Why Natural Gas Could Be the Fuel That Changes the World
July 29 -- The first liquefied natural gas tanker ship passed through the expanded Panama Canal on July 25, hauling gas from the U.S. Gulf Coast. The shortcut means less time and money spent getting American gas across the Pacific. Natural gas already has a lot going for it -- it's cheap, burns cleaner than other fossil fuels and it's plentiful. The new route just adds to why LNG may be the fuel of the future. Like this video?

US becomes largest natural gas producer
Over the past few decades, the U.S. has been increasingly dependent on imports to meet its growing hunger for energy. But technological advances have now led to a huge surge in domestic output - and the U.S. is now the world's largest natural-gas producer. And the impact of this is being felt not just domestically but across the globe. As part of a special series on America's energy revolution - Tom Ackerman reports from Texas.

Why is natural gas flared? What is the solution?
Light from gas flares in the Bakken oil fields of North Dakota is as bright as the city of Chicago. Billions of cubic feet of natural gas is being flared or vented in remote oil fields, a waste stream going up in smoke. Now Pioneer Energy is changing that waste into resources, adding up to 30% in revenue—which could mean the difference between success and failure in the current tight petroleum market. Pioneer Energy’s innovative, proprietary flare gas capture and processing systems turn raw associated gas and tank battery vapors from a waste into a resource.

An Overview of the North American Natural Gas Industry
Black & Veatch's Strategic Directions in the North American Natural Gas Industry report identifies key challenges and opportunities within each segment of the value chain. Learn more at http://bit.ly/1cpX6xq TRANSCRIPT Announcer: Optimism for sustained growth continues across all segments of the natural gas value chain according to Black & Veatch's 2013 Strategic Directions in the North American Natural Gas Industry report. However, realizing the full potential of North America's vast natural gas resources will require the industry to overcome challenges that affect each component of the value chain. Beginning with the Upstream segment, an uncertain regulatory environment has slowed the development of new pipeline capacity to support emerging shale gas plays. With few options to move shale gas to market, producers are increasingly looking to implement commodity enhancement programs, such as liquefied natural gas or compressed natural gas production. The discovery and production of vast natural gas reserves across North America has had a profound impact on the pipeline industry. While new capacity is a critical need for high-demand centers and developing shale plays, the costs associated with maintaining now underutilized capacity are straining finances and making it difficult for pipelines to attract capital. At the same time, the increasing reliance on and forecasted demand for gas in the electric generation industry have created new challenges associated with gas reliability and capacity and with determining who should pay for new infrastructure to support power generation. Increasing demand for natural gas from power generators, the need for new pipeline capacity, and system wide investments to ensure the safety and integrity of physical and information assets, all add to the cost of natural gas services for consumers. Low U.S. prices and strong global demand create tremendous incentives to invest in LNG export capacity. Asia is the most likely market for U.S. LNG. Recently prices in Asia have been above $15 per million British thermal units, while European prices have been closer to $10. This year's report shows that growth and optimism for sustained growth continue. Improving technologies, from drilling applications to monitoring and data acquisition, are enabling the industry to better manage assets, reduce costs and be better positioned to meet evolving regulations.

How Much Energy Does the U.S. Use?
We all know the U.S. consumes a massive amount of energy but it's hard to wrap your head around the numbers. How much do we rely on oil? Do renewable resources make up a significant portion of our energy use?

