Texas Oil Fields Drilling Wells Rig Derrick 1950S Vintage Film Home Movie 1266

Texas Oil Fields Drilling Wells RIG Derrick 1950s Vintage Film Home Movie OIL WELL is a general term for any boring through the earth's surface that is designed to find and acquire petroleum oil hydrocarbons. Usually some natural gas is produced along with the oil. A well that is designed to produce mainly or only gas may be termed a gas well. An OIL FIELD is a region with an abundance of oil wells extracting petroleum (crude oil) from below ground. Because the oil reservoirs typically extend over a large area, possibly several hundred kilometers across, full exploitation entails multiple wells scattered across the area. In addition, there may be exploratory wells probing the edges, pipelines to transport the oil elsewhere, and support facilities.
