In June 1948, Company "Creditul Minier" from the Site Bălteni open the drilling activities with well no. 1 Creditul Minier ( projected depth of 2000 m).The drilling has been stopped and the well was abandoned at 927 m, due to technical difficulties. When the first wells were put into production and confirmed certainty rich deposit of oil, heat engines was still used at isolated drilling wells but in Ţicleni and Bălteni, their role was replaced by steam power from the batteries of boilers that run on natural gas produce by wells. A battery of boilers provided steam for more drilling rigs in a certain drilling area. After 1953 the number of boilers batteries for drillings wells to be dug with steam soared so that Ţicleni oilfield was immersed in a steam fog, infernal noise.
