  1. Still no decline in oil production


    July 30, 2016 by AK

    Last September and October, I wrote about George Soros’ untimely announcement that Russian oil production was in decline. The data links in these posts seem to be working all right, providing updated information. It indicates that the decline has so far failed to begin.
