CRUDE oil is a dark viscous liquid found in the earth.It is a complex hydrocarbon substance,made of carbon and hydrogen mainly.It is formed from the remains of decayed plants and animals,which are called organic matters.The activities of heat,bacteria and pressure change it to crude oil.The crude oil slowly move through pores or holes in the porous rock layers,untill they meet a non porous rock layers where they become trapped.
