How Much Oil Is There Left?

Much of Britain’s energy comes from oil - but how do we tell how much is left? Join our Museum expert to find out more.

As the issue of climate change heats up the question of where we get our energy from is shooting up the political and social agenda. Often branded as a dirty fuel, oil accounts for much of the energy we use as a nation, but for how long can this go on? In 2005 a major oil company revised their reserves by an astonishing 20 percent - how so? How scientists try to predict oil reserves and why any estimates are uncertain will be the topic for discussion in this thought-provoking experience.
