    Probe drilling on position 15,2 has been stopped due to falling material.

    Injection a barrel 46 oil into the hydraulic tank.

    Probe drilling operation on position 11 and 1 has been stopped due to falling material.
    these sentences are correct.

    Thanks.

    No. It should be "drilling operations on positions 11 and 1 have been stopped".

    Re: Grammar

    The problem with your sentence is that "operation" is singular.

    For example i will write the amount of a barrel of oil and the number of that oil.Like this is OK"A barrel 46 oil"that mean oil with name of 46.

    yaghoob, you have been told before that 'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    A better title would have been Probe drilling on position 15,2.
