Oil Rig in Nigeria

We know the oligarchy that is responsible for this oilgate. They are both in the public sector and private sector. Many of them are in the Nigerian Armed Forces and the ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP) of President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua and many of them are on the Boards of Directors of the leading banks in Nigeria. I am ready to expose them, but Let him be ready to sack them and arrest them for public trial. Enough is enough!

Under a $2.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, Bioengineering Resources, Inc. (BRI) is investigating the feasibility of locating BRI facilities that produce ethanol by processing corn stover next to conventional grain alcohol plants. The study is assessing the synergies involved with such co-location, such as the utilization of waste heat and power from a BRI plant to reduce the operating costs of the neighboring sugar fermentation plant.

Solvents cover a huge number of substances: gas lighter refills, aerosols containing hairspray, deodorants and air fresheners, tins or tubes of glue, some paints, thinners and correcting fluids, cleaning fluids, surgical spirit, dry-cleaning fluids and petroleum products. When inhaled, solvents have a similar effect to alcohol. They make people feel uninhibited, euphoric and dizzy.

Every time an election is held for any office, the subject of ANWR Drilling, America’s dependence on petroleum and the politics of oil and gas eventually comes up in discussion.

Colt developed the design basis memorandum (FEL 2) and basic engineering package (FEL 3). The scope of the project included a new S-Zorb unit, SO2 recovery process (CANSOLV) modifications to two FCCU gas plants, distillate desulphurizing unit, sulphur plant and various utilities. For the first FCCU, Colt developed the design for 30 PPM. For the second FCCU, Colt developed a HYSYS simulation for the fractionator and gas plant. This included reconciling the simulation against test-run data and benchmarking to establish a base case.This project was an extensive revamp involving the replacement of much of the existing equipment. The project impacted the plant’s FCCU, the gas plant, crude unit and distillate desulphurization unit. An innovative approach was used to minimize turnaround hours and their effect on operations

The word Petroleum is derived from two words Petra meaning rock and oleum meaning oil. The oil occurs naturally in porous rocky strata in liquid form is the crude oil. If it is in semi hard state mixed in sand then it is bitumen. The crude oil can be black, brown, green or even orangish yellow. It does contain oxygen, sulphur, nitrogen and other items in minute quantities which determines it suitability for specific application.The crude oil or its derivatives are marketed by volume or weight, gallon, litre, barrel, are the volumetric measurements while metric tonnes (mt or MT) are for the weight.
