Global Oil Depletion Concerns to be Aired
at International Workshop in Lisbon

Thirty-six experts from 17 countries will take part in a two-day international workshop on oil and gas depletion at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon on 19-20 May 2005.

Amid mounting concerns about rising oil prices and the ability to expand production capacity to meet rampant demand, the speakers will assess the prospects for future oil and gas supplies. They will also address the economic, political and social impacts of global depletion.

Two Board members of The Oil Depletion Analysis Centre (ODAC) will be among the speakers: Colin Campbell on The End of the First Half of the Oil Age, and Chris Skrebowski on The Emerging Reality of Oil and Gas Depletion – Where Reality Meets Theory.

More than 300 people representing a wide range of interests are expected to attend the workshop. They include oil and energy industry leaders, investment analysts, consultants and government officials.

The full programme is available at:

This will be the fourth annual workshop organised by The Association for the Study of Peak Oil (ASPO), a network of European scientists from 14 countries. Previous workshops have been held in Berlin, Paris and Uppsala, Sweden.
