Oil & Natural Gas Companies Help Add Knowledge
Oil and natural gas production is the backbone of the U.S. economy and transportation. Through exploration, production, transportation, and disbursement, the research not only benefits the company but also other industries and science as a whole. The research element of oil and natural gas production has brought to the table many studies about chemistry, geology, physics, and natural resource studies that has enlightened and added to the bask of knowledge. Though studied for the location and production of the natural resources, the same research can add to the existing bodies of knowledge.
The production of oil and natural gas and the ongoing need for these resources, has opened up new fields in a plethora of sciences. Biology has the benefit of species studies on impacted production environment. While the companies strive to keep a balance at the pumping site, they also research how to help the species live in cohabitation with man and the help restore the environment once the pumping operation is complete.
Oil and natural gas production companies also are at the forefront of clean energy solutions. They know that long term fossil fuel use may cause damage to the environment so they are proactive of making fossil fuel a cleaner source of energy. At the same time, the companies are working at clean energy production such as wind farms, solar energy, and geothermal energy. These companies have partnered with the U.S. government and independent renewable energy companies to find a solution that works for both the energy needs of the nation and the environmental needs of our planet.
Oil and natural gas production companies like Cunningham Energy will find a balance that will keep our earth green and at the same time offer energy solutions. As the companies research, the base of knowledge will grow. Universities, other industries, the military, and the government will benefit from that growth of that base as the knowledge gained through production will produce other research that is beneficial in other fields.
So next time the car needs to filled up with gas, remember that the research going into the tank of gas goes well beyond just oil and gas production.
