A recent report from the London-based Carbon Tracker Initiative think tank warns that many oil companies are committing too much money to projects with high breakeven costs, putting them at great risk should oil prices see a sustained decline.

The report argues that policies aimed at curbing climate change, such as energy efficiency mandates and restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions, are likely to significantly reduce future global oil demand, exerting downward pressure on oil prices.

Such a scenario, Carbon Tracker said, would be especially bad for projects with high costs of production in excess of $95 per barrel for Brent crude.

The oil sands will be developed and will be profitable. That isn't really news to some of us with investments around Fort McMurray. We just keep cashing those dividend checks.

I like the concept of a "downward pressure on oil prices," but NOT because of Team Obama's anti-fossil fuel crap!

I think it's a big mistake to expect oil prices to fall that much, but we can hope?
