If one is to believe the CIA factbook, the known oil reserves in Russia would cover the present level of extraction for 20 more years [not all can be extracted, but then some more reserves could be found - so these probably balance themselves out].==
Yeah if we beleive CIA factbook:). If not then we may find some more information.
For example. The proposed pipelines (accually its 2 not 1) will be drawn from East Sibirian gas fields. EAST not West Sibirian! Did you notice?
What does it mean? I never heard that CIA factbook mentioned East Sibirian gas or oil fields:).
You need (first) to lay off vodka, or at least start drinking less, and (second) to take a class in reading comprehension. Oil and gas were tabulated separately. The gas numbers were about 70-80 years.
