Considering oil is not used to manufacture common fertilizers, I think
you should be more concerned with natural gas depletion.

Above link was the first thing I could find.

Now if natural gas were to become unavailable, we would be forced to
rely on coal sources of fertilizer as China is doing.  When that
becomes scarce, we are back to organics fertilizers made from human
and animal waste.
