  1. 1. 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.

  2. 2. Giant Oil Fields - The Highway to Oil : Giant Oil Fields and their Importance for Future Oil Production

    Author : Fredrik Robelius; Kjell Aleklett; Robert Hirsch; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Engineering physics; giant oil fields; URR; future oil production; peak oil; forecast; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : Since the 1950s, oil has been the dominant source of energy in the world. The cheap supply of oil has been the engine for economic growth in the western world. Since future oil demand is expected to increase, the question to what extent future production will be available is important. READ MORE

  3. 3. World oil supply in the 21st century : A bottom-up perspective

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

    Abstract : Oil-fuelled progress was a defining feature of the 20th century, and still today, oil remains the world’s largest primary energy source. Yet, oil is a non-renewable and carbon-intensive resource, either depletion or resulting carbon emissions will ultimately limit its use. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modeling Oil Exploration and Production : Resource-Constrained and Agent-Based Approaches

    Abstract : The formation of modern society has been dominated by coal and oil, and together these two fossil fuels account for nearly two thirds of all primary energy used by mankind.  This makes future production a key question for future social development and this thesis attempts to answer whether it is possible to rely on an assumption of ever increasing production of coal and oil.
