Iraq… the oil sands… and the gas glut

I’m busy. In addition to editing the ever-expanding Petroleum Economist and its excellent new channel on unconventional energy (called, imaginatively enough, PE Unconventional), I’ve four major writing projects on the go.

  • A long piece for The Economist on the tar sands (or oil sands, if you prefer)
  • An in-depth look, for Petroleum Economist, at Iraq’s ambitions as an oil producer
  • Another take on the global gas glut, also for Petroleum Economist
  • And my book on oil addiction and the decline of the West

The last of these is a weekend and weekday 5am-7am project. The early starts are the only hours I can find when my children aren’t commanding space, time, and energy. (**I’m not complaining. Frankly, they’re more interesting.**)

The usual requests: if anyone wishes to contact me about stories, you know where to find me.
