Natural Gas Reserves vs. Oil Reserves

Natural Gas Reserves vs. Oil Reserves

Natural Gas Reserves vs. Oil Reserves

How can I compare world natural gas reserve vs. world oil reserves?  Where can I find this information?
I am writing a presentation and I want to tell my audience that gas reserve will last longer than oil would.

Please help

RE: Natural Gas Reserves vs. Oil Reserves

If you already know the answer - why look at all?

Best regards

RE: Natural Gas Reserves vs. Oil Reserves

The BP world energy statistics (available to download in excell form on the BP website) is regarded as one of the best sources of information about oil and gas production and reserves.  You can show the current reserves of gas and oil and the current global production of both and show that one will outlast the other (with all the usual caveats about proved vs. probable vs. possible reserves; future economic considerations ignored in reserves estimates; assumptions about future demand and production; ignoring non conventional sources of oil and gas and so on).

If you want to you could convert gas to 'barrels of oil equivalent' using the SPE conversion which is based on the energy content of sales gas and typical crude oil:
1 million standard cubic feet (1MMscf) = 176.7barrels oil equivalent (boe)
