219. JIM JARRELL'S "ANOTHER DAY IN THE DESERT"
As reported in #139, Jim Jarrell (a petroleum engineer from the Ross Smith Energy Group) has written a hard-nosed critique of Matt Simmons' persistent fearmongering about an imminent collapse in Saudi Arabian oil production. I know a lot of readers find this site by searching for Jarrell's report, but so far the report has only been available to paying customers of the Ross Smith Energy Group. By a stroke of luck, an abridged version of Jarrell's critique can be accessed on the web. It has some withering criticism of Simmons' gaffes and errors regarding reservoir engineering technology.
I don't know how long the report will stay up, but here it is. Follow the link below, and click on the link for "Sample Issue":
