Ok my apologies for a long post that is also an advert for a newsletter but I'd be very interested in the experts views on this whole idea. Here we go:

 

 

America to Stop ALL Oil Imports from the Middle East!

 

U.S. Government unveils secret of the world's biggest oil reserve, which spans Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming and holds...

8-times more oil than Saudi Arabia... 18-times more oil than Iraq... 22 times more oil than Iran...

 

 

 

When drilling begins, it could mean an end to Middle East oil dependency... and it could make early investors rich.

 

 

Dear Reader,

 

Al-Qaeda has declared war on Middle Eastern oil facilities...

 

In March, terrorists rammed three bomb-loaded cars through the front gates of Abqaiq, a gigantic Saudi Arabian oil facility.

 

This was the second attempt in as many months to destroy Saudi Arabia’s biggest oil refinery — with terrorists getting as close as 300 feet to the most sensitive areas.

 

A successful strike would have lifted oil prices to $150 a barrel for as long as a year.

 

Since then, the Juaymah storage tanks and the off shore rigs at Ras Tanura — both in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern province — have also narrowly avoided destruction.

 

In July the situation got even worse. The conflict between Israel and Hezbollah pushed oil prices to $78 per barrel — a record high!

 

Here in the United States, the message is clear: End dependency on foreign oil or suffer the consequences.

 

This is why last year a group of U.S. lawmakers unleashed a new plan: to finally unveil a secret U.S. government oil field and unlock the oil trapped inside.

 

Last August, the Energy Department delivered the full report:

 

This new reserve holds more than 2 TRILLION barrels of oil... Enough to meet our energy demands for the next 500 years, according to some estimates.

 

In other words, this reserve is so big it could put a stop to our foreign oil dependency and end oil worries forever.

 

While you almost never hear about it in the mainstream news, plans are already underway to drill this massive oil field.

 

The government is finalizing the details this very moment...

 

• “The gigantic untapped [oil] resources found in Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming are sufficient to meet our energy needs, while also contributing to the ever-increasing global demand for liquid fuels.”

-- Utah Senator, Orrin Hatch

 

• Developing this new oil resource “could literally shake the world.”

-- Chairman of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, Pete Domenici

 

• “We actually have some of the world’s largest potential oil resources within our borders. If my math is correct, we have 12 times as much oil as Saudi Arabia.”

-- Energy and Minerals Subcommittee Chairman, Jim Gibbons

 

Already, a small group of companies have been chosen to lead the way.

 

I’ve written this letter to tell you everything I’ve learned about America’s biggest and most secret oil reserve… where it’s located... who’s going to drill it… and how it could mean an end to high oil prices and foreign imports for good.

 

Here’s the full story...

 

The Next American Oil Boom

 

There’s a new source of oil in the American West.

 

Today, it sits idle — untapped — inside more than 16,000 square miles of rock and sand.

 

Geologists call what lies in this region, oil shale.

 

What is oil shale?

 

 

At first glance, oil shale looks like an ordinary black rock.

 

It feels grainy to the touch and... greasy. You see, what’s inside oil shale has huge governments, Big Oil, venture capitalists, and even everyday investors scrambling to stake a claim.

 

Oil shale — when heated — oozes bubbling crude.

 

This precious resource is rare — found only in a few select countries. Places like China, Brazil, Estonia, Morocco, and Australia.

 

 

But the real story is how much untapped oil shale lies beneath U.S. soil. As the chart to the right indicates, there’s 4-times more oil shale in the U.S. than in all other countries combined.

 

Over the past 125 years, oil shale has been the secret oil source for a handful of nations. Specifically, those fortunate enough to have it...

 

China’s been using oil shale since 1929. Today, China is the largest producer of oil from oil shale. It plans to double the daily rate of production soon.

Estonia is an oil shale dependent economy. Over 90% of the country’s electricity is fueled by shale oil. In fact, electricity run on oil shale is a chief export.

