Every oil company in the world will say this. As the price of oil rises, so will production. They will claim oil shortages, with 6 cement pluged zones
in one well. I work in the oilfield, and we are super busy at this moment, but 5 months ago, it was very slow. The oil is there, but oil companies
know how supply and demand work. We could open up everyzone, in every oilwell, and produce billions of barrels a day. Oil would be super cheap, for
awhile. When the formations start to loose pressure, and you need to start using water/steam injection, or pump jacks, cost of production is going to
climb, and the price of oil will spike very sharply.
