We use about 4.9 km^3 per year. Oil has a density of about 0.9kg/L, so that gives us 4.41 x 10^12 kg per year.
Or, about 140,000 kg/second.
So you are correct, although I did doubt your figures at first.
(Also, could the USA please stop measuring oil in volume, which changes density depending on composition, pressure and temperature. Also, please stop using archaic units like "bbl".)
No, that makes him incorrect. 140,000 kg/sec is not more than 100,000 tonnes/sec.
