Last week on EnergyTomorrow.org, we relaunched a portion of the site called the "Interactive Tech Tour," now simply known as the "Energy Tour." The Energy Tour allows visitors to learn more about different facets of the oil and natural gas industry by choosing from four different themes:

Access: As global demand for energy rises, the United States possesses untapped oil and natural gas that can developed to power the economy well into the future.
Technology: After decades-long investments of hundreds of billions of dollars, advanced technology is enabling America's oil and natural gas companies to access more resources from remote places with significantly less impact on the environment.
Energy From All Sources: We live in a growing world that will continue to require oil, natural gas and renewable energy. Oil and natural gas companies invest in technologies to explore and produce oil and natural gas as well as develop renewable resources.
Efficiency: Energy efficiency is the cleanest, quickest and most cost-effective way to extend today's energy supply into the future. Companies have practiced energy efficiency for decades and continue to develop technologies to reduce emissions.

Within the themes, visitors can also explore relevant videos, blog posts, games and other interactives to learn more about a specific topic.

So visit the Energy Tour to learn more about the oil and natural gas industry. Then feel free to comment on this post and tell us something new you learned after taking the tour.
