Transcript Emba for 20 years. It is only recently that we have begun to take timid steps trying to branch out beyond the localities now worked and to look for oil over more extended areas. There are a great many places left to look for oil; we certainly have no less oilfields than they have in the U.S.A. To begin with, the territory of the Caucasus is but sparsely explored. Even in the vicinity of the old oilfields on the Apsheron Peninsula there are areas still waiting for more thoroughgoing investigation that has been done hitherto, e. g., the district between Binagada and the Sula-Tepe mountain. The vast regions of the Kabristan pastures, the Salyan steppe, the Kharamin and Ajikabul mountain ranges—all these localities have yet to be prospected. Oil fumes are met with most anywhere in those parts, while the structure of the soil is favourable. A little prospecting would at once extend our oil field appreciably. We have discovered the Neftechal oilfield at the mouth of the Kura River, where the wells drilled yielded a steady flow of 120 to 150 tons daily, and the industrial importance of the new Puta-Kyorgez oil region is also conceded. In the heart of the Kabristan pastures we obtained industrial oil near the Chail-Dag mountain. Close to the famous Surakhan oil wells we discovered the new rich oilfield of Kara-Chkhur with gushers spouting a thousand tons a day. All the oil we obtain in the Baku region conies from the so-called productive section of the late Pliocene age. while the presence of abundant oil in the deeper layers of the Tertiary and in the still lower Mesozoic has been amply demonstrated. All these lower strata await investigation. All this means that there are scores of oil deposits that have not yet been investigated within the boundaries of the Baku region, on the Apsheron Peninsula, on the Kabristan pastures, in the Ajikabul region, and in the Salyan steppe. 39
