    OIL

    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 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 I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sent
    this to every one in your address book.

    Check out the links.

    Even if we had a huge domestic supply, which I doubt, the way it is sold on the world market precludes the possibility of energy independence with petroleum. China is pretty thirsty and will readily buy up every barrel Exxon/Mobil can sell them (the real and only winners in increased domestic production).

    I took some equipment to Williston 3 years ago, just before Christmas and froze my but off, -40F. I wouldn't work ouside there in the winter for any amount. I respect the hell out of the guys that are.

    Like that is a good reason not to extract it, oil jobs pay very well and will boost the over all economy. Do you not think we need the jobs?

    Sure we need jobs, but presenting increased domestic production as a path to energy independence is a lie, tell it like it is, Exxon needs more cash, workers need more jobs and China needs more oil.

    Can't you come up with something more than liberal rhetoric?

    Not when it is the absolute truth, can't you come up with a substantive counter argument? You should know by now how all US oil is sold on the world market.

    Guess you haven't gotten to the supply and demand chapter in econ 101 yet, keep reading, you'll get there.

    It does not have to be... we CAN be energy independent.

    It just takes some will on our part.

    Guess you are not familiar with the oil companies routinely slowing production or holding shipments to keep prices high enough to make it profitable to drill in certain locations. Oil is incredibly manipulated at every stage of production, a price lowering glut is just not allowed.
