How Long Can the U.S. Oil Boom Last?
The long-term problem for oil frackers isn't just low prices. It's low reserves.

Dennis Dimick

National Geographic (

Published December 19, 2014

Now that oil prices have dropped to levels not seen since 2009, helped by a flood of oil flowing from hydraulic fracturing or fracking wells ( in North Dakota and Texas, it's time to ask the question:
How long can the U.S. oil boom last?

In the short term, the price drop threatens profits from fracking, which is more expensive than conventional drilling.
Sure enough, permit applications to drill oil and gas wells in the U.S declined almost 40 percent
( in November.

But in the long term, the U.S. oil boom faces an even more serious constraint:
Though daily production now rivals Saudi Arabia's, it's coming from underground reserves that are a small fraction of the ones in the Middle East.

That geologic reality is easy to forget in the euphoria of the boom.
Output from oil fracking in the U.S. , from about one million barrels per day in 2010 to more than three million barrels per day at the end of 2013.
Total U.S. oil production has risen to more than nine million barrels a day (, a level close to 1970's historic high and nearly as high as the 9.6 million barrels of daily oil production from Saudi Arabia. (

Years of oil prices above $100 per barrel have driven a boom in oil production from shale, providing thousands of oil field jobs and boosting U.S. production to near-record levels.

While the U.S. still relies on imports for about 40 percent of its petroleum (, oil imports have dropped since 2005 because of improved domestic supply from oil fracking, better vehicle fuel efficiency, and depressed fuel demand as a result of the 2008 economic crash.
The U.S. Department of Energy reports a growing surplus of domestic oil.

Because of all these factors, oil prices that regularly reached more than $100 per barrel the past three years ( have dropped about 40 percent to $60 or below.
On December 10 the Energy Department projected an average price of $63 per barrel for West Texas intermediate crude for all of 2015. (
In late November, gasoline prices in the U.S. fell to five-year lows (

Breaking Even With Fracking

Fracking oil or gas from mile-deep shales is expensive:
It requires deep vertical and horizontal drilling ( and injections of chemicals, sand, and water at high pressure.
Until now, high oil prices have nonetheless made fracking a lucrative investment.
More than a million fracked oil or gas wells ( exist in the U.S.

With oil prices down, so are profits.
Recent analysis by Scotiabank estimates that frackers need $69 per barrel of oil ( to make money.
One oil executive quoted in the Economist ( said he can cope as long as the oil price is above $50.
Another said the industry is "not healthy" below $70.

Businessweek reports that the "dirty secret" of the shale oil boom is that it may not last. (
Fracked wells are short-lived, with a well's output typically declining from more than 1,000 barrels a day to 100 barrels in just a few years.
New wells must be drilled frequently to maintain production.

While wells currently pumping can survive low market prices because they have already incurred startup and drilling costs, low oil prices diminish the incentive to invest in new well investments.

Of course, as Michael Webber of the University of Texas at Austin told the New York Times (, price fluctuations are part of a repeating cycle in the oil business over the past century.
No one thinks the current low prices are permanent.

"This is what commodity markets do," Webber said.
"They go to high price, and high price inspires new production and also inspires consumers to use less.
After a couple of years of that, prices collapse.
Then low prices inspire consumers to consume more and encourage suppliers to turn off production.
Then you get a supply shortage and prices go back up."

Saudi Arabia remains the world's largest oil producer.
Known Middle East oil reserves are vastly bigger than U.S. oil shale reserves.

Geological Limits

While low prices may only temporarily throttle expansion of oil fracking, the underlying geology—deeply buried shale rock that contains diffuse hydrocarbons (—looms as a more fundamental limit on fracking's future.
Recent projections indicate that by decade's end or a few years after, U.S. oil production from fracking will likely flatten out as supplies are depleted.

"A well-supplied oil market in the short-term should not disguise the challenges that lie ahead," International Energy Agency (IEA) chief economist Fatih Birol said in releasing the IEA's 2014 World Energy Outlook. (

The IEA report projects that U.S. domestic oil supplies, dominated by fracking, will begin to decline ( by 2020.
"As tight oil output in the United States levels off, and non-OPEC supply falls back in the 2020s," the report says, "the Middle East becomes the major source of supply growth."

