    derived from animal and plant remains from more than 300 million years ago (U.S. Department of Energy 2013). These remains were then coated with combinations of clay and rock called sediment (Energy Quest 2012). Sedimentary rock effectively protected the hydrocarbons in fossil fuels because it is inorganic and does not contain any carbon (NMOGA 2015). This applies pressure to the plants and animals as well as heating temperatures ranging 150-300 degrees Fahrenheit (NMOGA 2015). After millions of years the deceased plants and animals transform from their organic state to hydrocarbons (NMOGA 2015).…

    the reservoir toward borehole where the pressure drops. The mechanism only exists and persist only when aquifer better or equal in quality than the reservoir hence having larger volume that reservoir (Brooks & Omoigui, 2012). In addition, aquifer water has to communicate with the surface recharge for a good assimilation report. The water drive shows effectiveness in oil reservoir compared in the gas reservoir. In circumstances where in field’s aquifer water is smaller or have lower quality, it…
