    Fracking decrease already going on with low oil & gas prices in USA etc.in world 2017 still 3.9% gas burned away.
    Recommended is very quick gas consumption increase with new 1000bar 2t 2.4m CNG pebble tank system quickly worldwide usable 5 connected like 40' ISO container for heat & electricity, 700bar cars & trucks
    etc. if LNG terminal build filled there.
    CNG never going out because easy makable out of electrolyse H2 + CO2.
