Oil Oil History Oil impact globally Iraq has 25% of the world's oil reserves and
Saudi Arabia import's 20% of the US
oil. The countries and that import oil to the U.S.A are Saudi Arabia, Canada, Kuwait, Venezuela, Columbia, Brazil, and Ecuador.
They get the oil from the countries then send oil in tankers then they get to shore and put the oil in a pipe then they pump the oil that gets send to the refinery then in the refinery then the oil becomes gas
that is sent to trucks and that is how we get gas. Texas and Louisiana are the refinery for the US the farther you are from Texas and Louisiana
the more it well cost. Cost and Benefits Oil Consumption
+ Production Oil is a fossil fuel. 2000 2010 2005 2002 March (cc) image by jantik on Flickr 347 A.D.
The Chinese dug oil wells up to 800 ft using bits on bamboo poles. Oil Technology Over Time 1264- Medieval Persia started mining seep oil. 1848-The first modern oil well is drilled in Asia by a Russian Engineer. 1859-The first oil well in the U.S. was drilled. What did you do? This is the history of oil. Who are the stake holders? What is the cost of this form of energy? 1. Where does most U.S.A oil come from?

2. How many gallons of oil are in a barrel?

3. Where was America's first oil well? Quiz
If you answer correctly you will win a treat!!! -The risks of drilling offshore in NC would outweigh the benefits to the U.S.A economy
Per year North Carolina uses 98,717,000 barrels of oil.

Per year the United States uses 4 billion barrels of oil.

There are 42 gallons in a barrel. -Very small amounts of oil are offshore NC. It is estimated that there is only enough oil off the entire East Coast to power the U.S for three days. -Offshore oil would not benefit North Carolina. It would simply go into the global market. For
*people who use oil
*drive cars
*oil companies
*gas companies
*USA federal government against
*people who are against off shore drilling
*green companies The world has been using oil for almost 7,000 years. At first we used it as something to repair, build, and waterproof things. In fact Middle Eastern Marsh Dwellers first made bricks and mortar out of oil in the form of tar. In 1792 the Seneca Indians located in Pennsylvania used oil as a mosquito repellent, purge, and tonic. WHAT IS THE COST OF THIS FORM OF ENERGY? PRICE, ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEATH COSTS Oil use over time Another use of oil long ago is when ancient people coated their boats in oil to waterproof them. Cost 25% OF THE NATIONS ENERGY COMES FROM PETROLEUM
USA=$1.8 billion per year on oil



$120 billion in heath costs
-mostly air pollution
-20,000 people die prematurely from fossil fuel pollutants


-clean up cost 37 billion dollars
-BP had to clean it up
-ex. oil spill in gulf killed lots of wild life. Released 4.9 million barrels (62,000) a day 1929-Blowout Prevention Equipment is required on California oil wells. 1954- The first offshore oil mine was built. The next use of oil was when the Persians first used the thinner forms of oil in battle. This was the beginning of modern warfare because they used flaming arrows which soon turned to devastating bombs. Thanks for watching our Prezi. We would like to thank our teacher Andrea, and Zachary Kieth, the associate organizer of the NCSC for talking to us. interviewed. how has the cost changed oven time why? price of oil is set globally not by the USA. Our government gives 4.1 billion $ per year to oil subsides "to keep gas prices down". oil companies do not have to pay taxes or have tax breaks. oil companies make a lot of $ for example 2010 Exon Mobil 52.9 billion $ The next use of oil after the marsh dwellers
Per year North Carolina uses 98,717,000 barrels of oil.

Per year the United States uses 4 billion barrels of oil.

There are 42 gallons in a barrel.