In 1991, Brazil built the world’s largest oil shale facility. They’ve already produced more than 1.5 MILLION tons of oil to make high quality transportation fuels.

 

 

Jordan, Morocco, and Australia have recently announced plans to utilize their oil shale resources. All 3 governments are currently working to build oil shale facilities.

 

 

But all these countries’ oil shale resources pale in comparison to the U.S. supply. As you can see from the table to the right, the United States dominates the oil shale market — with over 72% of the world’s oil shale resources.

 

Our gargantuan supply of oil lies beneath an area called the Green River Formation — a barren stretch of land covering portions of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming.

 

World-renowned geologist Walter Youngquist calls the oil beneath the Green River Formation, “a national treasure.”

 

Congress calls this area simply, “the next Saudi Arabia.”

 

It’s easy to see why...

 

This region holds the largest known oil reserve on the planet...

 

Colorado’s Oil Lands — Restricted for 76 Years, Now Open for Drilling

 

There are over 16,000 square miles of oil shale in the Green River formation...

 

The most abundant areas hold up to 2 million barrels of oil per acre — it’s the most concentrated energy source on earth, according to the Energy Department.

 

The federal government owns 80% of this oil-rich land.

 

In fact, the government placed protective legislation on this land in 1930, forbidding anyone to touch it.

 

 

You see, the government always knew this land was saturated with oil — but getting it out has always been expensive.

 

Buying oil from foreign countries was always the cheaper bet. It has been for the past 80 years.

 

Wisely, the government kept the land around for a “rainy day”, protecting it with 1930s legislation.

 

I’m sure you’re aware of today’s situation at the gas pump. Buying oil from foreign countries has gotten out of hand. The price of oil is sky-high. It’s way too expensive to keep buying foreign oil. In other words, the “rainy day” has finally arrived.

 

The timing couldn’t be more perfect. Oil shale technologies have begun to advance – drastically.

 

Companies are coming up with ways to extract oil from the Green River Formation very cheaply.

 

For example, one Utah-based company says it can extract the oil for as little as $10 a barrel. In fact dozens of companies have stepped forward with similar claims. With oil prices approaching $70 a barrel – these are pretty significant breakthroughs.

 

That’s all the government needed to hear.

 

On August 8, 2005, President Bush signed into law a new energy mandate.

 

This mandate is called The Energy Policy Act of 2005. It calls for the opening phases of oil extraction in the Green River Formation – the world’s most concentrated energy source.

 

We’re finally ready to tap the largest oil reserve on the planet...

 

“The United States Could become ‘The New Middle East’”

 

~ U.S. Energy Department Survey

 

If you want to get in on the American oil shale boom, here’s what you need to know...

 

The New Middle East

 

It can be difficult to imagine such massive amounts of oil. Below, I’ve included a page of the Energy Department’s classified report. It puts into perspective how much recoverable oil we have — and the kind of money that will be made…

 

 

 

There’s so much oil in this region the Energy Dept. thinks we could become the world’s leading oil producer.

 

This reserve is so big it’s projected to last for 500 years, according to some estimates.

 

You could even add together all the oil in the Middle East—and our reserves would still come out on top — 3-TIMES LARGER.

 

That’s a lot of oil.

 

 

Of the 2 trillion barrels of proven oil in the Green River Formation — between 800 billion and 1.2 trillion barrels are recoverable. That’s the amount of oil we can actually get out and use.

 

Extracting this much domestic oil is very attractive to the government, especially in today’s politically unstable environment.

 

It’s estimated that tapping U.S. oil shale would decrease domestic oil prices by as much as five percent a year. That may not sound like much, but consider that a 5% drop in oil prices would save Americans $15 - $20 BILLION a year at the gas pumps.

 

That’s why on August 8, 2005, President Bush signed into law the Energy Policy Act of 2005.

 

This historic legislation officially opens up the Green River Formation to a handful of drilling companies.

 

In January, the government accepted proposals from six companies to test their oil shale drilling methods for commercial production.