Earlier this year the U.S. Energy Information Agency (EIA) also forecast a plateau in U.S. oil production after 2020. (

The basis for these forecasts are estimates of shale oil reserves.
A 2013 Energy Department report on technically recoverable shale oil (—the amount that's recoverable without regard to cost—puts U.S. potential at 58 billion barrels.
That's equivalent to a little more than eight years of U.S. consumption at the current rate of almost 19 million barrels a day. (

The Energy Department's estimate of "proved reserves" of shale oil—those that can be recovered economically today—is only about ten billion barrels (
That's about a sixth of technically recoverable reserves, and less than a year and a half's worth of current consumption.
Proved reserves include all currently known U.S. oil shale resources-North Dakota Bakken, Texas Eagle Ford, Colorado and Nebraska Niobrara, Texas Barnett, and others.

In contrast, the proved reserves ( from just three Middle East nations—Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates—total more than 460 billion barrels.
That's 46 times U.S. shale oil reserves, and more than 12 times the total U.S. oil reserves. (

Those estimates help explain why the IEA projects the Middle East as "the major source of future supply growth," long after the U.S. shale oil boom has run its course.
Price is important, but whether oil exists at all is even more so.

If the looming global oil crunch has been postponed for another decade or two as widely alleged, this is far from obvious in today’s commodity markets.

the crude market tightens by 2.4m barrels a day (bpd), with little extra supply in sight.

Goldman Sachs said the industry is chronically incapable of meeting global needs.
“It is only a matter of time before inventories and OPEC spare capacity become effectively exhausted, requiring higher oil prices to restrain demand,” said its oil guru David Greely.

This is a remarkable state of affairs given the world economy is close to a double-dip slump right now, the latest relapse in our contained global depression.

Britain, the eurozone, and parts of Eastern Europe are in outright recession.
China has “hard-landed”, the result of a monetary shock and real M1 contraction last winter.

Yet the deeper force at work is the relentless fall in output from the North Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, ... , and the escalating cost of extraction from deep sea fields.

Nothing has really changed since the IEA warned four years ago that the world must invest $20 trillion in energy projects over the next 25 years to feed the industrial revolutions of Asia and head off an almighty crunch.
The urgency has merely been disguised by the Long Slump.
Kamakshya Trivedi and Stacy Carlson from Goldman Sachs say a disturbing pattern has emerged where each tentative recovery in the world economy sets off an oil price jump that it turn aborts the process.
A two point rise in global manufacturing indexes leads to a 30pc rise in oil prices a few months later.
It is the reality that the oil sector has been pushed to the limit of its capabilities ...
US shale has helped the world avert an immediate crunch.
It buys us a little more time to build a new generation of nuclear power stations -- preferably based on thorium -- and to achieve the Holy Grail of unsubsidised grid parity in solar technology.

Peak Oil may or may not have been discredited.
Peak Cheap Oil remains to haunt us.

So far : Peak cheap oil is an incontrovertible fact by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard

( original title : Low Oil Prices Lead to Economic Peak Oil )

MHIP made a more extended summary of the full article
Click here for more complete article with plenty of graphics
( original link : )

High oil prices make countries that use large amounts of oil less competitive with countries that use less fuel in general, and less oil in particular.
If we look at the 2008 situation, oil limits were very much behind the overall problem, even though most people do not recognize this connection.
It was the fact that oil limits eventually led to credit limits that caused the system ( including oil prices ) to crash as it did. 
High oil prices led to debt defaults and bank write offs, and eventually led to a huge credit contraction in economies of the developed world.
This credit contraction affected not just oil demand, but demand for other energy products as well.

The problems of the 2008 period were never really solved:
the lack of growth in world oil supply remains, and this lack of growth in world oil supply continues to hold back world economic growth, particularly in developed countries.
We recently have not been feeling the effects as much, because with deficit spending, the problems have largely moved from the private sector to the government sector.

The situation remains a tinderbox, however.

The financial situation is propped up by ultra-low interest rates, continued government deficit spending, and Quantitative Easing.
In a finite world, debt growth cannot continue indefinitely.
But if debt growth permanently stops, and switches to contraction, we would end up in an even worse financial mess than in 2008.

Beach Villa Brazil
Figure 2. World crude oil production and Brent oil prices, based on monthly EIA data, with different scale for oil production.

