TWO CENTURIES OF OIL AND GAS

₦2,500.00

 

Oil and gas is a major mineral resource and energy that drives the economy of the world since 1860. The ancient history of oil and gas and the localized uses of petroleum for different menial purposes dated as far back as the 14th century in China. However, by 1845, exploration of oil and gas as a mineral resource started at Oil Creek Valley in Titusville, near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and pioneered by Rock Oil Company. Thus, on August 27, 1859, Edwin L. Drake and his assistant, Williams A. Smith, discovered oozing oil in commercial quantity from their pioneering drilling effort. The dependence of most nations of the world on oil and gas propelled scientists to search for this mineral resource in the environment e.g. on land and under water bodies.
