• Alaska's Last Oil

    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.[4] Section 1002 of that act deferred a decision on the management of oil and gas exploration and deve...

  • The Largest Oil Rig in The World

    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.

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...

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.[4] Section 1002 of that act deferred a decision on the management of oil and gas exploration and development of 1,500,000 acres (6.1×109 m2) in the coastal plain, known as the "1002 area". The controversy surrounds drilling for oil in this subsection of ANWR. Much of the debate over whether to drill in the 1002 area of ANWR rests on the amount of economically recoverable oil, as it relates to world oil markets, weighed against the potential harm oil exploration might have upon the natural wildlife, in particular the calving ground of the Porcupine caribou. Prudhoe Bay Oil Field is a large oil field on Alaska's North Slope. It is the largest oil field in both the United States and in North America, covering 213,543 acres (86,418 ha) and originally containing approximately 25 billion barrels (4.0×109 m3) of oil.[1] The amount of recoverable oil in the field is more than double that of the next largest field in the United States, the East Texas oil field. The field is operated by BP; partners are ExxonMobil and ConocoPhillips Alaska.

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.

Wide shot showing damaged holding tank STORYLINE: Despite tension in the Gulf Kuwait's oil production capacity remains unchanged, according to the country's oil ministry. At 'Gathering Centre 19' on the Burgan oil field south east of Kuwait city, pumps were humming as crude made its way through pipelines to storage terminals on the Gulf coast. Burgan, first prospected in 1938, is the second largest oil field in the world. Kuwait is currently producing more than two (m) million barrels of crude daily, an amount in line with current OPEC agreements. A spokesman for the government owned Kuwaiti Oil company said production is currently running at normal capacity. Kuwait has recently closed down two oil fields, both located in the north of the country, saying the measure was intended to safeguard workers at these facilities. The northern half of the country has been closed off to civilians and is being used as a staging area for U.S. and British troops. It is also feared to be well within range of Iraqi artillery. In 1991, the retreating Iraqi army sabotaged and destroyed Kuwaiti oil fields, storage tanks and shipping terminals. The Burgan field was very badly damaged. Fires raged for nine months before being brought under control. Only at the end of 1994 was production at Burgan back to full capacity.

If very light oil-bearing rocks are found near the surface, the gravitational force they exert will be less than that for heavy rocks. Step 4: Study the magnetic properties Study the magnetic properties of the underlying rocks on the property. Most rocks that contain oil are non-magnetic. Step 5: Study sound transmission Study the way sound travels through the earth on your land. The time it takes sound to travel through underlying rocks is characteristic of the types of rocks involved. Tip Don't forget to acquire the mineral rights on your land if you have not done so already. Doing so will ensure that if you find oil, it's legally yours. Step 6: Drill a small test well Drill a small test well if the results of your studies are promising. Now you can sell your oil-rich land and move to Beverly Hills. Did You Know? John D.

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 for drilling but also for the production of hydrocarbons. This production consists of the separation of oil, gas and water, before the oil and gas is taken by pipeline towards a mainland terminal. Where it is impossible or too expensive to link the field to the coast by a pipeline, an FPSO ship is used (Floating Production Storage and Offloading barge). Onboard, the hydrocarbons and the water are separated. The oil is stored prior to being loaded on tankers and the gas is re-injected into the reservoir rocks. Gas from a field is taken to land through an underground gasoduct to a processing plant. There, if the gas is to be transported by sea, it is converted into liquid obtained by cooling it down to --163°C. When it arrives at the plant terminal, the liquid natural gas (LNG) is returned to its gaseous state in a re-gasification plant, before being introduced into the local gasoduct network. The LNG is stored in tanks before re-gasification. The crude oil is transported in a petroleum tanker, the capacity of which can attain 200 000 tons. It is commonly called a "super- tanker". The terminals capable of receiving such giants are few and far between. The ships used to transport the crude oil produced on an FPSO ship are of a much smaller capacity. The crude oil, before being refined, is stored in the port in the large capacity tanks. The natural gas is preserved in reservoirs (artificial or natural). It is ready to be injected by pumping into the gasoduct network for industrial and domestic use or as fuel in power-generating stations. As far as the crude oil goes, it is transported by oleoduct to the refinery. There it undergoes a number of transformations and blending. A variety of finished products are obtained (LPG, petrol, kerosene, diesel ...), or naphtha, which will be used as the basis for the composition of plastic products by complex petroleum chemistry. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Like our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oilvips Twitter: https://twitter.com/oilvips And Don't forget to subscribe to our channel

