Most Cautiously Posted Charts – But TOO Interesting NOT to post – Worlds Biggest Oil Reserves all in One Chart AND Renewable’s Chase for Replacement

With a lot of followers/clients being Oil Experts due to long careers in the Oil Industry (For the record we find the industry wildly interesting!) we are welcoming the feedback as we make the following charts and stats available….

We did not make the chart, our friends at Howmuch.com and the World CIA Facebook (an interesting resource topic for another discussion) are the creators of this one:

Oil Reserves by Chart Size

Here are the actual statistics in legend format –

Rank Country Oil Reserves (Barrels)
#1 🇻🇪 Venezuela 300.9 billion
#2 🇸🇦 Saudi Arabia 266.5 billion
#3 🇨🇦 Canada 169.7 billion
#4 🇮🇷 Iran 158.4 billion
#5 🇮🇶 Iraq 142.5 billion
#6 🇰🇼 Kuwait 101.5 billion
#7 🇦🇪 United Arab Emirates 97.8 billion

#11 🇺🇸 United States 36.5 billion
#12 🇰🇿 Kazakhstan 30.0 billion
#13 🇨🇳 China 25.6 billion
#14 🇶🇦 Qatar 25.2 billion
#15 🇧🇷 Brazil 12.7 billion

 

Interesting comments – read between the lines on long term Oil usage…

“There’s little doubt that renewable energy sources will play a strategic role in powering the global economy of the future.
But for now, crude oil is still the undisputed heavyweight champion of the energy world.
In 2018, we consumed more oil than any prior year in history – about 99.3 million barrels per day on a global basis. This number is projected to rise again in 2019 to 100.8 million barrels per day.”

This from an interesting chart, at Visual Capitalist

While headlines as recent as five years ago predicted the end of oil reserves from depletion, the belief now by the smart folks, is that we will move from Oil to renewable long before we run out of oil, making for very interesting company pivots in the future.

Could an insert your favorite energy company be the leader in some type of renewable energy resource?  Not beyond the realm of a reasonable doubt if their long term viability is dependent!

Things we are constantly thinking of for opportunities and loss avoidance!

Hat tip JP!

Have a Great “Energy Informed” Day!

Computer Problems Lead to Dark Web Discussion with IT folks – Visual Capitalist Educational Chart

Late last week Donald “The Brain’s” computer froze and gave a warning “CPU Fan not found” – let the dominoes begin falling..

It’s tax season, the busiest of the year – Immediate new box ordered – hurry, hurry –

Must get a proprietary program running on another machine as a back up – daily downloads needed –

Darn program will not work!

Multiple days and two consecutive hours later (not looking forward to that bill) with our tech folks, while at a paused moment, a question of the Dark Web occurred – while no place to hang out or EVER go, their response gave us comfort in showing this graph, which we had held off for some time.

If YOU REALLY WANT TO SEE SOMETHING SCARY – google Youtube dark web – some crazy stuff there!

From our cool friends at Visual Capitalist:

Again, never, ever go to the dark web or you are asking for it!

Neat Chart of each USA State’s Largest Private Employer – Care to guess who dominates? Short Video too!

In this interesting chart by our friends at Visual Capitalist, the 1.5 million workers that call Walmart home, show just how large their company’s foot print is as the dominant employer.

If you think about it, this is logical, due to the massive amount of products Walmart moves daily in all sorts of areas of our lives!

What may surprise you (or not) is the massive amount of health care companies that dominate many of the other states – Aging Population = Health Care needs.

Next, the University/Education – happily this is the third most dominant employer, as the future of our country can be dependent on higher education.

Timely G-20/Tariff Meeting Chart – World GDP

It appears the Tariff talks continue to go on…

We are personally surprised as we thought much of this was posturing and there would be an agreement sooner rather than later …

This weekend at the G-20 meeting (here is a cool live China site on the matter) there is hope to finally settle the Tariff concerns…

Will see – if they do, market participants may likely sound a sigh of relief… and visa versa …

Our Friends at Visual Capitalist/How Much.com are out with a neat chart to keep the matters in perspective..
