In 1757, Russian scholar Mikhail Lomonossov formulated what became the predominant theory of "rock oil" (petroleum) formation, otherwise called fossil fuel: Rock oil originates as tiny bodies of animals buried in the sediments which, under the influence of increased temperature and pressure acting during an unimaginably long period of time, transform into rock oil.
