BFD. This represents 50 days supply for the US.

Since you are looking under rocks under the ocean it is a good demonstration that Peak Oil is here. We stopped discovering oil on land a long time ago.

20 million barrels per day US consumption x 50 DAYS = the one billion barrels of this oil discovery
