Seite 89 - The dip of the measures is from 50° to 60°, and it is impossible to say that a single bed produces oil for the entire field, although this is suggested by the increasing depths of the wells in the direction of the dip. More or less water is pumped with .the oil, and it is the opinion of the superintendent that the two are mined and come from the same bed.
Seite 89 - Nos. 12 to 15 Inclusive, it is to be inferred that several others have been in existence in earlier days. Indeed, one or two of these old wells still contain a slight amount of oil. The producing wells are sunk in northward-dipping sandstone and shale a mile north of the axis of the Tapo anticline. They yield at present from 5 to 40 barrels of oil per day. The gravity is 20° to 24° Baume, the 20° oil being produced by the well highest up in the canyon and lowest as to the strata penetrated.
Seite 89 - The whole of the lower half of the Vaqueros strata exposed in Tapo Canyon shows a greater or less impregnation with petroleum. No unusual amount appears to have been assembled in proximity to the axis of the main anticline, and it may be that the productive territory is a particularly rich portion of the series of beds which, from some cause or other, has held its oil better than the great mass of the beds in the region. From the surface no reason can be seen for the enrichment of one portion of...

The limits of the field may possibly be extended both northwest and southeast along the axis of folding, although the abandoned wells probably disprove some of the land. WHITTIER FIELD. Location. The productive territory of the Whittier Field lies on the southern slope of the Puente Hills, beginning within a mile of the town of Whittier and extending in a S. 65° E. direction about two and one half miles. It covers about...
