Petroleum industry in India

Petroleum Industry Research is a very important aspect related to Petroleum industry all over the world.
Petrochemicals are chemical products derived from petroleum. Some chemical compounds made from petroleum are also obtained from other fossil fuels such as coal or natural gas, or renewable sources such as corn or sugar cane.
The petrochemical industry in India has been one of the fastest growing industries in the country. Since the beginning, the Indian petrochemical industry has shown an enviable rate of growth. This industry also has immense importance in the growth of economy of the country and the growth and development of manufacturing industry as well. It provides the foundation for manufacturing industries like construction, packaging, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, textiles etc.
Its significance is increasing with the passage of time due to the following aspects:- • Petroleum is a non-renewable resource and is available under the earth's crust in limited quantity. So, research becomes essential in case of exploration of petroleum so that the supply side of it remains viable during the near future. • Petroleum Industry is generally accompanied by huge amount of pollution emission which required to be checked for social welfare.

Mumbai 400053, India R. S. Dhalla Microbiological Consultants Mumbai 400007, India Abstract Supply chain initiatives have become a critical part of firms operations. Success is increasingly being dictated by how well a company can control its supply base and mitigate supply bottlenecks and liabilities. This paper used inductive and qualitative approaches to explore the salient factors that simultaneously enhance the “greening the supply chain” as well as maximizing the customer reach while maintaining the efficiency of the supply chain system of petroleum companies. The key indicators identified were environmental policies, supplier policies, sustainability, market orientation and commitment to human capital and diversity. A survey was conducted with key informants across many divisions of the LPG segment to investigate how well these environmental and customer reach in the supply chain are in synchronized with the top management’s commitment towards environmental responsiveness and maximizing customer orientation. The responses to the survey were statistically analyzed and a relationship model was constructed with Market orientation as the dependent variable and independent variables as: environmental policies,......

American Petroleum

...American Petroleum Institute, the industry is divided into sectors to cover all the procedures involved in finding, producing, processing, transporting and marketing oil and gas. These sectors include: 1. Upstream: involved in exploration and production of oil and gas using advanced geology to high-tech offshore drilling platforms 2. Downstream: involved in refining and marketing. It also includes the transportation of products using tankers from local terminals to service stations and ownership and operations in retail outlets. 3. Pipeline: involved in the movement of oil from ocean platforms and wells on land to refineries and finally to terminals where they are released to retail outlets 4. Marine: comprises all aspects of petroleum and its products movement by water, including port operations, maritime fighting and oil spill response. 5. Service and supply: includes companies that provide supplies, services, design and engineering support for exploration, drilling, refining and other operations. As with all other industries, there exist features that are peculiar to the petroleum. Common amongst these as identified in the 2007 UNCTAD report are: t finite supply of the product as it is non-renewable t differences in cost between production sites as a result constraints in technology, environment, etc that may exist in one site and not in the other t the industry is capital intensive and as such the risk level is high t in terms of demand and supply, the......

Data covering the period 1980-2011 was collected from the Central Bank of Nigeria Statistical Bulletin, and transparency international Agency annual publications and analyzed using econometric approach. The stationary status of the time series data was examined using Augmented Dickey Fuller test. The regressand is Real Gross Domestic Product (RGDP), The regressors are Foreign direct investment (FDI), Oil revenue (OIL), Corruption index (CI), External debt (EXDEBT). The series attained stationary after differencing. The Johansen cointegration test was conducted to ascertain the long run equilibrium condition of the variables in the model. The variables were cointegrated because four cointegrating equations were found. The Parsimonous model was established to account for the short run dynamic adjustments required for stable long run equilibrium. It was discovered that the variables: oil revenue and corruption index impacts negatively on Real GDP, while FDI and EXDEBT have positive impact on the growth of the economy. This means that the resource curse theory is proven to be true in Nigeria. The study concludes that, if the petroleum industry bill is passed and......

