This resource is presented in three parts:
• A six-page information booklet about oil and gas extraction, which includes questions to explore students' knowledge and understanding
• Teachers' notes including answers to the booklet questions

HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
