The geology and geochemistry of petroleum are becoming ever more important as the demand for fossil fuels increases worldwide. We must find new hydrocarbon reserves that are hidden in almost inaccessible areas. Our knowledge of petroleum geology and geochemistry is the best intellectual tool that we have for the never ending search for rich new deposits of hydrocarbons. The geology of the rocks under deep oceans and on continental shelves has become much more important as advances in technology permit drilling in these areas. Developments in petroleum geology and geochemistry, and advances in seismic and well-logging measurements, provide a better understanding of the evaluation of subsurface sedimentary deposits and the migration, entrapment, and production of hydrocarbons.

To reduce uncertainty in drilling and production, oil and gas company geologists and engineers conduct sophisticated and complex simulation and seismic analyses, including 3D modeling to represent the fluid and rock properties of the subsurface and 4D modeling technology that includes production histories. Oil and gas reservoir simulations represents an essential tool for the management of oil and gas reservoirs, and a key aspect of reservoir simulation is the representation of the well in the simulator and the linkage of the well to the reservoir.

Petroleum is a complex mixture of organic liquids called crude oil and natural gas, which occurs naturally in the ground and was formed millions of years ago. Crude oil varies from oilfield to oilfield in color and composition, from a pale yellow low viscosity liquid to heavy black 'treacle' consistencies. Crude oil and natural gas are extracted from the ground, on land or under the oceans, by sinking an oil well and are then transported by pipeline and/or ship to refineries where their components are processed into refined products. Crude oil and natural gas are of little use in their raw state; their value lies in what is created from them: fuels, lubricating oils, waxes, asphalt, petrochemicals and pipeline quality natural gas.

Crude petroleum is heated and changed into a gas. The hot gases are passed into the bottom of a distillation column and become cooler as they move up the height of the column. As the gases cool below their boiling point, they condense into a liquid. The liquids are then drawn off the distilling column at specific heights, ranging from heavy reside at the bottom, raw diesel fuels in the mid-sections, and raw gasoline at the top. These raw fractions are then processed further to make several different finished products. The simplest refineries consist of crude, vacuum, reforming and some hydrotreating capacity. The next level of complexity adds cat cracking and some additional hydrotreating. The most complex refineries add coking, more hydrotreating and hydrocracking.
Most refineries, regardless of complexity, perform a few basic steps in the refining process: Distillation, Cracking, Treating and Reforming. These processes occur in our main operating areas Crude/Aromatics, Cracking I, RDS/Coker, Cracking II, and at the Sulfur Recovery Unit.

Recovery is at the heart of oil production from underground reservoirs. If the average worldwide recovery factor from hydrocarbon reservoirs can be increased beyond current limits, it will alleviate a number of issues related to global energy supply. Currently the daily oil production comes from mature or maturing oil fields and reserves replacement is not keeping pace with the growing energy demand. The world average recovery factor from hydrocarbon reservoirs is stuck in the mid-30 per cent range. This challenge becomes an opportunity for advanced secondary and enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technologies that may mitigate the demand-supply balance. The terms of oil recovery, as defined by the Society of Petroleum Engineers Primary and secondary recovery (conventional recovery) targets mobile oil in the reservoir and tertiary recovery or EOR targets immobile oil (that oil which cannot be produced due to capillary and viscous forces).

Chemical obtained either directly from cracking (pyrolysis), or indirectly from chemical processing, of petroleum Oil or natural gas. Major petrochemicals are acetylene, benzene, ethane, ethylene, methane, propane, and hydrogen, from which hundreds of other chemicals are derived. These derivatives are used as elastomers, fibers, plasticizers, and solvents, and as feedstock for production of thousands of other products.
Primary raw materials are naturally occurring substances that have not been subjected to chemical changes after being recovered. Natural gas and crude oils are the basic raw materials for the manufacture of petrochemicals. Secondary raw materials, or intermediates, are obtained from natural gas and crude oils through different processing schemes. The intermediates may be light hydrocarbon compounds such as methane and ethane, or heavier hydrocarbon mixtures such as naphtha or gas oil. Both naphtha and gas oil are crude oil fractions with different boiling ranges.

