One of the world’s largest oilfields is Kashagan in Kazakhstan. When this 13 billion barrel field was discovered in the year 2000 there were production projections of 2 million barrels per day, i.e. equivalent to that of Prudhoe Bay in Alaska. Production difficulties have been enormous and they currently estimate that an oil price of […]

News is spreading around the world that Rosneft and ExxonMobil have been successful in their joint effort to find oil in the Kara Sea up in the Arctic. Personally, I am doubtful that we should produce this oil but now that the oil appears to exist there we must place it in our global energy […]

Today the Scots decide whether or not they will leave the UK to become an independent nation. A decisive factor is that they feel robbed of oil income. If one continues the border between Scotland and England straight out into the North Sea then about 90% of the UK’s discovered oil is in what would […]

Sweden will now change its government and for Aleklett’s Energy Mix, with its focus on energy, the question is what change we can expect regarding Sweden’s energy policy.

Globalt perspektiv saknas i den svenska valdebatten

partier

(Not in English) Den svenska valdebatten saknar de viktigaste internationella frågorna för vår framtid. Man diskuterar visserligen krigen i Mellanöstern och Ukraina som medför att flyktingströmmen till Sverige ökar. Flyktingpolitik och försvarspolitik var de enda internationella frågorna som diskuterades. Användning av energi och energianvändningens betydelse för vår välfärd och vårt klimat saknas. I går morse […]
