March 14, 1910

Lakeview Oil Company was drilling for oil in Kern County, California, expecting natural gas and a bit of oil. At 2440 feet pressurized oil blew through the well casing. And continued to do so for 544 days. The gusher was finally brought under control in September of 1911. Initial flow was 18,800 barrels per day, peaking at 90,000 per day. Total = 9,400,000 barrels (1,200,000 tons), of which less than half was recovered.

The event is known as The Lakeview Gusher.
