There are some users on the wiki who seem to treat these two tags as
near-synonyms

man_made=petroleum_well
man_made=pumping_rig

The later was approved, but the first is much more common.

The proposal in 2008 for pumping_rig said

"A tag for pumping platforms - gas, oil, etc. The rig may be on ground or water"

But petroleum_well says just: "An oil well is a boring in the Earth
that is designed to bring petroleum oil or gas to the surface."

I believe not all petrolum wells have a pumping rig? Can someone
confirm that these tags are different?
