Em geral, sedimentos orgânicos enterrados em profundidades de 1.000 m a 6.000 m (a temperaturas de 60 °[[Celsius|C]] a 150 °C) geram óleo, enquanto sedimentos enterrados mais profundamente e a mais alta temperatura geram gás natural. Fonte mais profunda, mais "seca" do gás (isto é, quanto menor a proporção de [[gás natural condensado|condensados]] no gás). Devido a tanto petróleo e gás natural serem mais leves que a água, eles tendem a subir a partir de suas fontes até que seja [[Escoamento de petróleo|infiltrado]] à superfície ou estão presos por uma camada não-permeável de rocha. Eles podem ser extraídos da armadilha por perfuração.
The largest natural gas field is South Pars/[[Asalouyeh]] gas field, which is shared between [[Iran]] and [[Qatar]]. The second largest natural gas field is located in [[Novy Urengoy]], [[Russia]]. The gas field [[Haynesville Shale]] Louisiana-Texas has been projected bigger than South Pars, since this a new well it has not been officially recorded its overall power.
== Offshore gas fields ==

Like oil, natural gas is often found underwater in offshore gas fields such as the [[North Sea Oil|North Sea]], [[Corrib Gas Field]] off [[Ireland]], and the [[Sable Offshore Energy Project|Scotian Shelf]] near [[Sable Island]]. The technology utilized to extract and transport offshore natural gas is different from land-based fields in that a few, very large rigs are usually used, due to the cost and logistical difficulties in working over water.
Rising gas prices have encouraged drillers to revisit fields that, until now, were not considered economically viable. For example, McMoran Exploration has passed a drilling depth of over 32,000 feet (9754 m) (the deepest test well in the history of gas production) at the Blackbeard site in the Gulf of Mexico.<ref>A Famed Dry Hole Gets a Second Shot, Wall Street Journal, July 21, 2008, p.B1</ref> [[Exxon Mobil]]'s drill rig had reached 30,000 feet by 2006 without finding gas; Exxon Mobil abandoned the site.
