Oil reserves A map of world oil reserves, 2013. Oil reserves denote the amount of crude oil that can be technically recovered at a cost that is financially feasible at the present price of oil.[1] Hence reserves will change with the price, unlike oil resources, which include all oil that can be technically recovered at any price. Reserves may be for a well, for a reservoir, for a field, for a nation, or for the world. Different classifications of reserves are related to their degree of certainty. The total estimated amount of oil in an oil reservoir, including both producible and non-producible oil, is called oil in place. Based on data from OPEC at the beginning of 2013 the highest proved oil reserves including non-conventional oil deposits are in Venezuela (20% of global reserves), Saudi Arabia (18% of global reserves), Canada (13% of global reserves), and Iran (9%).[3] Classifications[edit] Schematic graph illustrating petroleum volumes and probabilities.

An article in The Economist this week posits that central banks may now be financing governments on a permanent basis. That’s not the basis for QE cited by the central banks! The Economist makes the point that QE “makes democratic leaders less accountable.” The elected officials can keep cranking out trillion (or near-trillion) dollar budgets, driving the national debt ever-higher, with little consequence.
