The world s oil reserves are expected to run out by the middle of the next century unless oil consumption is reduced according to a leading petroleum geologist from the U.S Dr. Craig Bond Hatfield who is at the University of Toledo Ohio says the 1 000 billion barrels of known global oil reserves are expected to run out by 2036 unless the current 69-million barrels per day consumption of oil is brought down Reserves may last for an extra 21 years if estimates of an additional 550 billion barrels of oil yet to be discovered ate taken into account.
