Excerpt from Report on the Petroleum Districts: Situated on the Red Sea Coast

Great hopes were raised in consequence of the finding of this oil. M. De Bay's N o 1 still produces a small quantity of oil. I have not been able to procure any data as to the strata through which his borings were made, but as this Well is only 41 feet distant from one bored later by the American borers to a depth of more than 400 feet, the strata through which the boring tool passed were probably of a similar character, to those shown at similar depths, in well N o l in the annexed diagram. I have no doubt that the flow of oil and gas in M. De Bay's well, was caused by the drilling tool piercing a crevice in the rock, which contained a certain quantity of petroleum and gas, which the gas forced up to the surface. Such occurrences are very common in boring for petroleum, and raise the hopes of the drillers without really much cause. In Russia I have known what proved to be a most unsatisfactory well suddenly while being bored to throw up a column of petroleum to the amount of gallons and then stop, the well never producing anything more and proving a failure.
