Unable to become more effective

Christophe de Margerie, Head Total, does not believe that the world will ever be able to extract more than 89 million. barrels of oil a day, a marginal increase from levels around 84 million. barrels today. The background is high production costs and political problems in oil rich countries like Iraq and Iran.

Crisis influences the demand

Financial Times says that Total has revised its estimates down to the minimum 4 million. barrels of oil a day by 2015 because of the economic crisis and the decline in oil prices. Simultaneously, investments in the oil sector being hit hard by a slight approach to liquidity.

Long term demand
