Transcription"Pumping wells are becoming more common in Beaver Lodge and Tioga fields as marginal wells with low pressure cease to flow. At year's end six wells were on the pump. Pictured is Amerada Petroleum Corp's No. 2 Peter Wallentinson in Beaver Lodge. Other pumpers are Amerada's No. 2 Borstad-Weflen in Tioga field, the Peter Larson Unit 1, No. 1 Sophie Herfindahl, E. C. Davidson A-1, all in Beaver Lodge, and the No. 1 Clifford Rice in the East Tioga pool. Most of the wells were poor producers from the start but one, the No. 2 Borstad-Weflen, was completed last July for a good flow of 456 barrels of oil per day, with no water. However, the well is on the southwest edge of Tioga field, and declined rapidly as it started to make water. It also has a thin pay section. The pumping wells make enough gas to operate the engines, which are designed so they can use the gas without treatment to remove hydrogen sulphide." - caption with image published in The Fargo Forum, January 10, 1954, p. 44.
