The occurrence of abnormal salt-water flows, as well as abnormal gas pressures, has been more common on the Gulf Coast in the last few years, than at any other time in the history of Gulf Coast drilling. This increase in frequency of abnormal well pressures may be attributed to the present trend of deeper drilling depths. In general, most abnormal pressures on the Gulf Coast occur below depths of 7,500 feet, the exceptions being found in erratic sands on the penetrating type salt domes.
