Oil Market or Oil Battleground ???

The erratic price trajectory in oil markets in recent decades can largely be explained by demand and supply curves. Although price movements are of course determined by changes in both supply and demand, the separate impact of these two factors can be disentangled . Also The world oil market has changed profoundly in the last few decades, but a few outdated conceptions persist. For example, a common misconception is that world oil is dominated by a handful of multinational corporations.  Wha

when did humans first learn to use Petroleum ??

Various theories have been advanced over the years as to the origin of petroleum proposing an animal, vegetable,mineral and even meteoric origin. Today, however,most scientists believe that oil and gas originated in plant and animal matter that accumulated in fine grained sediments at the bottom of ancient seas many millions of years ago . This theory suggests that oil originated as the remains of countless organisms that either lived in the sea or water deposited there with mud and silt fro

PETROLEUM for humanity 

Petroleum’s importance to humankind took a giant leap in the late 1800’s when it replaced coal as the primary fuel for the machines of the industrial revolution. In today's industrialized society , petroleum means power . It provides the mechanical power to run machines and industries and also the political power that comes from being able to shut down the machines and industries of those who depend on you for their oil supply.

will society always be dependent om oil ? Why have we not replaced oil with a non-polluting renewable energy source  ?

As long as we depend on oil to fuel the engines of the world , it will continue to play a major role in our lives, But research is ongoing in many countires to find ways to harness new sources of energy. Perhaps on day our cars will have electricity powered engines and run on batteries that must be recharged every few hubdred kilometers . Or, perhaps the batteries will draw on the sun's energy and recharge even as we drive. Who knows what the future holds ? One thing that is certain, however

What way the petrochemicals products is going ?

We live in a world dependent on petrochemicals. From the cars we drive to the food on our plates, the products and materials we derive from petrochemicals are fundamental to many aspects of modern society. Plastics and fertilisers, the two largest groups of chemical sector products, are indispensable in our everyday lives. Plastics is the fastest-growing group of bulk materials in the world, and synthetic nitrogen fertilisers underpin nearly half the world’s food production

An autopsy of the Pakistan’s economic crisis

Pakistan is the country of 208 million people. Its population is growing at the rate of nearly three percent annually. This means the country will need more and more funds and infrastructure to sustain quality life of its people in future. However, an autopsy of the state’s present economic outlook has revealed that the past and current economic policies have failed to achieve long-term objectives. Resultantly, the country is facing one of the worst economic crises in its history. Roots

Renewed Pak – Saudi relation: opportunities and challenges

At one point, when the Pakistani government refused to send troops to Yemen requested by Saudi Arabia, it seemed that relations between the two will remain disagreeable for a long time. However, it was not true. Pakistan and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s relations, these days, have reached new heights. Recent developments need a critical review and an analysis about the opportunities and challenges that will occur in the coming time. So to understand clearly the renewed relations between

Crimea, the story made public but never told to the Western non MSM audiences

The Crimean issue was one of a kind in contemporary geopolitics. Not only another colour revolution planned, funded and coordinated by Washington but the last real attempt to mined the existence of Russia as the country it has been from 2001. What I'm going to expose in here is the public story not told by the Western MSM and the globalist outlets controlled by the White House, the State Department, the Pentagon and the reckless CIA.

Reasons why an all-out war against Iran is unlikely

There has been much recent hype around the issue of Iran, but an all-out war remains unlikely. Militarily, Iran would be hard to dominate. This challenge exceeds any the US and the West have faced in many decades. Ever since the Iranian revolution in 1979, the Middle-Eastern country has been preparing for war. Iran is far more powerful than Iraq, Syria and even Saudi Arabia. The Iranian military capabilities were shown recently when Iranians shot down a $100k state-of-the-art RQ-4A Global Hawk s
