UFO News Article:

10 October 1970
(The Derrick, Oil City, Pennsylvania)


The whole article:
“Kevin Porter, 14, of 506 Kennerdell St., Rocky Grove, saw a mysterious object in the sky while delivering The Derrick at 5:30 a.m. Monday (5 October 1970). He described the object as being an orange colored ball before it got bigger and turned green. Tails developed on the sides of the object, and as the tails got longer, the UFO turned blue and looked like a comet he said. Then the mysterious object turned white and started to fade towards the east. Kevin said he wasn’t the only one to view the UFO. He said his mother saw it, and an employe of the Polk State School saw it.”

I am not saying this UFO incident occurred at or near an oil production facility. But the unknown object appears to have flown in the general direction of Oil City, Pennsylvania. Pennzoil Refinery was located in Oil City. Rocky Grove is located 10 kilometres (6 miles) south west of Oil City.

Throughout the years – a whole host of UFO incidents have occurred at or near oil/gas wells and oil/gas production installations/facilities around the world.

UFO News Article:
“Flying Saucer Hovers Over
Sasakwa Area, County Oilman Says”

12 January 1953
(The Seminole Producer, Oklahoma)


The whole article:
“Flying Saucers may be getting close to home for Seminole countians. Sunday afternoon (11 January 1953) about 4 p.m., Rex Moore, county oilman and his son Rex Jr., were looking up into the derrick of a well they are drilling near Sasakwa, and ‘saw a silvery object hovering up there at a very, very high altitude’ Moore reported Sunday evening.

Moore said the silvery object, looking like a ‘a shiny dime,’ hovered in the same spot for about 15 minutes, then sped away ‘at an almost unthinkable speed.’ Moore said one of the crew working on the well ‘named Nix’ also saw the object.

Moore said there were no vapor trails such as high-flying planes make, and he was confident it was not a plane. ‘It was sure something up there, and it was not an airplane’ Moore said emphatically.”

Sasakwa, Oklahoma, is located just to the south east of Oklahoma City.
