OIL.... THIS SHOULD UPSET YOU
The U. S.
Geological Service issued a report in April ('08) that only scientists and oil
men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been
updated since '95) 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
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
'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.' And 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 41 years straight.
2. And if THAT
didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from TWO
U. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the
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 motherload of oil why are we still fighting over
They reported this stunning news: We have more oil
inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth. Here are the
- 8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia
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
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.
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
Got your attention/ire up yet? Hope so! Now, while you're
thinking about it .... and hopefully P.O'd, do this:
3. Pass this along.
If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the
next time you want to complain about gas prices ... because by doing NOTHING,
you've forfeited 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
the way...this is all true. Check it out at the link below!!!
GOOGLE it or follow this link. It
will blow your mind.
A friend sent this to me and YES it was a BIG surprise! Why do you suppose reserves are being withheld from our own use??? Sound OFF SHs, let us know what you think!
