Storyboard Text

  • Do you know how are fossil fuels formed?
  • Fossil fuels are formed from decayed plants and animals that have been converted to oil, coal, natural gas, or heavy oils by exposure to heat and pressure in the earth's crust over hundreds of millions of years.
  • These fossil fuel deposits are typically found at depths beneath the Earth surface or ocean floor of tens of meters to kilometers, and often occur in large agglomerations of gas, liquid or solid matter
  • How are these three fossil fuels recovered from the ground?
  • Fossil fuels are found in deposits beneath the earth. The fuels are burned to release the chemical energy that is stored within this resource. Energy is essential to moden society as we know it. Over 85% of our energy demands are met by the combustion of fossil fuels.
  • Combustion is a chemical process in which a substance reacts rapidly with oxygen and gives off heat.
  • Natural gas and home heating oil allow people to keep their homes at a comfortable temperature in the winter. Heating oil, like gas, must be processed into a usable form, while natural gas requires very little processing to become usable in the home. Propane, another type of fossil fuel, can be used to cook food and heat homes. It is the common source of fuel for trailers and outdoor barbecue grills.