 

Already 3 have been cut... Now only 3 are left.

 

From the remaining three, I think only one company’s drilling technology will meet the government’s strict shale development standards – and go on to develop oil shale on a commercial level.

 

This company would be responsible for launching America’s first commercial oil shale operation and production “…Leading the way to more than two trillion barrels of oil shale deposits in the Green River Formation,” writes the U.S. Federal News Service.

 

I’ll not only tell you who I think this company will be...

 

I’ve found several more ways you can make money from this situation.

 

How much can you expect to make?

 

You might be stunned when you see the numbers...

 

U.S. Oil Shale Could Make You $551,900 in the Next Few Years

 

You may be aware of a similar situation going on, right now in the oil business, in an area called the Alberta Oil Sands.

 

This region in Northern Canada holds billions of barrels of oil – which also happen to be locked inside large amounts of sand and rock.

 

Why am I telling you this?

 

Because in their recent analysis of the Green River Formation, the Energy Department wrote that the opportunity to make money in U.S. oil shale is “Comparable to Alberta, Canada Oil Sands.”

 

If you know anything about Canadian oil sands, you know for the past 5 years they’ve been moneymaking machines.

 

Here are a few examples:

 

In late 2003, Jay Reardon bought shares in a company called Western Oil Sands. If he cashed out today, he’d profit $364,070.32. Needless to say, he’s holding out for more. Western Oil Sands has gone up 1,564% in the last 5 years.

Investor J.R. Stanton got in on a company called Suncor Energy in April 2003. Today, he’s built a lasting family fortune worth more than $824,900. Since the late 90’s this stock has taken off 2,390%.

Since she began investing last year, Nichole Brubaker has made over $28,300 with Canadian Oil Sands Trust. This cash cow has returned a solid 1,605% since 1998.

A $10,000 investment in each of these leading oil sands companies in the late 1990s would now be worth more than $551,900.

 

Incredibly, even more money stands to be made with U.S. oil shale — at least 3-times more, by my calculations.

 

How do I know?

 

Just look at the numbers:

 

Fact #1 – U.S. oil shale is 2-times as dense as Canadian oil sands: It takes 2 tons of Canadian oil sand to produce one barrel of oil. It takes only half as much oil shale to generate a barrel of oil. There’s simply more oil in oil shale.

 

Fact #2 – The U.S. has larger oil resources: There’s 11-times more oil in the U.S. than there is in Alberta, Canada. See for yourself in the chart below.

 

 

Remember, U.S. oil shale is still untapped. A bigger supply of oil means longer lasting resources – and potentially, longer lasting opportunities to make money.

 

It’s important to know that the easy money has already been made in Canadian oil sands.

 

Oil shale is still a ground floor opportunity.

 

The RAND corporation (a government research think tank) says the oil shale industry could be a $20 billion a year industry in the U.S.

 

All you have to know is where all that money is going.

 

Because I've been involved in the oil business for the past decade, I can tell you exactly what's happening, and how to take advantage of it.

 

How to Stake Your Claim in

2 Trillion Barrels of Oil

 

I’ve spent every day of the past three months researching every possible way to make money with the massive U.S. oil shale supply.

 

I’ve found a total of THREE ways.

 

The first way is with my favorite oil shale company. I think their new drilling process is so innovative, the government will likely choose them to drill the mother lode in the Green River Formation.

 

How do I know they'll get the green light?

 

For the past 5 years this company has been tucked away deep in the Green River Formation – pumping out shale oil. However, it began laboratory testing back in 1981 – so they have more than 25 years of research under their belt.

 

Their process can extract oil for as little as $25 a barrel. With oil prices hovering around $70 a barrel, this company stands to make a fortune.

 

They’ve even submitted the largest patent application in history for their drilling process, so it will be protected for the next 20 years.

 

This revolutionary process heats the rock and sand while it’s still in the ground. Then they pump the oil as it oozes out from the ground.

