Palm Oil

...The Growing Demand for Palm Oil in India With the world’s second largest population of 1.2 billion and its oils and fats consumption estimated at 17.8 million tonnes in 2010, India becomes one of the world’s leading oils and fats economies. India is one of the largest producers of oilseeds in the world, both in terms of the area and output. However, India is the third world’s leading importer of oils and fats in 2010. India’s oils and fats production have not been able to keep pace with the large demand in the country. Estimates indicate that while the oils and fats output grew at about two percent per annum over the past four years, consumption has grown at some seven percent per annum; hence import of oils and fats is necessary to fill the gap between production and consumption. The total consumption of oils and fats for 2010 was 17.8 million tonnes while local production was only able to cater 9.0 million tonnes. Palm Oil – Continue to be Major Importing Oil by India Palm oil has been the major imported oil by India which has become the world’s largest importer of palm oil. In 2010, a total of 6.58 million tonnes of palm oil were imported and it constituted about 70% of India’s total imports. Most of the palm oil imported into India is in the form of crude palm oil. The main two exporters of palm oil to India are Malaysia and Indonesia with Indonesia having the market share of 80% approximately. The large market share of palm oil in India’s oils and fats imports is...

Oil Companies

...Oil Companies: Where Should the Money be Spent? Jerrilynn N. Stanwood, Stephen Myers, Min Kim, Josue Fernandez, and Angel Paz California State University Long Beach Introduction Our case study was on major oil corporations and how they constantly advertise their business in the media but never present their mistakes to the public eye unless they just so happen to hit newspapers or television. Oil companies should always be concerned in making sure that all their equipment is running correctly and safety procedures are put into place in order to insure that they do not make any errors. This is especially true for off-shore drilling. Mistakes can cause great amounts of damage to wildlife and to people as well. An oil company that spends any amount of money advertising to the community about their work with the environment and endangered species should also be able to do the same and admit when they have make an error. Our group was faced with a question of whether oil companies should spend more time and money on preventing oil spills or building shelters for some of the endangered species and we found it more important to spend money on preventing the oil spills. Oils spills are always happening. They are mostly small but sometimes they can be large and catastrophic for both land and sea. An example of this problem can be related to BP’s 2010 oil spill caused by off-shore drilling. Big oil companies have “a powerful partner in the U.S. government, which isn't eager to...

Property damage cases may be handled by filing a claim through the $20 billion compensation fund set up by BP. (See "BP Compensation Fund: Filing a Claim," below.) * Health problems and health risks from oil and chemical dispersants. Residents in the Gulf region have filed lawsuits over the health problems and health risks caused by the presence of oil on or near coastal property and the dangers posed by the potentially toxic chemicals that have been used to disperse the spilled oil. (Learn more about these kinds of toxic chemical cases in Nolo's Toxic Torts FAQ.) * Injuries and health risks from cleanup. A number of people who went to work cleaning up and burning off oil in the Gulf in the months after the spill have filed claims for health problems allegedly linked to the cleanup (including headaches, nausea, and throat irritation). * Wrongful death and injury claims by rig workers and their families. Some families of the 11 workers killed in the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon have filed wrongful death lawsuits against BP and Transocean. (Learn more about wrongful death lawsuits in Nolo's article Wrongful Death Claims: Overview). Those companies have also been sued for negligence by the surviving drill rig workers who suffered injury that day. * BP shareholder lawsuits. Dozens of......

Atlas* University of Louisville, Louisville Kentucky 40292, United States Terry C. Hazen Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, California 94720, United States ABSTRACT: The devastating environmental impacts of the Exxon Valdez spill in 1989 and its media notoriety made it a frequent comparison to the BP Deepwater Horizon spill in the popular press in 2010, even though the nature of the two spills and the environments impacted were vastly di erent. Fortunately, unlike higher organisms that are adversely impacted by oil spills, microorganisms are able to consume petroleum hydrocarbons. These oil degrading indigenous microorganisms played a signi cant role in reducing the overall environmental impact of both the Exxon Valdez and BP Deepwater Horizon oil spills. ’ INTRODUCTION TO BIODEGRADATION OF PETROLEUM HYDROCARBONS Petroleum hydrocarbons in crude oils, such as those released into marine ecosystems by the Exxon Valdez and BP Deepwater Horizon spills, are natural products derived from aquatic algae laid down between 180 and 85 million years ago. Crude oils, composed mostly of diverse aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, regularly escape into the environment from underground reservoirs. Because petroleum hydrocarbons occur naturally in all marine environments, there has been time for numerous diverse microorganisms to evolve the...

