  • Of Milk Cows and Saudi Arabia Tue, 10 Sep 13, 11:59pm
    Under the desert in eastern Saudi Arabia lies Ghawar, the largest oil field in the world. It has been famously productive, with a per-well flow rate of thousands of barrels per day, owing to a combination of efficient water...
  • IEA Sankey Diagrams Sun, 8 Sep 13, 1:05pm
    The International Energy Agency has taken its share of abuse from The Oil Drum over the years for its rather optimistic forecasts. But it deserves a hearty shout-out for an invaluable resource it has on its web site: Interactive...
  • Back in March 2005 I posted my first offering to the new site that Kyle and I had agreed to call “The Oil Drum.” Now, some eight years later, this will be my final Tech Talk to appear on that site, and it is perhaps...
  • This is a guest post from WebHubbleTelescope. Here he provides a simplified explanation of his Oil Shock Model as applied to oil production from the Bakken formation. Previous contributions to THe Oil Drum from WHT can be...
  • What The Oil Drum Meant Thu, 29 Aug 13, 1:43pm
    The popular peak oil blog The Oil Drum (TOD) began in early 2005. I joined as a contributor in mid 2005, later becoming an editor, and I left the site in early 2008. TOD continued in the meantime, at least up until now...

  • The news that Saudi Arabia is planning to employ 200 drilling rigs next year (up from 20 back in 2005) suggests that there is a recognition that future reserves may not measure up to the planned volumes needed...
  • The Way I Saw Things Fri, 23 Aug 13, 5:56pm
    I often find myself wondering where my life would be today had I not stumbled across The Oil Drum in 2005. I don’t know that I would still be writing today were it not for my early experiences with TOD readers. As TOD winds...
  • Peak Oil Update - Final Thoughts Mon, 19 Aug 13, 5:20pm
    Since 2006, I've been tracking a set of oil production forecasts and trying to see how they performed over time. Comparing oil supply forecasts is not an easy task because of the many different assumptions, baselines, and...
  • From the time that The Oil Drum first began, and through the years up to the Recession of 2008-9 there was an increase in the price of oil, and that resumed following the initial period of that recession, and, in contrast...
  • This post is based on a talk I gave as an "undistinguished speaker" to the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) oil finders lunch in Aberdeen a few weeks ago...
  • The development of the shale gas deposits in the United States, led by the drilling and fracking of horizontal wells into the Barnett Shale of Texas at the turn of the century, has opened up a resource that continues to draw...
  • When Straight Lines Were Everything In the early years of this site and my forays into peak oil analysis, it amazed me that the primary OECD energy forecasting agencies worked out their oil supply forecasts by simply extrapolating...
  • In this post I will, amongst other things, present the results from my review of the Bakken portion of Leonardo Maugeri’s discussion paper “The Shale Oil Boom: A U.S. Phenomenon”
  • This post is seeded by a note from Luis de Sousa (h/t Luis) who noted a story in Mother Jones. That story, in turn, fed from one in the Toronto Star and is about surface contamination of oil, coming from the underlying...
