under threat? How could a new international accord on

World Energy Outlook 2008
answers these and other burning questions.
draws on the experience o another turbulent year in energy markets toprovide new
energy projections to 2030
, region by region and uel by uel. It incorporates the latest data and policies.
ocuses on two
pressing issues acing the energy sector
Prospects for oil and gas production
: How much oil and gas exists and how muchcan be produced? Will investment be adequate? Through
o production trends at 800 o the world’s largest oilfelds, an assessment o thepotential or fnding and developing new
and a bottom-up analysis o upstream
takes a hard look at uture global oiland gas supply.
Post-2012 climate scenarios
: What emissions limits might emerge rom current international negotiations on climate change? What role could
play in moving to a low-carbon energy uture? Two dierent scenarios are assessed, one in which the atmospheric concentration o emissions isstabilised at 550 parts per million (ppm) in CO
equivalent terms and the secondat the still more ambitious level o 450 ppm. The implications or energy demand,prices, investment, air pollution and energy security are ully spelt out. This ground-breaking analysis will enable policy makers to
distill the key choices
as they striveto agree in Copenhagen in 2009 on a
post-Kyoto climate ramework
.With extensive data, detailed projections and in-depth analysis,
providesinvaluable insights into the prospects or the global energy market and what they meanor climate change.
