https://mocomi.com/ presents: Where do we get oil from? The Earth’s surface, millions of years ago, was covered with more water than what it has today and living in this were billions of tiny plants and animals. When these plants and animals died, they fell to the ocean floor and piled up. Sand from eroding rocks and mud covered them up. These layers of sand and mud were heavy and this weight turned them into sedimentary rocks. Heat from the earth and the weight of the rocks caused the dead plants and animals to compress into oil. Once the oil is formed, it slowly moves up through pores in the rocks. However in some cases, rocks without any pores leaves oil trapped underground. Oil is found in different parts of the world. The places where oil is extracted are called oil fields. More than half of the world’s oil is produced in the Middle East. To get to the oil, a company must first drill down to it. A rig is set up to support the drill. Then a well is drilled into the ground until the oil is reached. If the oilfield is in the sea, then offshore rigs are used. Watch this interesting video on how oil is formed from fossils which are compressed under the ocean floor.

DAILY DOSE | Israel, Cyprus and Greece have reached an agreement on a gas pipeline to supply Europe. What does this mean for Israel's European relations and its economy? Former Israeli Ambassador to Greece Arye Mekel analyzes. Story: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday hosted his Greek and Cypriot counterparts for a trilateral summit where, according to local media reports from Cyprus, the leaders have already reached an agreement on the EastMed gas pipeline. Netanyahu, Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades, and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras have agreed to move forward with plans to lay a gas pipeline connecting Israel and Europe, according to the Cyprus News Agency (CNA). US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman made an appearance at the summit where he made a statement in support of the trilateral initiative. The 'USA fully supports the project that aims to diversify energy sources in the area and ensure energy security in Europe,' Friedman said. The meeting, held at the National Cyber Directorate and Carasso Science Park in the southern city of Beersheba, is the fifth of its kind. 'Tomorrow I will again host our annual summit meeting with Greece and Cyprus. We want to lay a gas pipeline from Israel to Cyprus, Crete, [mainland] Greece, Italy and [the rest of] Europe. This will turn Israel into a player in the global energy field; all signs indicate that it could run forward. This will, of course, strengthen our diplomatic capability which, to the same extent, of course, is also strengthening the economy and the military, because they are all related,' Netanyahu said on Wednesday while speaking at the Globes Business conference. The EastMed project has received 35 million euros (approximately 40 million dollars) from the European Commision as a 'Project of Common Interest,' though the official trilateral agreement is still subject to the commission’s approval before the project can be implemented, according to the CNA report. The future pipeline is reportedly supposed carry 10 billion cubic meters (bcm) of natural gas to Greece from the Eastern Mediterranean (approximately 1,900 kilometers) where it will then link to Italy’s Poseidon pipeline. The leaders will also 'hold bilateral meetings, sign agreements on cyber defense, civilian space-related issues and meteorological cooperation, and will issue joint statements to the media,' according to a statement from Netanyahu’s office.In November, European media outlets reported that the three countries and Italy had closed a deal, though this was never officially confirmed. Israel has limited natural resources but in the past few years it has discovered major gas fields off its coast and is building the infrastructure needed to tap them.Israel hopes its gas reserves will give the country energy independence and that becoming a supplier to Europe will forge strategic ties within the region.Neighboring Egypt is also reportedly looking to use its vast, newly tapped undersea gas reserves to establish itself as a key energy exporter and revive its flagging economy. Encouraged by the discovery of the Mediterranean gas fields, Cairo has in recent months signed deals with Israel, Cyprus and Greece as well.

