Part II: Preparing for a Future Defined by Peak Oil

In Part I of this report , we discussed the odd push by some media outlets and Citibank to declare Peak Oil ‘over’ based on the exciting results coming from the Bakken shale oil play. While I, too, think the shale oil plays are exciting, and they certainly will help to mitigate the impact of Peak Oil to some extent, the idea that we can now relegate Peak Oil to the dustbin is a dangerous idea.

Since I have been asked by many of you to analyze the Bakken results, I will do so here with enough context and data to estimate its impact on future oil prices. Then we’ll cover the implications of all this on our responses and actions.
