There seems to be nothing
startling to report this week in
the oil activities around Carter-
However, things are moving a-
long nicely and everybody is
waiting for something real in-
teresting to happen. The Batch-
elor well is still hammering a-
way and have a good showing
of gas. They are down about
3600 feet. The Turjnan Oil Co.
well in Section 4, just southwest
of Carter, is dulling night and
day and are down about 400 feet.
They had a little trouble last
week by getting some of their
tools in the well but were only a
short while fibbing them out.
The Stratten well on the Bob
Kelley farm southeast of Carter
is drilling this week after being
unavoidable delayed a few days.
THe Kadane test on the Pat
McGee farm southeast of Carter
will be ready in a few days to
begin drilling. They have an
up to-date rotary rig installed
and now have an extra boiler on
the ground, so they will not lose
any time in going down when
they start. Mr. Kadane un-
derstands the oil drilling busi-
ness and the people are geing to
watch this test closely. Their
derrick, that was blown down in
the rec entstormshasbeenrebuilt
and everything will soon be
ready for drilling.
