oil wells

Oil wells are an increasingly sophisticated method of extracting crude oil from the earth’s surface and transporting it to refineries for processing.

In most cases, they involve drilling deep vertical or horizontal wells into the earth’s crust below where oil is believed to be concentrated, and then inserting various pumps and other machinery to draw out the oil, as well as related contaminants.

This operation requires intense infrastructure in terms of personnel, equipment, maintenance, and safety measures that must take into account the presence of dangerous gasses coming from hidden channels extracted with the crude.

While these projects can be expensive and controversial for their environmental consequences — such as toxic chemical run-off and disruption of fish populations — there is no denying that precision-extracted oil has been a crucial feedstock for modern industry since its discovery.
