This is good to see the American oilfield in the old day.

These are amazing photos of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010.
On 22 April, two days after the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig, an oil leak was discovered when an oil slick began to spread at the former rig site.
The present downturn has made large portions of us question whether the oil industry is dying. The quantity of oil and gas jobs lost amid this downturn is assessed to be between 400,000 – 500,000 around the world. In the meantime the industry faces existential dangers from preservationists, elective energy and electric cars.
Here, we examine what is probably going to happen, and what you ought to do about it.
Change is surrounding us, in truth a large number of the suspicions that we experienced childhood with, that our folks showed us, are turning out to not be valid for us by any means. For instance:
- There are no ‘jobs forever’ any longer, employer stability is a deception.
- Education is being seen less as an early life occasion, and to a greater extent a deep rooted attempt.
- The normal individual is encountering more continuous employment changes, and profession changes as well.
- Technological propels undermine many jobs, and request that we investigate our ability sets and future prospects.
So instead of watching the oil cost, and pondering when the recuperation will begin (for us), we have to search internally, at things that we can control. Some of these things incorporate wellbeing, individual funds, preparing and proceeded with education. Fortunately, we can without much of a stretch discover the data that we require on the web. The conundrum is that these days we have less control of our professional stability, and more control of our lives when all is said in done.
A hefty portion of the more youthful oil and gas specialists are finding the need to take a gander at different businesses, not knowing when they may have the capacity to return. Continue reading
A multilateral well is a well with two or more laterals (horizontal, vertical, or deviated) drilled from a main mother well. This allows one well to produce from several reservoirs. Multilateral wells are suitable for complex geology where drilling more new wells to penetrate to those reservoirs is not economical. Lateral sections may be used to produce from a separated section in depleted, faulted, layered and heavy oil reservoirs.

Petroleum engineering has been developed since the beginning of the 19th Century. The following images demonstrates petroleum technology milestone from 1848 – 1959. This is the first part of this series and more to come.
