People in the past have used crude tools in drilling wells and it would have taken them a longer period of time. These days, it can be done in a shorter period of time since there are now tools that are more sophisticated. In doing the Montana drilling for a water well, for example, big equipments like drills are used. This means lesser people working on a drilling project but still it would take lesser time to finish it. The advent of technology has surely benefited the drilling industry since more projects can be done yet the manpower needed as well as the time needed for it can be reduced.