Please Help Me To 100,000 Sub : American Patriot : https://bit.ly/2yOF8Xi SUB TO BACKUP CHANNEL HERE : https://bit.ly/2DuahBo BREAKING: Game-changer for U.S. Oil Independence Found in West Texas! The U.S. oil boom and move towards U.S. Oil independence under the Trump presidency just scored another win. On Thursday, the United States Department of Interiors announced that they have just found the largest oil and gas resource ever discovered. KWTX reported that the U.S. Geological Survey has determined that a vast shale field in West Texas and New Mexico could yield 46.3 billion barrels of oil, 281 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and 20 billion barrels of natural gas liquids, the agency said in a press release Thursday. The Wolfcamp Shale and overlying Bone Spring Formation in the Delaware Basin portion of Permian Basin in West Texas and New Mexico has the largest continuous oil and gas resource potential ever assessed, the USGS said. “Christmas came a few weeks early this year,” said U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. ✔@GroverNorquist USGeological Survey Identifies Largest Continuous Oil/Gas Resource Potential Ever Assessed Estimates 46.3 Billion Barrels of Oil, 281 Trillion Cubic feet of Natural Gas, and 20 Billion Barrels of Natural Gas Liquids in Texas & New Mexico’s Wolfcamp Shale & Bone Spring Formation The U.S. Department of the Interior announced Thursday the Permian Basin’s Wolfcamp shale and Bone Spring formation spanning parts of West Texas and eastern New Mexico hold the largest potential oil and gas resources ever discovered. Federal surveyors note the Bone Spring plays could offer roughly seven times the amount of oil as the Bakken shale in North Dakota. In a new assessment, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) estimated these untapped regions in the Delaware Basin of the Permian contained 46.3 billion barrels of oil, 281 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and 20 billion barrels of natural gas liquids, more than two times larger than its 2016 assessment of the Wolfcamp shale play in the Permian’s Midland Basin. “Christmas came a few weeks early this year,” said U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke in a prepared statement. “American strength flows from American energy, and as it turns out, we have a lot of American energy.” Zinke added, “Before this assessment came down, I was bullish on oil and gas production in the United States. Now, I know for a fact that American energy dominance is within our grasp as a nation.” The Delaware Basin estimate is for continuous (unconventional) oil comprised of undiscovered and technically recoverable resources, according to the USGS. This means, typically they can extract the liquids through slant drilling and hydraulic fracturing (fracking). Currently, energy companies are producing oil in the region using traditional vertical well technology and horizontal drilling, as well as fracking. “In the 1980’s, during my time in the petroleum industry, the Permian and similar mature basins were not considered viable for producing large new recoverable resources,” said USGS Director Dr. Jim Reilly. “Today, thanks to advances in technology, the Permian Basin continues to impress in terms of resource potential.” d other geologic formations in West Texas and southeastern New Mexico. The Delaware consists of roughly 10,000 square miles that span five Texas counties and three New Mexico counties. It is one of the most productive areas for oil and gas in the nation.

The Douglas oil field was discovered in 1990, and production commenced in 1996. Now operated by Eni, the complex consists of the wellhead platform, which drills into the seabed, a processing platform, which separates oil, gas and water, and thirdly an accommodation platform, which is composed of living quarters for the crew. This accommodation module was formerly the Morecambe Flame jack-up drilling rig. The Douglas Complex is also the control hub for other platforms in the area, and provides power for all platforms. It also offers recreational, catering and medical facilities for up to 80 personnel. Oil from the Lennox, Hamilton, and Hamilton North unmanned satellite platforms is received and blended at the complex.Fluids from the Lennox installation via the gas pipeline are treated on the Douglas installation in the 3-phase (oil, gas and produced water) Lennox Production Separator. Following separation, gas flows to the Offgas Compressor suction manifold. Oil is directed to the Oil Stripper where the liquid is stripped of sour gas using a counter-current flow of stripping gas. Produced water from the separator is directed to the Produced Water Hydrocyclones where hydrocarbon liquids are removed prior to overboard disposal. Well fluids from the Douglas Wellhead tower are treated in the 3-phase Douglas Production Separator. Gas flows to the Offgas Compressor suction manifold and hydrocarbon liquids are directed to the Oil Stripper, and water to hydrocyclones as described above. Oil from the Oil Stripper is pumped by the Oil Transfer Pumps via Fiscal metering to the Main Oil Transfer Pumps to tanker loading. Gas from the Oil Stripper is compressed and sent to the Offgas Compressor.Gas is sent through a pipeline 33.5-kilometre (20.8 mi) long to a processing plant at Point of Ayr, in Flintshire, North Wales. After processing, almost the entire output is sold to E.ON to fire the combined cycle gas turbine power station at Connah's Quay, on Deeside, in Flintshire. Oil produced in Liverpool Bay is sent through another pipeline, 17 km long, to the Offshore Storage Installation, a permanently anchored barge which acts as a floating oil terminal, capable of holding 870 thousand barrels (~1.2×10^5 t) of oil. From the floating terminal oil is transferred to tankers approximately once every month.

