Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
First I want to thank you, Plato, for providing such important information.

Secondly, the stormy present says:

But Yemen's proven reserves are only around three billion barrels or less.

...to which you respond that:

...you might want to review the latest data of the oil reserves of Yemen. IMHO you will find that they have more than 3 Billion Barrels of Oil reserves.

My question is how much of this difference might be due to the nomenclature which I discuss in the diary: (ie. the difference between proven oil reserves and the US Geological Survey's broader definition of what constitutes oil reserves - that includes "unconventional" tar sands and oil shale sources?)
