The geologic environment

Almost all the heavy hydrocarbon deposits have been found in formations of Cretaceous and Tertiary age (about 1,600,000 to 144,000,000 years old). The exceptions include some deposits in Alberta, Can., and in Russia. In Alberta bituminous Paleozoic carbonates unconformably underlie Mesozoic rocks (the Paleozoic Era began about 540,000,000 years ago and lasted until the beginning of the Mesozoic Era, roughly 245,000,000 years ago). In Russia most of the heavy hydrocarbons occur in strata dating back to the Paleozoic Era and earlier (i.e., the late Precambrian, which ended about 540,000,000 years ago). Some heavy hydrocarbons are found in Tertiary rocks in Central Asia.

The most prolific heavy hydrocarbon reservoir sediments are sandstones that were originally deposited in fluvial and deltaic, nearshore environments. The exceptions are the bituminous carbonate rocks of Alberta, Russia, and Central Asia. Smaller deposits of asphaltic carbonate rocks are common, notably in the Middle East and in Italy. Many heavy oil reservoirs have been found offshore beneath the continental shelves of Africa and North and South America. In addition, heavy hydrocarbons have been discovered beneath the Caspian, Mediterranean, Adriatic, Red, Black, North, Beaufort, and Caribbean seas, as well as beneath the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Mexico.

Βεβαίως, η απόλυτα ορθή γραφή είναι "palaeozoic" όπως επισημαίνει ο Νίκος.

Palaeozoic era
Era of geological time 570–245 million years ago. It comprises the Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian, Devonian, Carboniferous, and Permian periods. The Cambrian, Ordovician, and Silurian constitute the Lower or Early Palaeozoic; the Devonian, Carboniferous, and Permian make up the Upper or Late Palaeozoic. The era includes the evolution of hard-shelled multicellular life forms in the sea; the invasion of land by plants and animals; and the evolution of fish, amphibians, and early reptiles.
