    Nearly 40 years ago, when the first oil price shock from the Middle East and OPEC disrupted the American economy, North Carolina and Appalachia briefly became an oil and gas frontier. Following geological investigations, Chevron drilled an exploratory well in the Deep River Basin beneath Lee County, N.C. Oil was discovered at 5,000 feet, but it contained excessive paraffin and Chevron plugged the well.

    It remains there today as a new natural gas and oil technology has emerged: the capability of opening tight rock formations or shale through hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling.

    Why is North Carolina not yet a site for drilling rigs, mud and service companies? Why is there shale gas exploration and production in the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, and on different rock formations in Arkansas, Texas and in the Rocky Mountains?

    The answer is political.

    New state political leadership is prepared to change this and create the necessary government authority and institutions to issue permits, regulate and manage the economic benefits for people of North Carolina.

    Here's hoping. :thup:

    To be able to produce shale gas, one must first have shale gas.

    There is no mention in the article of anyone finding shale gas in North Carolina.

    You know, I've been around and in and studying the energy business for multiple decades now, and haven't heard of this guy. How much "renowned" does it take to make up for, lack of experience in the field?

    Oh Please!!! Do tell (PM me?) I'd be VERY VERY disappointed if there really really wasn't a Mining and Minerals Resources Institute @ MIT.. And if this was a complete fraud, I'd be crushed like a grape harvest..
