Oil and gas - produced by Amoco Production Company in more than 1200 fields in North America - are among the most adaptable resources known to modern man. Hydrocarbon molecules from oil and gas are the building blocks for thousands of products which we use in our daily lives - from gasoline to medicines to wearing apparel.

The ornament behind the fountain is the molecular model for Pentane (C5H12), one of the petroleum hydrocarbon building blocks. The five spheres represent the hydrogen atoms in the Pentane molecule. The cylinders are fashioned from subsurface rocks which are typical of the rock formations from which Amoco produces oil and gas. These rock beds are identified in the small model at left.
