File Name: petroleum formation and occurrence .zip
Millions of years ago, algae and plants lived in shallow seas. After dying and sinking to the seafloor, the organic material mixed with other sediments and was buried. Over millions of years under high pressure and high temperature, the remains of these organisms transformed into what we know today as fossil fuels. Today, petroleum is found in vast underground reservoirs where ancient seas were located. Petroleum reservoirs can be found beneath land or the ocean floor. Crude oil is usually black or dark brown, but can also be yellowish, reddish, tan, or even greenish.
AAPG Bulletin ;; 97 3 : — The basin has a complex history, having evolved from a rift basin to an arc basin and finally having become a retroarc foreland basin. The basin has oil and gas seeps. Many large structures associated with extensional and compressional tectonics, which could be traps for hydrocarbon accumulations, exist. Fifteen onshore and three offshore exploration wells were drilled in the central Black Sea Basin, but none of them had commercial quantities of hydrocarbons. Untested hydrocarbons may exist in this area.
Dumble, E. Edward Orton, in his Report on the Occurrence of Petroleum, NaturalGas and Asphalt Rock in Western Kentucky, thus clearly states his ideas of theuniversal dissemination and rare accumulations of the bitumens:. The valuable accumulations of thesesubstances are rare, it is true, but one can scarcely go amiss of petroleum, asphalt or gas, at least in small quantities, among the stratified rocks that retain their original structure. Geological Survey, , discussing these views of Orton with similar views ofT. Sterry Hunt and Szajnocha, says that they "lead to the conviction thatthe formation of bitumens is a general process and by no means exceptional.

It is commonly refined into various types of fuels. Components of petroleum are separated using a technique called fractional distillation , i. It consists of naturally occurring hydrocarbons of various molecular weights and may contain miscellaneous organic compounds. A fossil fuel , petroleum is formed when large quantities of dead organisms, mostly zooplankton and algae , are buried underneath sedimentary rock and subjected to both intense heat and pressure. Petroleum has mostly been recovered by oil drilling. Drilling is carried out after studies of structural geology, sedimentary basin analysis, and reservoir characterisation.
Although it is recognized that the original source of carbon and hydrogen was in the materials that made up primordial Earth , it is generally accepted that these two elements had to pass through an organic phase to be combined into the varied complex molecules recognized as hydrocarbons. The organic material that is the source of most hydrocarbons has probably been derived from single-celled planktonic free-floating plants, such as diatoms and blue-green algae , and single-celled planktonic animals, such as foraminifera , which live in aquatic environments of marine, brackish, or fresh water. Such simple organisms are known to have been abundant long before the Paleozoic Era , which began some million years ago. Rapid burial of the remains of the single-celled planktonic plants and animals within fine-grained sediments effectively preserved them. This provided the organic materials, the so-called protopetroleum, for later diagenesis a series of processes involving biological, chemical, and physical changes into true petroleum. The first, or immature, stage of hydrocarbon formation is dominated by biological activity and chemical rearrangement, which convert organic matter to kerogen.

Арест и депортация Танкадо, широко освещавшиеся средствами массовой информации, стали печальным и позорным событием. Вопреки желанию Стратмора специалисты по заделыванию прорех такого рода, опасаясь, что Танкадо попытается убедить людей в существовании ТРАНСТЕКСТА, начали распускать порочащие его слухи. Энсей Танкадо стал изгоем мирового компьютерного сообщества: никто не верил калеке, обвиняемому в шпионаже, особенно когда он пытался доказать свою правоту, рассказывая о какой-то фантастической дешифровальной машине АНБ.