In the US, the New Look of Gas Exploration
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com Many people think the search for cleaner energy leads only to renewable resources like sun, wind and water. But it also leads to a fossil fuel. Natural gas is considered the cleanest of the fossil fuels -- the fuels created by plant and animal remains over millions of years. Burning it releases fewer pollutants than oil or coal. The gas is mainly methane. It produces half the carbon dioxide of other fossil fuels. So it may help cut the production of carbon gases linked to climate change. Russia is first in what are called "proved reserves" of natural gas. The United States is sixth. Over the years, big oil and gas companies recovered much of the easily reached supplies of gas in America. They drilled straight down into formations where gas collects. As these supplies were used up, big drillers looked for similar formations in other countries. But now the industry is taking a new look. Companies are developing gas supplies trapped in shale rock two to three thousand meters underground. They drill down to the shale, then go sideways and inject high-pressure water, sand or other material into the rock. This causes the rock to break, or fracture, releasing the gas. Huge fields of gas shale are believed to lie under the Appalachian Mountains, Michigan and the south-central states. Gas shale exploration is being done mainly by small to medium sized companies. Eric Potter is a program director in the Bureau of Economic Geology at the University of Texas at Austin. He said the kinds of opportunities that are left for natural gas exploration in the United States have changed. So it is not as easy to develop. He says more than half the gas in the United States is now coming from these new reserves. But hydraulic fracturing can also produce debate and anger over the risk of groundwater pollution. This method of drilling is not federally supervised under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Some in Congress want to end that exemption from the law. Natural gas provides Americans with about one-fourth of their energy. And, unlike oil, most of it is produced in America. Gas producers invested heavily in reaching new supplies when prices were high. But prices are down sharply now because the recession cut demand for energy. So energy expert Eric Potter says it is too early to know how the new gas shale reserves will affect the market. And that's the VOA Special English Economics Report.

Natural gas explosions reveal danger below our feet
The catastrophic explosions that rocked northeastern Massachusetts last month have drawn new attention to the problems of an aging natural gas infrastructure that's prone to dangerous – and sometimes fatal – gas leaks. USA TODAY reported on the problems of aging natural gas pipelines in 2014, and found that leaking cast-iron mains were a primary cause of natural gas fires and explosions. But despite a call to action that year from then-Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, replacing those pipes has been slow – and sometimes as perilous as the pipes themselves. A new USA TODAY investigation of natural gas pipeline safety, based on federal data and interviews with industry, experts and regulators, found spotty oversight and a lack of transparency by utilities and regulators responsible for keeping gas customers safe.

Natural Gas: Part of the Clean Energy Solution
Natural gas is part of the clean energy solution. It is an affordable, domestic, and abundant source of energy. When considering cost, efficiency, and environmental benefits, natural gas is one of the nation's most versatile energy sources. Also, it offers the U.S. the opportunity to achieve energy independence. There is currently enough natural gas to meet U.S. energy demands for more than 100 years and 97% of the natural gas we use is produced here in North America.

