Oil & Gas News

The Wiser daily oil & gas news email brings you the best articles from around the web on the petroleum industry. It is the best way to stay informed about developments. The oil & gas industry is a driver of global growth, while also being a concern. Those concerns center on everything from energy security to environmental concerns to concerns about the cost of living - the oil & gas industry has an effect on all of these things. It is an industry that is involved in the exploration, removal, production and distribution of oil to make fuel oil, gasoline and chemical products. The biggest producing companies are Saudi Aramco at 12.5 million barrels a day, Russia's Gazprom at 9.7 million barrels, and Iran's National Iranian Oil Co at 6.4 million. Changes in the industry are taking place as reserves in parts of the world become depleted, and governments seek to encourage the use of alternative forms of energy.
