Oil Well and Tank

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

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.
