What Is Oil And Gas?

An oil is any nonpolar chemical substance that is a viscous liquid at ambient temperatures and is both hydrophobic and lipophilic. Oils have a high carbon and hydrogen content and are usually flammable and surface active. Most oils are unsaturated lipids that are liquid at room temperature and Gas is one of the four fundamental states of matter. A pure gas may be made up of individual atoms, elemental molecules made from one type of atom, or compound molecules made from a variety of atoms. A gas mixture, such as air, contains a variety of pure gases.

Does Namibia have oil?

Namibia has no proven oil reserves, leading explorers in the region to favour Angola. The only existing commercially sized hydrocarbons discovery, the Kudu gas field, is still undeveloped after being discovered in the 1970s by Chevron.

What is oil and gas management?

Oil and gas management professionals are involved in the business, financial and regulatory concerns of the energy industry. They may work in oil exploration, production or commodities trading and are often involved in land management.

Where does Namibia get fuel from?

Namibia has no refinery capacity and therefore imports all her refined products from South Africa through the Walvis Bay harbour and rails in lubricants as well from South African refineries.

How long do you stay on an oil rig?

The usual working shift is 12 hours ‘on’ and 12 hours ‘off’, and many shift patterns are a mixture of both day and night because operations run around the clock with no rig ‘downtime’. Many offshore jobs require shift patterns of 2 or 3 weeks on the rig / 2-3 weeks onshore, but the patterns can be longer.

Is it hard to get a job on an oil rig?

As well as earning a wage, most offshore oil rig workers are provided food and board and some travel expenses. Getting your first job on an oil rig may be the toughest part of the process, because oil rig managers value experience. Find out how to become an oil rig worker.

How dangerous is oil rig work?

By any measure, drilling for oil and gas offshore is one of America’s most dangerous professions. The risks are unavoidable: workers are on shift for an average of 12-hours a day dealing with highly combustible materials on a platform where cranes swing heavy equipment constantly overhead.

Can you use a cell phone on an oil rig?

Even cellular services can be accessible at some locations offshore. Specifically, the US Gulf of Mexico has cellular towers installed offshore that allow cellular communications from rigs and platforms near the coast to onshore locations, allowing offshore workers to communicate through their own private cell phones.

Is smoke a gas?

Smoke is a collection of tiny solid, liquid and gas particles. Although smoke can contain hundreds of different chemicals and fumes, visible smoke is mostly carbon (soot), tar, oils and ash. Smoke occurs when there is incomplete combustion (not enough oxygen to burn the fuel completely).

Can you see gas?

There are few gases that humans can see. Actually, gases aren’t invisible: many are quite brightly coloured. Other gases in the atmosphere (particularly oxygen, carbon dioxide and water vapour) also absorb light, but at ultraviolet and infrared wavelengths that we can’t see.

How can you see gas without seeing?

How can you observe gases without seeing them? You can feel the wind blow. You can observe air movement, such as a waving flag or a turning windmill. You can also observe temperature and humidity changes in the air.

Does air have mass?

Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. Although air has mass, a small volume of air, such as the air in the balloons, doesn’t have too much. Air just isn’t very dense. We can show that the air in the balloon has mass by building a balance.

Is air matter Yes or no?

Matter is physical material, and it is the fundamental element in all of us, all of life, and all of the universe. But air? Yes, air does have mass and does take up physical space, so, yes, air is made of matter.

Why is there fire on oil rigs?

It’s called a flare. Typically, oil and gas facilities use them to get rid of unwanted natural gas that cannot be effectively captured and sold. (Either due to lack of export pipeline or for a safety blow-down to depressurize equipment filled with gas during an emergency.)

How does an oil derrick work?

The classic oil derrick pump is known colloquially as a sucker rod pump, named for the plunger-like mechanics it uses to pump oil from underground wells up to the surface. It uses a series of gears and cranks to pump a polished rod up and down an oil well in a piston-like motion, albeit much slower.