Natural Gas Supply & Demand: Drilling & Gas Exploration - Alan Greenspan (2003)
In the 19th century, natural gas was usually obtained as a by-product of producing oil, since the small, light gas carbon chains came out of solution as the extracted fluids underwent pressure reduction from the reservoir to the surface, similar to uncapping a bottle of soda where the carbon dioxide effervesces. Unwanted natural gas was a disposal problem in the active oil fields. If there was not a market for natural gas near the wellhead it was virtually valueless since it had to be piped to the end user. In the 19th century and early 20th century, such unwanted gas was usually burned off at oil fields. Today, unwanted gas (or stranded gas without a market) associated with oil extraction often is returned to the reservoir with 'injection' wells while awaiting a possible future market or to repressurize the formation, which can enhance extraction rates from other wells. In regions with a high natural gas demand (such as the US), pipelines are constructed when it is economically feasible to transport gas from a wellsite to an end consumer. In addition to transporting gas via pipelines for use in power generation, other end uses for natural gas include export as liquefied natural gas (LNG) or conversion of natural gas into other liquid products via gas-to-liquids (GTL) technologies. GTL technologies can convert natural gas into liquids products such as gasoline, diesel or jet fuel. A variety of GTL technologies have been developed, including Fischer-Tropsch (F-T), methanol to gasoline (MTG) and STG+. F-T produces a synthetic crude that can be further refined into finished products, while MTG can produce synthetic gasoline from natural gas. STG+ can produce drop-in gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and aromatic chemicals directly from natural gas via a single-loop process.[9] In 2011, Royal Dutch Shell’s 140,000 barrel per day F-T plant went into operation in Qatar. Natural gas can be "associated" (found in oil fields), or "non-associated" (isolated in natural gas fields), and is also found in coal beds (as coalbed methane).[10] It sometimes contains a significant amount of ethane, propane, butane, and pentane—heavier hydrocarbons removed for commercial use prior to the methane being sold as a consumer fuel or chemical plant feedstock. Non-hydrocarbons such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen, helium (rarely), and hydrogen sulfide must also be removed before the natural gas can be transported.[11] Natural gas extracted from oil wells is called casinghead gas or associated gas. The natural gas industry is extracting an increasing quantity of gas from challenging resource types: sour gas, tight gas, shale gas, and coalbed methane. There is some disagreement on which country has the largest proven gas reserves. Sources that consider that Russia has by far the largest proven reserves include the US CIA (47.6 trillion cubic meters),[12] the US Energy Information Administration (47.8 tcm),[13] and OPEC (48.7 tcm).[14] However, BP credits Russia with only 32.9 tcm,[15] which would place it in second place, slightly behind Iran (33.1 to 33.8 tcm, depending on the source). With Gazprom, Russia is frequently the world's largest natural gas extractor. Major proven resources (in billion cubic meters) are world 187,300 (2013), Iran 33,600 (2013), Russia 32,900 (2013), Qatar 25,100 (2013), Turkmenistan 17,500 (2013) and the United States 8,500 (2013). It is estimated that there are about 900 trillion cubic meters of "unconventional" gas such as shale gas, of which 180 trillion may be recoverable.[16] In turn, many studies from MIT, Black & Veatch and the DOE predict that natural gas will account for a larger portion of electricity generation and heat in the future.[17] The world's largest gas field is the offshore South Pars / North Dome Gas-Condensate field, shared between Iran and Qatar. It is estimated to have 51 trillion cubic meters of natural gas and 50 billion barrels of natural gas condensates. Because natural gas is not a pure product, as the reservoir pressure drops when non-associated gas is extracted from a field under supercritical (pressure/temperature) conditions, the higher molecular weight components may partially condense upon isothermic depressurizing—an effect called retrograde condensation. The liquid thus formed may get trapped as the pores of the gas reservoir get depleted. One method to deal with this problem is to re-inject dried gas free of condensate to maintain the underground pressure and to allow re-evaporation and extraction of condensates. More frequently, the liquid condenses at the surface, and one of the tasks of the gas plant is to collect this condensate. The resulting liquid is called natural gas liquid (NGL) and has commercial value. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_gas