Petroleum in Brazil

...PETROLEUM IN BRAZIL: Petrobras, Petro-Sal, Legislative Changes & the Role of Foreign Investment ANDREW D. FISHMAN George Washington University Washington, DC 20052 (860) 690 - 7553 AFishman11@Gmail.com Introduction On November 8, 2007, the state-owned Petróleo Brasileiro S/A (Petrobras) announced that it had discovered a “monstrous” reserve of light oil in the Tupi field of the Santos basin, off the coast of southern Brazil. A day later it removed 41 adjacent exploration blocks from a scheduled government concession auction to reanalyze how to best exploit the new resources.1 Since opening its petroleum industry in 2007, Brazil has attracted hordes of foreign corporations and created hundreds of thousands of jobs. In 2009 President Lula proposed sweeping changes to the industry in the form of four bills that would greatly increase the government’s involvement and relegate foreign oil companies to the role of “subservient partners.” In that same year, Petrobras successfully executed a public stock offering worth almost $79 billion (bn). Yet despite the largest public offering in history and tens of billions of barrels in proven and expected reserves, analysts at Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank, among others, have downgraded Petrobras’ investment rated to “neutral” and “hold,” respectively. Despite incredible potential, uncertainty over the potential increase in government control, over-ambitious targets, infrastructural bottlenecks, technological capabilities, and......

Petroleum

...Petroleum is formed by the remains of fossilized plants and animals that became buried in the ocean under silt and sand. It takes millions of years for its formation. We are depleting it at a rapid pace and that is why it is considered a non-renewable resource. There are over 4,000 oil fields around the world. One of the biggest oil fields is Ghawar, in Saudi Arabia. They produce about 4.5 million barrels of oil per day. There are three stages of oil extraction; Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary. During the primary extraction, reservoir drives are in place. These are the natural pressure methods that drive the oil out after drilling, i.e. natural gas and water. During the secondary extraction, mechanical methods are used, such as injecting air or gas into the well to increase pressure. During the final stage, heat and chemicals are used to help heat the oil and increase its flow. Some of the environmental effects of extracting oil are air pollution, greenhouse gasses, and oil spills. When crude oil is refined, toxins are released into the atmosphere. These toxins are dangerous to humans and our ecosystem. Burning oil produces greenhouse gasses that increase global warming. Large oil spills can be catastrophic to the environment, but most of the oil spilled in our ecosystem is from illegal dumping and leaking automobiles, airplanes, and boats. Oil is the largest source of energy in the United States, providing close to 40 percent of all of the nations......

Global Forces on Petroleum Industry

...Research topic: Global Forces of Petroleum Consumption In Oil and Gas Industry The most feasible research topic to be carried out is global forces of petroleum consumption in oil and gas industry. Petroleum stated as one of the most important natural resources in the world that consumed as most diverse in human living. But it feels like the amount of oil that being produce in the current time as comes to its peak. There is the reason of nowadays-innovative technologies being invented to be the substitution of petroleum usage, but petroleum still playing an important role of objects production such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetic and plastic as the foundation of chemical reaction, which means petroleum is still remain the important position that irreplaceable of natural resources for our human living. Therefore, oil and gas industry companies are facing the hard time as in not just only facing the competitors within the field and also handling the threats from substitutions as well. The most appropriate framework to figure out the macro environmental influences and able to visibly the threats and opportunities from the external issue is PESTEL analysis by containing six aspects, which are political, economical, social, technological, environmental and legal as in entire analysis. The most significant influence in political aspect is controlling hydrocarbon reserves by government. The government controls the oil reserves right to their national companies by excluding the other......

Effectiveness of Corporate Social Responsible Practices Handled in the Petroleum Industry in Bangladesh: a Case Study of Shell

...Effectiveness of Corporate Social Responsible practices handled in the petroleum industry in Bangladesh: A case study of Shell By Delwar 2014 Dissertation submitted to Anglia Ruskin University in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the Masters Programme Abstract The research issue is that multinational organisations in the petroleum industry such as Shell and British Petroleum are being pressurised by their stakeholders to take responsibility for their business activities. In view of stakeholder pressure, companies have developed and implemented CSR policies and practices. However, the effectiveness of these CSR policies and practices is questionable as the effects of companies activities have negatively impacted the lives of their stakeholders and continue to do so (Amao, 2013). There is extensive research being carried out on understanding the effectiveness of multinationals CSR practices as there exists a wide gap between what companies are saying and what they are actually doing. Practising CSR makes companies responsible for looking after the needs of their stakeholders, makes companies take steps to protect the environment, improve people's livelihoods, motivates employees and increases organisations' effectiveness and efficiency. Multinational state they are practising CSR. Yet their activities have caused much harm to stakeholders. Shell's activities in Nigeria have caused severe health risk to families’ drinking......
