Should the state of Georgia legalize casino gambling? Yes, I think they should.
Geoscientists found that natural geological structure could create oil and gas reservoirs, from which we could easily extract. Deeply buried rocks layers are deposits in an aquatic environment, where it still has water rather than air between rock grains. Hydrocarbon is lighter than water, therefore when oil and gas escape from the source rock and encounter porous and permeable rocks (also known as reservoir rocks), such as sandstones and limestones, buoyancy forces the oil and gas upwards through the pore spaces. When oil and gas reach another impermeable layer that blocks the upward migration, they will move laterally along the layer boundary towards a trap-like structure where they begin to accumulate. Traps are normally created by folds and faults, and antiform is the most common natural trap. This type of trap is called the conventional oil and gas reservoir. To produce hydrocarbon, a vertical well is drilled straight from the surface to this highly concentrated region. The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) defines conventional oil as “a category that includes crude oil – and natural gas and its condensates.” Figure 1. A cartoon demonstration of oil and gas reservoir geology and trap environment. The bright orange-coloured layer is the source rock, the yellow dotted layers are reservoir rocks (typically sandstones and limestones with high porosity and permeability level), and the peach-coloured layers are caprock with low porosity and permeability so that oil and gas cannot escape. The cartoon shows two different trapping environments: fault on the bottom left and antiform at the top.

(https://www.chathamhouse.org/publications/papers/view/185311) This rapid growth, predicted to by the US government’s Energy Information Administration, is going to continue that 46% of the US’ natural gas supply will be provided by shale gas. There is no doubt that the unconventional oil>GET ANSWER
