Wastewater Wells - A vertical pipe in the ground into which water, other liquids, or gases are pumped or allowed to flow.
Well Bore - This is the entire length of hole that the drill makes in the ground; there is a great deal of engineering software for the design and casing of a well bore.
Well Casing - Steel or cement containment that is installed on the inside of the well bore intended to keep gas or oil from seeping out of the wells into the surrounding ground.
Well Pads - Area that has been cleared for a drilling rig to work on a plot of land designated for natural gas and oil extraction.
Wet Gas - Natural gas that contains natural gas liquids, which are heavier than gaseous methane. Some of these, such as propane, butane, pentane, hexane, and heptane, may come out of the well in liquid form or may need to be processed. The Marcellus shale gas in Washington County has been described as a wet gas. Natural gas liquids are considered valuable by-products of natural gas processing.