Oil Prices

..., Cavallo managed to use her model to prove that higher oil prices and higher costs of petroleum imports have in fact accounted for over 50% of the deterioration in the overall U.S trade deficit during that period. Specifically, the growth of petroleum-related trade had increased from $14 billion to $26 billion indicating the deterioration accounts close to 80% of overall trade deficit. After proving there is in fact a significant association between the increase in oil prices and trade deficit, Cavallo examined a study by Rebucci and Spatafora to determine how the U.S adjusts to such a high increase in oil prices with a large trading deficit. With the increase of oil prices, household and businesses began to see an increase of prices for goods, services and economic activities due to the ubiquitous presence of oil as a source of energy. Third-parties also began seeing a reduction of real income and therefore an overall lower level of consumption. The chain reaction of higher oil prices and lower levels of consumptions caused a dramatic change in domestic nonpetroleum demand for consumption and investment. Generating a lower overall demand for domestic tradable in terms of foreign tradable, the increase of excess of supply began reducing the economic growth ultimately leading to a decline in their relative prices and an increase in exports for nonpetroleum trade. In turn, the new trade balance improvement helps the overall trade deficit, so that, eventually, it returns to......

Oil Levies

... and their use of the capacity of their domestic refinery capacities will decrease. The result will be that wholesale prices for refined products will remain virtually with no changes. Q2. Effects of a $10 per Barrel Tariff The levying of such a tax on the importation of refined products will make the domestic prices have elevation above world levels by $10/barrel in contrast to the $5/barrel levies on crude oil. The distributors of the refined products will then have to pay prices that equal the world prices in addition to taxes owed to their suppliers. Such a move will widen the American refineries profit margins while shifting the imports mix more towards crude oil than the refined products. The domestic oil refineries will also see their profit margins before tax rise by a similar amount to the tax set. However, as many users of the refined products compete indirectly or directly with distant suppliers of various products or services, the profit margins in the remaining economy will decrease. Thus, the production facilities in America will experience stiff competition from the foreign markets and will increasingly find it difficult to pass these high energy prices to the customers. The energy tax will hurt most industries that face stiff foreign competition from other energy intensive industries. Therefore, the consumers will seek to obtain foreign oil which is cheaper and if the taxes on crude oil obstruct its importation, they will find a replacement through the...

... negotiation strategy, Pacific lost credibility during the negotiation process. It also caused mediations to be drug out as each time Reliant came back to the table, Pacific had to leave in order to gather information about Reliant and how to meet their new demands. By not preparing or predicting for Reliants new needs Pacific did not have a prepared contingency plan or use a negotiation strategy that explored alternatives during the negotiations. PACIFIC OIL Pacific Oil assumed that since they had a long-standing relationship with Reliant Oil that their contract renewal would just fall into place. This assumption in the long run is what cost Pacific Oil so much during negotiations. Assuming the other party is on the same playing field is a mistake that is easy to make but that is also highly costly to the assuming party. It means they lose precious time preparing concessions for the negotiations, as well as setting limits as to what they are willing to give up in order to reach their goal. By not being properly prepared, Pacific Oil ended up losing most of their negotiation power and relinquished to Reliant Chemical Company. As the negotiations went on, Pacific Oil became more dependent on resolving the negotiations in order to save travel costs and begin working on technology development. This put the ball in Reliants court. Reliant Chemical company used this opportunity to implement an agreement with Pacific Oil, allowing them the upper hand during the final......

The diagram below illustrates the OPEC world share of crude oil reserves in 2012. Source: (OPEC, 2013) UNCONVENTIONAL OIL According to US Department of Energy, there’s no specific definition for unconventional oil. The unconventional oil is a type of petroleum been produced with the use of techniques different from the conventional method i.e. oil well (Dyni & John, 2006). As a result of high increase in the scarcity of the reserves of conventional oil, government and oil industries are investing more on sources of unconventional oil. SOURCES OF UNCONVENTIONAL OIL The International Energy Agency (IEA) world Energy Outlook (2001), the following are considered as the sources of unconventional oil; * Oil Shales * Oil sand * Coal based liquid supplies * Biomass based liquid supplies * Gas to Liquid: These are liquids that are gotten from gas chemical processing CONVENTIONAL OIL According to IEA, (2013), “Conventional oil is a category that includes crude oil and natural gas and its condensates”.

