petroleum

Oil has been collected in pools and seeps for over thousands of years. The Chinese are recorded as having extracted oil from wells in 347. Oil was first produced in Pennsylvania (USA) in 1859 by Edwin L Drake, who refined it into kerosene. The invention of the motor car by Karl Friedrich Benz in 1885 created a market for petrol, a new refined product. In 1898, Rudolf Diesel invented the diesel engine, which came to power larger vehicles, principally trucks and buses. After this, the production and use of motor vehicles spread rapidly in the United States, especially since Henry Ford began mass manufacture of his Model T. 


The oil and gas industry ranks amongst India's eight core industries. In actuality, the Indian government has already planned to leapfrog into BS-VI auto-fuels all over the country effective April 1, 2020.


Petroleum, mainly used as an industrial, domestic and vehicular fuel; is extracted from underground reserves and then refined into end products for various uses. The petroleum industry can therefore be sectionalised into two parts: an oil exploration and production industry upstream and a refinery industry downstream. 


Crude oil is of paramount significance in this industry. It is a liquid mixture of hydrocarbons – chemical compounds consisting roughly of six parts of carbon and one of hydrogen, both of which are fuels; it generally also carries small quantities of sulphur, salts, metals, oxygen and nitrogen. India imports three-quarters of the crude it refines and exports refinery products worth roughly ten per cent of production. The government operates a set of cross-subsidies to insulate domestic from international prices; which has serious implications on the finances of the Indian companies involved. This is why testing and conservation of this natural resource is extremely essential for the economic growth of our country. India is the largest consumer of crude oil and petroleum products in the world and second largest refiner in Asia.
