Sample text

Oil prospectors had at last found a way to spot possible petroleum resources in places where no oil or gas seeped to the surface. Other salt domes were located, and even though success was sparse at first, many proved to be effec33 tive indicators of profitable drilling sites. Much ofsouthem Louisiana, however, was bayou, swamp, and marshland, where water obscured the surface, hiding salt dome features. Early use of seismography, which allowed trained engineers to peer into the earth and outline formations by sending shock or sound waves through the ground, helped resolve that problem.

Regardless of Giliasso's background in undersea salvage, the oil company "experts" knew better. So Captain Giliasso gave up his plan, ran his bar, and tended to other matters. News that the Texas Company had been trying to locate him because of his drilling barge concept was exciting. S. Arriving in 1933, he signed an exclusive agreement with the Texas Company to build and use the barge as well as license the idea to other companies. The completed revolutionary vessel, named the Giliasso in honor of the captain, was floated down the Ohio to the Mississippi, then to Lake Pelto, Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana.

Armed with the decision, additional suits were brought against Texas and Louisiana. Since precedence had been established, the legal route to the Supreme Court was faster. Texas, in an effort to complicate the case, based its position on historical fact. Prior to being admitted to the Union in 1845, the Republic of Texas had been a sovereign and independent nation, not part of the United States or Mexico. As a country, Texas had claimed that its territorial waters extended from the shore outward for a distance of three marine leagues (or roughly nine miles).
