3 The Business of Oil and Gas A global giant The Business of Oil and Gas Oil and Gas is a global industry. As a worker in this industry you are part of a vast international network. As you travel with your work, you will meet people from many different countries and will need to be able to discuss issues affecting the oil and gas industry. This unit focuses on the vocabulary which will help you to converse in English about those issues. Section 1 Unit 1 Focused reading A Word pairs. Read this introduction to the oil and gas industry, which you might find in any online encyclopaedia. Notice the pairs of words (e.g. oil and gas or mergers and acquisitions ). Make a note of any others you can find. The oil and gas industry is one of the largest in the world. It is made up of a small number of conglomerates and a very large number of smaller independent companies. Generally speaking, the industry is divided into two areas. Upstream operations involve exploration and production, often known as E & P, while downstream operations involve transportation, refining, and sales of products to consumers. Relationships between companies can be very complex. They can be competitors with each other or they can be suppliers and customers of one another. Large companies make joint ventures with each other for specific projects and there are frequent mergers and acquisitions. Since the integration of oil and gas technology, this happens even more often. Oil and gas production takes place onshore and offshore. Oil and gas companies are engaged in a constant search to discover new reserves and to obtain extraction rights in proved reserves. Construction of drilling wells and rigs is an enormous risk and companies need to calculate supply and demand in order to be certain that an operation will be profitable before it comes on stream. 10

4 B Getting the facts straight. Read these extracts from internet websites relating to the oil and gas industry. Which of these statements are: 1 purely factual? 2 intended to show the importance of the oil and gas industry to the global economy? 3 intended to promote one particular oil company? a As the global economy evolves and expands, it presents enormous opportunities for the energy industry. We estimate that the world s oil and gas needs will grow forty percent by 2030 (Rex W. Tillerson, Chairman and CEO, ExxonMobil). b Proved reserves of oil are generally taken to be those quantities that geological and engineering information indicates with reasonable certainty can be recovered in the future from known reservoirs under existing economic and geological conditions ( Proved reserves at end 2006 Thousand million barrels Asia Pacific North America S. & Cent. America Africa Europe & Eurasia Middle East C c Without oil and natural gas, quality of life would decline and people in developing nations would not be able to improve their standard of living ( d Strong demand from oil and gas producers has pushed rates for offshore drilling rigs to record highs, prompting many companies to build new rigs to meet the strong demand ( e Shell E&P is engaged in the upstream activities of acquiring, exploring, developing and producing oil and gas ( Website accuracy. In many online encyclopaedias, readers can edit information themselves if they believe the information is false. If you read these statements would you wish to alter them? Use a search engine such as Google to research and check your answers. a The world produces and consumes 75 million barrels of oil a day. b The USA consumes 25 per cent of the world s supply of oil. c China is the second largest consumer. d 68 per cent of the world s oil reserves are in the Middle East. e The price of a barrel of oil quadrupled from US$3 to $12 in the 1973 oil crisis. f The Thunder Horse platform in the Gulf of Mexico was hit by two hurricanes in g The biggest oil field in the world is in Venezuela. h Oil and gas conglomerates employ 70 per cent of their resources on upstream operations. i Sakhalin 2 was the first integrated oil and gas project in Russia. Section 1 Unit 1 Oil and Gas 11

5 Vocabulary-building activities Section 1 Unit 1 Oil and Gas 12 1 Partnerships and prepositions. A word partnership is where two or more words are used together often enough to be considered as a fixed expression. Prepositions, or linking words, have an important role to play in word partnerships. Here are a number of word partnerships in sentences. Write either of the prepositions of or for in the space and highlight the part of each sentence you think is a word partnership. The first is done for you. Refresh! a Demand for oil will continue to increase until b The market liquefied natural gas is growing steadily. c Consumption fossil fuels has declined slightly in recent years. d The supply North Sea Oil can be maintained until around e Transportation oil presents many security risks. f Reserves natural gas are being found almost daily. g Drilling oil and gas is a major part of our upstream operations. h The extraction oil at the Burgan field began in i Exploration oil and gas has been going on for over 100 years. j Production gas from deepwater reserves is our main area of expertise. 2 Word families. A word family is where a number of words can be made from the same root word. Complete this table with words from these families, which are taken from the Focused Readings A to C, opposite. 3 Fill in the blanks. BP is an example of an oil and gas company operating globally. This is an extract from its website describing its operations in Europe. There are a number of words missing from the document. Fill in the blanks with the right word from each group of words given below.
