Why Oil is Important

Oil is the single biggest source of primary energy. It accounts for about a third of all energy used by humans.

"The technological era" would not be here without energy, and specifically oil and gas. Where do you think the raw-materials for those computer chips running "the technological era" came from?  And where do you think the energy to run them came from? And how did they get here? All with energy - and predominately oil!

 

Oil is the lifeblood of industrialised nation's. Oil has become the world's most important source of energy since the mid-1950s. Its products underpin modern society, mainly supplying energy to power industry, heat homes and provide fuel for vehicles and aeroplanes to carry goods and people all over the world.

 

In fact, oil meets 97 percent of the UK transport sector demand. In addition, it also benefits our lives and is vital to the production of many everyday essentials. Oil’s refined products are used to manufacture almost all products, such as plastics, fertilisers, detergents, paints and even medicines, plus a whole host of other products that you might not expect. Here are some examples of what we owe to oil, every day of our lives:

 

At school: rulers, crayons, ink and cartridges, glue, coverings on books, binders...


For your health: coatings for pills, a binding agent for creams, disposable syringes...

 

In the home: contact lenses, cosmetics, clothing, fabrics, nail polish, deodorants, shampoo, toothpaste, paint, upholstery and carpets, detergents for washing up and laundry, dry-cleaning fluid...


Out shopping: shopping bags, credit cards, egg cartons, plastic milk bottles...

 

While cooking: non-stick pans, cling film, storage containers...

 

For building: roofing tiles, pipes, insulating material, paint...

 

On the move: petrol and diesel for cars and lorries, emergency services and trains, asphalt road surfaces...

 

In the office: computer hardware, phones, faxes, diskettes, pens, chairs, printing ink...

 

At your leisure: CDs, videos, cassette tapes, camera film, artists' paint, bicycle handlebar grips, tyres, crash helmets, football boots, trainers, shin pads, windsurfers, roller blades... Garden: fertilisers, pesticides, garden furniture...

 

Oil is one of the most important raw materials we have, every day we use hundreds of things as you can see that are made from oil or gas. Oil and gas are also important for the number of jobs they provide. Tens of thousands of people work in the oil and gas industry. Each week Britain produces about two million tonnes of oil and gas. This is worth about £37 million pounds a day to the people of Britain. Source: Internationa Energy Agency (IEA)
