I would expect more stats from a vet? like wtf are you kidding me man? :jester:

Im an fake armchair sociologist/psychologist and have stats on the last page, or to be clearer said we should see what they are saying about Ghawar these days.

Reserves

In April 2010, Saad al-Tureiki, Vice-President for Operations at Aramco, stated, in a news conference reported in Saudi media, that over 65 billion barrels (10.3 km3) have been produced from the field since 1951. Tureiki further stated that the total reserves of the field had originally exceeded 100 billion barrels (16 km3).[18]

The International Energy Agency in its 2008 World Energy Outlook stated that the oil production from Ghawar reached 66 Bbo in 2007, and that the remaining reserves are 74 Bbo.[11]

Matthew Simmons, in his 2005 book Twilight in the Desert, suggested that production from the Ghawar field and Saudi Arabia may soon peak.[19]

When appraised in the 1970s, the field was assessed to have 170 billion barrels (27 km3) of original oil in place (OOIP), with about 60 billion barrels (9.5 km3) recoverable (1975 Aramco estimate quoted by Matt Simmons). The second figure, at least, was understated, since that production figure has already been exceeded.[19]

Well I heard the New Mexico portion of the Permian may haveaboutfifty billion and they found a lot of new oil in Guyana and you have the spraberry midland basin Delaware basin and eagleford technology and higher prices increases recoverable reserves expontially west Texas and southeast New Mexico will be pumping a hundred years from now in some way the cline shale may have billions

Sorry, but the amount of oil, gas, and coal is clearly finite, and it does NOT get renewed within any reasonable time frame. So it is simply not mathematically possible that we will "never" run out of oil, gas, and coal. The only question is when.

It will eventually be used up.
It is not a finite resource. 8)

But if it is left in the ground, it probably will last for a very, very long time. ;)

I think a "logical band-aid" is in order here. 8)

About 5 years ago. It was said that there was a 75-year supply of oil left to be drilled.

The Oil Guy has to say what he is saying. He’s in the oil business, after all!

That makes no sense: "the rest of our lives" != "infinite" or even "effectively infinite".

Also, whose lives - mine, yours, our grandchildren's children?
It seems a remarkably myopic viewpoint, given that the planet is clearly a finite resource. There are even pictures to show that this is all you get:
