Aprimordial origin of terrestrial hydrocar-bons and a source of them at great depth, providing food for a vigorous microbiology at shallower depths—this is the viewpoint for which much evidence has been presented here.

Several types of investigations can be undertaken to acquire such confirming evidence.
