The Difficult Future Facing Black Gold
Daniele Ganser & Niklaus Boss, Swiss Info
Daniele Ganser: For conventional oil, that can be easily and cheaply extracted, "peak oil" was reached back in 2006, with 75 million barrels per day (bpd). For non-conventional oil, the peak will probably be reached before 2020.
Niklaus Boss: I don’t know. I imagine we are relatively close to the peak, and that without huge investment the amount extracted cannot be increased. . .
