Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I think it would have even more impact were the "to be developed or found" category were a much paler shade of blue -- like the northern sky at midday in an Arizona summer.

The garish top two bands are precisely in Coyote colour territory. The blues need changing to reds or browns. The 'to be found' area could also be a gradiented process yellow (darker at the bottom)

Can we remove the thick blue line?

We can, but it represent total oil.

I know, but it makes it look like a solid platform that Oil E. Coyote is running on, not thin air.

However, there is not enough resolution in the original picture to pull out the line. The graph could be totally reconstructed as a vector file, but it would take a  little bit of time - that I don't have at the moment. But remind me over the weekend.

You might take a look at inkscape (and trace bitmap action). :)

Can you just change the line colour to match the Natural gas liquids band?

If I can't isolate the line, then I can't change it.

Don't you have a colour fill opinion? As far as I can see, that black line is separate from other blacks (and even if it isn't, you could separate it by drawing a small separator line manually).

Or reduce the line weight to the thinnest available.

Loverly. Now just change the total crude oil line to sky blue to match the blue sky dreaming fantasy, and its perfect.
