Abstract

The Annual Summaries of Oil and Gas Tests in Iowa are in reality a condensed history of oil drilling in Iowa. The tabulation includes the date each test was drilled, the name of the operator, the geologic section penetrated, and comments concerning presence of oil shows. Even though all of these tests are classified as oil tests, some are really the rankest of 'wildcats." In only a small percentage of these tests was the selection of the well site based on geologic or geophysical data.
