What would a world without oil and gas look like? Dark, uncomfortable and polluted.
Global oil and gas consumption is expected to grow significantly in the coming decades, particularly in the developing world. These hydrocarbons are abundant, affordable and provide enormous quantities of energy per unit volume or per acre. Oil and gas energizes lives and are vital to economic and population growth. Hydrocarbons fuel transportation, as well as heating and cooling homes, businesses, hospitals and more. Further, these versatile hydrocarbons are also irreplaceable as a feedstock to create plastics and other materials used to manufacture the tools and toys we use everyday.
Oil and gas provide two-thirds of the energy consumed in the USA.
What We Provide
Oil & Gas: Make The Smart Energy Choice
Oil and gas provide significant “bang for the buck”, compared to other fuels.
How Hydrocarbons Drive Jobs and the Economy
As the most abundant, affordable and reliable energy source, fueling most of the planet’s power and electricity needs, oil and gas hydrocarbons also provide value in another very significant way: Jobs.
More Than a Fuel
Thousands of the products we depend on every day are made from hydrocarbons: the food we eat, the clothes on our backs, cosmetics and skin care products, soaps and detergents, building materials, toys and much more.
Coal: Did You Know?
The world enjoys many options to fuel electrical power plants. Coal is one, but brings with it horrific environmental and health impacts. Entire mountaintops are removed to mine coal.
Value of Hydrocarbons
Increased use of hydrocarbons correlates directly with improvements in standards of living, including longer life expectancy, lower infant mortality and personal wealth.
Energizing Transportation with Oil and Gas
Oil and gas has revolutionized transportation and enabled today’s modern, mobile society.
Renewables: Did You Know?
Despite the hype over renewable energy sources, often hidden is a dark side when it comes to environmental, safety and human rights issues -- issues related to pollution, serious safety hazards, habitat destruction, and land degradation.
Mining the rare-earth metals required for wind turbines and batteries for electric cars produces five times more waste gas than all the miners and oil refiners in the U.S. and produces thirteen billion meters of gas and twenty-five million tons of wastewater laden with carcinogenic metals. In addition to this severe pollution, these materials also hide a dark story of child labor and abusive working conditions.
