know know that oil won't run out anytime soon. As for the longer term
predictions, we know that available oil and oil alternatives are
present in sufficient quantity to last at least 300 to 400 years at
current consumption levels. In other words, the likelihood that humans
will run out of oil is nil, since in 300 years there will be most
likely no humans left anyway.

300 to 400 hundred years worth of oil left at current consumption levels?
Please provide links supporting this claim.

Keith has talked about humanity running out of "cheap fossil fuels" and that
is different from having centuries worth of the much harder to reach and/or
refine oil ($$$) to survive on.

Why can't we agree on anything? LOL!
