Heavy oil comprises 50% of known oil reserves (roughly 8 trillion
barrels) but represents just one in ten barrels of current
production. New global investment could double this output by 2025.
The Energy and Information Administration (EIA) forecasts future
heavy oil production to increase by 200 percent from 2006 to 2030. Of
the world's total oil reserves, an estimated 53 percent are in the
form of heavy oil or bitumen.
