Default Oilwell Casing heads

Hello again, I have a question about oil well casing heads. I have noticed aside from the one type that is flat-topped with a beveled ring and packing, there are other types that are dome shaped, with the ports for natural gas around the sides, and ears that are cast onto the top for the tubing tee and stuffing box. Were these an older type of head, or a design from a different manufacturer? I am looking for some of these dome shaped types, and am wondering if anybody has any they would sell, or might know of where they can be found. I appreciate all and any help. Thank you, Sam

Hillwomp, no, I haven't had any luck yet. I am willing to bet there are countless numbers of them on abandoned wells. I have found, something that slightly resembles a well-head, a cast iron or steel sewer pipe with the female coupling pointing up looks somewhat like one, but is missing the cast in threaded ports for natural gas. One looks neat as a part for a mock-up of a well, when combined with a top ring, tubing/tee, and stuffing box on top. Made up a sign at the end of our driveway that looks like an abandoned well, with all of the above items, but on the very top-there is a canister made out of a section of thin-walled tube to hold a tiki torch fuel tank and wick. This can be lit at night to give the impression it is burning off gas slightly. Will have to post some pics. Just some ideas I have tried. Will keep you posted. Sam

You may want to visit a site called Rigwelderforums.com , a lot of guys on there are pipe line welders and do oil field work also. I would guess you will find some info there but you probably have to register to ask a question.

Here are some photos of the make-shift well that doubles as our sign post. The blackish casting near the bottom is actually a piece of 4 inch cast iron sewer pipe. Best regards, Sam

Thank you, Bill!! It was fun to put together. It is anchored into the ground by a 3 foot long by 5 inch diameter pipe. Once it is dark out, it really lights up the area nicely. It is more or less the prototype for the self contained water wells I would like to build for my pumpjacks to pump. Now, if only there was oil on this side of the state!