 

It’s cheap... low profile... and environmentally friendly.

 

Altogether this company has invested more than $1 BILLION on alternative fuel sources, like oil shale. That’s not including their $150 million investment in China’s oil shale resources.

 

But here's the best part...

 

 

This company states they can produce as much as one million barrels of oil per acre in the Green River Formation. The government owns over 800,000 acres there. If the government grants them full access, and I think they will, that would be more oil than any company has ever extracted from oil shale.

 

When full-scale drilling begins, this company could double their daily rate of oil production... and double their share price. They’re even paying a generous dividend thanks to their other oil operations.

 

If you want to get in on the American oil shale boom, making money begins with this drilling company.

 

I’ve just finished compiling an in-depth research report detailing everything you need to know...

 

It’s called The U.S. Government’s Secret Oil Supply: How to Make Money in the American Oil Shale Boom.

 

This comprehensive report analyzes all the government nominated companies, including my favorite oil shale company – the company I think the government will choose to go after TRILLIONS of barrels of oil in the Green River Formation.

 

But that’s not all...

 

I told you I found THREE ways to make money in the coming American oil shale boom. Here are the two others...

 

Two More Ways to Cash in on the American Oil Shale Boom

 

To fuel its massive oil shale heaters, my favorite oil shale company needs an alternative source of power – something I call the “secret energy.”

 

Currently, their “secret energy” bills run about $60,000 per month – which will get even larger as oil shale development grows.

 

For the companies that supply “the secret energy,” it will likely mean a huge payday.

 

A recent article in a Colorado newspaper describes the situation best:

 

[The secret energy] demand will also surge when oil shale development takes off in the next few years in the [Piceance] basin.

 

The Piceance basin has the highest oil concentration in the Green River Formation – holding more than 1.2 TRILLION barrels of oil.

 

This is the region the government-selected companies will use to test their shale drilling methods.

 

I’ve found the largest “secret energy” company that supplies power to the Piceance basin.

 

How fast does the government want to get full-scale oil shale production started?

 

Exxon's oil shale proposal was rejected almost immediately because they didn't have a ten-year oil shale program in place. This reveals just how serious the government is about getting U.S.oil shale production up and running within the next 10 years.

 

 

As long as the government is pushing the oil shale development in the Piceance basin, this company will have to supply the power.

 

And I don’t see the government leaving anytime soon.

 

I expect this company's share price to soar as oil shale development takes off in the coming years. In fact, they too pay a consistent dividend – paid out steadily since 1989.

 

I explain the full details in my report, The U.S. Government’s Secret Oil Supply: How to Make Money in the American Oil Shale Boom.

 

And there's more...

 

I’ve discovered one more company you need to know about...

 

Take a look at this recent government quote...

 

The oil shale [testing] will take place in the same areas where drilling for natural gas has been rapidly expanding. If all the leases produce, the area would be transformed into a highly industrialized zone with a network of roads, pipelines, rail lines, and power plants to service the gas fields, oil shale heating sites and oil shale mines.

 

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management

 

In other words, if you’re a company going after oil shale, you need more than just the "secret energy" source, you need natural gas – and lots of it.

 

Oil shale companies use natural gas to heat the oil shale, run electricity, and for the day-to-day operations…

 

Natural gas is the cheapest way to get energy to the remote areas of western Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming.

 

I found a small gas company that stands to benefit as oil shale development increases. It sits on considerable amounts of land in the Green River Formation.

 

In The U.S. Government’s Secret Oil Supply: How to Make Money in the American Oil Shale Boom I’ll tell you about all the government-nominated companies, including my favorite oil shale company, the “secret energy” source company, and the natural gas company that stands to benefit from the situation.

 

That’s a total of THREE ways to potentially make a fortune in the American oil shale boom.

 

Best of all, I’d like to send you this report FREE of charge.

 

Let me show you how to get your copy...

