Extraction and production of oil and gas
Crude oil, also known as black gold, is one of the most desirable natural resources. A wide range of products is created from it, starting from gas, petrol, kerosene, diesel oil and ending up on asphalt. The process of extracting oil is extremely expensive and time-consuming. It requires a number of measurements, tests, sampling and finally boring wells to confirm the presence of the raw material. Of course, there are a number of difficulties, such as porosity of the rock or the viscosity of the substrate itself. In the past, only 10% of the raw material was mined from the discovered deposit, leaving the rest underground. Thanks to modern mining technologies, the degree of recovery of crude oil and natural gas has increased to over 60%.
