Petroleum Oil Company
Oil covers the significant percentage of the world's energy needs. Crude oil is essential for the industries, and it is obligatory for sustaining an industrialized society. Petroleum is derived from rock, and it is in the form of crude oil in porous rocks beneath the surface of the earth. Petroleum is used in many ways in our daily life. Plastic is obtained from petroleum and plastic is used in toys, cars, computers, clothing, and houses. Even the furniture, fertilizers, detergents, pesticides, photographic film, paints, and synthetic rubber are the byproducts of petroleum. Therefore, petroleum has brought to human civilization the luxuries and quality of life as well as proved a source of income to energy traders.
Saudi Arabia, United States, and Russia are the three top oil producing countries all over the world. Approximately, 62% accessible reserves are derived from merely the Arab countries like Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, U.A.E., and Qatar. Billions of people from various corners of the earth are employed to produce or find petroleum and refine it. Petroleum is cheaper than the environmental energy forms like solar and wind power. It is easily transportable unlike the hydrogen or even natural gas.
Nevertheless, there are five leading global oil companies around the world. Saudi Arabian Oil Company is the Saudi 'Aramco' oil company of Saudi Arabia. It is considered as the world's largest company for the verified petroleum reserves and output. Here, Aramco is an acronym of the Arabian American Oil Company. Followed by this, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company is one of the leading oil companies in the world for its major stockpiles. It is located in the United Arab Emirates. It is a fully integrated company and works for the processes of petroleum industry. The National Iranian Oil Company is the next biggest petroleum company in the world. It is located in Tehran, which is the capital of Iran. Qatar Petroleum is one of the largest oil companies throughout the world, which is famous for its gas and oil stockpiles. The last but not the least, 'Petroleos de Venezuela' is a crude oil company of South America. It has activities of exploration, production, refinement, and storage of oil and natural gas.
Nowadays, the oil production is decreasing and this has affected all the leading global oil companies. That is why the reserves of these companies are gradually decreasing. It is, therefore, necessary for these companies to expand their exploration so that they may find new petroleum fields in order to increase their production. It is expected that trillions of dollars will be exhausted in the next two decades in the search of gas and oil.
