Oil and gas energy are mostly similar. Both are non-renewable energies. Both have their advantages as well as their disadvantages.
Let us see the advantages of oil energy:
Oil is an extremely powerful energy source. Oil produces high energy output. A crude oil product is petrol. It is used widely in automobiles. This is because petrol has high energy output when compared to other energy sources. A study shows that petrol can move vehicles faster and longer than any other energy source of the same cost. And moreover, petrol has very good compressibility and ignition factor which makes it much more suitable for regular use.
· Oil is readily available.
· Oil produces less carbon-di-oxide than coal when burnt.
· Many people are employed in the oil industries.· Good availability.
It can be called as a clean fuel because it produces less carbon dioxide than other combustible fuel. In fact, it produces 45 % less carbon dioxide than coal.
Natural gas produces good outputs comparing with other energy sources. The fact that it produces less by-products makes it more efficient.
Stringent safety standards govern the exploration, production, transportation, distribution and use of natural gas. North America's continental natural pipeline system is the safest mode of energy transportation in the world today.
Natural gas running appliances need only little or no maintenance. This implies that we can save our money that is meant for servicing.
Slightly more than half of the homes in the United States use natural gas as their main heating fuel.
It is used to manufacture items such as paper, fertilizer, brick, photo film, even medicine.
Natural gas complements renewable technologies such as wind and power, providing the necessary low-emission backup generation.
Besides being a heating fuel, natural gas has other cool uses ... like chilling the glycol used to produce ice for hockey and skating rinks.
There are approximately four million Americans employed either directly or indirectly by the natural gas industry.
Natural gas energy is more reliable than the other sources of energy, day in and day out. Right now whether we have other energy or not, plentiful supplies of natural gas are available for immediate dispatch, via an existing interconnected, efficient and highly reliable delivery system.
Haber process can be used to produce ammonia using the help of the natural gas. Which can in turn be used for producing various fertilizers.
