Abiotic Oil - The Secret of the BP Oil Spill.

As usual, here is the place where you get the unfettered truth about what's going on in the world and today I will pull back the curtains on the BP oil leak and what will go down as one of the most important discoveries of the 21st century - that oil is abiotic - produced inside the Earth and is not simply rotting dinosaurs and old plants (aka "fossil" fuel).

The amount of oil seeping into the Gulf of Mexico, at this very moment, emerges from an *ocean* of oil that is almost as large as the Gulf itself! This ocean of oil didn't appear there because it was a giant fish graveyard. It was not a prehistoric jungle 20 miles high and 500 miles wide. This oil is abiotic oil and is produced by geological actions in the earth itself.

Abiotic oil is created by intense pressures on carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and sulphur. The sort of pressures required to create oil are natural as one gets down a certain depth under the heavy crust and in the upper layers of the mantle. In some ways oil is the natural lubrication system for the crust and the upper layers of the mantle as it shifts and orbits the planet's core.

The best think-tanks have known this for several decades now and have kept it hush hush to keep prices of oil high and help the oil industry. This was necessary because oil companies have huge assets and those assets are put to good use in infrastructure, research and development in more than simple oil production. Capitalism requires that certain commodities be given a value above and beyond the cost of procurement. Now that we have a leak which will not be able to be plugged, it's time to prepare and explain what exactly is going on with the Deep Horizon well and why it is almost impossible to cap that Genie back in the bottle.

The underground oil oceans are under far more pressure than their ground well brethren and contain much more oil. At the depth of the Deep Horizon well, one mile under the sea the per inch pressure is 2640 pounds per square inch. The ocean floor in these locations is very dense and can contain the underground oil oceans. Even so, in the Gulf, an Exxon Valdez size amount of oil naturally seeps into the Gulf every year. This under crust oil is seeping into all the oceans, but the Gulf, due to its size and geographic position, makes the seepage measurable.

So BP can be excused a great deal of ignorance in dealing with this new type of well. The typical cures are not working and they will not work. Think how much pressure this underground oil must exist with to support the thin crust between it and the ocean! The odds are the Gulf's underground oil ocean exists between 15,000 and 30,000 psi at all points. Most oil equipment is not made to handle the upper end of this pressure spectrum. So caps blow off, plugs fail and almost nothing can stem the flow of oil now merging an ocean of oil and the Gulf of Mexico.

The two relief wells now being drilled are probably not a good idea, because unlike a ground well this may not "divide" the pressure and create 3 wells with manageable 5,000 psi flows. In fact, depending on the size of this ocean of oil, twenty or thirty relief wells might still only bring the psi down to 10,000! So the relief wells may just create 3 leaks where there was one before. If this is the case, BP seriously needs to fire their current geologists and hire some of the Russian abiotic oil scientists to assist them in corralling the flow from this oil ocean. Watch the news, and hope that BP actually understands what it is dealing with because the relief well option illustrates some of the senior geologists at BP do/did not think the oil is abiotic. If, in August, when the relief wells are finished and we have 3 leaks in lieu of one you will understand why. After reading this you will know more than the BP geologists.

So rejoice. Do not crucify BP for their ignorance in this matter. Thank them. They have, accidentally, proven oil is abiotic and that "Peak oil" is a myth. Do not expect prices to reduce that much though, because this abiotic oil is generating huge new expenses to control and recover. The very good side of this equation is that it wont run out - until the planet itself does. The energy crisis - which was always a myth - is over. Don't let the government get away with issuing no new undersea drilling permits. BP will need to be there for decades and you want other companies to develop experience in this regard. Tapping abiotic oil from under the seas will require all the world's great oil companies expertise. Geologists will need to get better educations than the one's they have gotten. The truth is geology is almost as 'mystical' a science right now as weather prediction. No one knows what is at the core, in the mantle or exactly how a planet forms in the first place and its relationship to the solar body it orbits.

Well...some people do, but they either work here or get their information here where no question is impossible to answer and where peeks behind the curtain of life are par for the course. ;-)

POSTSCRIPT 11-17-2010

Looks like my "soft release" of information has been successful. The energy companies are gently announcing that there is no shortage of fuel. This was necessary for their own financial health as well. In boom times more projects and construction creates more demand.

For all you oil engineers looking for the next big you go...courtesy of good ol' SDAI:

And this explains WHY I released the data:


Now get going, secure those drilling permits, encourage industry and the market with optimism! The peak oil propaganda stuff worked fine at generating market action and justifying prices during boom times, but now is just another anchor on the markets and industrial growth.

