The New Global Oil Market: Understanding Energy Issues in the World Economy

Introduction

Siamack Shojai

As a student of oil markets since the 1970s, I have been overwhelmed by the abundance of material published about oil. However, the joy of having access to ample resources has been tainted by the dispersion of the material. To address this need, I have edited this comprehensive, succinct, and authoritative volume on global oil markets.

This volume includes chapters on technical features, pricing and marketing, political economy, environmental issues, national security, and public policy choices and debates in global oil markets. A major and diverse undertaking such as this was felt to require the expertise and experience of a diverse group of scholars to come to a successful conclusion. I have been fortunate and honored to have over 25 experts in the field join me to accomplish this task. We believe that the contents of this book are of compelling interest to both the professional and the academic community.

In Chapter 1, Frank W. Millerd examines proven global oil reserves. He provides a thorough discussion of the meaning of proven reserves, methods of estimating reserves, the geographical distribution of global oil reserves, unconventional oil reserves, and reasons for revising reserve estimates. He concludes that concerns about oil scarcity are not warranted.

An informing overview of current, past, and possible future global and regional oil production is presented by Dr. Millerd in Chapter 2. He highlights the significance of Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), especially the Middle Eastern oil producers, in global oil markets.

In Chapter 3, Edward T. Dowling and Francis G. Hilton analyze how the rise and retreat of self-sufficiency imperatives affected the demand for oil in the past and how future global energy consumption could be restructured by environmental imperatives.
