Lagos — A new report authored by the United Kingdom Energy Research Centre (UKERC) has painted a gloomy picture on the future availability of conventional oil, which could have severe economic impact across the world. Also, Nigeria's gas utilisation project at the Ovade-Ogharafe oil field in Delta State has been successfully registered under the United Nations Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the Kyoto Protocol, boosting Federal Government's efforts to reduce gas flaring and improve utilisation. The report entitled "Global Oil Depletion: An Assessment of the Evidence for a near-term Peak in Global Oil ...

The death of Matt Simmons is a great loss « Aleklett's Energy Mix
Yesterday afternoon I received a message from Matt Simmons’ assistant Laura Russell that I found difficult to believe – it read that Matt had died suddenly. A few hours later the news had spread over the entire world (e.g. see an article in the Washington Post ). It is with great sorrow that I now write these words. In the autumn of 2001 I visited Colin Campbell in Ballydehob in Ireland. During the visit we discussed the possibility of organizing an international workshop on Peak Oil in Uppsala during the spring of 2002. I remember that I said that we needed speakers from the Middle East, Russia and the USA if we were to call ... market research, surveys and trends
When Truth is Unbelievable | Peak Oil News and Message Boards
As a college junior I frequented a website ( where prognosticators observed that with accelerating rates of environmental destruction, overpopulation and fossil fuel depletion, modern civilization was on the verge of collapse. Despite the alarmist tone, these writings were not pseudo-scientific rants, but well-researched articles by eminent authors spelling doom. And there were books on these subjects, too, such as Richard Heinberg’s The Party’s Over: Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies. I kept my new-found realization that life as we knew it was coming an end to myself, for fear of being labeled a ... market research, surveys and trends


Mexico: Oil Depletion and Illegal U.S. Immigration -
Mexico's oil industry is, in large part, a direct reflection of the country's economic well-being. As those who have been following global oil output are aware, production in Mexico has started to wane, and just might decline very rapidly. Since the Mexican federal budget depends very heavily on oil revenues, the country may be faced with some tough times ahead, leading to increased pressures among its citizens to migrate north into the U.S. The giant Cantarell oil field lies deep under the water of the Gulf of Mexico. But in financial terms it stands astride the entire nation of Mexico. Since its discovery in ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Peak Oil Primer (previously named Overview) | ODAC - The Oil ...
Oil is the world's premier source of energy and is fundamental to almost every important function of modern life. It fuels 95 percent of land, sea and air transport, so the efficient movement of raw materials and goods, as well as personal mobility, is almost entirely oil-dependent. Food production too relies heavily on oil to run farm machinery and to make fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides. Oil generates 40 percent of the world's commercial energy, provides heating fuel, and drives industry and commerce. No other existing energy source can match the versatility, convenience and low cost of oil. Moreover, it ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Louisiana Department of Natural Resources - News Release
Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Secretary Scott Angelle said today that the push by the White House to end long-standing tax incentives as part of the 2011 federal budget is a push toward higher energy prices, greater dependence on foreign sources of energy and fewer jobs in the state and nation.  “Even with the existing tax incentives to promote domestic energy exploration and production, our country still has to import almost 60 percent of our oil,” Angelle said. “If we raise the costs and risk of domestic production, that imbalance will only grow worse and further threaten our ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

How has bp stock price fared in light of the Gulf oil spill?
Welcome to the ODAC Newsletter, a weekly roundup from the Oil Depletion Analysis Centre, the UK registered charity dedicated to raising awareness of peak oil. As oil companies reported sharply increased profits this week, an estimated 5000 barrels of oil a day was spewing into the Gulf of Mexico following the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig. This ecological disaster comes just a month after President Obama gave the green light to expand drilling off the US coast, and while the timing of the disaster could hardly be worse for big oil's PR, it is unlikely that policy will change as a result: the oil depletion ...
Google Answers: Oil depletion impact on earth
I would like to know if there is any science available that has determined what the impact on the earths surface will be when we have totally depleted the subterranean oils? I'm not a geologist, so I can't give you an expert assessment. But I can say that oil isn't, as many people visualise it, trapped in cavernous pockets, which would be left spatiously empty once the oil is drained from them. On the contrary, crude oil is trapped amid porous rock. It's closer to being held in a sponge than a cave. So when the crude oil is finally exhausted from an underground reservoir, there's really ...
