WHAT IS CRUDE OIL?
  • CRUDE OIL OR PETROLEUM IS A FOSSIL FUEL (ALONG
    WITH COAL/NATURAL GAS)
  • DECAYED PLANT AND ANIMAL MATTER-MILLIONS OF YEARS
  • NONRENEWABLE RESOURCE

21
oil
  • 1 barrel of oil42 gallons
  • 42 gallons of crude oil will become 19 gallons of
    fuel
  • Crude oil-how it comes out of the ground
  • Oil refinery-turns crude into products

22
Top oil producers
  • The world produces 85 million barrels per day
  • 1 Saudi Arabia
  • 2 Russia
  • 3 USA ?
  • 4 China
  • 5 Canada
  • 6 UAE

23
Top Consumers
  • 1 USA 19 MILLION BARRELS PER DAY
  • 2 CHINA 9 MILLION
  • 3 JAPAN
  • 4 INDIA
  • THE USA CONSUMED 6.8 BILLION BARRELS IN 2011
