An oil well is a boring in the Earth that is designed to bring petroleum oil hydrocarbons to the surface.
Well drilling is the process of drilling a hole in the ground for the extraction of a natural resource such as ground water , brine , natural gas , or petroleum , for the injection of a fluid from surface to a subsurface reservoir or for subsurface formations evaluation or monitoring. Drilling for the exploration of the nature of the material underground for instance in search of metallic ore is best described as borehole drilling.
The earliest wells were water wells, shallow pits dug by hand in regions where the water table approached the surface, usually with masonry or wooden walls lining the interior to prevent collapse. Modern drilling techniques utilize long drill shafts, producing holes much narrower and deeper than could be produced by digging. Well drilling can be done either manually or mechanically and the nature of required equipment varies from extremely simple and cheap to very sophisticated.
The earliest record of well drilling dates from AD in China. The ancient Chinese developed advanced sinking wells and were the first civilization to use a well-drilling machine and to use bamboo well casings to keep the holes open.
In the modern era, the first roller cone patent was for the rotary rock bit and was issued to American businessman and inventor Howard Hughes Sr. It consisted of two interlocking cones. American businessman Walter Benona Sharp worked very closely with Hughes in developing the rock bit. The success of this bit led to the founding of the Sharp-Hughes Tool Company.
In two Hughes engineers, one of whom was Ralph Neuhaus, invented the tricone bit, which has three cones. The Hughes patent for the tricone bit lasted until , after which other companies made similar bits. The superior wear performance of polycrystalline diamond compact PDC bits gradually eroded the dominance of roller cone bits and early in this century PDC drill bit revenues overtook those of roller cone bits. The technology of both bit types has advanced significantly to provide improved durability and rate of penetration of the rock.
This has been driven by the economics of the industry, and by the change from the empirical approach of Hughes in the s, to modern day domain Finite Element codes for both the hydraulic and cutter placement software. The factors affecting drill bit selection include the type of geology and the capabilities of the rig. Due to the high number of wells that have been drilled, information from an adjacent well is most often used to make the appropriate selection.
Two different types of drill bits exist: fixed cutter and roller cone. A fixed cutter bit is one where there are no moving parts, but drilling occurs due to shearing, scraping or abrasion of the rock. Fixed cutter bits can be either polycrystalline diamond compact PDC or grit hotpressed inserts GHI or natural diamond.
Roller cone bits can be either tungsten carbide inserts TCI for harder formations or milled tooth MT for softer rock. The manufacturing process and composites used in each type of drill bit make them ideal for specific drilling situations.
Additional enhancements can be made to any bit to increase the effectiveness for almost any drilling situation. A major factor in drill bit selection is the type of formation to be drilled. The effectiveness of a drill bit varies by formation type. There are three types of formations: soft, medium and hard. A soft formation includes unconsolidated sands , clays , soft limestones , red beds and shale.
Medium formations include dolomites , limestones, and hard shale. Hard formations include hard shale, calcites, mudstones, cherty lime stones and hard and abrasive formations.
By , Slumberger, which acquired Smith in ,  became dominant in international markets thanks to packaging drill bits with their other tools and services, while Ulterra now owned by private equity firms Blackstone Energy Partners and American Securities continued a Stark growth trend, becoming the market share leader in drill bits in the US according to Spears Research  and Kimberlite Research.

Borehole stability technology includes chemical as well as mechanical methods to maintain a stable borehole, both during and after drilling. Drilling fluids range from water to oil to complex chemical systems with properties designed for specific site conditions to aid the drilling process. Drilling fluids perform the following functions: carrying cuttings out of the hole, cleaning the bit, cooling and lubricating the bit, providing buoyancy to the drill string, controlling formation fluid pressures, preventing formation damage, and providing borehole support and chemical stabilization.

The seven steps of oil and natural gas extraction
Theriot, Walter A.. Recent reports from the Soviet Union indicate that a fair degree of success is being attained with simultaneous drilling in certain fields. Although there is not a great deal of information available about the process, it is possible to determine the basic principles and some of the mechanical details involved.
Magnetic survey methods are used to locate the blowing wellbore when drilling a relief well. If no magnetic material is present in the openhole section of the blowing well, the last set casing shoe is the deepest possible intersection point. A deeper intersection point will increase the hydrostatic head, increase the frictional pressure drop and allow a lower density kill fluid to be used.

Dievendorff , H. The method of drilling deep wells into the earth for the recovery of oil andgas is beset with many hazards. This is especially true in the Ventura Avenuefield, which has the distinction of being the hardest field in California inwhich to complete a deep well. The hard, shifting and squeezing formations mustbe penetrated to great depths in the face of tremendous gas pressures. Thisfield presents problems that keep the operators abreast with all of the latestdevelopments in oil-field tools and machinery and in oil-well drillingpractices. Equipment must be strong, and adapted to deep-well drilling and thehandling of long heavy strings of casing. High-pressure sands require theutmost care and attention of the operators and no chances can be taken, since aserious blowout may cause the loss of a well that has cost months of labor andexpense.
- Это что за фрукт. Соши пожала плечами. - Открыть. Ну и ну, - ужаснулась. - Шестьсот сорок семь ссылок на уран, плутоний и атомные бомбы. Похоже, это то, что нам .
Что он делает здесь, в Испании, зачем спорит с этим психованным подростком. Беккер резким движением взял парня под мышки, приподнял и с силой посадил на столик. - Слушай, сопливый мозгляк. Убирайся отсюда немедленно, или я вырву эту булавку из твоих ноздрей и застегну ею твой поганый рот. Парень побелел. Беккер попридержал его еще минутку, потом отпустил.
