Raven A-1 Over the Years- Ken Bailey
RAVEN A-1 Over the years.
"Raven Park." That was an early name for the Rangely Basin. It was in the center of the Rangely dome into which the Raven Oil and Refining company sank its shallow wells during the early part of the Twentieth Century, and it was on the Raven Lease that the California Company (today, Chevron) sank the first well to successfully penetrate the Weber Sands oil zone a mile below the surface.
Here is a montage of Oil Geek's photos of this very famous well. Further captions are with the individual pictures.
Stay tuned for more on our resident Oil Geek's story and his fun memories that he looks back on in 2018. Do you remember growing up around oil rigs, what do you think you would have enjoyed?
