This boiler used to sit in the Claremont Oil Lease, known as Section 24-D. The boiler was used to create steam to inject into the ground to make the pumping of crude oil easier. In the early 1960s the boiler was moved onto the Polvadero Lease to be used as an after burner. This was to burn excess gas being released from the nearby gas plant.

We gratefully acknowledge the assistance of the many who helped with the project.
