According to the latest BP Statistical Review of World Energy, total global reserves, by fossil fuel, are now: 

Coal - 1,139 billion tonnes

Natural Gas - 187 trillion cubic meters

Crude Oil - 1,707 billion barrels

While these volumes may seem large at a glance, at today's level of extraction and production rates, BP's estimated proved reserves*, by fossil fuel, would be exhausted as follows:

Coal - year 2169

Natural Gas - year 2068

Crude Oil - year 2066

BP dutifully acknowledges the abundance of factors that could easily alter these projections, but these factors do not alter the global policy imperitive to support sustainable fossil fuel extraction and development. All we need now is to define "sustainable" against ever changing market, political, and social conditions. 

*  Estimated years of extraction-remaining are estimated as the ratio of proved reserves to production per year.

Coal Prices Forecast: Long Term, 2018 to 2030 | Data and Charts

Since January 2016, when the price of coal reached a 10-year low, coal prices have rebounded by about 100 percent. Several factors have contributed to this price rebound. First, as part of China's effort to reduce harmful emissions the world's largest coal consumer and producer, reduced its domestic production and increased its imports. Second, the Indian coal industry faced hard times as miner strikes led to a crisis within the domestic industry, sending coal prices soaring. Leading international agencies have contributed contrasting perspectives on the future of coal...

BP Energy Outlook to 2040

The BP Energy Outlook evaluates different aspects of the energy transition and highlights key issues and uncertainties of the transition. In all the scenarios considered, world GDP more than doubles by 2040, driven by increasing prosperity in fast-growing developing economies. In the 'evolving transition' scenario this improvement in living standards causes energy demand to increase by around a third over the outlook period, driven by India, China, and 'Other Asia,' which together account for two-thirds of the increase. Despite this increase in energy demand, around two-thirds of...

India's Infrastructure Output Contracted 5.2 Percent in September 2019

The output of India’s core infrastructure industries contracted 5.2 percent YoY in September compared to a revised 0.1 percent growth in August 2019, reflecting weakness industrial production and domestic demand. The index of core industries that includes eight industries was largely dragged down by coal and petroleum refinery products. The core index that accounts more than 40 percent weight in Index of Industrial Production (IIP) suggests that the contraction could have a bearing on upcoming IIP figure for September. The significant contraction in the core industries adds to...
