OIL AND GAS 1.1C INTRODUCTION (USES AND IMPORTANCE OF OIL AND GAS)

USES AND IMPORTANCE OF OIL.

  • Energy: for internal combustion engines and for heating.
  • Liquefied gas for cooking and powering cigarette lighters.
  • Chemicals used in laboratories (for example sulphuric acid).
  • For the manufacturing of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products like Vaseline.
  • Wax used in packaging food.
  • Bitumen for roads.
  • Used for manufacturing plastics.

In conclusion, the presence of oil has far reaching effects on a nation’s economy and politics. However, with the recent development in nuclear, solar and electric energy, the demand for oil is dropping. Petroleum may eventually go extinct (like its predecessor, coal).
