OilFinder2 wrote:As is usual with these Iranian discoveries, it's a bit vague as to whether the amount listed is a recoverable or an OIP figure, but the article uses the word "reserves," and that kinda-sorta sounds more like they're referring to something that will eventually be booked as a recoverable reserve, so I'm putting it in the recoverable category.

Of course the National Iranian OIl Company speaks for the Supreme Leader and President for Life, not the oil industry or citizenry. Your numbers are most certainly fudged and quite meaningless.OilFinder2 wrote:pstarr wrote:Dude, you understand where these numbers come from? I am telling you they are lies.

First of all, this estimate is not coming from Ahmadinejad, but instead is being made by the National Iranian Oil Company. But to answer your question directly ... given the choice between believing Ahmadinejad or believing the peakers - especially peakers like you - I might actually be more inclined to believe Ahmadinejad.

The above statement by pstarr adheres to no rigorous scientific methodology, it was not normalized, published, or peer-reviewed, not to mention respected or perused. Thus, it is irrelevant and is devoid of any real content. Vapid, empty air.

Have you compiled this catalogue into such a graph recently? Looks to me it would be even stronger evidence agaist the old myth ' discoveries peaked in the 1930s '.
