"The gas fields of north Webster Parish, Louisiana, as discussed in this paper, are embraced in an area 9 townships or 324 square miles in extent including Township 21 North, Ranges 9, 10, and 11 West; Township 22 North, Ranges 9, 10, and 11 West; and Township 23 North, Ranges 9, 10, and 11 West in north Webster Parish and extreme northeast Bossier Parish, Louisiana. The area is outlined in red on the accompanying map, on Page 2, which shows the relation of the three gas fields in the area to the other oil and gas fields of north Louisiana, south Arkansas, and east Texas.
This area is about 25 miles northeast of Shreveport, Louisiana, the center of the oil and gas industry in the region. Cotton Valley, the principal town of the vicinity under discussion, may be entered from Shreveport on the Louisiana and Arkansas Railroad and several dirt roads also afford entrance during dry weather"--Location, page 1.
