Jean Laherrere uses Hubbert linearization to estimate Bakken shale oil peak in 2014

In his latest research on shale oil French oil geologist Jean Laherrere from ASPO France

estimates a Bakken shale oil peak in 2014

He uses a Hubbert linearization to calculate a total of 2,500 mb to be produced

In global terms, a total cumulative of 2.5 Gb is just around 10% of annual crude production and 1.3% of daily production.

Well productivity in Bakken is stagnant at around 130 b/d for a couple of years now.

There has been a peak in the number of drilling rigs. A shift of the rigs curve by 2 years suggests a production peak in 2014.

Jean’s research is in line with that published by David Hughes in November 2013:
