Occasionally underground oil seeps to the surface. Then it is

easy to find. However, most oil is buried underground.We have to

drill through the rock to get it. Early rigs could only work on

land. However, we can now use oil platforms to get oil out from

under the sea bed.These geologists are looking for oil. They use

charts of rock layers called seismic surveys.When they find

places that might hold oil, they send out a drilling team to test

the site.
