FRASER DELTA WILDCAT DRY; MORE DRILLING EYED
A consortium that came up dry with its first wildcat in British Columbia's Fraser River delta plans to try again next year. Conoco Canada Ltd., Calgary, drilled the first well to 5,580 ft before plugging it. Other interest owners are Dynamic Oil Ltd. and BC Gas Inc. The dry hole was the first of what the consortium had proposed as a three well program and was the first well drilled in the delta in 30 years. Earlier exploratory wells, chiefly seeking oil, had been drilled as early as 1904.