 

How to Make a Fortune in Oil

 

My name is Matt Badiali. I’ve been studying the oil industry for the past 15 years. I’ve been involved in almost every aspect of geological exploration and drilling.

 

I'm a geologist by training... from my teaching positions at Duke and Florida Atlantic University... to my stints on a drill rig in Delray Beach, and as a field geologist for a variety of firms.

 

What it all boils down to is, understanding the industry... the new technologies being used... where new oil supplies are coming from... and how those supplies will reach us — the end users...

 

...I’ve seen it all.

 

Now, I spend every day researching and analyzing these crucial details... and reporting my best investment ideas for a financial research service called The Oil Report.

 

What I’m most excited about now is oil shale...

 

I’ve spent almost every day of the past 3 months compiling data for my report on how to own your share of the 2 TRILLION barrels of oil locked inside the Green River Formation.

 

My report, The U.S. Government’s Secret Oil Supply: How to Make Money in the American Oil Shale Boom details THREE potential ways to cash in on the coming American oil shale frenzy.

 

I devoted so much time this oil shale project because I don’t see an easier way to make a fortune over the next few years.

 

But don’t just take my word for it...

 

The Bush administration has already designated the Green River Formation, “The Next Big Energy Boom.”

 

As you can see, the U.S. government has already set the wheels in motion for oil shale. All you have to do is follow the path of money...

 

My report will show you how...

 

As I mentioned, I’d like to send you my Special Report, The U.S. Government’s Secret Oil Supply: How to Make Money in the American Oil Shale Boom absolutely FREE of charge. The only thing I ask in return is that you take a no-risk trial subscription to my monthly oil advisory, The Oil Report.

 

Before you decide, however, there’s something else I’d like to send you FREE of charge.

 

Oil shale is not the only place oil companies are looking for oil...

 

I’ve found another oil-rich hot spot that could be just as profitable...

 

Deepwater Oil: The New Frontier

The Minerals Management Service estimates that there are 71 billion barrels of oil waiting to be discovered in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

 

There are another 85 billion barrels off the coast of West Africa...

 

And the waters that surround the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea could hold as many as 300 billion barrels.

 

Altogether, these three regions alone represent enough reserves to replace HALF of all oil we’ve ever burned on earth.

 

Getting to this deepwater oil requires special equipment, new technologies, and lots of investment.

 

More money is starting to flow to the companies that specialize in deepwater drilling. These are the companies with the right technology to search under the ocean floor... the special deepwater rigs required to drill there... and the infrastructure to get that oil back to the mainland.

 

I’ve found a company with just this specialty. It’s only a matter of time before this stock really takes off.

 

Take a look at this recent newspaper quote...

 

Owners of offshore drilling platforms... are also among the first to profit from an oil-industry upturn. The most sophisticated deep-water drilling rigs cost up to $500,000 a day to hire, compared with $150,000 two years ago. With the world fleet of such rigs numbering less than 100, demand far outstrips supply.

 

~The London Times, February 2006

 

Seventy-five percent of all known deepwater oil reserves still need to be drilled. That’s great news for this company — who owns nearly half of all the deepwater drilling ships in the world. No other company comes close.

 

As demand heats up for their service, it’s almost guaranteed they’ll bring in a fortune. They charge $200,000 to $300,000 PER DAY to rent out their ships.

 

One of the ships is referred to as the Cadillac of deepwater drilling — the largest and most sophisticated of its kind.

 

It can reach far below sea level, then bore through another 20,000 feet of sand and rock.

 

As it drills, a sophisticated GPS system and six thrusters (that can pivot 360 degrees) keep the ship centered above the well, even in winds up to 95 miles per hour.

 

Without these rigs, it’s impossible to drill for oil in deepwater.

 

But that’s not the only thing you need...

 

How do you repair, inspect, and install deepwater drilling equipment?

 

How do you transport supplies, personnel, and equipment to the big offshore drill rigs?

 

Most importantly, how do you survey a region to find more oil?

 

You hire a service company...

