Hola

Como se ha puesto intenso el tema del petróleo en el portal de SLB (schlumberger) y cada día publican mas notas relacionadas y pues no da tiempo de traducirlas las voy pegando aquí, Además el portal las cierra después de cierto tiempo y algunas vale la pena conservarlas como archivo histórico.


CIBC Sees Canada Oilsands as Largest New Oil Supply

NEW YORK - As conventional oil reservoirs deplete rapidly around the world, Canada's oilsands will be the biggest contributor to new global supply by the end of the decade, CIBC World Markets predicted, according to a Canadian Press report Tuesday.

And because state-owned firms control a major portion of global daily production, the oilsands provide one of the few remaining growth opportunities for investors, chief economist Jeff Rubin said.

"All of the net increase in oil production this year is expected to come from non-conventional sources," CP quoted Rubin as saying said in a release. "While deepwater oil is the primary source today, we forecast that Canadian oilsands will become the single biggest contributor to incremental global supply by 2010."

The Toronto-based bank said a study of 164 new oil fields and projects around the world shows that the price of oil will continue to rise over the next three years if global demand doesn't wane.

As such, Rubin believes oil prices this year will eclipse last year's record high, reached as major oil and natural gas infrastructure in the Gulf Coast was being pounded by two major hurricanes.

Rubin also predicted that rising oil prices will give energy companies a vast amount of cash in which to invest in large but expensive projects like the oilsands, CP reported.

"Not only is depletion significant, but it is also accelerating, forcing more and more reliance on non-conventional sources of supply, such as Canada's vast but largely undeveloped oilsands," the CP quoted the CIBC release as saying.

The CIBC study says once depletion rates are factored in, global conventional supply "seems to have peaked in 2004."

It said more than 60% of the 3.6 million barrels of new oil production expected to come on stream this year will simply offset depletion from existing fields in such places as the North Sea and Kuwait.

After depletion, new supply is expected to grow by less than 1.5 million barrels per day in the next two years, and by less than 1 million b/d in 2008.

Northern Alberta's oilsands are already the focus of massive amount of development, with about C$100 billion worth of projects planned over the next two decades.

Production is also expected to jump from the current 1 million b/d to upwards of 3 million b/d in the next decade, CP reported.

Hallazgos mas pequeños, costos mas altos dispararan los precios del petróleo.

Smaller Finds, Higher Costs to Boost Oil Prices

LONDON - Harsh and difficult working conditions and shrinking pools of hydrocarbons could boost the cost of finding crude oil by up to 60% a barrel over the next five years, Bernstein energy analysts said Tuesday.

"The marginal cost of supply is rising over time because the average (oil) field size is falling and costs per unit are going up," Bernstein analyst Neil McMahon told investors and analysts in a conference call.

The cost of finding an extra, or marginal, barrel of crude oil is likely to rise to between $60 to $80 a barrel by 2010, McMahon said.

That's up from about $45 to $50 a barrel at the end of 2005, McMahon said after the call.

Echoing other energy analysts, McMahon said that oil companies are having to travel to more distant places, like northern Russia, where winter is long and bitterly cold, and drill deeper into the earth's surface to find oil.

The result is higher development and labor costs and, often times, smaller oil discoveries relative to 20 or 30 years ago, McMahon said.

"There's little hope of replaying the last supply response" of the early 1980s, McMahon said.

During that period, huge oil supplies were found in places like Britain's North Sea and the U.S.'s North Slope in Alaska.

The discoveries followed the oil-supply shocks of the 1970s that were caused by the Organization Of Petroleum Exporting Countries when that group pulled supplies off world markets in retaliation for Western policies.

Analysts have long said that the "easy" oil finds in the world, like in Alaska, have been largely tapped and that the exploration frontiers of the oil industry will push into more hostile territories, both geographically and politically.

David Bamford, an analyst at Windward E&P Consultants, said during the conference call that some areas still exist where big oil finds could be found, despite the increased difficulties facing energy companies today.

Russia remained high on his list of places for future energy supplies - despite Russia's recent spat with Ukraine.

Bamford, who previously held several exploration posts with BP Plc (BP) over a 24-year career, said Russia has 72 billion in "proven" oil reserves and could have another 71 billion in both "probable" and "yet-to-find" oil reserves.

"Russia remains the place to be," he said.

Many energy analysts have cast doubt on Russia's role as a reliable energy exporter after it cut gas supplies to Ukraine on Jan. 1 when Ukraine refused to pay a four-fold rise for Russian gas supplies. The dispute was resolved quickly after the cutoff.

Russia also has the world's biggest natural-gas supplies.

Bamford said the Middle East, with about 60% of the world's proven oil reserves, could have another 100 billion barrels of yet-to-be discovered oil reserves.
