The Spindletop trip takes participants to the site of the “Lucas Gusher,” where on January 10th, 1901 in Beaumont, Texas, 100,000 barrels per day gushed from a salt dome formation. This discovery changed the economy of Texas and helped to usher in the modern petroleum age. The first six gushers in the Spindletop field produced more oil per day than the combined production of all the other producing fields in the world. The Lucas geyser, found at a depth of 1,139 feet, blew a stream of oil over 100 feet high until it was capped nine days later. Lucas and the Hamills finally controlled the geyser on January 19, when a huge pool of oil surrounded it. By that time, throngs of oilmen, speculators, and onlookers had already transformed the city of Beaumont. A new age was born.

This field trip focuses on the late Quaternary depositional systems of the upper Texas coast, including the Brazos River and its wave-dominated delta, the Oyster Creek meanderbelt, Follets Island, the San Luis Pass tidal delta, and Galveston Island. The trip will emphasize the physical processes associated with shaping these various depositional environments, and will discuss the stratigraphic occurrence of sand bodies associated with these coastal systems. There will be a focus on linking physical processes to the geological record, and also describing the sequence stratigraphic framework of the upper Texas coastal systems.