Increased energy demands, as well as the need for ecologically acceptable fuels that would replace highly polluting fossil fuels are the main reasons behind many different alternative energy researches. One segment of the alternative fuel market that has been recently gaining plenty of popularity is biofuels. The definition for biofuels is any liquid fuel that originates from renewable plant materials. When we compare biofuels with the gasoline we can see that the gasoline is refined from limited crude oil supplies, while biofuel can be produced from a number of organic sources that are not limited like oil is. According to some energy experts, biofuels are the only renewable energy sector that is capable to replace currently dominant fossil fuels.

Petroleum refinery is an industrial process plant where crude oil is processed and refined into more useful petroleum products, such as gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene, and liquefied petroleum gas. Oil refineries are typically large sprawling industrial complexes with extensive piping running throughout, carrying streams of fluids between large chemical processing units. In many ways, oil refineries use much of the technology of, and can be thought of as types of chemical plants. The crude oil feedstock has typically been processed by an oil production plant. There is usually an oil depot (tank farm) at or near an oil refinery for storage of bulk liquid products.

Renewable energy is becoming an increasingly important issue in today's world. In addition to the rising cost of fossil fuels and the threat of Climate Change, there have also been positive developments in this field which include improvements in efficiency as well as diminishing prices.
To increase the demand for alternative energy and accelerated the transition towards cleaner, more sustainable methods of electrical power. However, it is important to note that are many kinds like biomass, solar and geothermal power and that each has its own share of advantages and drawbacks. The most widely used form of renewable energy is biomass. Biomass simply refers to the use of organic materials and converting them into other forms of energy that can be used. Although some forms of biomass have been used for centuries such as burning wood other, newer methods are focused on methods that don't produce carbon dioxide. Fossil fuels are non-renewable because they will run out one day. Burning fossil fuels generates greenhouse gases and relying on them for energy generation is unsustainable. Hence the need to find more renewable, sustainable ways of generating energy. Renewable or infinite energy resources are sources of power that quickly replenish themselves and can be used again and again.

Reservoir simulation is a complement to field observations, pilot field and laboratory tests, well testing and analytical models and is used to estimate production characteristics, calibrate reservoir parameters, visualize reservoir flow patterns, etc. The main purpose of simulation is to provide an information database that can help the oil companies to position and manage wells and well trajectories to maximize the oil and gas recovery. Generally, the value of simulation studies depends on what kind of extra monetary or other profit they will lead to, e.g., by increasing the recovery from a given reservoir. However, even though reservoir simulation can be an invaluable tool to enhance oil-recovery, the demand for simulation studies depends on many factors. For instance, petroleum fields vary in size from small pockets of hydrocarbon that may be buried just a few meters beneath the surface of the earth and can easily be produced, to huge reservoirs stretching out several square kilometers beneath remote and Stormy seas, for which extensive simulation studies are inevitable to avoid making incorrect, costly decisions.

Today’s lower oil price, pressure to generate power from renewable energy sources, or increasingly complex government regulations, today’s business realities are forcing new approaches. In the longer term, these new approaches are required to increase operating efficiencies, increase revenues, and improve competitiveness. Embracing digital transformation to find efficiencies and smarter ways of working by leveraging IT innovations can help an energy enterprise leapfrog ahead of competition in the new digital economy.
Companies are formed to exploit reserves, they perform due diligence, take into account risks and make a decision on whether or not to drill and produce. Investment can come from venture capital companies, private investment or equity rising. Petroleum products can be sold in several different markets such as options, futures contracts or directly through shares of a company

The most efficient mode of bulk transport for petroleum is the network of pipelines that are now found all over the world. Most crude-oil-producing areas are connected by pipeline either to refining centers or to a maritime loading port. In addition, many major crude-oil-receiving ports have extensive pipeline distribution networks to inland refineries. Centrifugal pumps usually provide the pumping power, with booster stations installed along the line as necessary. Most of the major product lines have been converted to fully automated operation, with the opening and closing of valves carried out by automatic sequence controls initiated from remote control centers.

Petroleum refining is one of the largest industries in the United States and a vital part of the national economy. However, potential environmental hazards associated with refineries have caused increased concern for communities in close proximity to them.
Refineries are generally considered a major source of pollutants in areas where they are located and are regulated by a number of environmental laws related to air, land and water. Some of the regulations that affect the refining industry include the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Safe Drinking Water Act, CERCLA (i.e. Superfund: Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act), Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know (EPCRA), OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration), TSCA (Toxic Substances Control Act), Oil Pollution Act and Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plans.
