Станок-качалка — один из элементов эксплуатации нефтедобывающих скважин штанговым насосом. Станок-качалка является важным видом нефтегазового оборудования и используется для механического привода к нефтяным скважинным штанговым (плунжерным) насосам. Часто используется, если не хватает забойного давления.

A pumpjack is the overground drive for a reciprocating piston pump installed in an oil well.

It is used to mechanically lift liquid out of the well if there is not enough bottom hole pressure for the liquid to flow all the way to the surface.

Very artistic. Lovely colours!

Hans Sterkendries, thank you for your comment! I tried to keep its range of colors of sunset that evening.

But there is a difference: in the picture - a feeling of warmth, but in reality the temperature about -40 C.

Sveta, спасибо за голос!

Кстати подходящий заголовок к снимку и по цветовой гамме, и по смыслу: Черное золото.

"Воронками изрытые поля

Не позабудь - и оглянись во гневе, -

Но нас, благословенная Земля,

Прости за то, что роемся во чреве."

This is a wonderful photo. We mostly consider oil-winning as dirty, this photo shows that there can be beauty even in the dirty things.

The colour gradient of the sky is fabulous! Very well done :-) L and Fav

Greetings, Wolfgang

Wolfgang, yes, you're right. Oil and gas production rather heavy and dirty work, but there are many things which can be viewed from another angle.

Here`s another example..

Thank you for your kind words and for visit my gallery!
