Oil’s dirty secret

If 68 years ago we were drilling for oil at 3,625 feet, in 2008 the big players within the industry were drilling an average of 5,964 feet. So how far do we have to drill to get a hold of black gold?

This infographic will focus on the Z-44 Chayvo Well because it is the deepest on the planet and highlight its depth in comparison to Burj Khalifa or Mount Everest. As half of the Global Fortune 500’s top ten listed companies produce oil, we’ll also look at the costs incurred to pull off the deepest ever oil extraction.
