How are oil and gas found?
Are canadians resource wasters?
In my opinion, I do not think that canadians waste more energy than we produce which is a good thing compared to the other major countries. As the graph shows, Canadians consume average energy vs the other countries. The good thing is, we produce more than we consume, so that we may balance it out with other countries by sharing the resources.
How electricity is made:
Oil and gas are found by:
The first way is the geologists search for special geological structures that have traces of oil and gas
The second way is when the geologists look for clues like fossils and rocks that show the right conditions for the formation of oil and gas.
CANADIAN POWER GENERATION
-plants are cheap to run
-plants are expensive to make
-suitable sites are rare
-sites may not be near cities
-needs dams, can cause flooding
THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO OUR PRESENTATION.
-can be built anywhere
-fuel costs are high
-contributes to global warming
-very un eco-friendly
-can be built anywhere
-cheap to run
-we have a lot of
-doesn't make CO2
-expensive to make
-waste dangerous for
-plants have low life span
-an accident can kill thousands
the difference in each type of plant is what force they use to spin the turbine
ENERGY PRODUCTION IN CANADA
Environmental Issues With Nuclear Energy
-Waste products from nuclear plants last
for 100 000 years
-No permanent way of disposing of waste
-Exposure to nuclear waste can cause cancer
Canada is ranked 7th in production of electricity
with almost 619 billion kilowatts per hour.
First in the rankings is China with almost 5.4 trillion kilowatts per hour and second place is the United States Of America with just over 4 trillion kilowatts per hour.
Dangers of nuclear energy
Three mile island was a plant in pensilvania
that nearly melted down
Canada's Electrical Consumption
59% Hydro 28% Thermal 13% Nuclear
In terms of consumption, Canada is eighth with almost 463 billion kilowatts an hour. In first place is China with over 5 trillion kilowatts an hour and in second is the United States Of America with almost 4 trillion kilowatts. To put it into perspective, my family of 5 uses an average of one kilowatt per hour.
How is oil extracted?
There are 2 types of oil wells
1st type is non flowing wells
2nd type is flowing wells
What are non flowing wells?
Non flowing wells are oil reserves which dont push oil out of the ground itself so you would need a pump to get the oil. The type of tool used is called "the nodding horse"
The 2nd type is flowing wells
What are flowing wells?
Flowing wells are oil reserves that when dug
out dont need to be pumped.
The tool used for this is a diamond covered drill and a set of tubes that circulate the oil and gas.
Some Fun Facts about oil!
Crude oil's (AKA petroleum) consistency ranges from water like to solid state.
Saudia Arabia is the largest oil producer in the world they produce 8.1 million barrels (1 barrel equals 120 litres) of oil per day.
The largest oil spill in the world is the deepwater horizon oil spill in 2010 spilled 4.2 million barrels of oil in to the gulf of mexico.
Oils Impact On Newfoundland
OffShore oil pumps will be sent to Newfoundland
by tankers(which hold 850 000 tons of oil) and their way of transportation changes
Also between 1991 and 1995, 2500 people got jobs from the development of the hiberina oil field and many were able to return to use their skills
