It is a 350 mile long arm of the Atlantic Ocean that covers an area of 29,000 square miles, and it is situated between the south coast of the United Kingdom and the north coast of France.
The Channel sees over 500 ships of all types- cargo, passenger, military, naval, coastguard, cruise ship, oil tanker, fishing boat, and ferry – passing through its waters on a daily basis. This number not even inclusive of many private yachts, pleasure craft, tour boats, dredgers, other small working vessels and small commercial and private fishing boats that also clog up its waters.
McClintock No. 1 is the oldest producing oil well in the world. It was originally drilled in 1861 and was producing about 175 barrels per day. Even amidst falling crude prices, the well seems to be invincible as it still produces between 1 -10 barrels of oil a day.
Currently, its small amount of petroleum production is sold to a fuel company to make motor oil.
