Are there better ways to express something in the passive voice. For example, wouldn't it be better to say, "Gaso estas trovinta sub la maro"?

I am not confident enough in my Esperanto to give concrete examples, but yes, the English sentence wasn't translated literally in this case. I would translate "Oni trovis gason sub la maro" as "They found gas below the sea."

Mi ankoraŭ komencantas, sed mi pensas, ke “Gaso estas trovinta sub la maro” postulus rektan objekton, ĉar “trovinta” estas aktiva participo, kiel se la gaso estu tio kio trovas alion. Anstataŭ, miaopinie, vi povus diri “Gaso estas trovita sub la maro”.

Despite all the gas, no place is better, down where is wetter.

Would "Gas has been found" be "Gaso trovitas" rather than gaso being the accusitive?

En PMEG oni povas legi, ke oni usas oni anstataŭ pasivo pli ofte en Esperanto ol en la angla.
