Transcript curve of exploitation — are fraught with great risks of error, chiefly traceable to the fact that we are operating with inaccurate data of doubtful value. Therefore, we must assume a highly skeptical attitude on all statistics published concerning oil reserves, and give serious consideration only to the verified figures relating to prepared and prospected reserves, and even these should be used with great caution. No wonder we find a whole gamut of exceedingly contradictory figures concerning the oil reserves. Nevertheless, one cannot deny that such estimates of our oil reserves are not wholly devoid of importance and may serve as a means of orientation. After making these preliminary reservations, we may now proceed to state the facts known about our oil wells. In the statement of our power resources submitted to the London Power Conference in 1924, the oil reserves of our Union were estimated at 2,882 million tons, including 1,442 million tons at Baku, 900.9 million tons at Grozny, 262 million tons in the Ural-Emba region, 98 million tons in the Sakhalin region, 65.5 million tons in the Kuban region, 32.7 million tons each in the Trans-Caucasian, Ukhta, and Trans-Caspian regions, and 16.4 million tons in the Central Asiatic region (Ferghana). This estimate was based upon data furnished by Russian geologists. These figures put us in the lead as regards deposits. They exceed considerably the total output of the United States during the 70 years of the existence of the oil industry (from 1859 till 1930 inclusive). As already said, during the whole of this period the U.S.A. produced 14,235 million barrels, or about 2 billion tons. Another estimate of our oil resources was made in 1931 by a foreigner, a leading American geologist, David White. He puts the figure at 860.6 million tons, which is less than a third of the estimate first mentioned. 3 e 33