 

2 Deepwater Service Companies You Simply Must Own in 2006-2007

According to the Sunday Times of London:

 

The support-services sector — from contactors who carry out seismic surveys to consultants and rig providers — is making hay as the oil giants’ profits trickle down the industry. Many firms are reporting that turnover has doubled in a year.

 

I’ve found 2 very attractive service companies that will benefit from the surge in offshore well drilling.

 

The first of these companies is a seismic data survey company. According to the oil-services firm Petrofac, “Seismic-survey contractors are the first to benefit when the industry starts to boom.”

It’s no wonder why... Seismic surveys cost about $2 million per survey.

 

The company I found is one of the world’s largest seismic survey contractors.

 

Their seismic data surveys allow exploration companies to “see” oil below deep underwater structures — capturing high-quality two and three-dimensional images of huge oil pockets.

 

They can even produce 4-dimensional surveys, which record fluid movement in the deep oil reservoirs.

 

This company has built an enormous library of underwater oil well data, which includes surveys in the Gulf of Mexico, the North Atlantic, Southeast Asia, West Africa, North Africa, Canada, and Brazil.

 

With rich oil companies scouring for oil beneath the deep ocean floors, you can count on them to pay top-dollar for this small company’s research.

 

The second company I found is a marine construction and pipe-laying company. They’re the people you call when you need something on your rig fixed, cleaned, or repaired.

They operate all over the globe — in Asia, India, West Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Gulf of Mexico — and work with almost all the major, and many independent oil companies.

 

Midway through 2006, there’s over $690 million in backorders for their services.

 

In fact, they leveraged their marine construction skills in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. They are in position to benefit from the massive clean-up and repair needs of rigs in the Gulf of Mexico.

 

All three companies are positioned to take advantage of the surging demand for deepwater drilling infrastructure.

 

And I’d like to give you the full details in a special report called, Deepwater Drilling: The New Frontier.

 

This report — like The U.S. Government’s Secret Oil Supply: How to Make Money in the New American Oil Boom — is also FREE of charge.

 

To receive a copy of each, all I ask is that you give my monthly oil research and investment advisory — The Oil Report — a risk-free trial.

But before I show you how to get started, there’s one more thing I want to tell you about...

 

Government-Guaranteed

Oil Checks

Most people aren’t aware of a special situation going on in Canada right now...

 

You see, the oil and gas markets are vital to the success of the Canadian economy. To attract more investors — and more money to these markets — the Canadian government created a new type of business.

 

These new businesses are called Royalty Trusts. They can be bought and sold just like regular stocks here in America. And you can buy them through any regular broker.

 

But that’s where the similarities end...

 

You see, Royalty Trusts are required by law to mail most of their earnings to shareholders — in the form of huge quarterly, sometimes monthly checks. In return, Royalty Trusts benefit by paying NO CORPORATE TAXES to the government.

 

Let me give you a few examples of how these businesses work…

 

One Calgary-based oil company mailed out an astounding $202 million dollars last year. In the last 5 years, they’ve mailed out over $709 million to their shareholders. Checks are sent on the 15th of each month.

Another Canadian energy company, which acquires and produces oil and natural gas, mailed out $277 million dollars last year. The year before they mailed out $196 million.

If you bought 2,000 shares of this company in late 2003, today, you’d have collected more than $18,600 in checks. If you bought 4,000 shares, you’d have over $37,200 in checks. That’s not even counting the share price appreciation. Checks are sent the third week of every month.

 

But I’ve found a Royalty Trust that’s even better…

 

Over the last five years this oil company has mailed out an unbelievable $1.9 BILLION to shareholders.

 

In the same amount of time the stock has soared over 550%.

 

Given the fact that they’ve just secured 70% of an oil field in Montana called Sleeping Giant — and have a plan in place to develop 80 new wells over the next three years — I think there’s plenty of room for growth.

 

Here’s the clincher...

 

Even if they never find another drop of oil — they have enough reserves and production capacity — to last another 12 years.

