One metric ton of crude oil equals:
* 2,204 pounds
* 7.46 barrels of domestic crude oil
* 6.99 barrels of foreign crude oil
Russian Oil estimates estimates [Granberg et al., 1993; Malovitski et al., 1994] :
Potential recoverable hydrocarbon resources of the Russian continental shelves are estimated within 90 to 100 billion tons of oil equivalent.
95*7.46 = about 700 billion potential bbls in Russian continental shelves (this does not account for all of Russia, much of Russia has not been prospected)
By the way - welcome to the Cafe, my man! You've got your head about you (apparently), and you seem to speak from a position of information. That's not always the case around here.
Keep up this level of conversation and you'll do fine.
