A fact from Midway-Sunset Oil Field appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 1 March 2008, and was viewed approximately 17 times (disclaimer)(check views). The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know
The opening paragraph says that the field is the "third largest" in the US, but "largest" here can refer to any one or more of a number of measures:
past cumulative production
current production rate
remaining recoverable reserves
estimated ultimate recovery
To which does the article refer? anyone know? Plazak (talk) 15:25, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure it was estimated ultimate recovery; I can check later (I'm the one who wrote the article). Unfortunately there is a competing claim for the Wilmington field, which also wants the third-largest spot; I was using government figures (either DOGGR or USGS) for oil field articles, and there are some different figures released by the petroleum industry.
