How fast can an oil well be drilled?

There is no standard time to drill a well. It depends on a number of factors. An important factor is depth. A well drilled on land with an objective of the heavy oil sands in Bakersfield, California, may be drilled tp a depth of less than 200 ft, and be completed in less than a week. A well drilled offshore, Gulf of Mexico may take 2 - 3 months with target sands 10,000 to 12,000 ft below the sea floor. If production tests are conducted, this may take several more weeks.

How much oil does Philippines produce?

As of 2011, Philippines Malampaya Oilfields is proven to contain 3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, 40 million barrels of recoverable oil fueling the 2700 MW power plant in Batangas, and 85 million barrels of condensate.

Waters surrounding Palawan, southwest island off Manila, hold substantial oil reserves.

Galoc oilfields, the newest find, produces 17,000 to 20,000 barrels of crude oil a day.

Initial seismic and hydrocarbon surveys conducted early 2009 for the Marantao Petroleum Field showed oil reserve estimate at one billion barrels.

The Philippine government awarded, as of 2008, 33 active petroleum service contracts to oil and gas exploration companies.

How detect gas kick in oil well?

A gas kick will cause the annular surface pressure to increase due to the reduced hydrostatic head in the annulus caused by the inflowing gas having a lower density than the displaced drilling mud. Another way to detect a kick is by an increase in mud tank volume. Formation fluids flowing into the wellbore will increase the annular flow rate while the drill pipe flow rate remains the same. This will cause a build-up of mud in the mud storage tanks.

What is a frac tank?

A frac tank is used to hold water, or a proppant, when a well is being fractured. The material is held in a frac tank and connected by a hose or pipeline to a pump that will flow it down the wellbore at a high pressure to push open the formation and the proppant is used to keep it open.

21,000-gallon tank, 500 Barrels, for on-site storage of fluids. Also known as: mobile storage tank, portable tank, VE Tank, Baker Tank, Rhino Tank, Rain-for-Rent Tank, E-Tank

Frac tank is basically a generic term for mobile steel storage tanks used to hold liquids. Typically used for fracing wells in the oil and gas industry, a frac tank may also be used to store any liquids like run-off water, diesel fuel, glycol, oils, waste products, etc. They are usually 21,000 gallon single wall steel tanks, but are also offered as double wall tanks by Gaurav Associates of India, AFC Tanks, VE Enterprises and Truck Center of Fort Worth Inc. These tanks have a single rear axle to be moved with a winch truck or tractor when empty. The major manufacturers of frac tanks are Gaurav Associates, AFC Tanks, VE Enterprises, Dragon, and Wichita. Alpha Tanks and VE Enterprises make heated Frac Tanks that may be used in cold climates where regular Frac Tanks freeze. Heated water also improves the effectiveness of the fracturing process.

What do you call it when an oil well strikes oil?

If one is referring to the traditional idea of an oil well gushing all over the place, according to the Dictionary of Petroleum Terms, any uncontrollable flood of oil, gas, and sediments that rush out of an oil pipe, which is something quite frowned upon, is properly called a blowout. In the reality of modern drilling, where the pressure used to remove the oil is more often than not provided artificially, and the goal is to carefully control any and all movement of the oil, any newly flowing well is now simply said to be in a state called "being completed." A completed hole then goes into production.

The first successful oil was drilled in?

The first oil well was drilled by Edwin Drake in Titusville, Pennsylvania. At a depth of only 69 feet (21 meters), Drake struck oil, and his well began to produce about thirty barrels of oil a day. In the years that followed, hundreds of wells were drilled in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, and Indiana.
