• Below is a satellite composite view of our world at night, illuminated by man-made light.
  • Many Oil and Gas (O&G) insinuations can be drawn from this fascinating spectacle:
  1. We can distinguish immediately where energy demand is highest. The greater the intensity and spread of light, the greater the energy demand.
  2. Studies show that 56% of global energy is derived from hydrocarbon sources. In our map, these well-lit areas are essentially O&G demand centers. These are the end markets for hydrocarbons, which are often obtained from darker areas on this map.
  3. Demand location has many consequences for energy policy, transportation, and field development.
