Re: Difference between oil and gas fields?
Oil comes out from the ground. It was created over millions of years by pressure being exerted on organic substances. Today it is found in porous rock formations. Sometimes there will be a large open space underground that is filled with a ‘sea of oil.
Natural Gas comes from a variety of sources. Sometimes it is found underground, often associated with oil fields. It can also be found by itself in natural gas fields. It is also produced through natural processes in bogs, landfills, and sewage or manure dumps.
