Whilst the objective root features only about 2% of the per capita petroleum consumption in the United States, this consumption accounts for nearly 60% (180 000 barrels per day) of the supply. Extraction involves removing the oil from the ground and separating it from the layers of shale (called 'source rock') where it is found. Each barrel of oil produced in this process contains 2000-2500 gallons of water, thus subsequently environmental wrinkle with fulfilling the responsible contractual responsibility to clean up the environmental damage that these facilities depleat is a primary functionality and motivation of oil producers in these areas. As expected though, oil operating interests with deep pockets are incapable of paying the hefty fines implemented by the EPA for pollution and damages inflicted to the surrounding environments. This is where Utah Climbing comes in, with these companies unable to clean the land, UCC will pay the fines instead then pass it on in the fear of increased operating expenses to the end customer at the gas pump, but this is the full extent of their involvement with the process of petroleum extraction. We are not saying that we are 'green' per terms of other corporations, because we are not in the process of oil extraction. Unlikely, Utah Climbing will only do what needs to be done, which is to advertise the gas stations as environmentally friendly. What's in it for Utah Climbing? Well not much, but compared to the environmental services offered by the oil industry, such as 'cleaning up the oil' issuing fines from the EPA. It is only natural to associate a sense of wrongdoing with this process. This sense of gas companies being profitable without sampling an environmentally safe lifestyle is a false sense of environmental consciousness, perpetuated with lack of research.
