Use technical terms. Sucker rod pump SRP not nodding donkey. It sounds terribly unprofessional.

Everything was good but the condescending tone of that bitch boy made it distasteful. Its supposed to be educational not a video about your fucking opinions. And btw electric cars are taking control of the car market so suck it bitch.

“Smells like rotten eggs” well that’s not sweet crude then. H2S or sour crude is definitely good too, sweet crude is what we’re looking for.

I love the part they over look how much and how cheaper we can mass produce this than ever before .but we pay out the ass. there is no way with technologies we have today compared to 40 years ago this shit should cost so much per gallon. I call BS

What are the long term consequences with removing the oil..Do they even know or care...I guess they don't give a s**t..It's all about the money.

Did you know that crude oil is your great great great great grandpa decomposed under pressure for hundreds of years and them pumped out to the surface ? Next time you start the car, say "thank you great great great great grandpa" Every finding of oil means one thing. That this is: large burial site of of either animals o humans. Most likely humans because only them live by thousands on one place especially back in the day. The story about Noah's flood also supports that massive burial of people allover the world, localizing crude oil resources basically reflect the major cities locations or what ever places people gathered to save them selves during the flood, like a giant cave filled with thousands of people eventually becomes your daily dose of petrol LOL Weird ha ?

Then why is gas so high in the USA if Texas is the biggest production plant. And why does the government buy from a different country??

Having built scaffolding in Whiting, IN BP Refinery I've gotten to see at least from quite a bit of refining processes. I liked to ask questions when I could to at least know what's going on around me. It's an amazing process and very chemistry involved. Been inside pretty much all the vessels in the refinery, very cool stuff

Its amazing how much energy is required to produce gasoline. It just goes to show how inefficient this product is and how inefficient the internal combustion engine is. It just make more and more sense to have an electric car over and ICE car. EVs are charged by an existing power plant. There s no digging for a dirty product; no transporting of this product; no refining of this product and no transporting of the finished product. Just makes sense to switch to an electric car.

William Prokipchak (1 month ago)
Maybe someone else addressed this but at 9:50 he explains how in every 159 liter barrel of oil, they extract, when you total it all up, 168 liters of products. Ignoring some rounding off, it's hard to believe the process is (near) 100% efficient.
0011clem raptor (24 days ago)
yes , I was thinking the same thing.. how do you get 168 litres of product from 159 litres of original product???

Oil, 250 million years old & full of carbon 14 (C14). A chunk of C14 the size of earth would decay completely in just one million years. So, oil being 250 million years old is a lie. The Pennsylvanian oil files at one time were all used up & abandoned, yet over the last 60 years 'somehow' they largely replenished themselves. Oil = Only Intentional Lies. There's plenty of oil & it's all mostly controlled by the banking elite, except for Russia's vast reserves. Hence why American & British interests are trying to start a war with the Russians. Stopping the Russians from building a pipeline across Syria to the Mediterranean coast is the big issue. Like the Berlin to Bagdad railway was the hidden but primary cause of World War One. "Those that ignore the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them." That's yet another reason why the 'sheep' have been kept so dumbed-down. "Children; drink your fluoride laced water, have plenty of vaccinations & keep those mobile phone microwaves close to your head."

There is no mention of catalytic cracking which is a key refinery technique that allows the ratio of different fuels (gasoline and diesel for example) to be adjusted to match demand.

Contrary to common belief depending on the quality you can actually run even a normal petrol engine on crude oil, it will not run very well but it will start and run on some of the crude oil. A diesel engine will have even less trouble...

OIL IS NOT FROM PLANTS OR DINOSAURS AND IT IS FAR FROM SCARCE....ask yourself Why is CRUDE so sticky yet slippery? then ask yourself how do tectonic plates move all the time and only when they collide do you feel what's called earthquakes.

crude oil is a byproduct of earth that is pushed out from the middle through cracks. It forms bags of crude which under pressure come to the surface. As it comes towards the surface of the earth certain bacteria will live in it and survive on it, that is why they say it was organic material decomposed by bacteria. You can look it up, do not believe a random person on the internet. This whole story that it has limited supply and it is formed from dead animals and forest is a big lie so they can charge you more and more for it, than charge you even more for pollution. As long as the earth is spinning, oil will flow. Coal deposits are formed from dead forest, not crude oil that is sucked out from kilometers underground or from deep under the ocean.

It is possible to make crude oil in a few weeks, just needs water, rust, carbon, and some heat with pressure. This is according to German and Russian scientists.

You forgot to add, in other states, corn is grown, and turned into ethanol at the taxpayers expense, and then shipped down to the refinery, and placed in the gasoline. This adds a cost of about $.50 per gallon that the taxpayer pays for. Not including the great dicking The taxpayer gets when he puts the contaminated gas in his fuel tank of his very expensive car. Causing untold damage on rubber parts. Then infusing with water from the atmosphere, causing rust. This was done and continues to be done, and no one was shot for it. Because We Americans are too busy with our McDonald’s, alcohol and Internet porn.
