How Oil Is Formed
Jones Oil.

Those of us who imagine that striking oil means drilling into a pool of liquid riches might be surprised to learn how wrong we are. Oil is not found in underground lakes, but dispersed through rocks like a sponge. The rocks must be broken to extract the oil, which looks like mud when it is taken from the ground. Nor is it the remains of dead dinosaurs! We take a look at how oil was formed, and separate fact from fiction.
