Much has been said about the planet's gas and oil resources and many assumptions and speculations have been made regarding their rapid depletion, but a report on the normal and judicious management of these important planetary resources for both energy and other various materials that are obtained today from them, such as composites, synthetic fibers for fabrics, plastics, rubber produced synthetically ... The paper wants to clearly establish how these important planetary resources are produced and obtained, but also the possibility of extension their lives in symbiosis with the greening of the planet through the rational exploitation and use of these resources. Even if new oil and gas deposits are found from time to time, this fact cannot justify the almost continuous operation at large capacities of many of the old processed reserves, which have long been declared on extinct. Something is going on with these old oil deposits. They are in a continually rebuild or bring other deposits from somewhere in the depths of the earth from a probably a huge and deep reserve. The universe we live in is designed in such a way that it abounds in hydrogen, carbon, or combined gases, i.e., hydrocarbons, which under certain conditions pass into a viscous liquid state thus producing oil in large quantities. It is ridiculous to much longer support the theory that gases inside the earth were formed like oil otherwise from organic matter decomposed over time, possibly from dead dinosaurs that rotted and then turned into oil and gas. Hydrogen, the element whose nuclear fusion gives life to stars, including the Sun, is an extremely important wheel in the gear of the Universe and is also the most widespread element in the Universe, being the simplest of all chemical elements. As long as a reserve (bag) of oil or gas is not emptied very quickly, but is rationally exploited, it will recover normally by feeding from the internal source of the planet.
