A Sobering Look At The Future Of Oil
But there is something terribly wrong with how the world regards the future of the oil business. Whether the world decides to stay in or get out of the oil business; governments, regulators and opponents must learn to read an income statement and balance sheet before dispensing any further advice on how the petroleum industry conducts itself. This industry supplied the energy mankind demanded for generations and paid as much in taxes and royalties as governments could extract. Often governments took too much then had to give some back to keep the lights on.
Now it is being asked to do much more with much less and perhaps, if the greens get their way, nothing at all.

Oil industry's sunset years: low prices, weak demand, poor outlook
