Marine seismic surveys: what you need to know
A marine seismic survey is a method of determining geological features below the sea floor, using a technical process which involves sending sound waves into the rock layers beneath the sea floor and then recording the time is takes for each wave to bounce back as well as measuring the strength of each returning wave. It is the most reliable form of initial exploration for oil and gas and is an essential process in identifying geological features that could contain oil or gas deposits.
Cleaner ozone: the benefits of increased natural gas use
As a cleaner burning source of fuel, natural gas is increasingly being relied upon around the world to meet energy needs. Countries like the United States and China for example, are replacing older electricity generation facilities with natural gas generation and seeing significant improvements in regional emission levels.
