Oil update.




This needs to be kept going till all the fake American politicians are OUT of office and real Americans are in charge.
It applies equally to both Republicans and Democrats.

As you may know, Cruz Construction started a division in North Dakota just 6 months ago.

They sent every Kenworth (9 trucks) we had here in Alaska to North Dakota and several drivers.

They just bought two new Kenworth's to add to that fleet; one being a Tri Drive tractor and a new 65 ton lowboy to go with it.

They also bought two new cranes (one crawler & one rubber tired) for that division.

Dave Cruz said they have moved more rigs in the last 6 months in ND than Cruz Construction moved in Alaska in the last 6 years.

Williston , ND is like a gold rush town; they moved one of our 40 man camps down there since there are no rooms available.

Unemployment in ND is the lowest in the nation at 3.4 percent last I checked.

See anything in the national news about how the oil industry is fueling North Dakota 's economy?

Here's an astonishing 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."

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( 5 billion barrels), 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," reportsThe 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 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 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 can be verified. Check it out at the link below !!!!!!

As an old oil man, I have doubts about a lot of the assertions in the above.

In the middle east - Kuwait, for example, an oil well that produces 100,000 barrels per day is not uncommon. Here, only a few states produce that much oil,

Also, some of this new oil requires expensive technology. If the oil is there, it is not cheap oil.

About 15 years ago, a CEO from Shell Oil Co. retired and stopped in at an RV place and in conversation told an employee there, that there is enough oil in Missouri to run the United States for 200 years..... I was in total shock because there aren't any oil wells like that in Missouri......that are operating..... and to have that kind of oil??

I'm so sick and tired of the mainstream news media trying to scare Americans into believing that our oil supply is going to be shut off IF they close the strait of Hormuz......

I am sick and tired of the liars and the thieves running this country.

Ok even if Missouri and ND had only half of the oil claimed here and then you add in ANWAR and crank up the offshore drilling open up XL you don't have a problem. But when you shut down or severly restrict one of these areas you can create a problem.

Thats not to say that if you let green energy proceed at it's own pace that it can't help to a degree. Get the green nuts out of their restricting coal and proceed with NG will also add to the lifting of the burden.

This doesn't even take into the fact of cutting the unemployment rate. Then for added bonus cut down illegal immigrarion and you have drasticaly solved the majority of our economic woes.

Obama has had four years of the best available opportunities to turn this country around...

instead he has put a regressive tax in place, driven an entire medical device industry overseas, . hindered Ohio drilling,.. killed offshore drilling, stopped the XL pipeline, stopped any state effort to deal with illegal immigration.. and that is just the short list)

and the American people still are striving for a better life... imagine four years without him...