How the Syrian Crisis is REALLY about Oil and Europe | REAL MATTERS
► Subscribe on YouTube : http://bit.ly/2uQHX6B ► Instagram : http://bit.ly/2uQIq8R Lets look at the oil and natural gas pipelines that run through the Middle East and Syria and why this conflict is really about Europe's addiction to oil in 2017. Remember to Like & Sub! Check out my new report. Why Erdogan is Nervous about The Kurds in Turkey : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wun4CR-DvwY&t=5s ________________ Syria itself is not a major energy producer in the region, however its importance lies as a potential transit hub from energy suppliers like Saudi Arabia, Iran and Iraq towards the thirsty energy markets of Europe. Notably proposed pipelines of major energy projects would pass through Syria , into Turkey and then enter the European grid. With the onset of the Civil war in Syria, the proposed pipeline projects have all been put on hold and their future is unclear. The most important aspect of this, is Europes need for energy diversity. Europe and Russia The EU’s energy thirst is estimated to be the second largest in the world after the United States. Notably, some 70- 80% of its energy requirements are satisfied by Russian gas and oil, piped in mostly through Ukraine. Disputes between Ukraine and Russia over energy first publicly surfaced in 2002 and culminated in 2009 when Russia cut supplies to Ukraine for short period of time, setting off panic in European capitals. This made the issue of Europes energy reliance on Russia more pressing. The subsequent Civil war in Ukraine is also deeply linked to this relationship. But this will be examined in a later video so please Subscribe with the button below if you want to hear more about that. European leaders came to the understanding that Europe needed a more diverse energy environment. Backed by the United States they sought to bring energy supplies, mainly from the energy rich Middle East into Europe. Syria’s position as a important transit route elevated the need for an agreement with the Syrian government that would bring supplies from the energy rich Gulf and Saudi Arabia into Europe, bypassing Russia . The Syrian Pipelines A Pipeline was proposed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar ,backed by the United States , which would use Syria as a transit route. The Pipelines would Saudi- Qatar pipeline would pass through Jodan - Syria and Turkey before entering Europe. The Syrian Government rejected the proposal. Syria's rationale for the rejection the Saudi-Qatari pipeline proposal was said to be "to protect the interests of [its] Russian ally, which is Europe's top supplier of natural gas." A competing Pipelines was also proposed dubbed The Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline . A natural gas pipeline running from Iran towards Europe via Iraq, Syria and Lebanon to supply European customers as well as Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. The pipelines ran into numerous problems mostly from US pressure and its Swiss backers have since stopped its financing. The earliest proposed Pipeline intended to bypass Russia was the Nabucco Pipeline. Which aims to bring Caucasus and Iraqi oil through Turkey, the balkans and ending in Austria. This project is also supported by a number of EU member states and the United States. The project was later scrapped in favour of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline , which has now been almost completed and will start by bringing BP’s Azerbaijani Energy through Turkey - Greece- Albanian into Italy. The project is aimed to start supplying oil and gas by 2018 and the pipeline itself is in the final stages of competition. Once ready, this will be the first major means of energy diversification in Europe.

Oil And Natural Gas Exploration Animation Video
This video uses a combination of 3D and 2D Infographics to explain the process of Oil and Natural Gas Exploration. The drilling is to be done in the country Bulgaria. The video was made for Park Place Energy Corporation, U.S.A. Park Place Energy is a U.S. public company engaged in exploration for oil and natural gas. Our management team has extensive international oil and gas experience.Our goal is to produce natural gas from coal seams in the Dobrich region of northeast Bulgaria. Between 1965 and 1990 drilling was conducted in and around the area covered by the Block 1-11 Vranino license, and over 220 wells were safely drilled through the aquifers to the coal formations. From these activities, we know the location of the coal formations. Although the license covers about 400 square kilometers, only about 700 square meters (being an area of about 100 meters by 70 meters) will be used for drilling operations. After the well is placed into production, the drilling area may be reduced. No activities will be conducted on or near environmental areas. Our project in Bulgaria involves the exploration for gas from subsurface coal formations, or coal seams. Coal seam gas, also called coalbed methane (CBM), is a naturally occurring gas mixture that’s mostly methane. Coal seam gas generally has more pure concentrations of methane (95%) than other natural gases found in sandstones or carbonate formations. Coal seam gas is formed by the same natural processes that create the coal seams that hold it. By using the information from the wells previously drilled in the area, we can identify the depths of the local water aquifers to ensure that these aquifers are not damaged during drilling or production operations. In the coal seams, the gas adheres to the surface of the coal (known as the matrix) and is also found in the system of naturally occurring fractures (known as cleats). The gas is trapped in the coal matrix and the cleats by water and ground pressure. Extracting the gas involves drilling into the coal seam and reducing the formation pressure primarily by pumping off the water in the formation. As a consequence of the lower pressure, the gas is released from the coal matrix and flows through the cleats to the well bore and then onward to the surface. All of the casings will be cemented back to the surface, providing multiple mechanical barriers to protect the local water aquifers. Coal seams are generally found at depths between 1500 and 2000 meters. The pressure integrity of the casing and cement is tested at every one of the casing before the final wellbore section is drilled through the coal seams. During the drilling of the final section, core samples will be obtained. Analysis of these core samples will allow us to determine if the coal seams produce coal bed methane. After testing is completed, we will install and cement the production casing. This ensures that the well is completely cased and cemented with no possibility of gas escaping in an uncontrolled manner. Once the drilling procedure ends, the drilling rig is removed and a temporary wellhead is installed. A perforation gun is lowered to the coal seams. A high- pressure gas jet is released, piercing the casing and cement barrier to penetrate the coal seam. This process does not involve the injection of fluids, chemicals or sand which would occur with fracking. Water and gas will then flow from the coal seams into the wellbore. The water will be piped to the surface in a center pipe, while the gas will travel in the space between the center pipe and the casing (the annulus). At the surface, water will be deposited into storage tanks, then treated and removed from the drill site. Produced water will then be taken to a government licensed commercial disposal site for final treatment and disposal. Depending on the volume and quality of the gas, it may be piped to a local gas distribution system or compressed on-site into canisters as compressed natural gas (CNG). The natural gas produced from coal seams is almost entirely methane, the same as the gas imported by Bulgaria. Natural gas is a substantially cleaner than coal, oil or burning wood. Natural gas produces 65% fewer emissions than coal per kilowatt hour and 25% fewer emissions than oil. Domestic production of natural gas will reduce the amount of gas Bulgaria must import and provide a cleaner, more environmentally friendly fuel for heating and electrical generation for the local economy.

