Executive Summary “Petroleum – General Information and Resources” Petroleum is a non-renewable energy resource whose supply is depleting by the day, sooner or later we are going to run out of this crucial and valuable commodity that we dispense of so quickly and unwillingly throughout our lives. The word petroleum refers to crude oil, or the refined products obtained from the processing of crude oil – gasoline, diesel, heating oil and others. Petroleum products are in every aspect of our lives. We see them in the gasoline we use to power our vehicles to the warmth of a home. However, petroleum- based components are also used in plastics, medicines, food items, and a host of other products that we procure throughout our daily lives. Eventually, the world’s supply of oil is going to run out and we are going to have to resort to other energy resources that are not derived from fossil fuels. This report reviews and briefly summarizes the information of five internet websites: United States Geological Survey (USGS) - Energy Resource Program “The USGS Energy Resources Program provides impartial, scientifically robust information to advance the understanding of geologically based energy resources, to contribute to plans for a secure energy future, and to facilitate evaluation and responsible use of resources.” BP – Statistical Review of World Energy 2007 – Petroleum They are one of the world’s largest energy companies whose researchers are collecting and analyzing data about world energy resources. They are considered to be a valid resource by the government and private sectors. Energy Information Administration (EIA) Is the U.S. Government’s Official Energy Statistics department. International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association “IPIECA is the single global association representing both the upstream and downstream oil and gas industry on key global environmental and social issues.” National Petroleum Council An oil and natural gas advisory committee to the Secretary of Energy 3
