Facts About Crude Oil

So far, more than 90% of the world's energy needs are supplied from fossil fuels. Oil & Gas Journal estimates in early 2004, world crude oil reserves are 1.27 trillion and for natural gas is 6100 trillion cubic feet (TCF). This increases the amount of 53 billion barrels and 575 trillion cubic feet of the previous year because of new inventions and technological improvements. Using the consumption figures of 2003, a reserve of it can last for 44.6 years to 66.2 years for oil and gas. If you hold on to this figure, seems to have fossil fuels will disappear and the earth is about half of the next century. In fact, when using the data of 2002 U.S. Department of Energy, the oil will run out in less time of 36.5 years since 2002. Two recent reports from the Congressional Research Services (CRS), namely 1985 and 2003, the Energy Commission in Congress also stated that if there is no change in usage patterns, just sufficient oil reserves for 30-50 years.
