Oil and Natural Gas Formation Oil and natural gas result from the decay of tiny marine organisms that accumulated on the bottom of the ocean millions of years ago. After these remains were buried by sediments, they were heated until they became complex energy-rich carbon-based molecules. Over time, the molecules migrated into the porous rocks that now contain them. Much of the oil and natural gas in the United States is located in Alaska, Texas, California, and the Gulf of Mexico.