Oil Spills

... of time in the environment and will have different degrees of toxicity. Ultimately, the effects of any oil depend on where it is spilled, where it goes, and what animals and plants, or people, it affects. In conclusion, oil spills can affect animals and plants in two ways: from the oil itself and from the response or cleanup operations. Understanding both types of impacts can help spill responders minimize overall impacts to ecological communities and help them to recover much more quickly.

Oil Politics

... were discovered in the Near East, first in Iraq, in the early years of the century, and then in Saudia Arabia during the 1930,s.  Close cooperation was forged between Saudia Arabia, a major producer of oil, and the United States, the largest consumer of oil. The abundance of oil fueled the war effort of the United States and its allies in World War II. Pipelines extended across the United States during the war protected oil deliveries from the threat of  the German submarine. By the end of the war, oil had replaced coal as the principal source of energy used to fuel the U.S. economy.     The investment and the technical expertise of the major oil companies gave them a controlling position in determining the rate of production and pricing of oil, both in the United States and abroad.  After World War II, there were two price levels that were maintained by the major oil companies. One was a domestic price in the United States and the other was an international price. Reflecting the fact that the United States economy was the first national economy to widely exploit the use of oil, and the first to mass produce automobiles, and the first to develop a civilian airline industry, the United States was the largest consumer of oil. Meanwhile, as Near Eastern oil reserves were tapped, that area became the largest producer of oil. This resulted in a greater abundance of oil abroad than in the United States, which led to the two different price levels. During the 1950,s, the......

Crude Oil

...Alien Article for Crude Oil Crude oil: good or bad? You decide Recently I have discovered an interesting fuel which humans use. It is a sludgy, black, gloopy liquid like fuel called “crude oil”. They have found it in many of the earth’s oceans and I believe it has come from many dead animals piling on top of each other but didn’t decay properly because of the anaerobic conditions making layers of rock. The heat of the rocks and the increased pressure turned the dead animals into crude oil. I have found out that they put crude oil into a machine and separate using an interesting method called fractional distillation. Fractional distillation of crude oil is where they separate out oil into hydrocarbons with similar boiling points, called fractions. Each hydrocarbon fraction contains molecules with similar numbers of carbon atoms. To my understanding I think each of these fractions boils at a different temperature range. That is because the different sizes of their molecules. One bad thing about crude oil is that it can’t be used in its own form, so the humans diffract it into many other things such as petrol, lubricating oil, naphtha, kerosene etc. At the bottom of the fractional column they use longer chains with more carbon atoms and at the top of the fractional column it has a cooler temperature and the chains are quite short. Hydrocarbons with low boiling points can get all the way to the top before they condense. The crude oil is evaporated and its vapours allow it to...

Oil Pollution

... profit for countries like Russia and Saudi Arabia that are selling and profiting from the sales of oil barrels. Foreign trade is an important part of the global economy. The total world consumption in approximately 84 million barrels per day (as of 2005), and as of 2011, the world consumes 87.421 million barrels of oil each day. The highest consumers of oil are the USA and Canada. As seen in the 2011 consumption statistic that people use around 87 million barrels of oil each day this results into 3.642 million barrels per hour, 0.06 million barrels per minute. The main countries that import oil include Japan and the USA. Both countries import 5,000,000. Oil imports in the USA and in Japan are decreasing. In 2005 America imported around 11 million barrels per day, this has dramatically dropped to around 8.5 million barrels in 2014. In the last century the USA and Japan were the top 2 importers of oil, from the 1960’s onwards, however at the turn of the century countries including China, India and South Korea starting importing more oil. In fact China and India have overtaken Japan in oil imports. The USA still remain at the top, but this change in oil importers is due to the change from a third world country to a first world, China is aiming to drag out of China poverty so therefore their industries are in higher demand forcing them to import more oil. So countries like China, need imported oil to sustain their movement from a third world country to a first world country.......