If we look at world oil production and price between January 1998 and July 2008, we see that as long as oil demand stayed below 71 million barrels a day, oil price stayed low ( MHIP : mostly aournd 20 USD ).

But once demand started to push above that level, oil price started to rise rapidly, with little increase in production ( the little rise is the problem and points to peak oil wether it is peak cheap oil, peak conventional oil or economic peak oil ).
It was as if a brick wall on oil supply had been hit.
It looked as though non-OPEC had hit “peak oil” production.
Geological limits appeared to have the upper hand.
it was ultimately a financial limit that was reached that eventually worked its way to the credit markets.
Once the credit markets were affected, individuals and businesses were not able to borrow as much, and it was this lack of credit that cut back demand for many types of products, including oil.

The combination of high oil prices and higher interest rates led to falling housing prices starting in 2006 (big oops for the Federal Reserve), and debt defaults, particularly among the most vulnerable ( those with sub-price mortgages ).
As early as 2007, large banks had large debt write-offs, lowering their appetite for more debt of questionable quality.
The Federal Government tried to fix the situation by running larger deficits
Oil prices rose again starting in 2009 as demand outside the US, Europe, and Japan continued to grow.
By 2011, high oil prices were back.

The economies of US, Europe and Japan did not bounce back to the kind of economic growth most expected, because at high oil prices, their products were not competitive in a world marketplace that relied on an energy mix that was slanted more toward coal (which is cheaper), and also offered lower wages
In 2013, world oil supply is still constrained.
Production from existing sites is constantly depleting.
Part of the problem is that the cost of new capacity keeps escalating.
Government debt helps take the place of “missing” debt from other sectors (at least in theory).
Now government debt is above acceptable levels.
Without rapid economic growth, only a small portion of the debt that remains can be repaid.
If increases in taxes/cutback in benefits leave more without work,  a new round of debt defaults can be expected.

Banks may again have financial problems, especially if they have exposure to debt from other countries,
If the interest rate rises, there will be a huge problem, because suddenly loans of all types will have higher interest rates.
Governments will need higher taxes yet, to pay their debts.
It will be hard to sell cars with higher interest rates on debt.
Home prices will likely drop, because fewer people can afford to buy homes with higher interest rates.
What is Ahead?
Lower oil prices indicate that demand is declining. (The cost of extraction is not lower!)
Lower oil demand seems to be related to poorer earnings ...

Nothing will necessarily happen quickly, but by next quarter’s earnings reports, some of the “sequester” cuts will be added to the cuts.
Businesses with poor earnings are likely to lay off workers, and those workers will file for unemployment benefits.
Gradually, we will see increasing evidence of recession.
Oil supply may not drop very much, very quickly ( MHIP : as a result of the declining in demand caused by recession ).
But with all of the debt problems around the world, it is possible that a contagion will begin, and defaults in one country will spread to other countries.
This is what is truly frightening.

Agricultural effects and population limits ( detail out of Food security )
Since supplies of oil and gas are essential to modern agriculture techniques, a fall in global oil supplies could cause spiking food prices and unprecedented famine in the coming decades.

Geologist Dale Allen Pfeiffer contends that current population levels are unsustainable, and that to achieve a sustainable economy and avert disaster the United States population would have to be reduced by at least one-third, and world population by two-thirds.

The largest consumer of fossil fuels in modern agriculture is ammonia production ( for fertilizer ) via the Haber process, which is essential to high-yielding intensive agriculture.
The specific fossil fuel input to fertilizer production is primarily natural gas, to provide hydrogen via steam reforming.

Given sufficient supplies of renewable electricity, hydrogen can be generated without fossil fuels using methods such as electrolysis.

Global water crisis
Water deficits, which are already spurring heavy grain imports in numerous smaller countries, may soon do the same in larger countries, such as China or India.
The water tables are falling in scores of countries ( including northern China, the US, and India ) due to widespread overpumping using powerful diesel and electric pumps.

Other countries affected include Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran.
This will eventually lead to water scarcity and cutbacks in grain harvest.
Even with the overpumping of its aquifers, China is developing a grain deficit.
When this happens, it will almost certainly drive grain prices upward.

