Why is there so much oil in the middle eastern countries?



  1. 0 Votes

    So many oil reservoirs have been found in Middle Eastern countries because remains of animals and plants happened to be buried there millions of years ago.  The environment of those countries in the years that these plants and animals lived was an oceanic environment, where the remains could be buried, were allowed to rapidly decay, and thus lead to a concoction we refer to as “oil” today.

    Animals have no significant role in the generation of oil and natural gas. The vast majority of organic material in hydrocarbon source rocks comes from plants, mostly algae and plankton.
