    Striking Oil?

    Discussion in 'Research' started by Mikmaxs, May 10, 2016.

    So, I'm not a rock scientist. But, it seems like something I should make sure is at least slightly possible before I use it:
    I have some characters who are digging what's effectively a mineshaft. (It's not a mineshaft, but ignore that for now. It's a deep shaft into a mountain, they're just not mining.)

    Would it be even remotely possible for them to strike oil under a mountain, assuming that they dug deeply enough? If so, under what conditions? How about methane gas?

    Bottom line, you can't write what you want, it'll be credible.
