Merits of the Oil and Gas Industry

Oil and gas can be tagged as the best way of solving energy issues. All the industries that produce energy that is produced and sold to the worlds are all under energy industry. The rate at which energy is being consumed in the current world is alarming. Operating and maintaining the society needs a great deal of energy. Depending on the lifestyle we live, different industries produce energy for our use. Among the many industries are petroleum industry, gas industry, electric industry, coal industry, nuclear power industry etc. A bigger part of the energy industry today id held by gas and oil industries.

The process of exploring, extracting, refining and marketing petroleum products is referred to as petroleum industry. Popularly, fuel oil, gasoline and petroleum are the most used forms of oil in the world today. The beginning of the use of petroleum dates to almost 5000 years ago. Early man made fire using oil and used it during wars. Oil has a lot of uses in the recent world. Many chemical products use oil as a raw material. Fertilizers, plastic and even pharmaceutical solvents have been made by the use of oil.

Petroleum has been used in many industries in producing energy. Most of the machines in big industries can barely operate without petroleum. Oil in the form of fuel has been used in the transport system to make vehicles move. It is an important factor in transport system. At home people get cooking heat and light using paraffin. It is therefore a very necessary thing to the society.

Gas energy is very essential to the world. Natural gas is very important in solving the energy issues. Compared to other sources of energy, gas energy has the least emission of carbon to the air. In comparison, gas produces less carbon to the air than oil. Considering energy conservation; gas energy still stands to be the best.

Energy production using gas can be done in so many ways today. There has been development of the gas burners that are used to produce fire for cooking. The time use in cooking is less and the fire strength can easily be altered. In the very developed countries gas is compressed and made to be liquid in form for use to drive buses and trains. Gas has also been used to generate power more effectively and cheaply. The development of gas has led to it being the main source of energy in countries like Canada.

Oil and gas have been so benefiting to the economy. They have helped in creating more job opportunities to the jobless people in the world. The community at large has benefited from the drilling activities in their areas as there has been an increased rate of local businesses.
