The Arab World and fuel consumption in the years to come


The Arab world has many advantages and characteristics (it stores thirds of the world of global energy sources, and is suffering from growing in the low population growth in the current water level and the possibility of unsuitable environmental climate change).Statistical studies show that global oil consumption will continue its increase through the coming years as a result of the improved economic performance in various international groups, the International Energy Agency predicts the rising demand for oil from the current level of 68 MILLION barrels per day by 2010, and that demand for OPEC oil will range by the upcoming years between (47-50) BILLION barrels a day and only six countries of OPEC will have to fulfill half the world’s oil needs, and these countries (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, UAE, Iraq, Iran, Venezuela, which have a reserve of about 630 billion barrels, equivalent to two-thirds of the world’s reserve But in the field of gas, the Arab region has (about 21.7%) of the world’s reserves, and statistics indicate that fuel consumption presently in steel industry 5%, crude oil 10%, gas 9% and hydroelectricity and esoteric temperature about (3%) that these percentages represent fuel consumption trends in developed countries (Abdulmutallib 1979 p. 112), so to say, that mineral fuels is the primary source of energy now and in the future.

Energy demand has dramatically increased remarkably and that’s in response to the operations of the manufacturing, mining, urbanization and societal wealth, and that the per capita consumption of energy in the industrial market economies more than 80 times the per capita consumption in the southern part of the Sahara in Africa, add to that, about a quarter of the world’s population consume three-quarters of primary energy in the world as a whole, the statistics indicate, if it continues, energy consumption in the industrialized countries by the year 2025 will run out of energy by (55) Terra Watts, knowing that one Terra Watts equals billion Kilo Watts, that these Mineral Resources and energy sources will be exposed to a large drain because of the economic and social progress and the increase in population and other factors, indicate statistical studies, that oil reserves will drain between the years (2075-2100) and either coal, the current consumption rates of about 3000 million tons, and will increase this rate, and in 2000 Coal reached the limits of consumption (17-18) billion tons per year in the late twenty-first century atheist and will increase, then gradually decrease.
