This paper discusses the current state of oil and gas origin problem. Author, with the help of Kuhn theory, justify that scientific revolution is happening in this field. Instead of competing organic and mineral theories in Petroleum Geology, new oil and gas paradigm considers oil and gas as renewable mineral resources of the planet. Theoretical basis for a new oil and gas paradigm is a biosphere concept of oil and gas generation developed by the author. It attributes to oil and gas generation with modern geochemical carbon and water cycle through the earth’s surface, in which oil and gas are its required products. Deposits of oil and gas are traps (refillable during development) of carbon circulating through the surface. Under the new paradigm biosphere concept fundamentally solves the problem of the origin of oil and gas. The concept consistently explains the main observed facts; organically solves the key balance problems of the carbon cycle; summarizes the organic and mineral theory about the genesis of oil and gas; reveals an important role in the formation of oil and gas hydrocarbon of the water cycle; helps to establish previously unknown physicochemical mechanism of hydrocarbons synthesis in the Earth’s crust; might as well have a technological influence on oil and gas formation in the subsoil.
