    Yes. All hydrocarbons are abiotic just as all water and all diamonds are abiotic.

    I don't beleive in magic. Magic is the belief of biogenic theorists.

    The UK and North Sea peaked. LOL.

    Water is a condition for life. Therefore abiotic water preceded life and cannot be biogenic. Likewise hydrocarbons.

    Oil migrates up not down. That's why we used to see blowouts.

    Really? Rapeseed oil is abiotic? Squalene is abiotic?
    Do you actually know what abiotic actually means?

    Which leads to what conclusion?

    I was right - you don't even know what biogenic means.

    Credit where it's due sonny - you have some stones - to suggest I take you seriously when you don't even know the definition of the words biotic and abiotic - let alone any of the science that underpins it - is pretty brave

    explain why igneous rock cannot overlie sedimentary rock and you have a point

    Yes. Do you know what a hydrocarbon is?

    It's possible. However the prediction of biogenic theory is that there is an oil window of sedimentary rock down to 15,000 feet TVD. Past that depth, they claim, hydrocarbon bonds break apart into methane. The Biogenic theory, was what Karl Popper would call, a good scientific theory: it made definite predictions, which could be tested by observation, and possibly falsified. Unfortunately for the theory, they were falsified.

    I know very well what a hydrocarbon is - there's a clue in the word - however I suspect there's some confusion on your part - suppose you tell me.

    Indeed - it says there is a window for FORMATION of oil

    This is going to be good. This is going to be better than good.

    Could you explain to us all what you understand to be the nature and cause of a blowout. Once you have done that - finding whichever meagre resources you can google - would you explain what possible relevance it has to oil migration.

    Wow. I'm really looking forward to this. I can hardly wait.

    Exactly. Yet another false prediction of the fossil fuel cult. The pressure at 15,000 TVD in the Earth's crust isn't sufficient to create complex hydrocarbons.

    I'm still waiting for you to tell me - how many fossils does it take to make a barrel of crude oil?

    How much cyanobacteria is neccessary to yield a barrel of oil?

    When you answer these two questions then I'll return the courtesy.

    You never asked me those two questions. I am involved in the technology to drill wells to find oil. My knowledge of oil formation is not encyclopedic - though it is clearly barrels ahead of yours. What makes you think those questions are relevant?

    By the way, I take your prevarication to mean that you don't understand the mechanism of blow outs. Let me help you . Try googling 'well kick'. That might contain something of more relevance for you. After you have studied what you find come back and tell us how this relates to oil migration.

    I've been asking those questions since I first posted here and I know for a fact you've read them. More recently I asked the question in post #64. See here: http://www.sciforums.com/showpost.php?p=1876895&postcount=64

    So answer them now that I've asked you directly.

    http://peakenergy.blogspot.com/2005...showComment=1148307660000#c114830771148725455

    If you have to ask that question it's obvious you can't answer them.

    Those questions are not germane to anything I have been discussing here. I have no intention, desire or time to carry out the library research necessary to provide you with an answer. If you can show that the answers would possess some relevance to our discusison I might change my stance, but I think it unlikely. It might be worth your while giving it a try - why do you think those figures are relevant? Do you really think you can demonstrate the total biomass required to produce the amount of observed oil it too great? Think again.

    In contrast, my questions to you directly address your competence to even be taking part in this discussion. I don't think you quite understand what a blow out is, or how it occurs, or how it has about the same relevance to oil migration as ... well nothing really, apart from pressure.

    Since I am a nice guy, I shall give you a partial answer to your question. How many fossils does it take to make a barrel of oil? None. Oil does not come from fossils. It comes from dead organisms.

    LOL @ U

    LMAO. So you finally concede fossil fuels are a myth. Congratulations I think there might be some hope for you after all.

    Here's another question you won't be able to answer: the crude oil that comes out of the ground is not made up of a single hydrocarbon, but rather is a mix of different hydrocarbons that have to be separated. Which organisms create which hydrocarbon chains?

    I was just about to put you on ignore, then thought I'd take one final look.

    Listen you cretinous, dumb-fuck, aborted remnants of a retarded, brain dead amoeba. As has previously been explained to you fossil fuels does not mean the fuels come from fossils. The fuel itself is the fossil. It is a remanant of once living organisms. The fuel is the fossil. Understand?

    Cretin.

    Goodbye.

    This is how people talk when they can't debate with data and facts. Good riddance.

    This argument does not seem to be going anywhere. Why do not we do a mass balance on biologycal products verses total oil (extracted oil so far plus the reserves) That will tell us how much bio material is needed to produce this oil. And do not forget the natural gas and methane hydride part too for the mass balance. Assume the plants and invertebrates started 360 million years ago.

    Considering that pre-cambrian single celled organisms had sufficient biomass to saturate oxygen sinks like rocks and oceans with oxygen, and then convert the earth's atmosphere from around 0.2% O2 to as high as 30% 02 at one point, I don't see a problem with the biomass issue.

    "The only real opponents to this story (of abiogenic origin) are in Western Europe and in the United States, and they are the professional petroleum geologists," he said.

    Wonder why?

    LOL. Paychecks can do wonders for peoples's opinions haha.

    And Deffeyes (Shell) and Campbell (BP) have done a great job convincing people. 76% of Americans and 85% of Brits think we are running out of oil.

    Of course Boone Pickens and Matt Simmons are laughing as they count their billions and fly around the world in their Gulfstreams burning hydrocarbons all day long.

    If anyone actually reads this link, they will discover that the "hydrocarbons" discussed in the quote are not oil, but gases like methane.

    The rest of the link is mostly general refutation of the early (1950s) Russian claims of abiotic origin for regular oil deposits, refutations and rebukes from scientists at universities - not commercially employed petroleum geologists.

    That's 0 for about ten, on accurate portrayal of links in the threads on this topic by this poster.

    I don't know if our poster here actually reads his links, but if he does, there are only two explanations for his pattern of quoting and discussion: he doesn't understand them, or he is deliberately misrepresenting their content for some reason.

    Are you aware that hydrocarbons refer to both methane and crude oil? Apparently not because you aren't aware of anything else either.
