Digging Deeper

petroleum (or crude oil):

  • an oily, flammable liquid, consisting of a variety of organic compounds, that is produced in sediments and sedimentary rocks during burial of organic matter; also called crude.

Natural gas

  • consists mainly of a single organic compound, methane. (The chemical formula of methane is CH4.)

source rocks:

  • sedimentary rocks (mudstone and shale), containing significant concentrations of organic matter, in which petroleum and natural gas are generated during burial of the deposits.


  • an impermeable layer or mass of sedimentary rock that forms the convex upward top or roof of a petroleum reservoir.


  • a large body of porous and permeable sedimentary rock that contains economically valuable petroleum and/or natural gas.

Table 1 (p.751) shows statistics for petroleum every 3-years from 1954 to 2008.

  • Construct a graph of United States (domestic) petroleum production, foreign petroleum imports, and petroleum consumption.

Analysis Questions – Helpful Hints

  • #1-3 use data (thousand barrels/day & years) in your answers
  • #5 USA production ÷ total consumption

(round to whole number)

  • #6 total consumption÷ population

(round to the thousandth position)

  • #7 (answer from 6) X (42 gallons)

(round to the hundredth position)

Conclusion Paragraph(s)

  • Use the analysis questions to summarize and explain the data represented on your graph.
    • Basically write a sentence or two based on each question
