This theory has been around for a long time, but due to the enormous geo-political implications has been supressed.

Fossils From Animals And Plants Are Not Necessary For Crude Oil And Natural Gas, Swedish Researchers Find

What would happen if it were proven that "fossil fuels" weren't the result of decaying plant and animal matter, were actually created within the Earth due to simple chemistry and you could not be scared into believing that we were "running out" of oil and natural gas?

I was discussing this last night. Why haven't they been able to create it in a lab yet? Surely they could figure it out.

the best question i have heard on the subject is
why is oil more radio active the deeper it is?
if the radioactivity lowers the closer to the surface you get doesnt that mean the oil is coming from inside out not outside in

It does help to read the article.

Experiments have shown that under extreme conditions of heat and pressure it is possible to convert iron oxide, calcium carbonate and water into methane, with hydrocarbons containing up to 10 carbon atoms being produced by Russian scientists last century and confirmed in recent US experiments. The absence of large quantities of free gaseous oxygen in the magma prevents the hydrocarbons from burning and therefore forming the lower energy state molecule carbon dioxide. The conditions present in the Earth's mantle would easily be sufficient for these small hydrocarbon chains to polymerise into the longer chain molecules found in crude oil.

This should've been obvious to many, long ago.

2nd line

Dinosaurs and plants... lol... I'm not saying they do not contribute... but...let's just think about this...

How many T-rexs to make a barrel of oil?

And now... how many barrels of oil have been consumed.... Now figure out how long the earth was subsidizing dinosaurs... calculate the estimated reserves of crude oil/nat gas. + rate of consumption now / future

That's... a big bowl of dinosaur soup.

The deep water horizon tapped the top of an oil reserve 5 MILES DOWN
now what exactly lives five miles down?

if the abiotic oil was generally accepted
what would happen the the money and power of the oil companies?

Just like free energy, or 100 mile per gallon carbs, or exploding water powered car builders, things that never see the light of day, because the oil companie are jealous of their monopoly lock on the world....

what exactly lives five miles down?
thats just to the top of the of the reserve too...

It should be obvious to anyone that fossilised plant remains are not the sole source of oil and gas - this stuff is coming up everywhere on the planet - methane hydrate deposits under the oceans are twice as big as all the oil reserves combined. It all points to the interior of the earth being stuffed with lighter elements.

Triple geospheres: oxidic carapace: hydridic mantle: ultimetal core

This paper proposes a new theory of the Earth comprising three major geospheres--core, mantle and carapace. The junction between core and mantle is a density transition determined by geophysics. The junction of the mantle with the crustal member of the carapace is not only a density transition but also a zone of energy release, the seat of endogeny, in fact.

In this paper, hydrogen is interpreted to be present copiously in the mantle in the form of high-pressure hydrides that behave as reduced, deformable fluids in contrast to the crust, which is oxidic and rigid. Plumes of metal hydrides ascend through the mantle buoyed by lower density than their hosts. Reaching the depth/pressure range of hydride dissociation and oxidation in the upper mantle or lower crust, they dissociate or oxidize, releasing latent chemical energy. This is the zone where magmatism, earthquakes, volcanism, and replacement mineralization occur. Rock-forming minerals of densities less than mantle minerals are deposited; isostasy is triggered.

Thusly, hydride dissociation and oxidation above a steadily degassing inner geosphere originated the lithosphere and continue to maintain it. Concurrently, atmosphere and hydrosphere evolve from non-metal hydrides that effuse from the lithosphere. Hydrogen escapes into space, leaving elemental oxygen and nitrogen to dominate the atmosphere.

At core depths, below the fluid intermetals comprising the mantle, the liquid outer core and a solid inner core may be higher-pressure phases of mixed intermetals, or they may be a new substance, a super-compressed, ultimately dense material, the "ultimetal," we might say.

Petroleum may well simply be a bi-product of the creation of magma. Resevoir's that have been so-called "tapped out", are slowly filling back up again. Me thinks...
