottomed in Pumpkin Bay
(Late Coahuilan). Very difficult
to correlate this well because of
anhydrite development. Structur-
ally very low.


10 7,019 Bottomed in Lower Cretaceous.



32 12,631 Well cored from 11,661-12,544'
in Sunniland and Punta Gorda.
Encountered some salt stringers
in Punta Gorda. Only 60' of dark,
dense calcilutite in SunniLand.

26 7,505 Bottomed in Lower Cretaceous.



56 15,478 Four drill stem tests:
12,474-12,533'(Lake Trafford?)
12,534-12,544'(Sunnitand)
12,582-12,822'(Sunni and)
14,642-14,702'(Brown Dolomite)
The 12,474-12,533' test recovered
15 barrels of 22 degree API
gravity oil and 14.1 barrels of
saltwater. Brown Dolomite from
14,650-15,036' was somewhat vuggy.
This may be the principal target
in this area. Net dolomite esti-
mated at 400'.
