Generating crude oil takes millions of years?

It is often claimed that crude oil forming is a process that takes millions of years. However, under the right circomstances, this can happen within an hour. See: Algae to crude oil: Million-year natural process takes minutes in the lab

What you need for that are:

  • Bio material (like algea)
  • Heat (350 degrees celsius)
  • Pressure (3000 psi, or 2 km deep water)
  • Water.

A global flood would provide enough water… and enough bio material, as it is ripped off everywhere… and enough heat. All flood models that are available show that there must have been a lot of heat involved during the flood.


Generating crude oil takes millions of years, or a global flood.

    While your material on the possible rapid formation of oil is correct, here is a source that is even more rapid. The lowest occurrence of oil in the Gulf of Mexico is immediately above the basement rock, along with the salt and anhydrous. This suggest oil was one of the things brought up and rapidly condensed when the mantel was unroofed by the impactor that formed the Gulf of Mexico. Many other oil plays show similar arrangement. It may be that coal was formed in the same way, except it was not directly deposited from the impact, but floated on the sea until swept up by floating biomass. The plant material in coal is not the source, but the sponge. The occurrence of algae with coal is not the source but a happenstance.
