Drilling
Pumping
Once the crude oil is extracted
from the ground, it is taken to gathering
centres where the water, sand and salt are removed.
While there, natural gas is also separated from the crude oil
and then sent to a
booster station
.
The oil is then pumped to storage tanks before
being sent to either a refinery for proper processing
or to oil tankers for shipment elsewhere.
Onshore drilling
Onshore drilling is used for underground oil
reservoirs anywhere on dry land. Drilling on land
generally requires relatively low investments and
entails fewer risks.
