Oil- is this true??

Recommended Posts

I just had this mailed to me. Is this for real??

PLEASE take the time to read this email, and absorb---quite remarkable…..or maybe you already knew.’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’

Here's an interesting read, important and verifiable information :

About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil and one of the Forbes Bros. was the guest.

The host said to Forbes, "I am going to ask you a direct question and I would like a direct answer;

how much oil does the U.S. have in the ground?"

Forbes did not miss a beat, he said, "more than all the Middle East put together."

Please read below.

The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only Scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big.

It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota,

western South Dakota, and extreme eastern Montana ...... check THIS out:

The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska's Prudhoe Bay,

and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels.

Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5..3 trillion.

"When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor.

They had no idea.." says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst.

"This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years," reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

It's a formation known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.'

It stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada.

For years, U. S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end.

Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago.

However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's massive reserves....

and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels.

And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!

That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years straight.

And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from 2006!

U. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World

Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006

Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world.

It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction.

In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted.

With this mother load of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?

They reported this stunning news:

We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth.

Here are the official estimates:

- 8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia

- 18-times as much oil as Iraq

- 21-times as much oil as Kuwait

- 22-times as much oil as Iran

- 500-times as much oil as Yemen

- and it's all right here in the Western United States .

HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this?

Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America

become independent of foreign oil!

Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy.....WHY?

James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this

very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped.

That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.

Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find? Think again!

It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to.

Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists?

Got your attention yet? Now, while you're thinking about it, do this:

Pass this along.

If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next time you complain about gas prices

- by doing NOTHING, you forfeit your right to complain.

--------

Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you

sent this to every one in your address book.

By the way...this is all true. Check it out at the link below!!!

GOOGLE it, or follow this link. It will blow your mind.

I work in the oil industry. Currently a contractor for Enbridge Pipeline, and previously with Amerada Hess in the Dakotas. There are hundreds of sites that have been drilled and capped for future withdrawal showing mass amounts of quantity. This doesn't even include the small boom occurring in western North Dakota where my brother's working right now. Even far into Minnesota here where they've never seen a pumping unit(oil well) yet.

There is several generations of domestic oil sitting under the Mid-west alone. Getting it out of the ground just requires so much bureaucracy right now. Maybe someday.

I do think that might be truth based. When I go through Wyoming I do see a lot of oil type activity.

I wonder if they would rather use up the middle east supply before tapping in to our own supply. Sort of the way I was when I drank beer.

The sad part is the oil fields cover some unreal riding areas. I will try to snap some pictures the next time I go through as it woudl be impossible to describe.

One of the problems in these figures is that is does not include the quality of the oil reserves.

The best example is the Athabasca Oil Sands, enormous known reserves, but tar like quality which would be very very expensive to produce and to convert. Ok its in Canada but you get the idea.

No doubt about it though, the US has huge untapped reserves, which will in the future be tapped once it either becomes economical to do so or the political wind changes.

Whether it rivals the Mid East, we'll find out soon enough :excuseme:

We could have an infinite oil supply under the US. It doesn't matter. The same environmental wack jobs that close down our riding areas will block any license to drill. The Bush administration approved something like 1100 requests to drill off shore where there is known oil supplies. EVERY one was blocked or tied up in lawsuits.

C'mon BRM, this has been an age old fact ---- the US is reserving this in case of World War 3 (and remember the Cold War?) and for the eventual depletion of the commercial oil in the Middle East.

C'mon, don't tell me you don't know this mate, all the while :excuseme:

I work in the oil industry in Canada, and there are new technologies for tar sand oil extraction (heavy oil) that are far cheaper and environmentally sound (minimal footprint) than mining etc... THAI (Toe to heel air injection) technology for example, who's use is increasing throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada. It really comes down to settling on a renewable source of energy that can sustain current rising needs. Until then, these technologies will continue to be utilized and advanced. Have no doubt the means are out there, which leads to the fact that the US gov't is not tapping into it for other reasons. edit: Could be the tree huggers as mentioned above.

This entire oil issue is because you guys wont stick with 32:1. Once you started using 50:1 or 100:1, the amount used dropped. Our economy has sucked since.

I'm using 40:1 that helps a bit.

I don't mind high oil prices too much as I have a company car a shell card.

Also if the oil companys are making money I have work.
