At over 82 millions barrels per day x 159 liter/barrel / 1000 for m3.
Knowing that the earth crust is less than 30 km in thickness (nothing was drill past 12 km), after 100,000 years, you will have eaten a big big chunk of the earth crust (in volume).
Unless you believe that the center of the earth is like a big nuggat full of oil.
It just doesn't add up.
interesting theory. but do you have any links or the name of the publication or anything? i'd like to read this myself.

You must understand that the statement you made-enough oil for 50K years, is very different from what we have heard.
Do to this fact, most everyone on this board would like some proof of this statement.
We here at ATS are an openj minded group-for the most part- but not a group who blindly accepts what anyone says-w/o proof.

Hey, Came across an interesting article at my school library. It was about world oil supply. The author claimed there is enough oil below the ocean floor to meet current consumption levels for 50,000 years. He said the problem is not whether we will run out of oil, but whether technology could catch up in time to access all this oil which is extremely deep below the ocean before our land fields run dry. I thought this was fascinating. If we could tap into this resource we will never have to worry about oil running dry. 50 000 years . . That's crazy. He also went on to discuss that Kuwait is running dry in oil, Saudi Arabia has a "Half a Cup Of Oil" left and that the middle east is lying about it's true oil supply. Anyway thought this was pretty interesting stuff, and wanted to share. Cayoo

Well, actually, I don't find the concept of having enough oil for our needs being available for centuries to come outlandish.
