Re-writing forum history is also what you do. You were going on an on about how Southern European "cultures" just were not "homogeneous" enough, and their people were "lazy." Dog whistle much?

Don't weasel out of it, own it.

FYP...

Good job ignoring the fact that the industry, as a whole, is not maintaining sufficient cash flow, and desperately needed investment opportunities are drying up.

Yeah, no. It's clear you still don't actually understand what peak oil refers to, and continue to confuse short-term production gain with longer-term production promise.

It's not how much you can ramp up and produce in a given month or year when Wall St. gives you an open line of credit. It's about how much you can prove you can produce going forward. No one expects your heroes in the tight oil industry to expand much further. That band has stretched as far as it can go.

Because as we've covered dozens of times, your "no problem" argument needs every last drop of new production coming in. Lop off 1/3 of producers in 18 months, watch CAPEX nosedive for the survivors (already is), then you've got serious problems on the near horizon. The "market" you worship so fervently doesn't just fix that scenario, seamlessly and quickly. It's a complete dislocation of all markets, as we'll see soon enough.

We're not talking about copper here. We're talking about oil, the lifeblood of all industrial society. The health of the oil industry is what maintains "business as usual" for the global economy, whether you want to acknowledge it or not.

Any way you want to slice it, we are LONG past the point of the oil industry maintaining positive cash flow. That is absolutely because of depletion, and we're delaying the inevitable with this short, uneconomic wave of tight oil production. If we took away the subsidy and the baseless loans (to frackers) and the demand-slowing austerity, I think we can all agree that oil price would be much, much higher right now.

That's what my post referred to two years ago, troll.

7th of July, 2017,at 2:48PM : Jiggs predicts peak "tight oil". Claims social validation of said belief.

And thank you for the below, this is wonderful, old school Jiggs

Jiggs claims peak positive cash flow for producers of a commodity that's the lifeblood of the economy, which he also claims is in a peak and soon to be declining production.

The mental acrobatics required to reconcile those contradictory positions has given us much pleasure. I'm glad you're back and kicking.

If your post were accurate and we were successfully phasing it out, global oil consumption wouldn't still be going up with each passing year.

It's funny that you mention anyone else somehow "not understanding" oil markets.
I didn't say electric was an "energy source", but oil is very rarely used to generate electricity worldwide. So if transportation fuel starts coming out of the socket, instead of a gas pump, you're going to have natgas/solar/nuclear/coal/wind as the fuel source that replaces oil in transportation. And transportation is way more than half of oil demand. That's not an immediate problem for oil producers, but it's sorta lurking in the future as a huge fall off demand.

Offshore oil is not only very cheap on a relative basis (you're looking at breakeven crude points from the 30s to the 60s for most projects, which is why they've stopped doing them with oil this low), but is also incredibly plentiful. We have barely scratched the surface of offshore oil, and technology continues to give us access to ever deeper fields at reduced costs. But again, with oil so cheap and oversupplied, there is just idle offshore machinery sprinkled all over the world.

I did not say oil was being phased out, I said this will likely happen in the future as gas pumps are supplanted by sockets. The high density applications (jet fuel) will take much, much longer to replace and plastic applications may never be replaced, but these are fractional pieces of oil demand.

So just to reiterate again: oil is very oversupplied right now, there is cheap oil all across the world not being drilled now because oil is so cheap and oversupplied, and oil may be PERMANENTLY oversupplied because demand may start plummeting within the next 10-15 years due to a permanent move away from oil-fueled transportation and towards electricity-fueled transportation.

I mean kinda ironically you've stumbled onto something that could happen soon. Not because any of the idiocy you're spouting about peak oil, but oil oversupply could lead to (or create the conditions for) a civil war in Venezuela, Brazil, or even KSA/other middle eastern countries.

How do you figure? Adoption rates aren't linear. Being 10k more expensive than an ICE equivalent isn't much different than 25k more in terms of it's wide scale appeal. The difference between 10k more and cost parity makes a huge difference though and we're right about there. Prices could drop even more than that. And if oil prices go up in any significant way it just expedites the process.

Re: Oil majors dumping capital expenditures...

Peak oil supply being thoroughly disproven, we need to start talking about the problem of peak oil demand, which is a certainty thanks to the coming electrification. That will impact some industries pretty heavily. I predict peak oil demand will occur roughly in 2024, after which time demand will fall further and further under supply.

Re: Oil majors dumping capital expenditures...

Mother of god Jiggs... You still believe in peak oil? How? Oil, as a technology, is at the 'approaching obsolescence' stage while oil extraction technology has improved drastically allowing for reserves that effectively did not exist when people dreamed up peak oil to be tapped.

High oil prices always depended on the richest nation in the world needing vast quantities of imported oil. Now we don't. The market has reacted accordingly.

You really can't see that the game has changed completely can you?

LOL.... we still import 9 million barrels per day. Most in the world, until China recently nosed past us.

No one disputes technology for tight oil plays has improved, and production cost for each individual fracking well has fallen a little. You still have to move your well-head every 2-3 years with this crap, and production cost hasn't come down nearly as far as you cornucopians insist. The industry as a whole still isn't making money enough to maintain future exploration and infrastructure expansion.

You're all crowing about "over-supply," when all this is is lack of storage amid a short-term burst in production enabled entirely by unsustainable levels of credit. This has been shown dozens of times in links "no problem" trolls never read.

There is ZERO indication of long-term supply stasis when factoring in the industry is literally shrinking (see OP).

"the coming electrification" .... LOL...

you don't know what you're talking about. Demand is only inelastic up to certain barriers. Demand for the most efficient energy source we've ever harnessed is relentless, and not going away any time soon until the price spikes again into the economy-killing triple digits it was for 5 years.

