Professor Kjell Aleklett
the Centre for Asian Studies, the Confucius Institute and the Environment Institute at the University of Adelaide
Thursday, December 9, 2010 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (ACDT)
Professor Kjell Aleklett is in Adelaide and will be presenting the seminar 'Projecting future fuel production - Peak Oil, Peak Coal, Peak Natural Gas, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) emissions scenarios'.
The seminar will be held on the 9th of December 2010 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm in the Benham Lecture theatre, Benham Laboratories, University of Adelaide, North Tce Campus.
Professor Aleklett heads the Global Energy Systems group at Uppsala University in Sweden. His crucial research, published in March, is a critical review of the International Energy Agency's (IEA) forecasts of steady growth in oil production at least until 2030.
In contrast, the Uppsala group has shown, using the same IEA data on existing reserves and expected future discoveries, that global oil production will fall, not rise. This is because the IEA has assumed unrealistically high rates of production from the oilfields remaining to be developed.
