"It is a known condition and a proven fact that vast quantities of oil and gas have been lost by the infiltration and encroachment of water in producing sands. The encroachment of water in the pay horizons has not only trapped underground oil locally and caused a great loss of production, but unless the water problem was successfully combated the amount of water entering the pay may increase to the extent of flooding an entire field. Water in an oil well so increases the lifting cost that many wells are abondoned [sic] before the normal recovery is reached"--page 2.
