How much longer can oil coal and natural gas last?

i think it will last for 10-12 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I think it will last a bit longer than that! . Even so, our oil won't last for ever. At the moment, the world uses about 26,000,000,000 barrels every year. At this rate, there should be enough oil for at least another 40 years. . the oil suppl (MORE)

Is oil an inexhaustible resource?

It's finite, but we don't know HOW finite. This is the thing: We are not currently running out of oil. We have plenty. What we are running out of is cheap oil--the kind you can extract for less than it's worth.

Where was oil and natural gas first found?

Well, I'm not sure about the natural gas part of the question BUT I can tell you where OIL was first successfully drilled in the USA. My hometown of Titusville Pennsylvania. That's right, back on August 27th 1859 Col. Edwin L. Drake and "Uncle" Billy Smith drilled the first commercially successful o (MORE)

Is natural gas inexhaustible?

The world supply of natural gas is not inexhaustible. It is notrenewable and will eventually run out. Some estimates state that itwill last less than 100 years at present usage.

What does oil natural gas come from?

Oil and natural gas are found in source rocks contained in the earths crust. Source rocks are rich in organic matter which was rapidly buried in quiet, non-areated environments. The organic component through which hydrocarbons are formed is called Kerogen of which there are three types. Type 1- Sapr (MORE)

What is the difference between crude oil and natural-gas?

All are fossil fuels which means that they were formed from plants and animals from millions of years ago. Coal is a solid. It is mostly carbon. It is made from mostly plant materials. Oil is a liquid. It is a mixture of hydrocarbons. It is more animal materials. Its composition is different d (MORE)

Inexhaustible natural resources?

· Wind, solar and hydroelectric power provide energy from sunlight, air movement and evaporation (in the form of water that rises from the ocean, falls on the land, enters rivers and subsequently passes through the turbines in dams). These processes will continue as long as there is weather on p (MORE)

How does oil and natural gas form?

Oil and natural gas forms from the buried remains of living things. The remains take millions of years to change into oil and natural gas.

How is oil and natural gas formed?

Oil and natural gas, also called fossil fuels, are formed by anaerobic decomposition of dead and buried organisms. Anaerobic decomposition is the decomposition of something while lacking oxygen, which is caused by it being buried in mud and sediment, which over time (millions of years) will cause (MORE)

Explain why coal oil and natural gas are fossil fuels?

They have been formed over millions of years as dead animals and plants have been crushed and compressed by the weight of the ever-increasing material on top of them. Their age, along with the fact that they are unrenewable sources i.e. they will never be re-made, leads to the fact that they are fos (MORE)

What is inexhaustible natural resources?

Resources that are unlimited in nature and are not likely to be exhausted by human activities fall under this category. Solar radiation, air, water, precipitation (rainfall, snow fall, etc.,) and atomic power are some instances of such resources. Some of them may undergo temporary imbalances due to (MORE)

Is natural gas or natural oil conventional or non conventional?

Generally, the fuel gas we use comes from underground reservoirs, or natural gas, and this is a conventional source. However, a very small part of natural gas sources is the methane found in coal seams. It is being produced and marketed as natural gas and often classified as an unconventional source (MORE)

Can oil and natural gas be classified as minerals?

obviously the previous answer is incorrect, the true answer isthat natural gas and oil is NOT minerals because they both lack acrystal structure and a solid form. . +++ . That's not correct either: I am not sure about natural gas, butoil is regarded as a mineral. Although many minerals are indeedc (MORE)

How are oil and natural gas formed?

Both oil and natural gas are the compressed remains of marineorganisms. Both are made due to pressure and heat under buriedlayers of rock over millions of years.

Why is oil and natural gas bad for the environment?

natural gas is bad for the environment because as soon as it gets in your tap water, it releases toxics into the water that turn it brown and make it flammable. if you drink the polluted water, you could get very bad headaches, loss of smell and sometimes taste (i know it sounds hard to believe) and (MORE)

How were oil and natural gas created?

Oil and gas are created by heating and compression of thick layers of dead microscopic sea creatures (plankton), taking place deep underground and over millions of years. Where undecayed organic material accumulates at shallow depths, it forms peat, which is the precursor to coal.

Is oil and natural gas renewable or nonrenewable?

All useful energy systems, save nuclear, are non renewable. What some consider renewable (Solar and Wind) are not able to provide any useful levels of power and cost more energy then they create.

Is natural gas renewable nonrenewable or inexhaustible?

Natural gas is non-renewable. It can only be used once. Our commercial sources of gas are almost entirely nonrenewable. See related link. Renewable sources of gas would be biogas from landfills, however this source is a very small part of natural gas usage. .

Can oxygen gas be an inexhaustible resource?

Oxygen is an element. It can become part of something else, like carbon dioxide, and it can separate out again. It can't be destroyed, so, it probably is an inexhaustible resource.

What is the definition of inexhaustable natural resources?

Inexhaustible natural resources are natural resources that neverrun out, such as solar energy and geothermal energy. A natural resource is something, such as a forest, mineral deposit,or fresh water, that is found in nature and is necessary or usefulto humans.
