    The graph is misleading. At some point on the graph the cost to produce oil flattens and stays fairly flat. Well before the cost begins to go up exponentially the producer stops increasing production.

    There's a distinct difference between average and marginal costs which you completly ignored. Oil production will increase till marginal costs equate price not when average cost does

    weve gotten millions of tonnes of water around every single major city nearly for thousands of years with no oil. and not one person thought.. "wait a minute.. why we need oil?" while we collude with them, solar/wind companies, and courts by pretending we dont see them happily blocking out the sun with more smog, and now silver iodide etc( not hidden anymore, allll over the world spraying it daily). thats tangible legal proof in the form of dollar value lost due to them. and no one sues/wins? hmm :p we're complicit by choice, try counting the death toll. choiceful ignorance.

    No mentioning of how the oil drilling spot is first prepared by another mobile rig, before the stationary one that actually extracts oil is put into place. Also no mentioning of what is installed at the sea floor, which is at least as important as the stuff above. So a little bit on the light side of technical details.

    It's quite an interesting video to theorise about. Like, what if an agreement cannot be reached between the Saudis and Russians? What if the demand for oil doesn't increase substantially as a response to the end of the pandemic? Particularly that second point is worth thinking about. Many companies have found that worker productivity and mental health has not taken a hit during the pandemic (talking very generally here), so is there really a need for workers to use petroleum to get in their cars? If, say for instance in person meetings are a necessity once or twice a week, that's still a reduced number of workers actually needed physically in the office.

    Your video is hugely misinformed. First, you never mentioned HOW a rig works. RIGS do not turn profits, unless there is a drilling RIG on board a production platform. Production turns the profit. We do have recreation time out here and most platforms have gyms, billiards, darts, large TV rooms, and galleys. We do work 14/14 or 21/21 shifts, and most of the time you do not work the entire 12 hours. Aberdeen is nice, but look into Fourchon and you'll have a nice surprise on ports and heliports. This video was really hard to watch if you actually work out here.

    As the early days of the COVID-19 crisis hastened the failure of the already floundering U.S. oil and gas industry, pandemic relief mechanisms like the Paycheck Protection Program intended to help small businesses were inordinately used to bail out big oil companies, says energy reporter Antonia Juhasz. In her research, Juhasz found that as much as $7 billion in PPP money went to oil and gas companies. But most problematic, she says, was the move to transfer oil company debt to the Federal Reserve through the investment company BlackRock. "Through BlackRock, you and I - the American taxpayer - are now owners in debt, through the Fed, of Exxon, Chevron, of Energy Transfer Partners, Phillips 66," says Juhasz. Instead, "we need to allow this industry to do what it would be doing on its own anyway, which is going away, because the world is trying - and succeeding - in moving away from this resource."

    A nurse once told me that you should never watch shows about your own profession. Now i understand. BTW "Rigs" and "Platforms" are totally different things that they got totally confused about.

    Another correction: The office people think they make the decisions, but we do what we want because they don't always know what is going on. Uninformed decisions by office folk can cause accidents, that is exactly what caused the Macondo situation.

    Correction: Offshore oil platforms are almost never located above oil wells, they are placed in the middle of an area with multiple wells as far as 100 miles away. Also, as those wells are depleted new ones are added.

      @Highping1 I am currently on West Delta 73 in the gulf of mexico, and we have multiple wells ON our facility, including a few duel string wells. Most companies on the shelf over here do not have subsea wells.

      @Robert Martin I have never heard of wells above the waterline except in swamps. Are you trolling? If not, please give an example of an offshore platform with wells above the water line. I was on Shenzi for a while and it had the capacity for 100 wells.

      Nope we are located above zones. you might be refereing to subsea wells, but there are wells above the water line too. In fact we have 18 flowing wells on my platform alone.
