The exploration history of the U.S. offshore oil and natural gas industry began in the Pacific Ocean more than 70 years ago ().As recently as , no company had ever risked drilling beyond the sight of land ().In , as enterprising businessmen pursued California’s prolific Summerland oilfield all the way to the beach, the lure of offshore.

In general, products appear only if they make a significant contribution to the economy, or are likely to do so in the future. Oil Forming Under Ocean Now.

Brockett, Chairman of the Board, Gulf Oil Corporation. The Committee has one working group. Coal, natural gas, and petroleum are all fossil fuels that formed under similar conditions.

Today, petroleum is found in vast underground reservoirs where ancient seas were located. Petroleum reservoirs can be found beneath land or the ocean floor. Their crude oil is extracted with giant drilling machines. National Petroleum Council. Committee on Petroleum Resources Under the Ocean Floor.

Petroleum substances have been discovered and used as fuels for many centuries, originally at the sites of natural seeps and leaks from fissures in the Earth's surface.

In the modern era, petroleum resources are sought and exploited from locations that are more difficult and hazardous, including offshore.

Berger. Petroleum from the Ocean Petroleum (literally, "rock oil") is a substance that has formed beneath the surface of the Earth over eons. The remains of ancient plants and animals have been buried and compressed beneath thousands of feet of sand, mud, and rock.

An estimated one-third of the Earth’s microbes are literally hidden, buried in sediments deep below the ocean floor. Now, scientists have shown that these “deep biosphere” microbes aren’t staying put but are bubbling up to the ocean floor along with fluids from buried petroleum reservoirs.
