This year’s Statistical Review introduces two changes in how oil and gas are reported in energy units. First, primary consumption of energy from oil is now reported in tonnes of oil equivalent where one tonne of oil is defined as 10 Gcal (gigacalories) or GJ (gigajoules).

The quick answer: “Not really, but kinda sorta.” Oil and gas reserves are usually the most valuable asset of a company. Engineering estimates of proved reserve quantities are reported to investors under GAAP (in the U.S.), but not valued.
