Traditional Oil Mining

Wonocolo Village, Bojonegoro Regency, East Java, Indonesia, for more than a century has become a village with abundant natural resources of petroleum. Oil mining is done traditionally and for generations. The crude oil will be sold to state-owned oil companies to be refined into ready-to-use fuel oil to the public.