It is used to vertically introduce the drill strings down the hole. These drill strings are made up of metallic tubes screwed end to end. They transmit a rotating movement (rotary drilling) to the drilling tool (the drill bit) and help circulate a liquid called "mud" (because of its appearance) down to the bottom of the well. The drilling rig works like an enormous electric hand-drill of which the derrick would be the body, the drill strings the drive and the drilling tool the drill bit. The most usual tool is an assembly of three cones -- from which comes the name "tri cone" -- in very hard steel, which crushes the rock. Sometimes when the rock being drilled is very resistant, a single- block tool encrusted with diamonds is used. This wears down the rock by abrasion. Through the drill pipes, at the extremity of which the drill bit rotates, a special mud is injected, which the mud engineer prepares and controls. This mud cools the drill bit and consolidates the sides of the borehole. Moreover it avoids a gushing of oil, gas or water from the layer being drilled, by equilibrating the pressure. Finally, the mud cleans the bottom of the well. As it makes its way along the pipes, it carries the rock fragments (cuttings) to the surface. The geologist examines these cuttings to discover the characteristics of the rocks being drilled and to detect eventual shows of hydrocarbons. The cuttings, fragments of rock crushed by the drill bit, are brought back up to the surface by the mud. To obtain information on the characteristics of the rock being drilled, a core sample is taken. The drill bit is replaced by a hollow tool called a core sampler, which extracts a cylindrical sample of several meters of rock. This core supplies data on the nature of the rock, the inclination of the layers, the structure, permeability, porosity, fluid content and the fossils present. After having drilled a few hundred of meters, the explorers and drillers undertake measurements down the hole called loggings, by lowering electronic tools into the well to measure the physical parameters of the rock being drilled. These measures validate, or invalidate, or make more precise the hypotheses put forward earlier about the rocks and the fluids that they contain. The log engineer is responsible for the analysis of the results of the various loggings. The sides of the well are then reinforced by steel tubes screwed end to end. These tubes (called casings) are cemented into the ground. They isolate the various layers encountered. When hydrocarbons are found, and if the pressure is sufficient to allow them come to the surface naturally, the drillers do a flow check. The oil is allowed to come to the surface during several hours or several days through a calibrated hole. The quantity recovered is measured, as are the changes in pressure at the bottom of the well. In this way, a little more knowledge is gained about the probable productivity of the field. If the field seems promising, the exploration team ends the first discovery well and goes on to drill a second, even several others, several hundred or thousand meters further away. In this way, the exploration team is able to refine its knowledge about the characteristics of the field. The decision to stop drilling is made only when all these appraisal wells have provided sufficient information either to give up the exploration or to envisage future production. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Like our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oilvips Twitter: https://twitter.com/oilvips And Don't forget to subscribe to our channel

(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 from the late 16th century to the 19th century. Some of these “oil mines” were over 30 meters deep. The industrial start of Romania’s oil industry is considered to be 1857 because of three world firsts that year. The first country in the world to officially record petroleum production. Romania was the first country in the world to officially re cord an oil production of 275 tonnes in the international statistics. Romania was followed by official oil production from the United States in 1859, Italy in 1860, Canada in 1862 and Russia in 1863. The world’s first refinery Romania‘s first oil processing refinery in the 1840’s was a simple handmade equipment using rudimentary methods similar distilling alcohol in a rustic boiler.Distillation on industrial scale started in 1857 with the building of the Mehedinteanu Brothers refinery. The refinery installations were primitive, with all the equipment and cylindrical vessels were made from wrought iron and heated with wood fire. Bucharest, the world’s first city illuminated with kerosene Bucharest was illuminated with 1000 street lamps. On1st April 1857 everything was ready and working. The oil offered by Mehedinteanu brothers for public illumination had incontestable properties: colourless and with no smell, burning with a light flame with a constant intensity and shape, without smoke, ash or resin. Romanian scientists and inventors have made lasting contributions to the world wide oil industry

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 of highly stressed and disrupted product on the freshly formed surface area. This creates the workpiece to come to be much more at risk to corrosion and fracture propagation at the worried surface area. A coating operation may be done to prevent these destructive conditions Subscribe to our channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqp3z8qbLBkiPWgfBtFadVA Visit our website for more info: http://worldgeographicchannel.com/

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.