Did you know that more access to domestic energy and resources could generate up to $1.7 trillion in government revenue, create thousands of new jobs and enhance Americas energy security? Most Americans support increase access to offshore oil and natural gas resources. Why is Congress trying to delay the development of Americas own energy? Tell Congress you support putting Americas energy to work for America.
The U.S. Energy Renaissance and Exports: A Conversation with Ryan Lance
The CSIS Energy and National Security Program is pleased to host Ryan Lance, Chairman and CEO of ConocoPhillips, to discuss the new North American oil and natural gas resource abundance and its U.S. energy policy implications. Burgeoning tight oil and shale gas development in the United States, oil sands development in Canada and underexplored conventional resources in Mexico combine to make North America one of the most dynamic oil and gas development plays in the world. The ability to continue developing these vast resources and benefiting from the resulting job creation and economic stimulation represents great opportunity, while also posing non-trivial challenges, particularly in the face of new price realities and impending surpluses. Mr. Lance will discuss these and other key issues. Frank Verrastro, Senior Vice President and James R. Schlesinger Chair for Energy and Geopolitics at CSIS, will moderate. Richard Armitage, President of Armitage International and CSIS Trustee, will provide introductory remarks. Ryan Lance is chairman and chief executive officer of ConocoPhillips, the world's largest independent exploration and production company based on production and reserves. He has held this position since mid-2012. Ryan is a petroleum engineer with 28 years of oil and natural gas industry experience in senior management and technical positions with ConocoPhillips, predecessor Phillips Petroleum and various divisions of ARCO. His past executive assignments with ConocoPhillips have included responsibility for international exploration and production, regional responsibility at various times for Asia, Africa, the Middle East and North America, and responsibility for technology, major projects, downstream strategy, integration and specialty functions. http://csis.org/event/us-energy-renaissance-and-exports-conversation-ryan-lance-chairman-and-ceo-conocophillips

Natural Gas: A Clean Energy Alternative
According to the US Energy Information Administration's Annual Energy Outlook 2011, the United States possesses 2.5 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of potential natural gas resources. Natural gas from shale resources, considered uneconomical just a few years ago, accounts for 862 Tcf of this resource estimate, more than double the estimate EIA published last year. At the 2010 rate of U.S. consumption (about 24.1 Bcf per year), 2.5 Tcf of natural gas is enough to supply over 100 years of use. Is natural gas the silver bullet for meeting future US and regional energy demand for electricity and vehicle fuels? What is the impact of the increasing supply of natural gas prices on other energy resources, e.g., coal, nuclear, solar and wind? Does it stand to reason that US natural gas production should be used solely for domestic purposes? These and other questions will be considered at the September 28th Georgia Tech Clean Energy Speakers Series.

