>I don't claim to be an expert in this area but I take an interest, I hear this term used "peak oil" which is to say that eventually, all the oil underground will run out, it's not a case of if but when.

That is not what 'peak oil' means.

'Peak oil' happens when we cannot produce more oil this year, than we did last year. It may plateau for several years, while demand keeps on rising. That is 'peak oil'.
