An assessment of James Hamilton and Menzie Chinn illustrate how the OPEC quotas and the actual oil production differs:

  • James D. Hamilton is Professor of Economics at the University of California, San Diego
  • Menzie Chinn is Professor of Public Affairs and Economics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison
  • Read the following article by

    The interpretation that I have been favoring for why Saudi production fell by a million barrels per day over the last two years is that production from northern Ghawar, their most important oil field, has peaked.

Some say peak production is already at hand and the curde oil markets are out of control. The goal of this blog is to provide the most comprehensive and updated platform on the topic of peak oil.
