The question of whether to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) has been an ongoing political controversy in the United States since 1977. The issue has been used by both Democrats and Republicans as a political device, especially through contentious election cycles, and has been the subject of much debate in the National media. ANWR comprises 19,000,000 acres (77,000 km2) of the north Alaskan coast. The land is situated between the Beaufort Sea to the north, Brooks Range to the south, and Prudhoe Bay to the west. It is the largest protected wilderness in the United States and was created by Congress under the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of 1980. Section 1002 of that act deferred a decision on the management of oil and gas exploration and deve...
Ever wonder where our oil comes from? Here is a rarely seen view from Shaybah Oil Field in Saudi Arabia. Shaybah oilfield in Saudi Arabia is a major oil crude producing site south of the United Arab Emirates. This was taking during a tour of the Aramco site. The oil refinery produces 750,000 barrels of crude oil per day and also natural gas. The new facility costs $2 billion and was created in 1998 does a relatively new field -- Aramco city within shaver houses approximately 2000 people. The site is very high-security and very interesting great deal of ingenuity by American and British and Saudi contractors to create the city. His in his own known as the empty Quarter which is a desert area with no inhabitants for hundreds of miles. The word Shaybah means old man in Saudi Arabia and was...
Perdido is the deepest floating oil rig (platform) in the world at a water depth of about 2450 meters operated by the Shell Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico. The Perdido is located in the Perdido fold belt which is a rich discovery of crude oil and natural gas that lies in water that is nearly 8000 feet deep. The platform's peak production will be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. At 267 meters, the Perdido is nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower. An oil rig is a large structure with facilities to drill wells, to extract and process oil and natural gas, and to temporarily store product until it can be brought to shore for refining and marketing. In many cases, the platform contains facilities to house the workforce as well.
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 ...
For nearly four months, the Aliso Canyon methane leak just north of Los Angeles spewed several thousand metric tons of potent greenhouse gases into the air before it was finally sealed in February. The disaster displaced residents, forced schools to close, and incited widespread distrust in the local government's regulation of the oil and gas industry. Few people realize that Los Angeles was actually built on oil. The Aliso Canyon natural gas facility is just one of thousands of oil and gas drilling and storage sites located in and around the city, which is also home to the country's largest urban oil field. Thousands of wells dot the cityscape, and many operate in highly populated, low-income neighborhoods. VICE News visited Los Angeles, California to investigate how carcinogenic fumes...

These searches are often conducted by small exploration companies called wildcats. Step 1: Look for surface indications of oil Look for obvious signs of oil on the surface of your land. Tip Surface indications might include oil seeps or petroleum residue in soil samples. Step 2: Look for correlations Look for correlations on your land with the sites of other wells, matching fossils, rock properties, and electrical and radioactivity data. These correlations may predict where oil-bearing strata begin on your property. Step 3: Study gravitational variations Study variations in the earth's g...
- Like our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oilvips - Oil and gas are generated from a source rock, organic matter buried in the depths of the earth. Once formed, they climb back towards the surface. On their way, cap rocks can impede their progress and they accumulate in reservoir rocks. Here they constitute hydrocarbon fields, which can be identified by interpreting seismic data (a sort of echography). The data is obtained with the help of a seismic ship. To confirm the interpretations of seismic data, two types of drilling gear exist. Each is adapted to a range of depth of water (down to more than 2500 meters). The platform seen here is a semi-submersible, which floats and retains its stabilised position by means of anchors fixed on the seabed. Platforms at sea are used not only f...

- Like our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oilvips - Geologists and geophysicists have agreed on the existence of a "prospect", a potential field. In order to find out if hydrocarbons are indeed trapped in the reservoir rock, we must drill to hit them. Bearing in mind the knowledge acquired about the substratum and the topography of the land, the best position for the installation of the drilling equipment is determined. Generally it is vertically above the point of maximum thickness of the geological layer suspected of containing hydrocarbons. The drillers then make a hole in conditions that are sometimes difficult. Of small diameter (from 20 to 50 cm) this hole will generally go down to a depth of between 2000 and 4000 meters. Exceptionally, certain wells exceed 6000 m. One of them h...
(RO) - Documentar rar de arhiva (fara sonor) - Made in USA. Extragerea şi transportul petrolului în Romania, zona Subcarpaţii de Curbura, realizat în anul 1926. (EN) – Old Oil Exploitation in Romania – 1926 / Oil being extracted at the Baicoi and Bustenari oil field in Romania. Archive footage from an USA-made documentary depicting crude oil exploitation în Romania's Prahova Valley region. HISTORY: The first record mentioning oil from the Romanian province of Wallachia is dated 1517. In the beginning, crude oil exploitation simply meant collection from the shallow pits and ditches in the outcrops of the Sub-Carpathian area. The technique involved digging small holes where oil seeped and then was channelled through ditches towards a collecting pit. Deeper “oil mines” were dug by hand fro...

How Oil are Drilled? - Drilling Documentary - DOCS CHANNEL Drilling is a reducing procedure that utilizes a drill little bit to destroy or enlarge a gap of round cross-section in solid products. The drill bit is a rotary destroying device, typically multipoint. The little bit is pressed against the work surface and rotated at prices from hundreds to hundreds of transformations each minute. This compels the cutting side against the workpiece, cutting off chips (swarf) from the hole as it is pierced. Remarkably, specially-shaped bits can reduce holes of non-circular cross-section; a square cross-section is possible Drilling could influence the mechanical commercial properties of the work surface by producing low recurring stresses around the hole opening as well as an extremely thin layer...
In this video, we’ll take a look at areas of high volume that develop during the day. First, let’s just define what we mean by an area of high volume. High Volume at price is something you see on many reversals in the market. http://www.jigsawtrading.com/ Not all reversals involve high volume but it’s really worth studying high volume areas because they provide clear opportunity when they do occur.
I am not a child now
I can take care of myself
I mustn't let them down now
Mustn't let them see me cry
I'm fine, I'm fine
I'm too tired to listen
I'm too old to believe
All these childish stories
There is no such thing as faith
And trust and pixie dust
But it's so hard to believe
But I can't see what you see
I try, I try, I try...
My whole world is changing
I don't know wherew to turn
I can't leave you waiting
But I can't stay and watch this city burn
Watch it burn
'Cause I try
But it's so hard to believe
But I can't see what you see
I try, I try
I try and try to understand
The distance in between
The love I feel and the things I fear
And every single dream
I can finally see it
Now I have to believe
All those precious stories
All the worl is made of...
Faith, and trust... and pixie dust
So, I'll try
Because I finally believe
I'll try, cuz I can see what you see
I'll try, I'll try
I will try
