A worker manoeuvres an exploration drill bit at an oil and gas drilling rig in the Patagonian province of Neuquen October 14, 2011. Argentine energy firm YPF, the local unit of Spain's Repsol, said on November 7, 2011 it had confirmed unconventional oil resources of 927 million barrels of oil equivalent in Patagonia. The resources lie in a 428 kilometre square area in the southern province of Neuquen, where the company announced a large unconventional natural gas find nearly a year ago.
YPF, Argentina's biggest energy company, said in a statement it was already producing about 5,000 boe per day in the area after initial drilling. Picture taken October 14, 2011. REUTERS/Enrique Marcarian (ARGENTINA - Tags: BUSINESS ENERGY ENVIRONMENT)

A worker checks pipes and valves at Amaal oil field in eastern Libya October 7, 2011. Eight months of civil war have left Libya's oil industry in chaos, with
fields that once pumped a total of around 1.6 million barrels per day (bpd) deserted and export
terminals, pumping stations and pipelines damaged by fighting and sabotage. Engineers and other workers who left the field, which is about 1000 km (620 miles) southeast of the capital Tripoli, are returning in what the country's new rulers hope will be the resumption of full oil production as soon as possible.

Without any coaxing, the sticky black treasure oozes from the layered rock and gathers in pools that bubble as dissolved gases surface. Gradually, as the crude slips down the hillsides, it solidifies into a grey mass that resembles a hardened lava flow. It's a good metaphor for the progress of oil from the semi-autonomous Iraqi region of Kurdistan over the past five years: big on promise, small on delivery. Picture taken November 24, 2010.

A worker checks oil at the Cidade Angra dos Reis offshore platform at the Lula oil field, about 300 km (186.4 miles) from the coast of Rio de Janeiro, February 16, 2011. Brazilian state oil company Petrobras will begin sequestering carbon dioxide in the offshore Lula oil field in the coming months to boost production and lower the environmental impact of its deep water crude exploration campaign. Brazil's offshore oil fields in the vast region known as the subsalt, which the country hopes will turn it into a major oil exporter, contain large quantities of CO2 that Petrobras does not want to release into the air because of the associated greenhouse effects.

A PT Pertamina worker sits under pipes as he rests near crude oil tanks at Bunyu island, Indonesia's East Kalimantan province February 8, 2011. Pertamina has said it expects crude and condensate production of 132,000 barrels per day for this year, up just 1 percent from last year, though the former OPEC member country has often missed production targets because of declining output at ageing fields, Pertamina's director of investment and risk management Ferederick Siahaan said last month.

A heron is seen in a rice plantation as a farmer casts urea fertilizer on the expropriated and now redistributed farm of El Charcote in the central state of Cojedes October 14, 2010. El Charcote became a symbol of Chavez's socialist revolution when he sent soldiers to seize it in a 2005 push to break up major ranches and repopulate rural areas largely abandoned since Venezuela's oil industry took off in the 1920s. The government recently bought the last 500,000 acres (200,000 hectares) of land on the farm, a vast cattle ranch that until 2005 belonged to one of Britain's wealthiest families, the Vesteys, and 130,000 cattle, part of a new drive by Chavez to increase state control of food in South America's top oil producer.

Facing one of the world's most challenging resuce operations, engineers are already using two drills to reach the miners stuck in a tunnel 2,300 feet (700 meters) below ground, and are erecting a third normally used to drill for oil.
