IMO the problems in the Middle East and with Russia are not about oil.
It is about power, land, water, competition in all markets and old fashioned friend-or-foe worldview.
With solar technology (panels or microbes producing fuel) and fusion reactors (in some decades) and probably other technologies, the oil selling states better hurry to sell what they have before fossil fuel becomes worthless. The Paris Agreement makes this even more difficult now.
The Stone Age came to an end, not because we had a lack of stones, and the oil age will come to an end not because we have a lack of oil.
