How is natural gas formed?

Asked by Topperlearning User | 1st Sep, 2014, 10:09: AM

Expert Answer:

Natural gas was formed from the remains of dead sea organisms buried deep below the Earth's surface by layers of sediment (sand, mud, clay etc.). Over long periods of time, the dead organisms were transformed by heat and pressure into natural gas.
