Product Description

Initial results of this study confirm the presence of two different oil compositions at the Teapot Dome field, 1) oils from Cretaceous reservoirs and 2) oil from the Pennsylvanian Tensleep Sandstone reservoir. Cretaceous oils are less mature, show more evidence of secondary biodegradation and have a mixed terrestrial and marine kerogen source. Moreover, Cretaceous oils can be separated into three different groups, Upper Cretaceous sandstone reservoirs, Upper Cretaceous shale reservoirs, and lower Cretaceous Sandstone reservoirs. The Upper Cretaceous sandstone reservoirs, the Shannon Sandstone and the Second and Third Wall Creek Sands show differences related to gas production, gas-reinjection effects and steam flood effects. The Pennsylvanian Tensleep oil is more mature, less biodegraded, has higher a sulfur content, shows evidence of water washing, and has a marine kerogen source.

Hydrocarbon degradation in the Cretaceous sandstone reservoirs varies along the length of the highly fractured Teapot Dome anticlinal structure--the main trap for hydrocarbons in the Teapot Dome field--which is divided into two domes by an east-west trending fault system. The least degraded samples occur in the southern dome, where reservoirs are deeper and in general, the most degraded are in the northern dome where stratigraphically equivalent reservoirs are shallower. The Pennsylvanian Tensleep oil does not show any variation between the Teapot Dome field and the adjacent Salt Creek field to the north.

Molecular and isotopic composition of gases indicates thermogenic gases may have been altered by two different microbial processes, methanogenesis and secondary bacterial alteration. Also, there are two different types of ozocerite, with possibly two different histories of emplacement.


The Strange Deaths of President Harding: Tea Pot Dome & Veteran's Bureau Scandals (1996)

Genetic testing confirms Harding's daughter - Marion Star

Nan Britton’s claims about former President Warren G. Harding being the father of her child now have scientific backing. Nearly a century after the woman alleged that the president from Marion fathered her a daughter, genealogists confirm that Britton’s daughter, Elizabeth Ann Blaesing, was Harding’s biological child, the New York Times reported Wednesday. The tests, said the newspaper, “have solved one of the enduring mysteries of presidential history and offer new insights into the secret life of America’s 29th president. Harding was elected president, serving from March 4, 1921 until his death on Aug. Peter Harding told the Times, “It’s sort of Shakespearean and operatic. Harding, a grandnephew of the president and one of those who instigated the DNA testing that confirmed the relationship to Britton’s offspring. Britton, who was 31 years younger than Harding, had a harder time proving her relationship when she revealed it after his death because she had destroyed her own letters with him at his request and because his family insisted he was sterile, the... Harding was born Nov. Except when political service took him elsewhere, he lived in rural Ohio all his life. By age 20, he settled in Marion and bought The Marion Star, building it into a successful newspaper. In 1899, he was elected to the Ohio State Senate, and after four years there successfully ran for lieutenant governor. He was defeated for governor in 1910, but was elected to the Senate in 1914. Harding is credited with signing the first federal child welfare program, cutting the unemployment rate in half through higher tariffs and establishing the Veterans... However, his administration endured failure as well, most notably the Teapot Dome Scandal. Secretary of the Interior Albert Fall secretly sold the right to oil reserves in Teapot Dome, Wyoming, and two other locations in California to private oil companies at low rates without competitive bidding. Locally, The Warren G. Harding Symposium is held each summer and the city boasts the Harding Home and Harding Memorial. Harding and his future wife, Florence, designed the Queen Anne Style house in 1890, a year before their marriage. They were married there and lived there for 30 years before his election to the presidency. Source: www.marionstar.com

Teapot Dome Gas Station-Zillah, WA
Teapot Dome Gas Station-Zillah, WA
This little gas station was built in 1922, a commentary on the Teapot Dome scandal involving President Harding and a federal petroleum reserve in Wyoming. Said to be the oldest gas station in use in the country (No longer in use), it survived partially because it was moved years ago, to be closer to the interstate. Neat!
