Among Pure's domestic oil and gas wells in 1958 were those around CabinPure's first big field was the Cabin Creek field, and the refinery there was built very early. There is a good aerial view of it in the Union 76 history book. And BTW, it has long lines of tank cars. Presumably they were to haul refinery product, not crude.
