7 show how, as marginal costs of exploration increase, incremental additions to reserves decrease, from which it can be judged how quickly reserves will be added, together with the exploration costs per unit of added reserves. Optimum extraction rates depend on markets as much as on the conditions of resource deposits. Indeed, the state of coal markets is often coal's key parameter. There are maximum and minimum extraction rates dependent on resource conditions. For extraction maxima, oil is limited by well-head pressure, coal by physical rates at which current technology allows extraction, these acting as minima, possibly below economic market extraction levels.

The four main gas markets are: (i) space heating; (ii) industrial steam raising; (iii) electricity generation; and (iv) feedstock for chemicals, petrochemicals and fertilizers. The last two categories are economic only at high load factors. One extreme market, Japan, uses 70% or more gas for electricity. Further gas markets depend on relative fuel prices.
