Kjell Aleklett, president of the Association for the Study of Peak Oil, provides a compact summary of how oil depletion is turning more and more countries into net importers. Here's the key paragraph:
By 2010 the following countries have the potential to produce more oil than they have ever produced before; Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Kazakhstan and Bolivia. These countries will have to cover the decline in 59 countries and the increased demand from the rest of the world. Anyone that can provide information showing that this is possible must do it now.Do we have any takers?
