Index / Conventional Oil & Gas Resources

Oil and natural gas touch our lives in countless ways every day. Together, they supply more than 60 percent of our nation’s energy. They fuel our cars, heat our homes and cook our food.

But did you know that oil and natural gas also help generate the electricity that powers our daily lives? Or that crude oil supplies the building blocks for everything from dent-resistant car fenders to soft drink bottles to camping equipment?

The peak in production of any nonrenewable resource is a very critical point. At that point, demand remains the same, but supply drops off. The first result is rapidly increasing prices. Secondary results include substitution and conservation.

Dr. Conca opines that oil is more plentiful than we all imagined. And we keep figuring out easier and more economical ways to get it out of the ground, but what are we going to do with it in the future?

In 1938, the famous geologist M. King Hubbert came up with the concept of peak oil, which is defined as having extracted half of the recoverable, conventional oil reserves. After that, oil production declines and cannot keep up with growing demand as the population continues to rise.

In Hubbert time, most of the conventional oil reserves had already been discovered. Hubber... More →

Between March and May 27th, with the Gulf of Mexico oil spill intervening, Americans' preferences for prioritizing between environmental protection and energy production have shifted from a somewhat pro-energy stance to an even stronger pro-environment stance. The new results are based on a May 24-25 USA Today/Gallup poll. In March, by 50% to 43%, Americans said it was more important to develop U.S. energy supplies than to protect the environment, continuing a trend in the direction of energy production seen since 2007. Now, the majority favor environmental protection, by 55% to 39% the secon... More →

G. Allen Brooks opines that after enunciating an energy policy in March 2012 that was based on the concept of an all of the above resource strategy, President Obama has abandoned it in his recent energy policy actions. First, he rejected the Keystone XL pipeline, and now he is ditching the Atlantic Lease 260 sale from the proposed five-year offshore oil and gas lease sale program for 2017-2022.

Even more recently, the President has directed that the government tighten air pollution standards for offshore drilling. The removal of Atlantic Lease 260 is a reversal of his previous poli... More →

Chapter 5 - Natural Gas
Natural gas is one of the most abundant energy sources in the world. Like oil, it is created by the decomposition of organic matter. The lightest of all hydrocarbons, natural gas is commonly found in underground formations either by itself; associated with or lying atop oil deposits; or dissolved in crude oil. Texas is the nation’s largest producer and consumer of natural gas, providing one-fourth of U.S. supplies and consuming one-sixth, primarily in the industrial and electricity generation sectors. Once burned as an oilfield waste product, natural gas now ... More →

Chapter 4 - Crude Oil
We live in what has been called the Petroleum Age. This hydrocarbon-rich mixture of crude oil and gases runs our factories, our cars, heats some homes and has provided Americans with an unprecedented standard of living since its discovery in America in 1859. Petroleum is an extremely versatile substance; refining it creates everything from asphalt and gasoline to lighter fluids and natural gas, along with a variety of essential elements such as sulphur and nitrogen. Petroleum products are also vital ingredients (“feedstocks”) in the manufacture of medici... More →
