A mixture of hydrocarbons that exists in liquid phase in natural underground reservoirs and remains liquid at atmospheric pressure after passing through surface separating facilities. Depending upon the characteristics of the crude stream, it may also include

1. Small amounts of hydrocarbons that exist in gaseous phase in natural underground reservoirs but are liquid at atmospheric pressure after being recovered from oil well (casing head) gas in lease separators and are subsequently coming led with the crude stream without being separately measured. Lease condensate recovered as a liquid from natural gas wells in lease or field separation facilities and later mixed into the crude stream is also included;

2. Small amounts of non-hydrocarbons produced with the oil, such as sulphur and various metals;

3. Drip gases, and liquid hydrocarbons produced from tar sands, oil sands, Gilsonite, and oil shale.

Liquids produced at natural gas processing plants are excluded. Crude oil is refined to produce a wide array of petroleum products, including heating oils; gasoline, diesel and jet fuels; lubricants; asphalt; ethane, propane, and butane; and many other products used for their energy or chemical content.

Catalytic cracking process was developed in1920 by Eugene Houdry for upgradation of residue was commercialized latter in 1930. Houdry process was based on cyclic fixed bed configuration. There has been continuous upgradation in catalytic cracking process from its incept of fixed bed technology to latter fluidized bed catalytic cracking (FCC).The feed stock for catalytic cracking is normally light gas oil from vacuum distillation column. Catalytic cracking cracks low value high molecular weight hydrocarbons to more value added products (low molecular weight) like gasoline, LPG Diesel along with very important petrochemical feedstock like propylene, C4 gases like isobutylene, Isobutane and butane.

Whatever progress oil haters and alternative energy sources would like to have on world oil demand, the price collapse is working. Demand for oil is supposed to increase by 1.5 million b/d in 2015 and 1.7 million b/d in 2016, up significantly from earlier estimates. This is driven partially by industrialization and partly by lower prices—U.S. gasoline demand is rising, as is the demand for bigger vehicles such as light trucks and SUVs.

The issue has been supply and the production surplus; the spread between supply and demand. Over this one-year period, supply has grown by 2.14 million b/d globally even though the price has been falling. As the surplus has increased, the price has gone in the opposite direction, with the exception of this year. However, this price-rise anomaly has since repaired itself.

Years of massive investments in new oil supplies clearly don’t shut off overnight, particularly if those projects have already seen companies invest billions of dollars and are on the home stretch of completion. Such is the case for Canada’s oil sands, which will add some 800,000 b/d in new production in the next three years, although green field projects have ground to a halt. The Gulf of Mexico and other long-term offshore development still have projects nearing or at the completion stage which will also add to future supply, regardless of current market conditions.

But what can be stopped, because it doesn’t make economic sense, has been cancelled or delayed. Tens of billions of future capital spending is on hold. Many producers are scaling back budgets further as prices remain stubbornly low. Conventional drilling in North America is the most responsive to price in either direction. The major decline in the Canadian and U.S. rig count is well known.

OPEC, which the world’s privately-owned oil industry has counted upon to maintain some stability in world oil markets for over 40 years, remains unpredictable. OPEC, which has an official quota of 30 million b/d, no longer even talks about enforcement as it pumps close to 32 million b/d, with Iran ready to add more. Less affluent OPEC members have been asking for cooperation and even talking to the Russians, but the low-cost Persian Gulf producers are staying the course, at least for now.


The global market for abrasive products and materials reached $36.6 billion in 2014. This market is expected to reach about $37.8 billion by 2015 and $44.2 billion by 2020, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.2% from 2015 to 2020.

Precautions in Oil and Gas Industry, Safety in petroleum refineries, Safety measures in drilling, Occupational and residential challenges, Environmental framework and regulation, Quality check and quality assurance The insinuation of implementing an occupational Safety and Health Management System at all workplaces came into limelight, when Global Strategy on Occupational Safety and Health Conclusions were adopted by the ‘International Labour Conference’ at its 91st session, 2003. The Strategy advocates the application of a systems approach to the management of national OSH systems. Also, Guidelines on Occupational Safety and Health Management Systems (ILO-OSH 2001) provide national/organizational framework for occupational Safety and Health Management Systems. As per these guidelines, the OSH management system should contain the main elements of policy, organizing, planning and implementation, evaluation and action for improvement.

It includes International Oil Markets, Energy Economics, Capital Cost Estimation, Factors that effect Profitability, Cash Flow, Depletion, Depreciation, Affiliation, New technologies that depletes petroleum cost. Petroleum exploration and production economics centre on the size and nature of oil and gas reserves in relation to oil and gas prices. A Process Economics said to have two key assets

1. Its people and their ability to profitably find (or acquire), develop, and produce oil and gas reserves and

2. Its existing reserves and their ability, when produced, to generate positive cash flow.

The ability to apply new technology (such as 3D seismic, horizontal drilling, deep water drilling and production techniques and global internet knowledge sharing) will be key to managing risks and adding billions in reserve value for the industry in the coming decade. managements appreciate that true exploration success is not measured by the success ratio, i.e., the number of producible wells to total wells drilled. A ten-well program with discovery of a single large reservoir may be far more profitable than a ten-well program discovering five marginally economic reservoirs. Nor is exploration success truly measured by the quantity of reserves found. In many remote parts of the world, large quantities of gas reserves have been found that have relatively limited value because transportation costs to gas markets are so high.

Petroleum-derived contaminants constitute one of the most prevalent sources of environmental degradation in the industrialized world. In large concentrations, the hydrocarbon molecules that make up crude oil and petroleum products are highly toxic to many organisms, including humans. Petroleum also contains trace amounts of sulfur and nitrogen compounds, which are dangerous by themselves and can react with the environment to produce secondary poisonous chemicals. The dominance of petroleum products in the United States and the world economy creates the conditions for distributing large amounts of these toxins into populated areas and ecosystems around the globe.
