Transcript Neither have all the localities been investigated in the Grozny region, in Daghestan, or in the Kuban oil district. Yet, in all those regions there are numerous localities of interest to prospectors. Prospecting in some of these localities has already justified our hopes. Thus, at the end of 1930 we located an oil gusher in the Black Mountains of the Benoisky region, 170-180 km. southeast of Grozny, emitting 400 tons daily from an oil bed which is quite new, namely, the lower part of the Maikop stratum lying considerably lower than the basic oil strata which feed the Old and New Grozny oilfields. The discovery of that fountain has not only made the Benoisky region prominent but has also heightened interest in the vast Black Mountain region, where a number of oil-bearing localities may he encountered. Even the old oil areas are now acquiring an added importance. We may discover there, at a more or less considerable depth, an extension of the Maikop oil- bearing stratum. A different view is now taken also concerning those districts in which previous prospecting had led us to be skeptical of success, e. g., the Sunzha, Tersk, and Gudermess regions. Prospecting operations in the northwestern part of the Caucasus and in the Uba oil regions also gave satisfactory results. Oil was discovered oozing from a well in the district of Varenikov station on the Adaguma River. We further expect the prospecting going on in Trans- Caucasus, in the Shirak steppe, to lead to the discovery of more or less extensive oil fields. Nor has the last word been said about the oil regions of Central Asia. Quite recently a well was located in the Shor-Su district spouting to the tune of 300 tons daily. Prospecting ha* not yet been completed in the deep strata of the Cheleken, Nefte-Dag, Boi-Dag and other islands, and none has yet been done in certain other localities with indubitable indications of oil, such as the Trans- 40
