Global oil production saw a 0.4% increase in 2008, according to the 2009 BP Statistical Review of World Energy.
But while the overall industry saw a rise in production, several countries saw oil production sink considerably.
As the threat of Peak Oil continues to rise, the areas of the world that are running low are increasingly in danger of seeing their bubble get burst.
We’ve compiled a list, based on the data released by BP, of the 10 countries at the bottom of the barrel.
Denmark was down 7.7% in 2008. This cargo ship, the 'Skarpoe,' got stuck in shallow waters off the Danish island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, but managed not to spill any oil.
Italy is not quite ready to wave the white flag, but being down 10.9% in 2008 is not a good sign.
By one tenth of one per cent, Yemen emerged as the country with the most dwindling oil production last year, down 11.6%.
