    How about these slobber ?

    Massive Oil Deposit Could Increase US reserves by 10x
    America is sitting on top of a super massive 200 billion barrel Oil Field that could potentially make America Energy Independent and until now has largely gone unnoticed. Thanks to new technology the Bakken Formation in North Dakota could boost America’s Oil reserves by an incredible 10 times, giving western economies the trump card against OPEC’s short squeeze on oil supply and making Iranian and Venezuelan threats of disrupted supply irrelevant.

    In the next 30 days the USGS (U.S. Geological Survey) will release a new report giving an accurate resource assessment of the Bakken Oil Formation that covers North Dakota and portions of South Dakota and Montana. With new horizontal drilling technology it is believed that from 175 to 500 billion barrels of recoverable oil are held in this 200,000 square mile reserve that was initially discovered in 1951. The USGS did an initial study back in 1999 that estimated 400 billion recoverable barrels were present but with prices bottoming out at $10 a barrel back then the report was dismissed because of the higher cost of horizontal drilling techniques that would be needed, estimated at $20-$40 a barrel.

    It was not until 2007, when EOG Resources of Texas started a frenzy when they drilled a single well in Parshal N.D. that is expected to yield 700,000 barrels of oil that real excitement and money started to flow in North Dakota. Marathon Oil is investing $1.5 billion and drilling 300 new wells in what is expected to be one of the greatest booms in Oil discovery since Oil was discovered in Saudi Arabia in 1938.

    Obviously, didn’t think.




    But back to the subject at hand, why doesn’t the Commander in Chief just declare an emergency and over-ride all legal objections to the off-shore drilling? Is this simply a matter of not having a man’s nut-sack?

    Or is it a matter of oil company’s influence and over acting the position that their hands are tied by legislation that - in the end - will allow them to make even better profits in the future?

    If the issue is lack of production from refineries, much bemoaned by folks with lack of vision, then the oil companies could have invested - a couple of decades ago - IN MEXICO, where environmental concerns are without existence and simply tankered the finished product in to Gulf ports.

    We’re being bullshitted to folks - and not just from Greenpeace.

    My God, you are stupid. The President can not willy nilly over-ride legislation that has been on the books for the last 26 years. Prez Bush has urged Congress to lift the ban which Pisslosi will not let come to the floor for a vote. Looks like you do not have a clue what legislators in your own state stand for or against.

    According to him, we could chunk out the other two branches of government and change the Prez. title to KING.

    Well hang on, where are the facts that theres another Middle East down there? Both sides are spewing out garbage about how much is there in a desperate push to either get drilling going or to stop it. I merely say I doubt theres a great deal there as oil companies do have some space around the region to explore.

    And I've said it's worth a shot to look.
