Supplementary notes

* The abbreviation Gtce stands for gigatons of coal equivalent.

According to the source, the following energy sources belong to the respective commodity groups:

  1. Non-conventional oil: oil sands / heavy oil and oil shale
  2. Non-conventional natural gas: shale gas/tight gas, coal bed methane (CBM), gas hydrates and aquifers
  3. Coal: hard coal and lignite
  4. Nuclear fuel: uranium and thorium
The source uses the following conversion factor for uranium: 1t U = 14000t SKE.
For thorium, the same factor has been adopted.

The source distinguishes between "reserves" and "resources" as follows: "Reserves: Quantities of energy sources which were accurately recorded and can be commercially extracted using current technologies Resources: Quantities of energy sources which are either proved as existing but are currently not commercially recoverable, or are expected to be located by geological indicators and can be verified by exploration"
