Declining Oil Exports

Available Exports, Worse than 1973 Oil Embargo

Most of the world's major economies are importers. World Oil Exports measure energy available to drive economies:

  • 2005 were 46.342 mbpd
  • 2006 were 45.838 mbpd, down 1.10%, 504 mbpd or 184 million barrels below 2005
  • 2007 were 44.832 mbpd, down 2.24%, 1,509.7 mbpd or 551 million barrels below 2005
  • 2008 looks like 43.8 mbpd, looking like a drop of at least 8% per year after 2010.


  • 735 million barrels deficit in 2006-2007 and growing
  • 604 million barrels deficit (about) was caused by the 1973 Oil Embargo

Efficiency must gain at least three times per year to counter oil price / supply decrease per year; fortunately that is possible. PRT and Advanced Renewable Tariffs are a start in the process of changing the lifeblood of our economy from oil to ingenuity.
