Oil is found under the crust of the earth and comes in varying types.Some countries are way ahead of other counties in oil deposits because of the continental shift.

Oil is formed under the crust of the earth due to immense heat and pressure. Some of the countries are a step ahead in petroleum and natural gas deposits. This is only because of their geographical location and its earth's complex mixtures. Some of the leading oil producing countries and region are Texas and California- United States of America, Russia, Saudi Arab, Iran and Iraq, Nigeria, Venezuela etc. All these countries and regions have the so called reserves of petroleum. These areas have the porous rock formation on the upper layer of the earth's crust. The current consumption of oil is estimated to be around 84 million barrels per day as opposed to the regular collection of oil which is about 1.2 trillion each day. Oil is estimated to be the main source of energy in the coming years but other alternative sources are rapidly being developed, like solar energy, coal, wind power etc.

It is presumed that oil in this context refers to petroleum. If the oil in question refers to petroleum, it is found in oil wells, which are found in oil fields. There are oil fields in many countries of the world, including Saudi Arabia, Russia, the United States of America, Iran, Mexico, China, Norway, Canada, Venezuela, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Nigeria, the United Kingdom and Iraq.

In order to extract petroleum, an oil well has to be located and then the petroleum can be recovered or extracted using any of the methods, which are used for the purpose of extraction of petroleum.

The primary methods of extraction of petroleum put underground pressure to bring the petroleum to the surface. These methods are used to recover about one-fifth of the petroleum, which is present in the oil well. The secondary methods of extraction of petroleum are used to draw about five to ten per cent of the petroleum, which is present in the oil well. The tertiary methods reduce the viscosity of the petroleum and bring more of it to the surface.

Hi,

Most "baby oils" are primarily made of mineral oil. To make mineral oil,
gasoline and kerosene are removed from crude petroleum by heating,
in a method call functional distillation. By using sulfuric acid, applying absorbents, and washing with solvents and a lkalis, hydrocarbons and other chemicals are then removed.

It is not a fossil fuel. It is made by calcium carbonate and Iron oxide and traveling though space at 66,000 miles an hour and rotating every 24 hours. Plus the wobble of the earth and the pressure from deep in the crust. We have been lied to about it being fossil fuel.
