Korpela, Seppo A (2006) Oil depletion in the world. In: Current Science, 91 (9). pp. 1148-1152.
Concern over inadequate oil supply has been in the news lately. In this article the basis for concern over future supply is discussed by analysing future production prospects using a model based on the logistic equation and past production data. The aim of the article is to make the use of the model transparent and to broadcast the result that, based on this method, peak oil production in the world is likely by the end of this decade.