Most of the 3 billion people projected to be born worldwide by mid-century will be born in countries already experiencing water shortages.
After China and India, there is a second tier of smaller countries with large water deficits – Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Mexico, and Pakistan.
Four of these already import a large share of their grain.

MHIP Safe Haven : make use of our off-site private allotment gardens for high-quality food

On request new Owners can make use of our off-site private gardens ( allotment gardens ) to organically grow crops ( organic gardening ) for own use ( or other owners ) and on request also small off-site plots to raise organic ( yarding ) free-range chickens.

Ideal for those who wish to keep or restore health through eating quality foods or improve Diet Quality and Micronutrient Nutrition.

Ideal to grow : salad, tomatoes, onions, garlic, lemon, pineapple, papaya, avocado, passion fruit, chu chu, banana, mango, herbs for medicinal teas and many more.

We will provide necessary logistics as access, water and electricity at the allotment gardens as well as all basic materials and tools you will need to grow your crops.

Including seeds and plants of healthy or interesting vegetables, herbs, fruits, trees .... including the ones used for medicinal purposes.

Flora shops provide professional services and advice.

We do not see the allotement gardens as a necessity to be a safe haven as we are confident that Rio Grande do Norte, the NE of Brazil as well as the whole of Brazil will not suffer food shortages,
not now and not in the case of very severe global recession or other calamities.

Rio Grande do Norte and Brazil have abundant land, water, nutrients, energy and logistics to feed other countries including China.

We are confident that Brazil has the highest food-security off all countries in the world.

Safe Haven : in our off-site solar- and wind energy projekt unsubsidized grid parity is already achieved.
There is no need to buy time.
The time and window to protect and secure you and your family a life is now.

Recession-Proof Your Life & make the securest investment !

Look for recession resistant economic activities AND countries ( like Brazil ) ( or if not possible diversify your existing investments ) ,
Own a sustainable property for living ( that offers quality of life and lifestyle and possibly income directly or indirectly ),
Choose a project and type of villa that does not require heating or cooling for comfort and health ( micro climate ),
If possible choose a Net Zero Energy or Energy Plus Building ( ZEB ),
Look to invest as direct as possible in sustainable activities like alternative energy ( Solar or wind ) and / or sustainable rental formula ( Vacation rental in a sustainable project and sustainable region ) and / or a sustainable form of agriculture,
Choose a region and project that has potential for and has logistics for EV ( electrical vehicles preferably with extended range ),
Choose for a healthy life ( Wellness ) because getting ill also will cost you a lot of money,
and try to reduce costs ( avoid air-conditioning by choosing our much more healthy & comfortable cross ventilation, avoid heating or sanitation of pool other than solar ).

By smart investing and wealth generation in Myhouseinparadise you do all these at the same time.

The Myhouseinparadise project features ( and sustainably maintains ) an excellent and optimal lifestyle even during times of recession or depression.

For the same reason it has a very good potential for recession resistant rental income ( as well as many other related and unrelated forms of income ) ( new international airport = hub and portal of Brazil ).

The Northeast of Brazil and the Litoral Norte of Natal is the Miami or sunshine state of Brazil ( and all the other Latin American countries ).

As a matter of fact Brazil has only really started booming shortly after most of the world went in recession ( and many other countries are still in recession or at the brink of going there again or even further down ).

There is at least two reasons for that.
Brazil itself, with it huge often unexplored reserves especially of sustainable energy and agriculture, is extremely recession resistant.

Another ( diversifying ) income for you can come from installing solar panels on your roof or solarium or in your garden or by participating in our off-site solar and wind farms ( Solar ).

Our villas can be specially designed for solar without it being visible and without any discomfort.
The same solar panel produces at least 5 times more energy here than let us say in Germany.

You can manage your solar panels yourself just by connecting to the grid ( any extra energy will be sold to the utility or to other private consumers ) or we can manage this for you ( one more possibility of our rental management ).

Brazil, being one of the biggest producers and electricity consumers of the world, generates over 90 % of its electricity by water or wind ( not by petroleum or other fossil fuels ).
One of its very important economic activities is the production of food ( recession resistant ) and production of sustainable energy ( electricity, and bio fuels like ethanol and biodiesel and wind energy which is quickly expanding because of the huge potential, heavy international private investments and most of all ideal conditions ).

