Halloween Nightmare: Drill, Baby, Drill!!
It’s enough to make environmentalists scream “Bloody Murder!” into the night on Halloween!
Just after the government shutdown ended, the ghouls at the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) introduced a new service called the “Drilling Productivity Report“.
It has everything you always wanted to know about oil and gas drilling, but were afraid to ask.
Gasp! Now oily-fingered killers can sign up for email updates about current events in the world of… of… driilling! Yes, your fiendish author tossed his tarnished email address into the ring!
Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Drilling Productivity Report knows!
The New Oil and Gas Brew
Round about the cauldron go; and in the poison’d entrails throw
Macbeth, Three Witches, Bill Shakespeare (1564-1616)
In just 6 short years since 2007 the above EIA graph shows a strange transformation has occurred. Today, more than 50% of all new wells produce BOTH oil and gas! Gasp, again!!
Worse, the graph shows that about 40,000 new wells are drilled in the United States each year. We are producing more oil than ever. It’s a dagger stab in the heart of global warming alarmists! Gasp, a 3rd time!!!
Evil! Evil! Evil!
Where is all the Blood-Sucking Vampire Drilling?
Break out that old Volkswagen van that hasn’t run in years. Fix it up! Fire it up! Head out for North Dakota, or Wyoming, or Texas or West Virginia or Transylvania… uhhh… I mean Pennsylvania. Make no never-mind about the gas station stops!
That’s where all the new drilling is. Stop it now.
Be careful in Texas. They all wear cowboy hats, jealously guard their private property and shoot to kill first before asking questions later.
The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. But crime does pay…
The ‘Drilling Productivity Report’ knows!
At 40,000 wells/year the fight against big oil is being lost. Big oil’s cackle-like laughter can be heard all the way to the bank.
No doubt about it. With the Drilling Productivity Report even the U.S. Energy Information Administration has gone over to the Dark Side.
Woe is me. It’s green energy’s worst Halloween nightmare come to life!
