Chinese scientists began drilling a well 10,000 meters deep

According to Xinhua news agency, on May 30 in China’s oil-rich Xinjiang region began drilling the deepest well in the country’s history. The narrow shaft will enter the ground to a depth of more than 10,000 meters and penetrate more than 10 continental strata.

Scientists hope to reach rocks of the Cretaceous system about 145 million years old.

The complexity of building a drilling project can be compared to moving a large truck along two thin steel cables.”
