Chevron Corporation (CVX), Schlumberger Limited. (SLB): The 5 Most Energy Abundant Countries

What a Fool believes
There should be one small caveat to these figures: They are from 2011. Since then, the U.S.’ and several other countries’ energy landscapes have been fundamentally changed because of shale gas and tight oil. The total proven reserves for the U.S. are in such flux that the Energy Information Administration hasn’t updated our proven reserve figure in more than two years. As technology advances and we start to understand these new sources, these numbers are going to change. In fact, if technology advances enough, the U.S. could start to claim its trillions of barrels of oil as proven reserves.
