Caption: Natural gas well, 19th-century artwork. Drilling of a natural gas well in Kansas, USA. Commercial drilling for oil and natural gas in Kansas began in 1892. Natural gas is a fossil fuel obtained from underground deposits, often those where oil is also found. Natural gas (mostly methane) is then distributed through pipelines to industries and homes. Artwork from the 17th volume (first period of 1896) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
