no poison, but different studies show that because of the very low porosity of rocks, only between 1 and 3% is technically recoverable.

High estimates today estimate a maximum recoverable potential of 4.3 billion barrels but more probably around 2 billion or about .....

And even if the 100 billion were exploitable!

At 85 M barrels per day, we would have: 100 / 0.085 = 1200 days, a little more than 3 years and 2 months ...

Nothing to cheer about ...

Strongly that we know how to exploit methane hydrates : Mrgreen:

look at this and you will end up being convinced although everything that we can find will not change anything on the peak-oil which is probably already crossed (thank you the crisis to temporarily prevent it from becoming frankly catastrophic) : Idea:
