Everyone agrees that if oil production is going to increase it will have to come from the group of 13 oil producing countries known as OPEC. But can OPEC really do it? We meet the men in power and find out that all may not be as it seems. Travelling to Kuwait the documentary team uncovers exclusive evidence that world oil reserves may be exaggerated by up to 50%.
There is a new documentary on CBCNewsworld, entitled Oil Apocalypse Now?. According to the promotional bulletin, it "reveals the myths and conspiracy theories surrounding the future of our world's oil supplies" and offers an in-depth, intercontinental look at oil production and consumption. It airs September 15 at 10 PM ET and September 21 at 8 PM ET on CBC Newsworld.

Update: The title of the original is Petroabpocalypse Now?, but I think they're changing it for North American audiences. Here's the trailer. I can't stand the voiceover, but I think it looks interesting, nevertheless.
