  • Description or summary of the book: Excerpt from Petroleum and Natural Gas in New York State, Vol. 16: A Paper Read Before the American Institute of Mining Engineers, Duluth Meeting, July, 1887; Revised to June, 1888 The occurrence of oil and gas-springs in the State of New York has been a fact of historical record since 1627, when the existence of the Cuba oil-spring was first recorded. The utilization of natural gas at Fredonia in 1821 attracted the attention of the public to the possibility of obtaining an illuminating gas by digging and drilling into the rocks. No active search was made, however, for oil or gas by the drilling of wells until after the discovery of commercial oil in Pennsylvania in 1859. In 1862 a well was drilled at Bradford, mckean County, Penn sylvania, but a few miles south of the New York state line, to the depth of 200 feet, in search of the oil-sand which had been found at Titusville, Oil City, and at other points in Western Pennsylvania. Immediately subsequent to this, other wells were drilled in search. Of petroleum at a number of points in New York, particularly in the western part of the State. Some explorations have been made, in an unsystematic way, for oil ever since, explorers being much encouraged in their search by the development of the Allegany oil-district in 1879 and 1880. Immediately subsequent to the gen eral utilization of natural gas in Pennsylvania in 1882 and 1883, a new interest was taken in the drilling of exploration wells, more particularly in search of gas. The principal object of this paper is to publish a record of the explorations which have been made up to date for oil and gas in the State. [have not mentioned every well which has been drilled, but only the more important ones with which I am familiar. The record of these wells have a two-fold value, first, to the practical geologist and well-driller, to enable him to deduce conclusions as to the possibility of getting natural gas in special localities, and to aid in further explorations; and second, to the technical geologist.
