Résumé : «In 2010, greehhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the consumption of oil products accounted for 25% of the world’s GHG emissions of 44.5 gigatonnes (Gt) (EIA, 2014; WRI, 2014). This was second to the consumption of coal, which amounted to 31% of all emissions. If the 140 countries associated to the Copenhagen Accord are to make the deep cuts in global emissions to limit global warming to 2°C (UNEP, 2010), much less oil and coal will have to be consumed, and therefore produced. Does this mean that oil production has to decline everywhere, or can there be some local increase in oil production, in a world with lower oil production and consumption levels?
Such question is relevant in jurisdictions where some potentially commercially viable oil production could take place. Can new oil projects be considered in a context of GHG emission pathways consistent with the 2°C limit? This paper aims at answering this question.»
