Oil is obtained by boring. The wells so produced are similar to artesian wells, except in the material discharged. In many instances the oil issues in powerful streams, which continue to flow for considerable periods of time. The crude oil is stored in huge tanks, from which it is transferred to barrels or iron tanks for transportation.

An oil well is a general term for any boring through the Earth's surface designed to find and produce petroleum oil hydrocarbons. Usually some natural gas is produced along with the oil, and a well designed to produce mainly or only gas may be termed a gas well. If boring happens to penetrate the higher portion the gas rushes forth with greater or less violence and pesisstence.
