Fracking: greatly increased gas resource. Partial fracturing. High pressure underground causing fracturing in rock that releases gas. When oil prices went up, production did not increase. Suggests that there is a lack of elasticity. Huge fields in Saudi Arabia drenched in oil Russia and Saudi are similar in production Thermodynamics deltaG: free energy (energy available), driving force for things to happen deltaH: enthalpy/heat, heat moves deltaS: entropy, more mess is always favored
