  2. 2. Where Do We Get Oil From? The Earth's surface, millions of years ago was covered with more water than what it does today and living in this water were billions of tiny plants and animals. When plants and animals fell to the floor of the ocean and piled up after they died, sand from eroding rocks and mud covered them up. Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd.

  3. 3. These layers of sand and mud were heavy and this weight turned them into sedimentary rocks. Heat from the Earth and the weight of rocks caused the dead plants and animals to compress into oil. Once the oil formed, it slowly moved up through pores in the rocks. In some cases however, rocks without any pores left oil trapped underground. It is from these very traps that we drill out oil today. Where Do We Get Oil From?

  5. 5. GETTING TO THE OIL To get to the oil, an oil company must first drill down to it. A rig is set up to support the drill. Then, a well is drilled into the ground until the oil is reached. If the oilfield is in the sea, then offshore rigs are used. Where Do We Get Oil From? PROJECT Is the oil you use to burn for energy and the oil you put into food the same?
