Je crois que dans la phrase originale, c'est de l'huile qu'on parle (mais la traduction en anglais par oil ne permet pas de faire la différence entre "pétrole" et "huile") :)

Unlink from Japanese.

It does match the English, though?

Yes. Oil can refer to Petroleum but 油 cannot (if I'm not mistaken).

Are we defining Petroleum in the same way?

pétrole = crude oil ?

I think you are mistaken about 油

油にまみれた鳥 birds smothered in oil
油による汚染 oil pollution
油が切れる 〈機械などが主語〉 run 「out [short] of oil; need oiling

Ok, I was wrong. Keep them linked then. Petroleum = an oily flammable bituminous liquid that may vary from almost colorless to black, occurs in many places in the upper strata of the earth, is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons with small amounts of other substances, and is prepared for use as gasoline, naphtha, or other products by various refining processes
