The Texas Oil Boom Is Lean And Sweet


Drillers in the Texas oil patch are reaping the benefits of efficiency gains wrung out painfully during the recent bust. A record 4 million barrels a day come out of the Lone Star State, up 15% from 2014, when prices last hit $100 a barrel–and the industry is doing so with three quarters of the workers and just over half the drilling rigs.

    Yo Boat, yes i do have a date on that bust but i am not going to tell any of you lot, that is privileged information on a need to know basis. I can give you a little hint that the bust will be sometime before 2024.

    Lucifer, is my new girlfriend telling me the truth when she says she only stripped as fodder for a book she is writing?

    When your country is collapsing, a patriotic American cannot help but becoming obsessed with trying to save it.
