    History of Oil before Modern Petroleum. While the drilling of oil — which marks the start of the modern petroleum industry — dates only to the middle of the 19 th century, the knowledge of oil is very old. Oil was used more than five thousand years ago in Mesopotamia; bitumen was mined by the Sumerians, Assyrians, and Babylonians, who used it in architecture, building roads, caulking ships. OIL AND GAS de Moscoso, a survivor of the DeSoto expedition, recorded the first sighting of oil in the expedition was forced ashore in the area between Sabine Pass and High Island in July , the explorers observed oil floating on the surface of the water. They collected the asphaltic substance and used it to caulk their vessels.

    California petroleum museums exhibit technological and environmental advancements, discoveries, products and local pioneers. Many outstanding West Coast museums educate visitors about the state’s extensive petroleum heritage, which began with the First California Oil Well. The American Oil & Gas Historical Society provides updated links to these museums and petroleum museums in other states.   In the 19th-century Pennsylvania oil boom years, cities would be founded, grow exponentially in a short time, then become almost ghost towns as prices rode the roller coaster down.

To produce oil and gas from shale formations, it is necessary to increase the interconnectedness of the pore space (permeability) of the shale so that the gas can flow through the rock mass and be extracted through production wells. This is usually done by hydraulic fracturing ("fracking").
