4. There are four requirements necessary to form an oil deposit: 1) there must be source rock , 2) there must be a heating event, 3) there must be a reservoir rock, and 3) there must be trapping mechanism. The source rock must contain abundant organic matter. The organic material liquefies during the heating event, converting to hydrocarbon in the process. The first hydrocarbons to form are called Kerogen, which consists of carbon (69–80%), hydrogen (7-11%), Nitrogen (1.25-2.5%), Sulfur (1-8%) and Oxygen (9-17%). Kerogen becomes crude oil when the oxygen and nitrogen are removed in some manner. The Petroleum System consists of a mature source rock, migration pathway, reservoir rock, trap and seal. Appropriate relative timing of formation of these elements and the processes of generation, migration and accumulation are necessary for hydrocarbons to accumulate and be preserved. The formation of hydrocarbon liquids from an organic rich source rock with kerogen and bitumen to accumulates as oil or gas. Generation depends on: the presence of organic matter rich enough to yield hydrocarbons, adequate temperature, and sufficient time to bring the source rock to maturity. Pressure and the presence of bacteria and catalysts also affect generation. Generation is a critical phase in the development of a petroleum system.
Petroleum Generation:- A source rock is one rich in organic matter which heated sufficiently, will generate oil or gas. Rocks of marine origin tend to be oil prone. During the oil generation process, and simultaneous with the increase of the hydrocarbon/noncarbonate carbon ratio, the composition of the shale normal paraffins and naphthenes boiling above 325°C gradually changes and eventually becomes very similar to that of the waxy oils of the basin. The conclusion that petroleum is formed from sediment organic matter essentially by thermal, nonbiological…...

Deposit Insurance

...Deposit insurance tends to increase the likelihood of banking crises, the more so where bank interest rates are deregulated and the organized environment is weak. Also, the adverse impact of deposit insurance on bank stability tends to be stronger the more extensive the coverage offered to depositors, where the system is funded, and where it is run by the government rather than the private sector. The oldest system of national bank deposit insurance is the U.S. system, which was established in 1934 to avoid the extensive bank runs that subsidized to the Great Depression. It was not until the Post-War period, nonetheless, that deposit insurance initiated to spread around the world. Despite its increased service among policy makers, the desirability of deposit insurance remains a matter of some debate amongst economists. Whether or not deposit insurance is the best strategy to prevent depositor runs, all authors acknowledge that it is a source of moral hazard: as their ability to appeal deposits no longer imitates the risk of their asset collection, banks are encouraged to finance high-risk, high-return projects. As a result, deposit insurance may lead to more bank failures and, if banks take on risks that are correlated, systemic banking crises may become more frequent. The U.S. Savings & Loan crisis of the 1980s has been widely attributed to the moral threat created by a combination of generous deposit insurance, financial liberalization, and regulatory failure. Thus,......

Oil Drilling

...Oil Drilling Jasmine A. Richardson Freshman Seminar Friday 10:20-11:20 Throughout the years the government has spent millions of dollars on oil drilling. But what is the actual purpose of oil drilling? Is it necessary? Are we spending too much money on this one project or is it useful in the end? These questions have been debated so much over and over again. But the question is am I for or against oil drilling? Oil drilling takes up too much time and money for one simple purpose. It takes time and a workload to even begin this process. In order to perform a normal oil drilling process you have to find a land that has to be cleared and leveled, water must be nearby, if there is no water the crews have to dig water well, and lastly the crews have to reserve a pit. All of this is very expensive and damaging to the land. In an article in Bloomberg Business week it was recorded that marathon oil spent 10 million on oil drilling and that was just for one time. If oil drilling is really purposeful for the country why make it so expensive? There aren’t any other resources to finding oil? And the main objective is if we’re spending so much money on oil drilling then why are we even fighting in the war anymore? The damages to the land are excruciating and the government always ends up paying for the damages so that’s double to money they’re spending. One expensive tool they use to capture the oil is the oil rig. They use it to drill into the ground so that they can confiscate...

...Islamic financial models are unique in that ethics are intertwined with their operations. Islamic governance takes into account the social implications of a business transaction and thereby serves the greater community interests. One of the main tenets upon which Islamic banking law rests is the prohibition on interest or “riba”. The concept is meant to outlaw all forms of wrongdoing and give the financier an interest in the venture. Not only does the doctrine of “riba” prevent the exploitation of someone in a weak bargaining position, but it also forbids “all forms of gain or profit which were unearned in the sense that they resulted from speculative or risky transactions and could not be precisely calculated in advance by the contracting parties.” The prohibition of interest is meant to design an economy and society based on risk-sharing, fair dealing, and equity. In Islamic law, the justification that interest is the cost of using money or that a loan is an investment is rejected in favor of ethics. Islamic economic theory criticizes the conventional financial industry for speculation, consumerism, volatility, “unnecessary products,” large corporations, and usury. These traditional capitalistic means of profit-making are not compatible with Islamic values. Islamic law therefore creates a culture where people only spend what they have, a theory in direct opposition to consumer driven models. Investment regulations are implemented to avoid “sinful” activity. Currency......

