OIL - you better sit down.
Here's an interesting read, important and verifiable
About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on
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
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
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
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
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
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 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
and others have blocked all efforts to help America
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
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
It's all about the
competitive marketplace, - it has to. Think OPEC just
might be funding the
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
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.
