Re: OPEC Imports at 28 Year Low.

I heard but can't seem to confirm that Saudi oil imports the most recent month were zero barrels.

I doubt that is true. It is true that sometime last year the USA no longer imported light sweet from Saudi, but was/is still importing [more]

Re: pipeline nation

Our pipeline system is a disaster. Aging, leaking, and very little of spilled oil is recovered.

Once the well is drilled, how long to get the fracking done and the well producing? If it is a month or two, then these are "near-line" wells, ready to go "online" in a short period of time.

Re: WTI Below $43 - RBOB Gasoline Clings To $1.71

Much has been said in the last 48 hours about rig count, but it seems almost irrelevant. 3,000 wells out there that are completed, and connected, literally just need to be turned on to start producing. The reason for waiting, the belief [more]

Re: Oil prices possibly near bottom, maybe...

There are three thousand wells in the world that are completed or near completed and not producing a drop. Think of it as stored oil in the ground on top of the approaching tank top coming.

In addition to this there is a large backlog of drilled wells that are waiting on completions. I have [more]

Re: Ethyl's slide into the oily vortex of doom

Except for the fact that we don't get the oil, American steel is not being used to build it, and we take all the spill risk for none of the reward.
