What is Oil & Gas?
Oil and Gas can be defined in chemistry as hydrocarbons. It is made up of hydrogen and carbon. The sun is shining over the earth since millions of years. Plants trees and micro-organisms were growing by absorbing solar energy. These living plants died after a small cycle and kept decaying. The decaying material percolated down the earth crust. With several cycles of movement, due to bacteria, chemical reactions, and earthquakes and so on, the decaying material turned in to oil and gas.

How is it coming from Oil-wells?
The oil and Gas formed by decaying organic matter seeps in the ground. This under ground oil is not there as pools or rivers. It is contained in porous rocks. The oil is trapped in layers of rock, with and without permeability at different depths and up to different lengths side ways. When the porosity is continuous, over a long range, it is called permeable rock and then the oil is easily mineable by vertical drilling. When the permeability is low, as in shell-gas of United States, advanced mining techniques are needed. Here comes the need for horizontal drilling and fracking or fracturing.

How to discover the presence of oil in a particular area?
A flat and dry surface of land may have mineable oils beneath the surface. Exploration geologists or geophysicists use seismology, a technique of understanding the behavior and echo of sound waves.

Vertical drilling for oil is very similar to drilling water well. However the oil is a little too far below the earth, say 3 kilometers (about 2 miles) or more. Water table can be upto 500 feet or so. The oil-well driller is trained to ensure, that the ground water does not get contaminated by oil or gas. After a vertical drilling, some horizontal fracturing is done to get good yield. Oil wells are drilled inland and offshore too.

Completing Oil & Gas Wells:
Lot of money is spent on drilling a well for oil. To minimize failure, exploration-geologists or geophysicists use seismology technique to determine the presence of mineable oil or gas. In spite of the study, the drilled well may not be good enough to be completed for commercial mining. On an average, only not many of the oil wells drilled are good enough for completion. With more studies and better equipments, the success rate keeps improving with time.
After the initial drilling, the well is assessed for being commercially viable by a few techniques. Different methods, known as logging, core samples testing, drill-stem tests and so on. If the indications are good, the well is completed for commercial exploitation. If not, then it is classed as dry-hole and abandoned after plugging.
Very few wells are good enough for commercial production with open end at the bottom. This is called open-hole completion. For the rest, we need to do cement encasing of production tube and perforate the casing by using explosive charges loaded on a perforating gun and/or other methods.
Drilling is not as simple as it may sound here. There can be a blow out leading to fire and explosion, where there is high pressure oil in the well being drilled. Several other minor and major problems keep cropping up. An experienced driller is heavily staffed to take care of all this problems and safety always takes the front seat.

Stimulating Oil & Gas Well Reservoirs:
Oil and Gas reside in the pores of the reservoir rock. There must be continuity or permeability in the pore-space, in order to be mineable. If the porosity or permeability is low, it is difficult to extract the oil. To increase the permeability, some techniques are used.
Fracturing splits open the reservoir rocks by use of fluids, pressure inside by powerful pumps. With high pressure pumps sand along with thick fracturing fluid is pumped in the well. The pressure is maintained until the fracture reaches the desired length. Suspended sand contained in thick water based fluid fills the fracture and then the pressure is released. After the fracture is complete, the viscosity of the fluid is decreased by oxidizing agents and the collapse of fracture is controlled by the sand particles.
The rock formation holding the oil is often made of calcium carbonate (Limestone) or other material. Hydrochloric acid is used to increase the fracture in Limestone and other acids are used to remove blocks in other types of rock matrix.

Oil and Gas Production from the Well:
There is always some dissolved-gas, under pressure in the reservoirs and this gas pushes the oil out after drilling. The gas is not enough to sustain the pushing for a long time. A lifting pump (there are some other methods too) is used to lift the oil to the ground.
Not all of the oil deposits can be recovered even with a pump. Here comes the need to use secondary recovery and tertiary recovery or enhanced recovery methods. These methods are water flooding, miscible processes, thermal process.
After mining, the oil is treated for removing sediments and water. A few preliminary processes are done before it is shipped to refinery.
