First well in Romania

First well in Romania, dug by mechanical drilling and lining the wooden hoe type drill, at a depth of 150 m were made in 1861.
The probe is located between the cities and Comanesti Tg.Ocna.
In 1857, Romania became the first country in the world that extracts oil in commercial quantities: 275 tonnes annually.
At first, he continued, were digging the graves of the degraded oil is extracted, to reach richer in volatile substances used against scab or axle lubrication.
Peasants who had land from where they extract the crude oil extracted received 14% of production.
Had become so rich that it is said that gave the horses to drink champagne.
Now only drink champagne on special occasions ... 

Romania is a tourist attraction worth visiting.

  1. That's funny about the horses, but I hope you get no oil spills!

    Romania looks somewhat like Moldova to me -- I have been in Moldova a lot (just next door, huh?). That's probably why I can read Romanian okay -- the languages are pretty much the same.

  2. Very interesting :-)
    Have a wonderful sunday (@^.^@)
