Extreme Oil

The quest for oil continues unabated across the globe, and this latest documentary series produced by Thirteen/WNET New York examines the various ways in which various interests work to find new sources of this very important natural resource. The site is divided into three compelling sections, and visitors would do well to start with the area titled "The Journey". Here they will learn about the distance that oil must travel, as it moves from its place of origin all the way to its use as a fuel source, or any of its thousands of other uses. The four oil transport networks profiled here include the famed BTC Pipeline and the Trans-Alaskan Pipeline. The history section of the site offers a helpful (and visually rich) timeline of the evolution of the use of oil by humans that dates back all the way to the year 480 BC. Finally, the last section deals with the science of oil extraction and related technologies, and includes information on refining and production of this resource.
