Traces the development of the petroleum industry, showing contrasts between modern techniques and early methods of prospecting, drilling and refining oil. As a whole, it's a bit dry, but there are some wonderful industrial scenes. This film can be purchased on DVD and higher quality versions of the film can be purchased for stock footage purposes.
