The first commercial oil well in the United States was drilled in 1859 in Titusville, Pennsylvania by Edwin L. Drake. Drake, who was working as an agent for the Seneca Oil Company, used a steam-powered drilling rig to drill a well 69 feet deep. The well, known as the Drake Well, struck oil at a depth of just over 50 feet and began producing approximately 25 barrels of oil per day.
The success of the Drake Well marked the beginning of the modern oil industry, and led to a rapid expansion of oil exploration and production in the United States and around the world. The Drake Well is now a historic site and is open to the public as the Drake Well Museum, where visitors can learn more about the history of the oil industry and the impact of oil on modern society.
