An oil or gas well on land may be recognized by the wellhead and a "Christmas tree" assembly of valves and pipes on top, or it may have a pumpjack or similar pumping rig over it. Petroleum wells under water will usually have an production platform or offshore oil platform"above the surface of the water, though this may not be directly located over the wells.
How to map
Add substance=oil/gas to specify whether crude oil or natural gas are produced, if known.
