Tests are considered field wells if located less than \ mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled h to lh miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over lh miles from producti3n, usually 
discover new pools if successful, Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells t Production figures through February 1972 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies., The figures for March and April 1972 are estimated,,

Tests are considered field wells if located less than h mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled h to lh miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over lh miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the bodv of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through April 19 72 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figure for May 1972 is estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than h mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled ^ to 1^ miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over lh miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through May 19 72 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figure for June 1972 is estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than \ mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled % to 1% miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over \\ miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through June 1972 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figures for July and August 1972 are estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than % mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled % to 1% miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over 1% miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through July 1972 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figures for August and September 1972 are 
estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than % mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled % to 1% miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over 1% miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through September 1972 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figure for October 1972 is estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than \ mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled % to \\ miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over 1% miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through September 1972 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figures for October and November 1972 are 
estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than \ mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled % to 1% miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over 1% miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through November 1972 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figure for December 1972 is estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than \ mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled % to \\ miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over 1% miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through December 1972 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figure for January 1973 is estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than % mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled \ to 1% miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over \\ miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through December 1972 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figures for January and February 1973 are 
estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than \ mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled \ to 1% miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over \\ miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through February 1973 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figure for March 1973 is estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than \ mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled % to \\ miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over 1% miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through February 1973 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figure for March 1973 is estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than % mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled \ to \\ miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over 1% miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through April 1973 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figure for May 1973 is estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than \ mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled \ to Ik miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over \\ miles from production, usually 
discover new pools if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through April 1973 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figures for May and June 1973 are estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than J>-mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled \ to Ik miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over 1% miles from production, usually 
discover new fields if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through May 1973 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figures for June and July 1973 are estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than %-mile from proc''icing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled k to 1% miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over 1% miles from production, usually 
discover new fields if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through June 1973 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figures for July and August 1973 are estimated.

WELL SAMPLE LIBRARY 



A bi-monthly list of current additions to the well sample library at the Geological 
Survey is available, at no charge, upon request. 



WELL RECORDS 

The Survey's collection of well logs contains records on more than 180,000 wells 
and test holes in the State of Illinois, and includes more than 70,000 geophysical 
logs. These records are available for public use, without charge, in our 
Geological Records Section. Driller's logs and sample studies will be loaned for 
a ten-day period.

Information Corporation and Scout Check, Inc., plus nonconfidential information in 
the files of the Illinois State Geological Survey. 



OIL AND GAS DEVELOPMENT MAPS 

Available from the Illinois State Geological Survey, Natural Resources 
Building, Urbana, Illinois. 

The maps (blue- line print maps, revised semiannually) show oil, gas, 
and dry abandoned wells, on a base noting towns, main roads, county, town- 
ship, and section lines. Scale two inches to the mile. Price 60 cents each,

Tests are considered field wells if located less than %-mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled % to Xh miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over Ik miles from production, usually 
discover new fields if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through July 1973 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figures for August and September 1973 are 
estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than %-mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled \ to 1% miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over \\ miles from production, usually 
discover new fields if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through July 1973 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figures for August, September, and October 
1973 are estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than %-mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled % to 1% miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over \\ miles from production, usually 
discover new fields if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through August 1973 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figures for September, October, and November 
1973 are estimated.

Tests are considered field wells if located less than %-mile from producing 
well. Near wildcats are drilled \ to 1% miles from production and if successful are 
usually called extensions. Far wildcats, over 1% miles from production, usually 
discover new fields if successful. Reworked wells listed in the body of the report 
are included in this table only if they are former dry holes converted to producing 
wells. Production figures through October 1973 are from reports received directly 
from crude gathering companies. The figures for November and December 1973 are 
estimated .