Every time more real economics will matter which country will do well ( richest most sustainable reserves, sustainability, security, young and dynamic population, economy of scale, ... )

Money and investments will shift to where the real economics are present, secure and sustained.
Economic activity will follow the non speculative money and smar people.

Brazil is one of the biggest food and ethanol producers of the world that is growing in a sustainable way.

The food sector grows at the incredible pace of 13 % ( while most others countries decline ) ( bio fuel production is growing at an even more incredible pace of over 30 % ).

Even the flux of international tourists ( including those from countries in crisis ) grew by 14.33 % ( at the same time those international tourists spend 33,11% more than the year before )
Many of them looking for future investment and business ( 25 % of international passengers are here for business and or to make direct investments ).

Let us also not forget that in times of crisis in the past centuries large populations from European countries and Japan emigrated to Brazil and now they and or there descendants live mostly wealthy lives being totally voluntarily integrated Brazilians not any more speaking their native languages ( some of them became president ).

Brazil’s burgeoning middle class in the country has been taking to the air in ever increasing numbers with the North East including Natal their main vacation and retirement living destination and place of investment ( being the Miami or sunshine state of Brazil or even the sustainable California of Brazil ).

( Brazilians outnumbered all other international travelers to Florida in 2011, up 41% from the previous year, according to state tourism officials.
And there's no sign of this Brazilian invasion slowing down: The U.S. Commerce Department projects 1.5 million Brazilians will visit the United States in 2012 )

The number of internal flights has risen by 80 million in the past five years and the same increase is predicted by 2014.

Consequently the tourism sector and or potential is booming.

The second and new Natal international airport will be one of the biggest of the world and is heavily promoted and subsidized by the Brazilian Government
( seen as the best and most efficient way to solve their lack of capacity in the light of heavily increased demand and seen as one of the most important tourist destinations ).

Many large investors wanted to step in for the auction for the management of the new airport and were prepared to pay much more than the demanded amount.
The winner of the auction paid more than 3 times the requested amount to win the bid.

Invest in the hotspot of the next decennia.
Protect yourself against recession.
Secure lifestyle and quality of life.

Secure your health and your life savings.

Europe is at growing risk of mass capital flight amid fears EU regulators would apply the Cyprus model of taxing deposits to rescue eurozone economies, economists said Friday.

EU leaders in Luxembourg said applying the Cypriot "bail-in" model of levying bank deposits to other eurozone countries in difficulty could lead to a flight of investors from Europe, Germany's Der Spiegel said.

Just an example to see the severity ( source MHIP ).

Suppose in Italy, France and Spain 60 million persons ( 20 million per country ) with money on the bank decide to go for a bank run.

When like in italy the amount one is allowed to withdraw and spend cash is limited to 1000 Euro each of the bank runners would have to make 10 successful bank runs a year to withdraw the amount of money that is actually drawn out.

Typical for a bank run is that they are not very successful.
And certainly not if it was to withdraw the enourmous amounts that were withdrawn now for more than a year in a row ( and increasing )

So what is happening ( without being recognized as a bank run ) is much much more severe than any other bank run in history.

Such a withdrawel will bleed to death in a short period of time any very strong economy ( stand alone already frail ones or worse a group of frail ones ).

Europe is bleeding to death !

With far over 600 billion a year being withdrawn from banks in Italy Spain and France, Europe's financial system is doomed.
This amount of redrawel is nothing else than a real and devastating bank run ( but without rows of people in front of closed banks ).

And please remember, nothing really wrong happened in Euro or the world
( no big economy had to be bailed out and no country at all has left the euro and all governements are still united ).

600 billion for just 3 European economies is more money leaving the European financial system than the US ( still the first economy by far ) needed to stimulate its economy with a 700 billion stimulus plan ( spread over 2 years ).
And that stimulus plan (QE1) was ment to be a one time rescue package
( it was historical and fading all other rescue packages of all our history ).

The following graphic, drawn from the International Monetary Fund's latest Global Financial Stability Report, tells it all.
What it shows is the now extreme flight of foreign capital from Spain and Italy.
The graph only goes up to the end of January 2012, but we know that the phenomenon has got, much, much worse since then.

