  • Description:

  • pl
The Faculty of Drilling and Petroleum Engineering was established in 1967, and in 1995, it was renamed the Faculty of Drilling, Oil and Gas. Its activity focuses on petroleum, gas engineering and scientific research, mainly of practical character. Being the only faculty of this kind in Poland, it offers education within fulltime, part-time, doctoral and postgraduate study programmes. The Faculty of Drilling, Oil and Gas consists of three departments: Drilling and Geoengineering, Oil Engineering, and Gas Engineering.

Gas is one of the four fundamental states of matter (the others being solid, liquid, and plasma). A pure gas may be made up of individual atoms (e.g. a noble gas like neon), elemental molecules made from one type of atom (e.g. oxygen), or compound molecules made from a variety of atoms (e.g. carbon dioxide). A gas mixture would contain a variety of pure gases much like the air. What distinguishes a gas from liquids and solids is the vast separation of the individual gas particles. This separation usually makes a colorless gas invisible to the human observer. The interaction of gas particles in the presence of electric and gravitational fields are considered negligible as indicated by the constant velocity vectors in the image.
An oil is any nonpolar chemical substance that is a viscous liquid at ambient temperatures and is both hydrophobic (immiscible with water, literally "water fearing") and lipophilic (miscible with other oils, literally "fat loving"). Oils have a high carbon and hydrogen content and are usually flammable and surface active.
Sweet oil, the fragrance of the gods, mixed oil, pressed oil, aromatic oil, cedar oil for offerings are mine.
Lahar, in Debate between sheep and grain (mid to late 3rd millennium BCE) [1]
Our oil supply is secure, not because our government threatens to use force against those who would make it insecure, but because the world’s oil suppliers want to make money.
David R. Henderson, as quoted in Handbook of Oil Politics, edit. Robert E. Looney, Routledge, Chap. 11 “Do Governments need to Go to War for Oil?” (2012) p. 144.
To ask the question "What is oil?" is almost like asking "What is love?"
