Every business today is dependent on oil and gas resources, directly or indirectly. There is a shortage in supply of these resources which has led to a raise in its prices. It is believed that by the year 2030, the Oil consumption in industries will be so high that it will exceed 115 million barrels per day, 30 million barrels higher than are consumed daily today.
The high demand for these resources and shrinking supply has made it a highly lucrative and secure option of Investment for the investors. The projected return over investment in the oil and gas industry is more than 650%. No other investment provides results as quickly as that of the Oil and Gas. The return from an oil and gas investment can be expected within few days of investment. For example: An oil well can start producing profits for the investors, within sixty days of it being hit.
One of the important components of Oil and Gas industry is the Petroleum. Besides its usage as a fuel, petroleum has found its usage in a number of economically viable byproducts when mixed with other non-hydrocarbons. So even when the world is moving towards renewable forms of energy, the versatility of Petroleum can make the Oil and Gas industry, a safe bet for investment.
