ABSTRACT
The article discusses various issues related to the oil wells in the United States. People drilled into the ground mainly to find water in the early United States. The first well drilled for the sole purpose of finding oil was the Drake Well, named after oil well driller Edwin L. Drake. A oil well was drilled in California in 1879 and another in 1887 in Texas.
