The earth’s magnetism varies from place to place, and differences in the earth’s magnetic field can be caused either by (1) the differing nature of subterranean rock formations and (2) the interaction between charged particles from the sun and the magnetosphere. It is the former that is of interest in exploration of natural gas and petroleum because different underground formations and rock types all have a slightly different effect on the gravitational field that surrounds the earth. Early magnetometers were large and bulky and only able to survey a small area at a time.

This postwar pipeline construction boom lasted well into the ' ~ O Sand , allowed for the construction of thousands of miles of pipeline in America. Once the transportation of natural gas was possible, new uses for natural gas were discovered. These included using natural gas to heat homes and operate appliances such as water heaters and oven ranges. Industry began to use natural gas in manufacturing and processing plants. Also, natural gas was used to heat boilers used to generate electricity.

Conductor casing 2. Surface casing 3. Intermediate casing 4. Liner string 5. Production casing Conductor casing is installed first, usually prior to the arrival of the drilling rig. The hole for conductor casing is often drilled with a small auger drill, mounted on the back of a truck. Conductor casing, which is usually no more than 20 to 50 ft long, is installed to prevent the top of the well from caving in and to help in the process of circulating the drilling fluid up from the bottom of the well.
