The Bluhm #8 oil well in Northern Toole County, Montana was spudded April 9, 1930 and drilled to a final depth of -1,606 feet by C.E. Shaffer of the Imperial Petroleum Corp. This well became an orphan in the early 1990’s when the last operator, Cavalier Petroleum, filed for bankruptcy and the well formally became the responsibility of the State of Montana.
Adopted. Thank you, Fuyuki Fujiwara.
