how do we find crude oil in thte ground
Crude oil is the term for "unprocessed" oil, the stuff that comes out of the ground. It is also known as petroleum. [ [ Crude oil is a fossil fuel, meaning that it was made naturally from decaying plants and animals living in ancient seas millions of years ago -- most places you can find crude oil were once sea beds. Crude oils vary in color, from clear to tar-black, and in viscosity, from
water to almost solid.
Crude oils are such a useful starting point for so many different substances because they contain hydrocarbons. Hydrocarbons are molecules that contain hydrogen and carbon and come in various lengths and structures, from straight chains to branching chains to rings. Thanks for using Weegy. ] ]
