Question by the_stig!: if oil is formed of fossils of animals and plants how come deserts have a lot of oil ?
while many other greener companies have no oil at all?

Best answer:

Answer by Geology Rock Star
Because deserts weren’t always deserts. They were once shallow seas, humid rain forests or other areas rich in life.
Likewise areas that don’t have oil were once areas that weren’t conducive for the production of oil. The east Coast of the USA, once once a huge mountain range, any oil bearing sediements have long since eroded away
