Two WattHead Milestones - Welcome New Readers!


Well, I'm excited to say that we've hit two new milestones here at WattHead. First off, yesterday was the first day the site reached 100+ visits! Thanks mostly to the folks over at Treehugger who provided a relatively prominent link to my recent post on Mitsubishi's new MIEV concept car, a lot of new folks found there way to WattHead this week. This also helped the site reach another milestone: we recently passed the 1500 total visits mark since I added a site counter to WattHead in October and are now quickly on our way towards 2000+.

I'd like to thank all those who have visited my blog and spent the time reading the news, rants and ideas I have posted. I'd also like to welcome all those new readers who visited this week. Thanks for checking out the site and I really hope you stick around, pop back here and scan the posts every once and a while.

If anyone has any comments - what you would like to see more or less of here, what you enjoy, general advice, etc. - I'd appreciate them here.

Thanks everyone for visiting WattHead; I hope it was as good for you as it was for me ... ;)

[btw, that is an actual Roman milestone in the picture there, in case you were wondering...]

The government have revised their forecasts and it's a rather fascinating revision.

They now forecast an oil price of $54 in 2025, up $21 from last year's forecast, because they've slashed 11 million barrels of their forecast for OPEC production.

In turn, they've raised their forecast for US oil production by 1.6 million barrels per day, and slashed their demand forecast by 1.9 million barrels per day. That's a cool 3.5 million barrels per day revision in imports, 3.5 times what ANWR might deliver.

And ANWR is not small beans, production wise, it only appears that way, if you compare to US consumption. A million barrels per day is over half of UK consumption or roughly equal to Indonesian demand/production and Indonesia is both an OPEC member and a nation with around 200 million people!

Anyways, I thought you might appreciate the link to the revised EIA outlook.