We're about to create a new boom and make the 21st century all it was promised to be...and more.

    great article but please don't make the leap to "there is no peak oil" just because you find a new kind of oil. that is just as ridiculous as saying you know the future. no one knows. that is the whole point.

  2. Interesting.

    I do find it remarkable that geologists claim that oil can somehow be formed by dead fish and forgotten forests, not only one mile below the sea, but a further FIVE miles into the crust?

    I know plates move, and can be subducted under the surface, but even so, the size an uniformity of these giant wells makes it hard to believe they could be the result of haphazard fish deaths and tree growth.

    Shouldn't we hope it's not abiotic, as you said, if it is, it won't stop....we just can't keep spewing oil into the ocean!!!

    Lubrication of the crust and upper mantle:
    STLE- do you have any input?

    The fact is that oil wants to be on the surface, it is the lightest thing down there, to say that it was created on the surface and managed to get so deep within the earth is akin to releasing a million hellium balloons and looking for them under the ocean. The whole notion of oil being from decayed carbon life forms is as plasible is a flat earth.

    I bet you they will Nuke it! Fact fact fact.
    That is the only solution but then also risky!
    A nuclear device can trigger other things and we do not have only oil there but lots of other nasty gasses and compounds!!
    I heard the pressures there is up to 70,000psi and we do not have the equipment to withstand that!It is already bubbling up some other places on the seabed some 20 miles away!This is a MAJOR CATASTROPHE!!Be ready, this is the worst Earth has ever seen.

    The rate at which the oil is being re-created is most likely (with my limited knowledge of geology and oil production) much slower than the rate at which we are burning it and spewing it into the atmosphere. Think of how long it must take for that oil to be reconstituted back into the oceans of oil miles below the surface!? So, despite if it is abiotic or it took millions of years to be created from decayed carbon based life forms, it still will take (almost) just as long, in which case peak oil and the energy problem are still very real threats.

    Someone said to "Nuke it". What if when they did, it fractured the underground formations and caused other leaks. I think we could contain the leak and produce the oil. Personally I don't think they want to stop the leak. I think oboma and the enviromentalist movement want the well to make an even worse mess to try to convince the public to shut down oil production for the so called "green jobs",and his socialist agenda. Why do you think it took so long for oboma to get active on this deal and only halfheartedly at the most. I also think the whole spill was not an accident. They do have an agenda and I think are willing to do anything for it to further their agenda. When obama ran for office he was against offshore drilling. When he was elected he gave his mentor george soros $2 billion of tax payer dollars for him to invest in offshore drilling off of the coast of Brazil. George Soros is a top investor in the state owned oil company in Brazil, Petrobras. Then they opened up offshore drilling off the Gulf of Mexico and a few weeks later the spill happened. Then he shut off drilling again saying it was two dangerous and risky drilling at such deep depths. The oil company Petrobras will drilling be drillling 2X the depth that we are in the Gulf, and they need the rigs to drill them. The oil companies in the gulf are already threatening to leave the Gulf for Brazil and west Africia which will shut down oil drilling for years to come in the gulf.

  9. The Dollar is backed by oil. In 1970 Nixon cut a deal with the O.P.E.C. Nations, we would back their "Dictators" who would be our Sherifs to enforce the agreement. The agreement was that they would only accept U.S. Dollars for their oil. Sadaam, Omar, and Hugo have all three renigged. Look out Hugo.
    If Abiotic oil is as plentiful as it appears, the Dollar is dumped, it collapses and we default on our debtors. There are four proven places where abiotic oil wants to "rise to the occasion" so to speak. The best known is in the Gulf of Mexico,
    The second is the Caspian Sea basin (Afghanistan) but last two which are little known are in Japan (earthquake), and the last one is believe it or not, it is just off the ,coast of "LYBIA", Qadaffi just said weeks ago that he was going to disconnect from the dollar and accept Euros for his oil. Japan won't pump because we want them to distribute our oil ( Alaska ) because they will use U.S.
    Dollars. There is so much Abiotic oil under Japan that "Mother Earth" just had a pressurized shifting of her plates. It was a 9.0 with lubricated tectonic plates that are still moving. The Gulf south of Luisiana is still burping Abionic oil and it will not stop until release the pressure by "DRILLING" do we want it in the water or in our gas tanks. The dollar collapses either way. Get ready for a new currency

  10. I just read a boatload of reasons that abiotic oil theory is not supported by evidence and almost without exception every bullet point was a "chicken and egg" scenario. They talk about matching "biomarkers" but which came first? They talk about "sedimentary rocks" but which came first? The list goes on. Anyway, thanks for your work on this. It's time free people stop letting the folks with money think for them.
