Theory of abyssal non-biotic petroleum origin recognizes that crude oil and natural gas are the primordial substances and considers their migration and accumulation as a part of the natural process of the Earth's outgassing, which has been responsible for a creation of its atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere.

Keywords: oil gas formation, outgassing, methane hydrate.
