 Venezuela oil field seizures cause jitters - Boston.com
Venezuela has seized control of oil fields from France's Total SA and Italy's Eni SPA in a show of force against those resisting President Hugo Chavez's efforts to pry more profits from the industry at a time of high oil prices.
Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez announced Monday that state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela SA, or PDVSA, had taken control of Total's Jusepin field and Eni's Dacion field, which together produced 115,000 barrels a day, after the two companies refused to turn operations over to state-controlled joint ventures.
The seized properties were among 32 oil fields the government has reclaimed from private companies by voiding their oil-pumping contracts and replacing them with so-called "mixed companies" that give PDVSA a 60 percent to 80 percent stake and sharply raise royalties and taxes, among other measures.

By 1897 it was evident that commercial quantities of oil could be produced in the area, and development of the field moved to the east, northeast, and southeast of the original site.
Waste in the field resulted in the passage on March 29, 1899, of the first Texas statutory regulation of the drilling, casing, plugging, and abandoning of oil and gas wells to end irresponsible producing and dumping.

Oil was moving across the ground throughout the area and the fire would flash across the ground when it reached some fire or ignition source.
As historians of the oil business know, the euphoria of discovery was followed by a few years of good profits, then a decade of disappointment: a national financial slump, overproduction with a resulting stagnant market, and control of both the oil market and railroad cars by the "big boys," mostly Standard Oil and Southern Pacific.

Their supplies, primarily sulfuric acid, nitric acid, and glycerin oil, were shipped in by train, delivered by wagon, and later trucked to the oil field site.
By the 1950s, shooters were largely a topic of oil field tales, having been replaced by more effective and safer ways of getting more oil out of the ground.
The surviving shooters found safer jobs in the oil patch, worked occasionally to free stuck casing in wells, and recalled their close calls and near-misses with soup, torpedoes, and bombs.

The history of oil and gas development in the state of Indiana officially began in the mid-1800s with the early settlers' practice of drilling for salt water.
Salt was a necessity for the preservation of foodstuffs and critical to the early state's agricultural industry; shallow wells were sunk in many parts of the state to obtain salt water that could be evaporated to produce salt.
Unlike the single field of northern Indiana that produced from a single reservoir, these new discoveries produced from many smaller fields and a variety of different reservoirs at different depths.

Within a year, three separate companies were drilling, and the Florence oil field was on its way to fame and a long history of production, eventually involving both the Continental Oil Company and the Standard Oil Company.
The wells in the Florence field are pumped and generally only yield a few barrels per day, with only 2,000 to 3,000 barrels of oil produced in their lifetime.
What makes the Florence field so unique is that the oil it produced came from fractures found in Pierre Shale at the structural bottom of the Canon City Embayment.