Oil Producers vs. Oil Usres

...BC607 Assignment 7.1 Oil Producers vs. Oil Users Oil is a unique and finite commodity. Every person in the world is affected by oil and it plays a vital role within modern society. It has also been associated with conflict since the First World War. The importance of oil is such that nationals and ethnic groups are prepared to go to war for this commodity if necessary. As such, a unique set of economic circumstances and policy issues surround oil. These include oil’s links to industrialization, economic growth, the distribution of wealth, and global warming. Oil is vital to the functioning of the economy of individual countries as well as the global economy. It plays an essential role in transport systems (ground, air and sea), agriculture, chemicals, and the military. Thousands of products are made using oil including plastics, pesticides, paints, inks, synthetic fibers, solvents, medicines, and other vital everyday use products. The reality is that oil is all around us, even when it is not being used in vehicle or other transport engines. Since oil is a finite commodity, concerns about when the supply of oil will decline and run out is of paramount importance and concern. The world’s supply of readily accessible oil is declining simply because more oil is being extracted than being discovered. New technologies that gain access to reservoirs previously hard to access may extend the life of these reserves. However, demand for oil in developed countries......

Oil Industy

...2014 Subject: A brief journey through BP in the oil industry Most of us use or rely on crude oil products every day of our lives, whether directly with gasoline to fill up our cars or indirectly through products we use each day at home and work. Yet few people really know or think about the amazing process which transforms crude oil into useful products and ultimately provide us the freedoms in lifestyles to which we have become accustomed. The journey of crude oil into refined products is long, arduous and at times contentious, from initial exploration, to transportation and refining. Multinational energy companies, such as BP face a multitude of international and national regulations, political, cultural and environmental challenges, in the highly complex business world in which they exist. The following memorandum provides details of BP’s various operations in the different aspects of the industry, spanning countries across the world, highlighting some of these challenges, the impacts of the operations and the truly global nature of the oil industry. (See appendix 1 for BP operations activity map). Canada - Oil sands In the US, BP sources much of their crude oil from the Canadian oil sands in the province of Alberta for supply into the Midwest market. Oil sands in Canada are the third-largest proven crude oil reserves in the world, after Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. One of the big questions facing BP and the oil industry in working to meet rising global energy......

Deposit insurance schemes are present in most of the countries and are well-established in all developed economies.1 Deposit insurance takes the form of a guarantee to depositors that they will be compensated after the most unlikely event of bank failure. Bank run is not a single model it evolves many other complications whether it is for its depositors, government or for the whole economy. To reduce the all over effect of financial problem, schemes like deposit insurance were in discussion by the regulatory authorities. Although deposit insurance present both positive and negative aspects for the economy. Introduction Banks are the most important financial institutions in every country as they act as an intermediary between lenders and borrower. General public use banks as safest place to keep their savings which can be used in the needed situation and also to earn some interest on their deposits. Banking institutions invest that money in other projects to gain profit, but some time when financial instruments fails in the economy then banks and depositors are backed by the schemes like deposit insurance. In the past decades, a series of......

Deposit Banking

...Index Deposit Banking - Introduction 3 Origins 4 Demand deposits 6 Time deposits 7 Fractional-reserve Banking 8 Full-reserve Banking 10 Bibliography 13 Deposit Banking - Introduction Having money is not always as easy as it seems. Why keeping it at home when there are much safer institutions out there? But, bringing the money to a bank requires knowledge of how to deposit it and of what the bank is actually doing with it. Deciding between the possibility of withdrawing everything or even generating money by investing it for a longer period of time should be a crucial question for every investor. Moreover, the process of depositing it raises disputed questions on who is proprietor and on the possessor’s privilege to handle it. Bank deposits developed and changed throughout history. Farmers, looking for a place to protect their grains from theft, stored their harvest in warehouses in exchange for a receipt and the possibility to get it all back after redeeming it. Later on, owners of gold and silver used the same idea to store their more fungible goods at banks. At the beginning, those deposit banks obtained gain by demanding a fee for the time the good was deposed there. The depositor’s assets remained untouched. It is not difficult to imagine that those institutions succumbed to the temptation of taking them and loaning them away in order to expand their sources of income. This kind of activity is called embezzlement. It means to use......

...Bank Deposit Account Lesson 16 Bank Deposit Account You have already learnt that the main banking activities consist of acceptance of deposit from the public for the purpose of lending to businessmen and others who may seek loans. Actually the money deposited in any bank is mostly the saving of the people. As you know, if someone earns money and has regular income, he or she not only spends it for day-to-day expenses but also tries to save a part of the income for future needs. Money may be needed in future for various purposes like medical treatment in case of illness in the family, expenses on account of marriage, or for higher studies of the children, or to celebrate religious festivals, etc. The money saved to meet future needs may be kept at home. But will it be safe at home? It may be stolen. Moreover, the money saved will remain idle at home without any return. So people keep their savings with someone where it will be safe and earn a return. Bank is such a place where money once deposited remains safe and also earns interest. In this lesson, we shall learn about the types of deposit accounts that can be opened in a bank, and also discuss how a savings bank account can be opened and operated. 16.1 Objectives After studying this lesson, you will be able to: classify bank deposit accounts; discuss the steps to be taken for opening a Savings Bank Account; and describe the procedure of operating a Savings Bank Account. 15 Business Studies 16.2 Types......
