DescriptionThis publication has been prepared to replace Bulletins No. 65, "Oil and Its Geology," No. 69, "Prospecting for Petroleum," and No. 116, "Petroleum," issued by the Arizona Bureau of Mines a decade or more ago, all of which have been out of print for some time. It is essentially a reprint of Bulletin No. 116, but Part II has been entirely rewritten. Part I has been abstracted, with numerous modifications, from an address delivered many years ago at El Paso, Texas, which was published in the Arizona Mining Journal, No attempt has been made to write a manual for petroleum geologists; in fact, the end sought was merely to impress the general public with the fact that the accumulation and distribution of petroleum are governed by certain fairly well understood, but generally unknown or unappreciated, laws which only a welltrained and experienced geologist can satisfactorily apply. It was, therefore. deemed unnecessary and even undesirable to go into details or to discuss exceptions to and deviations from the general statements made. The reader who wishes to know "the whole story" is directed to the books on petroleum listed in the Bibliography. 50 p.
