Sometimes crude oils is secured by drilling a hole through the earth, but more dry hole are drilling than those producing oil. Pressure at the source or pumping forces crude oil to the surface. Crude oil wells flow at varying rates, from ten thousands of barrels per hour, Petroleum product are always measured in 42-gallons barrels. ` Petroleum product vary greatly in physical appearance: thin, thick, transparent or opaque, but

regardless, their chemical composition is made up of only two elements: carbon and hydrogen, which from compounds called hydrocarbons. Other chemical elements found in union with the hydrocarbons are few and are classified as impurities. Trace elements are also found but these are of such minutes quantities that they are disregarded. The combination of carbon and hydrogen forms many thousands of compounds which are possible because of the various positions and joining of these two atoms in the hydrocarbon molecule.