The banks will be protected first and at all cost by the ones in command.
The best case will at some point cause massive devaluation ( by QE and or currency wars, needed badly to avoid total collapse of economies and employment and social unrest ).
Even in the best case a staggering inflation will follow soon.
That means the real value of your liquid assets will evaporate very quickly.

At some point assets in the bank ( or part of it ) could be frozen or blocked.

This Credit Suisse graphic (below) tells much the same story.
Anyone who can has been getting their money out.
Likewise, any foreign company doing business in Spain and Italy removes the money as soon as they get paid, driven both by concern over the safety of the domestic banking system and the possibility that these countries might end up leaving the euro.
This has been pretty much one way traffic.

The euro graph of doom
July 17th, 2012


The scale of Rajoy's challenge was highlighted on Tuesday when figures showed that capital flight from Spain accelerated in May, the month when Madrid was forced to nationalise the fourth biggest lender, Bankia, and before euro zone countries agreed to help bail out Spanish banks.
Net outflows, excluding central bank operations, rose to 41.3 billion euros in May from 26.6 billion euros in April, the Bank of Spain said.
Capital outflows in the first five months of this year totalled 163.2 billion euros - equivalent to about 16 percent of economic output.

The same period last year saw a net inflow of 14.6 billion euros.
Spanish retail sales fell by 5.2 percent year-on-year on a calendar-adjusted basis in June, separate data showed, marking a 24th straight month of declines.
Spain also holds the region's highest unemployment rate in the bloc at 24.8 percent.
Eurostat, the EU statistics office, said another 123,000 people were out of work in the euro zone in June, putting the overall unemployment rate at 11.2 percent of the working population, a new euro-era high.

Near-bankrupt Greece meanwhile reported that it is fast running out of cash as it awaits the next instalment of aid from international lenders.
Deputy Finance Minister Christos Staikouras said that in the absence of 3.2 billion euros needed to repay an ECB bond on August 20, Athens would lack the money to pay everyday public expenses ranging from police and other public service wages to pensions and welfare benefits."
Cash reserves are almost zero," he told state NET television.
"it is risk to say until when (they will last) ... but we are certainly on the brink."

Global appetite ( food )
While Singapore may seem like an extreme example, many experts are predicting that other countries could eventually face a similar set of problems;
an inability to produce the food needed to feed their growing populations, and a heavy dependence on imported goods.

According to the United Nation's Food and Agriculture Organization, global food consumption has exceeded the amount grown in six of the past 11 years.

One of the main causes has been severe weather patterns that have damaged harvests and limited global production.

Earlier this year, the US was hit by its worst drought in more than half a century, while major growers in Russia and the Black Sea region were forced to cut their production forecasts following a heat wave.

As a result, overall global food prices rose by 1.4% in September, following a steep 6% rise in July.

''The supply for food is very unpredictable. Demand is more or less stable,'' says Lynette Tan, an analyst from Phillip Futures.
''Disruptions can happen at any time due to the weather.''

At the same time, analysts say that too many countries have failed to improve the efficiency of their food production and supply chains.

Food shocks

The problem for policymakers is that rising food prices often result in social unrest.

During the last food crisis in 2008, riots broke out across North Africa and the Middle East after staples such as bread became too expensive to purchase.
The poor people in Asian economies are likely to be hurt the most by a rise in global food prices

In India last year there were large street protests after the cost of red onions, used widely in cooked and raw dishes, quadrupled and sent the prices of other vegetables surging.

This sort of outbreak is prompting countries such as China, the world's second-biggest economy and home to many of the new consumers who are buying up global supplies of meat and grains, to step up their attempts to secure long-term food supplies.

China has been making record purchases of soybean, a key ingredient in the Chinese diet, to add to their reserve stock piles.
It has also been looking to buy up vast tracts of farmland in countries such as Australia and New Zealand, often with limited success.

For the moment, China and other relatively wealthy countries such as Singapore are able to pay a premium for food that is imported or grown on their behalf in foreign fields.

The worry for organisations such as the Earth Policy Institute in Washington DC is that should nations fail to plan well enough for their food futures, then there will be an increased risk of clashes over crops and livestock.

"Each country is in a position where it needs to protect its own food security," says Janet Larsen, director of research at the Earth Policy institute.
"There's no reason why they won't move into an every country for itself mode."
