The Russians for decades reinvested all there Oil profits in working out how to drill deeper as they always knew this and eventually worked out how to drill down to 40 thousand feet where the mineral is naturally produced this is why they have become the No 1 oil supplier in the world.
Ah, actually, no. That would be the United States:
U.S. surges past Saudis to become world's top oil supplier. Source
And I thought the whole abiotic oil theory had been disproved years ago.

I don't suppose those drillers are geologists?
