Yes sir. It was quite an economic bust, that is for sure. From the air?? The Occidental development??? I have lived here my entire life. 53 great years. I have seen 4 boom and busts. Weathered the economic storms and grew strong from them. Natural gas production is the "swing" we are on now.

You know something Slappy, when somebody puts out numbers and figures about oil reserves, they are probably going off the information of oil geologists and such. This does not make them the BAD AMERICA BUNCH you Fascist idiot.

Within reason they also use USGS, and they actually communicate with each other. Not everywhere is it a ping pong match

In addition, the link you liked so much, refers to what the USGS "Is Going To Show", so apparently, they can't be all that dumb. It was the crux of a massive email campaign, and even some speculative (scamming) web sites posted the same thing.

Maybe one day the reserves will be proven. But so far, it's all

What that graphic does accurately reflect is everything that comes from one barrel of oil. 19 gallons may be the portion of gas that is refined but other products are made from the other portion. A refinery does not just make gas out the oil, it makes all of these other products out of that same barrel. Nothing is wasted. Even the coke, which is a waste product can be burned as a fuel in power plants.

And as faw as shallow water drilling, with newer technology that is available today some older leases that once were thought to be tapped out are being put back into service. Macmoran (sp?) just hit a large area about a month ago in ~100 ft of water south of Lafayette.