U.S. LNG exports Shaping Global Natural Gas Market
Growing global demand for LNG exports is creating significant interest for U.S. natural gas resources. Learn more: http://bv.com/reports TRANSCRIPT Deepa Poduval | Principal Consultant, Black & Veatch The 2014 Strategic Directions in the Gas Industry has shown increased optimism for the volume of LNG exports we’ll see from the U.S. In August of this year, 2014, the DOE introduced a new procedure by which they’re actually putting the FERC or the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s environmental review ahead of the DOE’s expert license approval process. What that does is that it levels the playing field, mainly for projects that were stuck at the backup of the DOE’s queue, allows them to more aggressively approach their environmental review with FERC and essentially move their projects forward faster. The DOE of course still has the obligation of protecting the domestic consumer here in the U.S. and will be looking to see if there are any detrimental impacts to the domestic market and retains the right to constraint or restrict export approval license if it senses that it can put the U.S. consumer at a disadvantage. International markets are very enthusiastic about U.S. LNG exports because they’re hoping that the U.S. gas resources can facilitate greater parity in international gas prices. Of course geopolitics as well as their impact on gas prices will affect the ultimate prospects for LNG exports. The other key variable is climate change in the move towards more natural gas as well as more renewable resources. I think they’re going to impact the ultimate demand for LNG as well as prices. At Black & Veatch, we think that there’s increasing recognition in the industry that LNG export projects are real and we think the industry is catching up to the forecast that we had on LNG export volumes.

Natural Gas Will Overtake Oil as #1 Fuel ;IEA's World Energy Outlook 2015-2020
Natural Gas Will Overtake Oil as #1 Fuel ;IEA's World Energy Outlook 2015-2020 According to a study by the Paris-based International Energy Agency, natural gas will overtake oil as the most used fuel in the US by 2030, Bloomberg reports. Nearly half of the increase in gas supply will be from “unconventional” sources such as coal beds and shale formations, the study predicts. The boom in shale gas drilling has already led to the US surpassing Russia as the world’s number one gas producer. All said, bountiful supply and relatively cheap prices will lead to increased use. - See more at: http://dailyresourcehunter.com/natural-gas-to-be-1-us-fuel-by-2030/#sthash.zy044l47.dpuf I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)

ONGC : Oil and Natural Gas Commission of India
Since its inception, ONGC has been instrumental in transforming the country's limited upstream sector into a large viable playing field, with its activities spread throughout India and significantly in overseas territories. In the inland areas, ONGC not only found new resources in Assam but also established new oil province in Cambay basin (Gujarat), while adding new petroliferous areas in the Assam-Arakan Fold Belt and East coast basins (both inland and offshore). ONGC went offshore in early 70's and discovered a giant oil field in the form of Bombay High, now known as Mumbai High. This discovery, along with subsequent discoveries of huge oil and gas fields in Western offshore changed the oil scenario of the country. Subsequently, over 5 billion tonnes of hydrocarbons, which were present in the country, were discovered. The most important contribution of ONGC, however, is its self-reliance and development of core competence in E&P activities at a globally competitive level. Today, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. (ONGC) is, the leader in Exploration & Production (E&P) activities in India contributing 72 per cent to India’s total production of crude oil and 48 per cent of natural gas. ONGC’s quest for energy goes deeper than setting new benchmarks in deep-water drilling in the Krishna Godavari Basin or finding new frontiers of energy. Global decline in crude prices notwithstanding, we have taken significant investment decisions diligently and aggressively, reversing the production trend in offshore. And now we are venturing into deeper offshore plays in our quest for energy security. It is this journey that has placed us among Fortune “World’s Most Admired Companies” and ranked us 3rd in the E&P industry globally on the Platts Top 250 Rankings 2014.

