Page 190 - America are: 1. The impossible areas for petroliferous rocks. (a) The more extensive areas of igneous rocks and especially those of the ancient shields; exception, the smaller dikes. (6) All pre-Cambrian strata. (c) All decidedly folded mountainous tracts older than the Cretaceous; exceptions, domed and block-faulted mountains. (d) All regionally metamorphosed strata. (e) Practically all continental or fresh-water deposits; relic seas, so long as they are partly salty, and saline lakes are excluded...

Page 46 - It is manifest that we here have to deal with a force of great geological importance. If quartz, during crystallization, exerts a pressure on the sides of a vein which is of the same order of magnitude which it offers to crushing, then this force is also of the same order of magnitude as the resistance of the wall rocks, and it thus becomes possible that, as indicated...
Page 191 - Ordovician unfolded strata. (c) Lake deposits formed under arid climates that cause the waters to become saline; it appears that only in salty waters (not over 4 per cent.?) are the bituminous materials made and preserved in the form of kerogen, the source of petroleum; some of the...

Page 24 - The Oil Spring or fountain rises in the midst of a marshy ground. It is a muddy and dirty pool of about eighteen feet in diameter, and is nearly circular in form. There is no outlet above ground, no stream flowing from it ; and it is of course a stagnant water, with no other circulation than that which springs from the changes of temperature and from the gas and petroleum that are constantly rising on the surface of the pool.

The first well in the Salt Lake field was drilled in 1901 by the Salt Lake Oil Co., and since 1902 this field has been the chief producer in the Los Angeles district. The wells are deeper than in the City field, ranging between 1,200 and 3,000 feet, and the average gravity of the oil is between 16° and 18° Baume. Considerable gas under strong pressure accompanies the oil, which causes the wells to gush during the early part of their life. The...
