Signal Drilling Co. began rigging up this week on the Phillip* Petroleum Co.'s No. 1 Barackar, offset to the Lough No. 3, best well In the field to data. The new well, within the field borders, is in Sec 14. MN-47C. Regarding the Toavs well Kane said "although geologists can predict the possibility ot structural features being present within a given area, presence of porous zones within the various formations cannot be determined until tapped by the drill bit "The unfortunate situation surrounding the Ti.le Creek area Is rapid change in the type of rock encountered and lack of porosity. You must find the exact strati-graphic conditions together with this structural feature to obtain commercial production. The biggest question, however. Is, when you find the right conditions, does the porosity contain water or oil? Only by drilling the well is this answer obtained." In wells just drilled, potential productive zones in the Toavs well carried water while in the Shell well the same zone was dense and tight. Tests token within the Shell well recovered only drilling mud. Some encouragement was noted in the Shell well, where a very slight show of oil was noted In the Madison-Mission Canyon formation. Tests taken of this zone however revealed it to be of noncommercial value. At the pre-ent time no further plans have been announced by Shell for further activity in this area. The rig will be stacked out awaiting a new location. Near Vida the Pur* Oil Co.'s No. 1 Leuenberger Is drilling below 7.900.
