The Petroleum Industry - The Future

4.0 2 Reviews SKU: RV-10526Duration: 60 Minutes

Crude oil is the major source of fuel used in the modern world, and the crude oil sector is the largest and most dominant economic sector of business in the United States. The United States has come not only to rely on crude oil but the nation is also addicted to crude oil. Cures for this addiction are possible, such as a reduction in the amount of oil required for daily life, but will take time and are unlikely to succeed in the near term. This course discusses the future of the petroleum industry and illustrates how the increasing demand for energy affects both crude oil resources and production of alternative fuels.
