Hello again RGR - long time no see. I suspect that Peak Oil or equivalent will come along in due course ... it's a non-renewable resource and we use a lot of it. Peak oil expressed as a maximum between a starting and ending point of 0 is as axiomatic as it gets. Peak oil cannot be denied. Those who...

The growth of electric vehicle production might do away with another generation of oil production. We can only hope! Indeed. I've owned one for 6 years now. Down with liquid fuels!! Save the whales! And maybe the planet!! The best part? The wife takes it to work every day and gets premo parking bec...

Re: Mexico's Cantarell production down 34% in one year

Falling production is curbing exports to the U.S., which buys about 80 percent of the oil Mexico sells abroad. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601207&sid=aQF381AACFAI&refer=energy No problem ... it only one of the world's key oilfields: the third largest daily producer and the 12th...

Once peak oil became a rear view mirror event without noticeable impact, a change in mechanism was required. A bit off there. it should read 'Once peak oil becomes a rear view event with real impact a change in mechanism will be required.' We have not reached a true world peak where supply is reduc...

Would you care to discuss where I have it wrong? Upon review of the entire past page of postings I can't find it. However, you speak with a veneer of rationality (as an older gentlemen the man buns comment struck me as a near perfect characterization of how I feel about the topic) and in my experie...

Re: Ghawar fading faster than anyone expected

yada yada yada..... Indeed. I suggest that if we can't even discuss what a peak is rationally, then we should agree to disagree and be done with it. You have not provided a single shred of evidence to back up your claim other than an appeal to your own authority. Well, ask Vortex if he considers me...

Re: Ghawar fading faster than anyone expected

If the Saudis "do this quite well", .... Not "if". I've tutored the Saudi engineers in college, and worked with ARAMCO folks professionally. I made a statement, and it was based on experience working with their personnel. ...what is your explanation for why production is not cur...

Re: Ghawar fading faster than anyone expected

1. I didn't say it was "out of oil". Stop making shit up via the mis-characterisations of the posts of others. Correct. I did not mean to imply you had said this. What I did mean is that I am aware of the technical estimates of oil in Ghawar initially and remaining recoverable. I was just...

Re: Ghawar fading faster than anyone expected

It's wonderful what you can do with a lot of energy and a lot of sea water. The nett energy of the oil from Ghawar is dropping as fast as production. Another problem for the world at large. And do you have a reference for someone who has calculated the net energy from Ghawar and quantifies this cla...

Re: Ghawar fading faster than anyone expected

If production is "less than maximum", then production has, by definition, peaked. You mean, exactly like peak global oil production in 1979? Or US oil production in 1970 or so? Ghawar had peaked previously (by your definition), back during the 1970's. This is possible because Ghawar is a ...

The former prediction of Peak Oil may have been made redundant by new technology... Do you have a new technology in mind? The US development of resource plays with horizontal wells (beginning in 1927 or so) and hydraulic fracturing (late 1940's) is often claimed to be a new technology event and I a...

Re: Ghawar fading faster than anyone expected

Ghawar fading faster than anyone expected according to this article . I don't believe that anyone can characterize Ghawar as fading faster "than anyone expected" when it was the peak oilers themselves that declared it dying more than 15 years ago. Preserved at resilience.org here: Ghawar ...

Re: I have been away but I'm back now. Have I missed much?

Hello all, I left the forum ages ago ... I was posting far, far too much and so I had to call it a day to ensure my sanity. However I'm back. Have I missed much? Is Peak Oil still a thing? Nice to see you again! I am back as well. Peak oil ultimately came and went, and no one noticed. Which was cer...
