6. TitleDrilling Process

Description: Drilling for oil and gas is a complex process. The videos below provide basic knowledge of drilling process. Before drilling, the site must be carefully chosen. Then the land is prepared and access roads should also be built. A reserve pit must also be dug on the ground for the disposing of mud and rock. The next step is arranging the rig equipment. When the rig is complete set up, workers can begin the drilling operation.
