  3. 3. World oil supply and unconventional resources : Bottom-up perspectives on tight oil production

    Author : Henrik Wachtmeister; Mikael Höök; Roger Bentley; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; oil supply; oil production; unconventional resources; tight oil; shale oil; bottom-up model; projections; Natural Resources and Sustainable Development; Naturresurser och hållbar utveckling;

    Abstract : Oil is the world’s largest primary energy source. It dominates the transportation sector which underpins the world economy. Yet, oil is a nonrenewable resource, destined not to last forever. In the mid-2000s global conventional oil production stagnated, leading to rising oil prices and fears of permanent oil scarcity.
