Oil Make the World Goes Round

By: Andrew Beene

The petroleum industry consist of the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transporting (often by oil tankers and pipelines), and marketing petroleum products. The largest volume products of the industry are fuel oil and gasoline (petrol). Petroleum is also the raw material for many chemical products, including pharmaceuticals, solvents, fertilizers, pesticides, and plastics. The industry is usually divided into three major components; upstream, midstream and downstream.

We all know the role of oil in many nations oil is the main source of power from electricity up to the transportation. Petroleum is vital to many industries, and is of importance to the maintenance of industrial civilization itself, and thus is a critical concern for many nations. Oil accounts for a large percentage of the world’s energy consumption, ranging from a low of 32% for Europe and Asia, up to a high of 53% for the Middle East. Governments such as the United States government provide a heavy public subsidy to petroleum companies, with major tax breaks at virtually every stage of oil exploration and extraction, including for the cost of oil field leases and drilling equipment. Rig mats is doing a big role in the oil industry because a rig mat is a portable platform used to support equipment used in construction and other resource based activities, including drilling rigs, camps, tanks, and helipad. It may also be used as a structural roadway to provide passage over unstable ground, pipeline and more.

Would you imagine a world without oil? We all know the importance of oil n our daily life in the means of transportation with the overwhelming majority of the oil we produce and import devoted to powering our cars, motorcycles, trucks, trains, and planes, the impact on getting around would be more dramatic. Price gouging would begin right away, and long lines would format gas stations. Also our electricity will be gone without oil because we all know that most of electricity in every nation is generated from oil – coal carries the large burden, along with natural gas, nuclear and hydro electric power. But brownouts and blackouts would soon begin. Sure, our electricity is generated mostly from coal, but how would the coal be extracted without those diesel-guzzling yellow trucks? How would it be hauled to the power plants? (Remember, our trains all run on diesel, too). Heating and cooling our homes would suddenly get a lot more complicated, and our televisions and laptops would be just a few more weeks away from shutting off forever. Eating will get tougher, too. If no one can truck in fresh veggies from across the country, we might be inclined to go back to basics and grow our own food. We all know how hard to plant vegetables we will need to wait month before we eat.

We really can’t imagine living in a world without oil so thanks to all the people behind the oil industries that helping us to have a better life and to let us to live normally.
