Energy, Oil & Gas, and Utilities OVERVIEW

     However, many other energy sources are in wide global use, from biomass to hydroelectric, to wind and solar electricity generation.
     Nuclear power plants also provide much of the world's electricity, as does coal. Advanced oil and gas production technologies, including 3D seismic, ultra-deep ocean rigs, hydraulic fracturing and directional drilling, have fostered exceptional new levels of oil and gas discovery and production around the world.
     In fact, the application of new technologies has dramatically upset the former balance of power in the energy industry, making North American production much more important while lessening the influence of OPEC.
     In recent years, a flood of production released by these technologies led to reasonably low market prices for crude oil and natural gas, much to the financial detriment of the very companies that funded and enabled these technological breakthroughs. In addition, there is a greater focus than ever before on the potential impact of energy production and consumption on public health, air quality, water quality and other environmental impacts.
     A large number of nations have stated very ambitious goals to reduce consumption of fossil fuels.
     Worldwide, investment in the development and implementation of cleaner or renewable energy sources is a major priority for many governments and industries.
     This emphasis varies widely from nation to nation, ranging from cleaner ways to burn the world's immense stores of coal; to the construction of advanced-technology nuclear generating plants that are exponentially safer than older models;
