Dean has provided me with his latest update for Texas Oil and Natural Gas production. Texas C+C output has increased slightly over the first 3 months of 2016.
Texas C+C output was 3549 kb/d in March 2016, about 39 kb/d higher than February. Continue reading
Wind and solar energy consumption have grown quickly from 1994 to 2014 based on data from BP’s Statistical Review of World Energy 2015 at a rate of 25% per year combined. Historical data on oil consumption from 1900 to 1975 shows that oil use grew by about 7% per year over that period. Note that this rate of growth was constrained by demand for energy as evidenced by very low oil prices from 1950 to 1972 and the high rates of oil consumption growth from 1960 to 1970. World GDP and population grew rapidly over that period before supply constraints became apparent and rates of oil consumption growth slowed markedly after 1979.
This thread is intended for non fossil fuel topics. Whatever people would like to discuss.
I will have a new oil post up in a few hours (hopefully). So if you can wait, oil, natural gas and coal related topics would be better in that thread.
The North Dakota Oil Production Stats are out. North Dakota crude oil production was down just less than 10,000 barrels per day.
Bakken crude oil production was down 7,743 bpd in March while all North Dakota production was down 9,846 barrels per day.
