Rare separately published map of Texas, issued by the Oil & Gas Journal in April 1938.

The map provides a detailed snapshot of the oil business in 1938.  The map utilizes the Texas Railroad Commission map as a template, with oil and gas data current to March 15, 1938.

The map shows Oil Pipelines, Gas Pipelines, Gas Fields, Oil Fields, Producing Salt Domes, and Refineries.

At the upper left is the large "Generalized Geological Sections of Texas" which locates many formations including those containing oil and gas as well as those to be Known, Probable or Possible "Pay Zones." The huge index to Texas' oil and gas fields lists over 500 fields alphabetically.

The map is white with black printing to indicate counties and major towns. All oil-related information is accomplished with colorful overprinting.
