Excerpt from Possible Causes of the Decline of Oil Wells, and Suggested Methods of Prolonging Yield The purpose of the petroleum technology investigations that are being conducted by the Bureau of Mines is to aid in extending more efficient methods in the production, handling, refining, and marketing of petroleum and its products. This paper deals with one feature of greater efficiency in production, since the decline of individual oil wells is the immediate or direct factor in the general decline of pro duction throughout all fields that have been discovered to date and will be in the decline of all future fields. The efficiency of the recovery of petroleum from its underground sources can be measured by the length of time during which economic production can be sustained in individual wells or groups of wells, the object being to leave in the sand when the well is finally abandoned the least possible percentage of the original petroleum content. The methods that by prolonging the life of wells are helpful in extracting the maximum amount of oil at minimum cost are briefly summarized on the following pages.
