Oil ‘peak’ not seen coming any time soon - Oil & Energy - MSNBC.com (904 words)
Cambridge Energy Research Associates said that, instead of a crest being reached sometime this decade, an inflection point in world oil output will occur sometime beyond 2020, after which production will plateau for several more decades.
The CERA report is a counterweight to the predictions of some energy experts, who in recent years have been publishing books filled with charts and graphs that aim to prove that world oil production is about to peak, if it hasn't already.
The CERA report acknowledges that there will be fewer giant oil fields found and produced after 2010, but it argues that with new technology and multibillion dollar investments the petroleum industry has the ability to provide more than enough supply to meet rising demand.
