No art student would do that. 20 barrels a day max.
But yes if you hire local workers, or rather imported labor, yes maybe. 500 a day seems quite a bit though.
Unlined closed head steel 55 gal drums weigh about 46 pounds.
However I was looking at the barrel specs and they will probably use a SAUDI ARAMCO STANDARD SPECIFICATION BARREL which is 216 liter (57 US gallons) and only weighs 40 pounds (18 kg).
I was assuming they would just form a line and pass them. However - lets assume they are somewhat lazy. 20 people in a line, 5 seconds per barrel is is 288 barrels per person or 5760 barrels per day for 20 people.
6 seconds would drop that to 4800 per 20 man group, or two minutes per barrel if they rolled/carried them individually.
When I was 12 we used to load and unload several thousand lugs of cherries every day @ 30 pounds per lug. Asking a grown man to carry a 40 lbs barrel isn't unreasonable.
So 50 people not so ambitious one month.
