Example text

An engraving with the text shows a gushing spring and people filling vessels from it. This book also explains some of the uses of petroleum. The oil was used to cleanse an ulceration and heal old wounds. It was also used as a balm for burns and bruises. The shell of a filbert, or hazelnut, was filled with a little petroleum and downed with a goblet of warm beer for colds or internal problems. Dog bites and stings by a poisonous animal were treated by rubbing the wound or bite with petroleum. It was used for many ills, including coughs, bronchitis, pulmonary congestion, cramp, gout, rheumatism, and eye strain.

The oil is ignited at the bottom of one well, and the fire is maintained by forcing compressed air through the hole. This heat drives the oil through the rocks into the surrounding wells. Clogging by wax or asphalt can block the oil flow. New channels may be opened by controlled explosions of nitroglycerine or by pumping in strong acids. Secondary Recovery After a field ceases to produce by natural flow and by pumping, it can be repressured by injecting air or natural gas from which the gasoline content has been removed.

Oil and gas reach the surface as a frothy mixture which is sent to a separation tank. The oil is then pumped into storage tanks, and the gas is treated in natural gasoline plants for the removal of any remaining liquids. The dry gas is used in several ways. Some is used to supply power in the oil field or is pumped back to maintain pressure in the reservoir. The balance is sold or burned off. Natural gas recovery has increased importance, since it is used extensively in the manufacture of chemicals and as a source of gas in the home.
