  The discovery of the Spindletop geyser in drove huge growth in the oil industry. Within a year, more than 1, oil companies had been chartered, and oil became the dominant fuel of . Oil Fields. Oil fields are found in four main regions in northern Iraq: the principal fields of the Kirkuk area (Kirkuk, Bai Hassan Jambur and Pulkhana), the fields NNW of Mosul (Ain Zalah and Butmah), a group west of Kirkuk (Kaiyarah, Najmah, Jawan and Kasab) and a fourth grouping in the southern part of the embayment (Naft Khaneh). This list of oil fields includes some major oil fields of the past and present.. The list is incomplete; there are more t oil and gas fields of all sizes in the world. However, 94% of known oil is concentrated in fewer than giant and major fields. Most of the world's largest oilfields are located in the Middle East, but there are also supergiant (>10 billion bbls) oilfields in. The Texas oil boom, sometimes called the gusher age, was a period of dramatic change and economic growth in the U.S. state of Texas during the early 20th century that began with the discovery of a large petroleum reserve near Beaumont, find was unprecedented in its size (worldwide) and ushered in an age of rapid regional development and industrialization that has few parallels in U.S.

The East Texas Oil Field is a large oil and gas field in east ng , acres (57, ha) and parts of five counties, and hav historic and active oil wells, it is the second-largest oil field in the United States outside Alaska, and first in total volume of oil recovered since its discovery in Over billion barrels of oil have been produced from it to-date. "It's Scotland's oil" was a widely publicised political slogan used by the Scottish National Party (SNP) during the s in making their economic case for Scottish independence. It was argued that the discovery of North Sea oil off the coast of Scotland, and the revenue that it created would not benefit Scotland to any significant degree.

In , oil was discovered west of Lubbock in the Duggan Field in Cochran County. Originally Duggan was thought to be one of two fields, it and the adjacent Slaughter Field, but in the Railroad Commission ruled that the two produced from one reservoir and called both areas Slaughter.

An intended drinking water well at Oil Springs, Ontario found oil in , a year before the Drake well, but it had not been drilled for oil. Historians have noted that the importance of the Drake well was not in being the first well to produce oil, but in attracting the first great wave of investment in oil drilling, refining, and marketing. By , Oregon Basin, Elk Basin and Grass Creek were still among the top 25 oil fields in Wyoming. Oregon Basin led the state in production with 9 million barrels, exceeding even the historic mega-producer, Salt Creek, for that year—ranked third below Hartzog Draw, an oil field about 35 miles southwest of Gillette, Wyo., off Highway   It should be no surprise that old oil fields often yield new supplies. It is a long-standing, but hard to measure, phenomenon. Most oil reserves added every year are due to revisions and. top oil fields had % of that total, or billion barrels of proved reserves. In , the United States had billion barrels of crude oil and lease condensate proved reserves, and its top U.S. oil fields had % of that total, or billion barrels of proved reserves (Table 1).