The Global Oil Demand Driver That Is Being Ignored

the conversation often overlooks the role that heavy trucks and freight play in driving demand. The International Energy Agency just published a report arguing that the world needs to get a handle on fuel efficiency for freight, or else oil demand will continue to rise, regardless of how many Tesla’s are on the road.
EVs don't move freight, as we've covered. Not in any mass commercial scale, despite decades of trying. Now, I'm sure you'll frantically pour over "teh Googlez" and hammer out some screed with a link to some test-phase innovator showing their new EV 18-wheeler struggling up a hill, but they're really no closer to making that happen than they were 40 years ago.

Peak demand is painfully LOL, as the Douglas & Westwood presenter in the OP fleshed out rather clearly.

If your "peak demand" argument had any merit, your hero wouldn't be bending over so that his Russian idol could tap the final frontier: the polar ice caps.

No we haven't covered that at all. EVs can and will move the majority of freight, in 15 years. As for use of oil in freight, I posted the numbers above. Did you even read them? Trucks are irrelevant when cars electrify. They're less than 1/4 of all oil demand, cars are roughly half.

Quote:

This is like saying computers will never do word processing because they've never done it, despite decades of trying?

Are you unaware that energy density has been improving constantly and rapidly for 40+ years? And that it's finally reaching the point of cost parity with ICE vehicles?

Hammer this into your brain:

1. There is a point which batteries are sufficiently cheap and energy dense that they're cheaper and offer a better experience than gasoline.
2. That point is less than a decade away for cars and less than 15 years for semi trailer trucks.

These two points aren't in contention, by the way.

Demand hasn't peaked yet. And even when it does, light crude will still be profitable as long as the price is above $10-$30 depending on the well.

Anyway, I love you Jiggs. A deep abiding man-love. The level of pure defiance of reality amidst the dismal failure of your own predictions is legendary

LOL!!!! ... Still no links, just more "trust me" sentiment. Source your claim so we can all laugh at the context you're ignoring, or just do yourself a favor and stop posting about topics you obv. don't understand.

No, it isn't. And won't be for another 30+ years, if all goes perfectly. See, this is how links work in support of one's argument, try it some time:

Argonne: EVs may be almost as energy-dense as gasoline vehicles by 2045
An analysis by a team at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) has found that by 2045, some configurations of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) could become almost as energy-dense as legacy vehicles, if the efficiency of the powertrain as a whole is considered.
"Some configuations..." "could become..."almost as" ... "if the" ...
Holy crap, that's a lot of qualifications! And this is a pro-EV article!!!

Clown.

Well, for the absolute best fields, anyway, as we've covered, and you continue to conveniently ignore. For the average field around the world? More like $70-90. And we both know the global economy isn't buoyed by only the elite wells.

LOL... You keep telling yourself that, fraud. Linking my previous posts out of context is a tried practice of yours. You hate when I hold you accountable for your notable pattern of dishonesty and overt racism.

Tell us more about how "lazy cultures" are ruining Europe from the south on up.

Oh this is beautiful man. You really are that ill-read that you don't even understand what's being said in your own link, or how it relates to question of EVs being at superior cost (and everything else) to ICE in the near future (experts peg that date at around 2022). I won't correct you, I will just leave others to laugh at the stupid.

Do yourself a favor and read 10 or 20 articles on EVs, maybe a scholarly paper or two, then get back to me.

I'll just quote myself again. These statements are not controversial in any way. You can learn them, or continue being ignorant:

Look at you dancing. You don't even understand what goes into factoring cost, on an apples to apples basis. You failed miserably at that last year.

And you sure as hell don't actually understand energy density.

Link your claim that they are "15 years away," or admit you're just pretending it's true because you want it to be true.

You're quite literally insane. When an EV:

- Has an electric motor + baterry pack that costs less to car manufacturers than an ICE + supporting components
- Has enough range to drive all day

It reaches cost parity and becomes superior to an ICE car. It also has much lower running costs (already). Given that batteries are far from done improving in energy density and cost, it gets more and superior every year after parity, such that ICE are quickly wiped from the mainstream market.

The link above you mercilessly beclowned yourself with (really, these own goals are getting embarrassing) is talking about the point at which a battery system weight-for-weight has as much usable power (including efficiencies efficiencies) as gas does.

What does that have to do with cost parity? Absolutely zero. You're so silly you don't understand that. I thought maybe you were somewhat intelligent and just had some kind of schizotypical fixed delusions around oil/energy, but you can't even understand simple concepts.

I'm not going to link what's common knowledge. And we're 5-7 years away, not 10 or 15, from battery/ICE cost parity for cars.

Again, I repeat, what I stated is not controversial. It's up to you to get your head around reality.

Re: Oil majors dumping capital expenditures...

This is the trend in battery pack pricing:



It's predicted to halve by 2020 and halve again by 2023. And that's a conservative estimate. 100 kWh is an all day charge (all-week for even long range city commuting) with ICE-superior performance. And the battery pack will cost $5000, another 2-3000 for the motors and charging system. Against that, cars lose:

- ICE engine
- Muffler, gearbox, heavy drive components, engine mounting
- Radiator, hoses, sump, oil system
- Starting battery
- Catalytic converters, other expensive pollution systems
- Fuel injection system, overall hundreds of complex components.
- The cost of assembling, designing, servicing, warrantying, JITing this ultra complex system.
- For the end user, the large cost of gasoline and maintenance.

Do you see why cost parity will be reached? Do you see why they'll be vastly superior? Three years later, the cost of the battery pack will be halved again, to $2500. Do you see why ICE cars are going to be wiped off the map?
