Plotting the Jan 2002 to Present (March 2011) data had an even greater slope, indicating a crossover point in early 2016...

By that I mean build extra storage tanks and pump the oil flat out for one or two days a week or only in the summer.
Under current conditions and without additional well development and a significant increase in oil flow, the data would suggest that the critical date will happen sooner than even this report has suggested. (Which would be when the flow falls below 350 kbd sometime around 2020).