 

That’s 12 years of earnings and — by law — 12 years of guaranteed payouts... on top of any further moves the stock makes... even if they NEVER find another drop of oil.

 

The way I see it, you can take a portion of your safe money... invest in this company (and others like it)... and use the dividends to play the rest of the oil market.

 

I wrote an entire report about how these trusts work — including the details of the company I’ve been describing.

 

It’s called Get Paid to Invest in Oil: Guaranteed Income from Canada’s Royalty Trusts.

P.S. As I write this letter, I’ve found that the Pentagon has announced plans to purchase 300,000 barrels of Green River oil shale every day. They’ll use this fuel for military aircraft and vehicles. This deal shows just how fast things are moving in the Green River Formation. It’s still early in the game — but there’s no telling how much longer things will stay quiet.

LIKE the man says:

 

What is oil shale?

"At first glance, oil shale looks like an ordinary black rock.

 

It feels grainy to the touch and... greasy. You see, what’s inside oil shale has huge governments, Big Oil, venture capitalists, and even everyday investors scrambling to stake a claim.

Oil shale — when heated — oozes bubbling crude."

BUT, it takes alot of energy, and the bubbling ooze leaves a pollution problem

Whilst that is undoubtably true DB, if it only costs $25 a barrel to produce and means the US will become a net exporter of oil in a big way, I doubt very much that politicians will let environmental issues rule over economic ones. Be interesting to follow this and see where it leads. I remember Bush saying that policy would turn to making the US non dependant on unreliable foreign sources for it's energy.

 

I have long wondered why more effort wasn't being put into finding alternative energy sources and promoting renewables, perhaps this is a good part of the reason.

" if it only costs $25 a barrel to produce..."

 

Where does the $25 come from?

Another way to look at it,

After the capital costs of development have been spent, it may take 1/2 or 3/4 of a barrel of oil to heat up the shale oil to get 1 barrel of crude.

 

The point is, the higher the oil price, the more it will cost to heat the raw mineral to extract shale oil

The point is, the higher the oil price, the more it will cost to heat the raw mineral to extract shale oil

 

For example, one Utah-based company says it can extract the oil for as little as $10 a barrel. In fact dozens of companies have stepped forward with similar claims. With oil prices approaching $70 a barrel – these are pretty significant breakthroughs.

 

For the past 5 years this company has been tucked away deep in the Green River Formation – pumping out shale oil. However, it began laboratory testing back in 1981 – so they have more than 25 years of research under their belt.

 

Their process can extract oil for as little as $25 a barrel. With oil prices hovering around $70 a barrel, this company stands to make a fortune.

 

They’ve even submitted the largest patent application in history for their drilling process, so it will be protected for the next 20 years.

 

These two quotes from the above looong post show the projected production costs. If these turn out to be accurate and the reserves are as high as claimed it could completely change the dynamics of energy sources and production. Having said that, I just read your post on energy efficient cars, this would be another big step forward and one I would like to see given the backing and resources it deserves.

If it works, great.

But I prefer the Canadian Oil Sands

 

Don Coxe thinks this will be THE STORY of the year...

 

Canadian Oil sands have great long term potential, but there may be a sudden bidding war if the SEC allows Major Oil companies to value Oil Sands reserves in a preferred way.

Oil sands are one of the few cheap long-lifed reserves left

 

How much oil is in Alberta's oil sands deposits?

 

Alberta's three oil sand deposits ?Athabasca, Cold Lake, and Peace River ?contain resources that could supply Canada's energy needs for more than 475 years, or total world needs for up to 15 years. The production potential of all the oil sand deposits could be as high as 2.5 trillion barrels of bitumen (five times more than the conventional oil reserves in Saudi Arabia). The Athabasca deposit is twice the size of Lake Ontario.