Fundamentals of Upstream Oil and Gas
Oil 101 - A FREE Introduction to the Oil and Gas Industry I this first of 10 modules, we introduce the learner to some key fundamentals of the Upstream segment of the oil and gas industry. The full Oil 101 course includes: +Introduction to Upstream +Introduction to Midstream +Introduction to Downstream +Introduction to Exploration +Introduction to Drilling +Introduction to Production +Introduction to Natural Gas +Introduction to Refining +Introduction to Supply and Trading +Introduction to Petroleum Product Marketing Learn More about Oil 101: http://www.ektinteractive.com/ http://www.ektinteractive.com/oil-101/ So, What is Upstream? Most oil and gas companies’ business structures are organized according to business segment, assets, or function. The upstream segment of oil and gas is also known as exploration and production, or E&P because it encompasses activities related to searching for, recovering, and producing crude oil and natural gas. Upstream is all about wells, where to locate them; how deep and how far to drill them; and how to design, construct, operate and manage them to deliver the greatest possible return on investment with the lightest, safest and smallest operational footprint. In fact, the E&P sector should probably be called the EDP sector - because “you can’t find oil if you don’t drill wells.” Exploration Obtaining the Lease Let’s start with exploration which involves the operator obtaining a lease and permission to drill from the owner of onshore or offshore acreage thought to contain oil or gas. Then the operator must conduct geological and geophysical surveys to select the first well site to explore for, and hopefully find, economic accumulations of oil or gas. This well is often called a “wildcat well.” Drilling is physically creating the “borehole” in the ground that will eventually become a productive oil or gas well. This work is typically done by rig contractors and service companies in the Oilfield Services business sector. On a wellsite, there can be as many as 30-40 different service contractors providing expertise to the operator. Wells can be relatively simple or unbelievably complex. Wells can totally vertical for miles or both deep and horizontal. There are also highly complex “J” and “S” configured wells with numerous branches, or laterals, emanating from the original, or “mother”, hole. These are called “deviated wells.” Production Finally, let’s discuss production, where reserves are “converted to cash” by maximizing the recovery of hydrocarbons from subsurface reservoirs. Essentially, production is efficiently bringing the hydrocarbons to the surface and treating them as needed to make them marketable. So that’s the basics of E&P. We will drill deeper into each of these operations in the complete Oil 101 course at a later date. Now, let’s talk about unconventional resources, clearly the hottest topic in oil and gas over the last decade. Unconventional Future of Oil and Gas Unconventional resources are defined as any resource extracted, or produced, by any method other than the traditional vertical or slightly deviated well. The three main sources of technological breakthroughs that have made unconventional developments profitable include: Horizontal drilling Hydraulic fracturing Subsea engineering (especially deep water production)

Jerome Corsi: The U.S. is now run by China
The Obama administration is quietly allowing China to acquire major ownership interests in oil and natural gas resources across the U.S. The decision to allow China to compete for U.S. oil and natural gas resources appears to stem from a need to keep Beijing economically interested in lending to the U.S. The Obama administration has run $1-trillion-plus annual federal budget deficits since taking office that likely will continue in the second term. Allowing China to have equity interests in U.S. energy production is a reversal of the Bush administration's policy. In 2005, the Bush administration blocked China on grounds of national security from an $18.4 billion deal to purchase California-based Unocal Corp. As WND reported Monday, Beijing has been developing a proposal in which real estate on American soil owned by China would be set up as "development zones" to establish Chinese-owned businesses and bring in its citizens to the U.S. to work. China leased first oil rights in Texas China's first major move into the U.S. oil and natural gas market can be traced to October 2009, when the state-owned Chinese energy giant CNOOC bought a multi-million dollar stake in 600,000 acres of South Texas oil and gas fields. Reporting the story, Monica Hatcher of the Houston Chronicle suggested China was "testing the political waters for further energy expansion into U.S. energy reserves." China's purchase of U.S. oil and natural gas rights will strike millions of Americans as paradoxical, since the U.S. continues to be a net importer of approximately 60 percent of the oil consumed in the U.S. The Chronicle reported China paid $2.2 billion for a one-third stake in Chesapeake Energy assets, with CNOCC laying a claim to a share of energy resources in South Texas that could produce up to half a million barrels of oil per day. The Houston paper reported that as part of the deal, CNOCC agreed to pay approximately $1.1 billion for a share of Chesapeake's assets in the Eagle Ford, a broad oil and gas formation that runs southwest of San Antonio to the Mexican border. The Chronicle also reported that the deal with China could create as many as 20,000 jobs in the U.S. and provide the capital Chesapeake needs to increase its rig count in South Texas from 10 to 42 by the end of 2012.

