Please clarify difference to man made=petroleum_well - especially fotos could be helpful. --katpatuka (talk) 06:44, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Apparently this tag might also be used for other types of wells (water?) if they have a pumping rig, though I don't know if it has ever been used in that way. Also, not all oil and gas wells require pumping. Sometime the gas or oil is produced due to natural pressure in the reservoir, other times a liquid such as water is re-injected into the reservoir to produce pressure. Some petroleum wells have just a fire-hydrant-like structure on top of the well head, called a "Christmas tree" in the industry, for the valves necessary to control flow of oil or gas.
