Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Interesting comment, Saudi peaked back in 1980. Simmons wasn't nothing but an ordinary stock market investor back then - without disregarding the work he has done more recently.

As I wrote before, so far there is no evidence supporting Simmons's claims of a second leak, far from the BOP, flowing at 120 Kb/d. Also, given that no well at the GOM as ever produced more than 50 Kb/d, the changes of this being true are really slim.

Yep, they did. But not because of geological constraints. Central banker of the oil market and all that.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