The End Of The Oil Age, How Much Is Left And What Will Happen When We Run Out
Imagine the day when the world is turned up side down, when mankind is plunged in to a mad max style future, a dystopian future of war, famine and financial chaos. This is the day when the worlds most precious resource runs out. **REMEMBER TO SUBSCRIBE FOR MUCH MORE TO COME** FʘLLʘW THE VENDOR 101 Subscribe - https://www.youtube.com/c/TheVendor101 Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+TheVendor101 Twitter - https://twitter.com/thevendor101 What we use it for- Oil is the life blood that is pumped though our modern world, with out it we could not fly to popular holiday destinations, travel to work in the comfort of our vehicles or maybe even watch this video on YouTube, plus many more little perks of modern life. We rely on oil to power many applications within our lives and as of early 2015, the IEA Oil Market Report forecast the average demand would be 34 billion barrels of oil for the year. At this rate, how long can we go on pumping oil out of the ground without exhausting our supplies? Were does it come from- Oil is formed according to a leading theory, by dead organic material accumulating at the bottom of the oceans, riverbeds or swamps. Over time this material was gradually covered by sediment, Millions of years of this process caused the sediment to grow heavier and heavier, resulting heat and pressure which transforms the organic layer into a dark and waxy substance known as kerogen. Some types of kerogen gradually changed in to oil or natural gas and collectively these are known as hydrocarbons or fossil fuels. This process according to scientists probably takes at least a million years. How much is left- According to the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, there are 1.3 trillion barrels of proven oil reserve left in the world's major fields, which at present rates of consumption should last 40 years. This has meant that governments and oil companies have been forced to look for sources of oil in more difficult locations, such as the deep sea. However this requires intensive and costly processing. The challenge facing engineers is extracting the oil and gas from these deep locations. At present much of it is so difficult to get at that it actually takes more energy to extract it than it gives back in use. So there is plenty more oil available, it's just really hard to get to and find. What will happen to the world- Some peak oil theorists believe that we have already passed the point of maximum oil production, what is clear is that oil is getting harder to find and extract, and this is reflected in rising prices. Those price increases encourage users to decrease consumption and inventors to create alternatives. Most likely, petrol and diesel use will disappear by legal mandate once a clearly-superior alternative is developed. But what if a superior alternative isn't developed? What if we run out of oil, natural gases and run out of time to build nuclear power plants. What if we run out of energy to fuel our modern society's? What will happen to man kind? Well life as we know it would come to an end. All the everyday items made from oil would no longer be produced, Virtually all transport would stop and so would nearly all manufacturing. This would result in Food production coming to a halt, millions would freeze in colder climates and masses of people would be unemployed, meaning that they could not purchase the increasing costly price of the most basic foods. Eventually millions upon millions would starve to death. The replacements- However, thanks to extremely clever and persistent inventors, there are many other replacement energy technologies that are being used and are being developed. Hopefully, by the time we do finally run out of oil, then we will already have a superior alternative to the black gold.
