  • 2015: The year oil peaked? – Ecologise
    JODI does not report With these Changes I think I have composed an excellent World Oil Database from this composite data And with the October data just released I have composed the below charts The data is through October and is in thousand barrels per day World oil production peaked so far in July at 76 702 000 barrels per day and in October stood at 76 128 000 bpd or 574 000 bpd below the peak Non OPEC peaked so far in December 2014 at 45 530 000 bpd and in October stood at 44 662 000 down 868 000 bpd or just under 2 in 10 months For the first time in 4 years Non OPEC production has dropped below the level it was the same month the previous year This means the 12 month trailing average has turned negative though just barely Non OPEC less the USA has been on a 12 year bumpy plateau In fact it stood at 35 422 000 barrels per day in October 214 000 bpd less than the level reached in December 2003 The data here prior to 2012 is from the EIA Russia and the USA are by far the two largest Non OPEC producers At best Russia has plateaued but most analysts predict she will begin to decline next year I think that prognostication is correct Russia I believe will slowly decline beginning in 2016 The data for 2015 is the average for the first 10 months Russia has increased production every year since 1999 except 2008 when we had the big crash Some were expecting a similar crash in 2015 They were surprised Siberian Surprise I was not and I don t expect a crash next year either I just expect production in 2016 to be slightly less than this year Non OPEC less USA and Russia is clearly in decline Five years of oil prices above 100 could not prevent the decline But 100 oil has brought a lot of Non OPEC oil on line What it did do was prevent this decline from being a lot steeper had oil been in the 60 or below range Of course if we are talking peak oil we must include OPEC Above is OPEC crude only production through November It is obvious to me anyway that OPEC is producing flat out Only Iran has much potential to increase production Most analysts think they can only increase production about half a million barrels per day But that will only likely replace decline in other OPEC nations OPEC production will likely hold steady for the next four or five years before starting a steady decline OPEC production will not prevent peak oil Rockman who posts now over on PeakOil com recently posted the following which I though was so clear and to the point that it deserved a post here also Looker So in fact peak oil will really bite when it is not so economically viable to find and produce

  • Sagar Dhara: Response to Alan Rusbridger – Ecologise
    The world is addicted to fossil fuels for good reasons They are the densest known energy source other than nuclear fuels and have an Energy return on energy invested EROEI of 15 50 i e 1 Joule invested in obtaining fossil fuels yields 15 50 Joules J as surplus energy Almost all other energy sources have lower EROEIs e g photovoltaics PV 4 10 solar thermal 2 5 A high EROEI makes fossil fuels cheap The average international levellized energy cost of power generated by a fossil fuel plant is Rs 3 4 kWh whereas it is over Rs 5 kWh for wind and solar plants Recent advances in wind and solar energy technologies have reduced their costs but they are still above that of fossil fuel plants If externalities of these energy sources were to be included these costs would change a bit but to what extent is still to be worked out as the environmental impacts of solar and wind generating plants are still not well understood A high EROEI makes fossil fuels return large profits Using more fossil fuels creates more surplus energy that translates into higher profits A market economy driven by profits is in contradiction with the environment that needs a reduction in fossil fuel use to avoid the ravages of global warming Large profits accrued by increasing fossil fuel use do not necessarily result in inclusive development India s per capita energy consumption is twice that of Cambodia s Fossil fuels contribute 45 and 15 of India and Cambodia s primary energy Yet India s human development index HDI is only one rank above Cambodia s India has 54 of its population below the multi dimensional poverty MDP line whereas Cambodia has only 47 Fossil fuels are being harnessed by Indian businesses to cater to middle class consumerism to reap large profits At lower per capita energy consumption levels that have low fossil fuel percentage Cambodia s standard of life matches India s Bangladesh Bhutan and Laos performance is similar to Cambodia s Srilanka has outperformed India Its per capita energy consumption is two thirds of India s yet its HDI is 62 ranks above India s and its population below the MDP line is below 5 Solar energy travails Commercial solar energy is not without problems Solar PV panel manufacture emits CO2 as fossil fuels are used to make them Life cycle analysis studies indicate that if the growth rate of PV panel manufacture exceeds the inverse of its CO2 payback time PV will emit more CO2 in its manufacture than it will save by substituting fossil fuel burning The global average CO2 payback period is about 8 years i e PV growth should be below 12 per annum for it to be a net CO2 mitigator But PV grew at 40 and 59 per annum between 1998 2008 and 2008 2014 respectively making it a net CO2 emitter since 1998 PV capacity at the end of 2013 was 140 GW less than
