Interesting Site On Peak Oil

Recommended Posts

It seems the markets are pricing in a future of tight oil supplies. Or to put it another way the markets are starting to take the idea of Peak Oil seriously.

Check out this site and thread:


The prices for delivery of crude oil five years in the future were very stable at around $20 per barrel for most of the history of the NYMEX contract prior to 2003 (I wish I knew how to post a spreadsheet chart that I created that shows this). Since that time, the five-year forward price has gone up fairly steadily to its current level of around $65 per barrel. The market concensus regarding the long-run balance betweeen supply and demand is changing substantially. There is the big story.

This could help to explain why the central banks are all starting to tighten...
