I only did not knock because I want a brother.
Felicia: Okay. Well, that's disturbing. 'Cause you're not supposed to know anything about that! You're supposed to just think babies are cute!
Contrary to popular belief, oil is not made from dinosaurs. Hydrocarbons like oil and gas were created from various forms of biomass, and not from dinosaurs. Hence you would not have dinosaur teeth appear on the surface while drilling in an oil reservoir. While dinosaur fossils have been found when retrieving rock cores to investigate the subsurface, this is pure luck, and unrelated to the presence of an oilfield nearby. Any such fossils would be crushed by the drill-bit during normal drilling operations, like the one depicted in this movie.
During the opening logos and first few opening credits, you can hear a real life audio clip from the trial that ensued following the disaster.
