The world’s longest stretches for around 10,000 kilometers over China and Central Asia. We’re talking about pipelines, and in total, there are enough to wrap around the equator more than eight...

Oil ministers from the OPEC+ nations are meeting today to review compliance with their ongoing agreement to limit crude oil production and exports.
As menacing as it may be, sand is often required during hydraulic fracturing (fracking) operations.