 

- -

Tar sands are impregnated sands that yield mixtures of liquid hydrocarbon and require further processing other than mechanical blending before becoming finished petroleum products. Until recently Alberta's bitumen deposits were known as tar sands but are now called oil sands. ... By 2005, oil sands production is expected to represent 50% of Canada's total crude oil output and 10% of North American production. Although tar sands occur in more than 70 countries, the two largest are Canada and Venezuela, with the bulk being found in four different regions of Alberta, Canada: areas of Athabasca, Wabasha, Cold Lake and Peace River. The sum of these covers an area of nearly 77,000 km2. In fact, the reserve that is deemed to be technologically retrievable today is estimated at 280-300Gb (billion barrels). This is larger than the Saudi Arabia oil reserves, which are estimated at 240Gb. The total reserves for Alberta, including oil not recoverable using current technology, are estimated at 1,700- 2,500Gb.

One thing that seems to be coming out of all this is that there are still huge untapped supplies of oil and technology is rapidly finding ways to tap them. This makes me wonder if the current price of oil is sustainable. I can see the short term price continuing to rise quite a bit, particularly with the potential of mid east turmoil, terrorism, natural disastors etc. but medium term there seems to be potential for the price to revert to a much lower figure.

 

Excuse the skepticism but the fact the USA has such vast potential reserves does make me doubt that much effort will be made to find ways to reduce dependancy or find suitable alternatives.

The US may have to chase these unconventional sources,

 

while China and India bid up the price of Crude Oil in the world markets

 

This will be especially likely if the Dollar collapses

I am sceptical of oil shale at this point. Shell have been out in Colorado for years trying to make it work. Most of the stuff is deep underground, and can only be extracted using in-situ methods which are very energy-intensive. If you don't get a net energy return there's no point.

 

That newsletter may be referring to companies which are addressing the near-surface "ore", of which is there is much less, but this has been extracted successfully in previous times of high oil prices.

 

Aside from all that though, the US has precisely no need to try and do this anyway. They have gazillions of tonnes of easy accessible coal which can be made into oil using proven processes, it's just a matter of letting it happen.

Thanks for the reply mattybuoy. But, is this making oil out of coal using proven processes a cheap process? If it is, why aren't they doing it already?

You are correct. CTL (Coal To Liquids) is not cheap. Cost estimates range from $20 to $60 a barrel. However, this is not why the US is not doing it. That's down to environmental politics, as far as I can tell. There are some cautious initiatives though.

 

The Australians are more pragmatic. I believe we are at the beginning of a massive CTL boom over there. See my post regarding Linc Energy on this forum.

Pal, et. al.,

 

Anyone who thinks oil shale can be developed under a "global warming" cloud is, in a word, LOONY. And this is true irrespective of al Qaeda's intentions, the real extent of Saudi oil resources, drilling in ANWR, or deposits of anyone or located anywhere else

 

Now if you're willing to be ruled by real science, you might have a go at flogging projects and technologies. In other words, think GREEN, as in chlorophyl, as in keeping the rainforests happy by supplying them with the fertilizer/ingredient they require, carbon dioxide. Which most of you all learned the importance of by age 10 or so.

 

However, if you're a follower of that great chief scientist of the global warming movement, eGore, then you deserve to lose your money. Look at the other technology development he claims to have presided over, the internet, and tell me again why you are still listening to him.

 

Once you've cleared that hurdle, then one thing you will need to decide on for the deposit you might be interested in is in-situ or above ground processing. It is not my purpose with this posting to enter the long discussion, already begun on this thread, of these choices. Suffice to say above ground processing will not succeed until one can step beyond the 8-10,000 BPSD unit size. Until then, the expense of the amount of steel and concrete required to erect such units will pretty much track oil price, and you will never get in front of the curve. And thus you will always be telling your investors that the project will not be a paying proposition "until oil price rises another $20/bbl".

 

There were promising developments of stepping over that boundary among a couple of the projects abandoned back in the early 1980's, and these threads would need to be reopened. Stay tuned, there may be further news on such possibilities come out of the next oil shale conference in Golden, Colorado, to be held in October.