NEWS DESK | Israel's navy just wrapped up maritime exercises to defend one of the country's most vital economic assets — the Leviathan gas field platform. Could Hezbollah pose a serious threat to its existence, though? Our Daniel Tsemach has the story. Story: The IDF navy just wrapped up its most complicated exercise in nearly 20 years. They’re simulating an enemy attack on highly coveted natural gas fields — the Israeli navy — an exercise including missiles fired from four ships simultaneously at an old cargo freighter acting as an enemy vessel. ‘This type of exercise is crucial to the next mission — in the IDF, in between military campaigns, and of course in the next war as well,’ explains navy drill commander Boris Schuster. Israel's strategic waters and assets are of crucial importance to the country's economy and to the citizens' personal security. Terror groups like Hamas and Hezbollah have threatened to strike the platforms in the past and have even attempted to. The Israeli military has said it knows both groups are trying to improve their capabilities in order to strike them. Nevertheless, Israel is moving forward with its largest energy project in history. The same day the drill came to a close, Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived at a newly inaugurated platform. ‘Completion of the Leviathan gas rig and gas flow from this field later this year is a critical component in Israel's strategic strength, in its energy strength, its economic strength, its political strength,’ Netanyahu proclaimed as the opening ceremony. But the process of utilizing the gas fields has not been simple. Israel has come under fire from its northern neighbor in Lebanon, where Hezbollah has its stronghold, who suggests the fields are in its territory. Hezbollah has a weapons arsenal more advanced than that of the Gaza-ruling Hamas group, and thus, Israel fears that if Hezbollah uses the Russian-made Yakhont shore-to-sea guided missile, it could strike one of Israel's most vital assets.

The Border Service of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation decided to protect drilling rigs of Chernomorneftegaz (Black Sea oil and gas company). The site is situated in the shelf area of the Black Sea and was owned by the Ukrainian national oil and gas company Naftohaz till spring 2014. Yesterday a ship that belongs to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, approached a self-lifting floating drilling rig Taurida. The captain demanded the Russian colleagues to provide data on the crew and purpose of the drilling rig location in the area, but received no desired result. According to the press service of the Russian Border Service, a patrol vessel 'Ametist' was sent into the area after the incident 'in order to provide security of the Taurida drilling rig crew, as well as to protect and guard economic interests of the Russian Federation'.

This principally involves preparing the bottom of the hole to the required specifications, running in the production tubing and its associated down hole tools as well as perforating and stimulating as required. Sometimes, the process of running in and cementing the casing is also included. After a well has been drilled, should the drilling fluids be removed, the well would eventually close in upon itself. Casing ensures that this will not happen while also protecting the wellstream from outside incumbents, like water or sand.

Maxime Daigle worked in the oil industry for seven years but is now protesting against further development of the shale gas sector See also "Say No to Shale Gas June 30, 2011, Rexton, New Brunswick, Part 2"- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRYHCYS18tQ#t=1m44s http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/story/2011/12/01/nb-daigle-shale-gas-concern-913.html Ex-oil worker blasts shale gas industry CBC News Posted: Dec 2, 2011 7:00 AM AT Last Updated: Dec 2, 2011 2:36 PM AT Maxime Daigle worked on oil and gas rigs for seven years before quitting to devote his life to protesting what he believes are the perils of shale gas drilling. Daigle spent his career in the oil and gas sector working in operations located in Alberta, British Columbia and across the United States. He started as a roughneck and worked his way up to drilling foreman. But he soon concluded the world's dependency on oil was killing the planet and he left the industry. "We all have our hands dirty on it. It's just an awakening I went through that made me realize what I was doing was wrong and that I needed to try and make a difference," he said. So Daigle moved back home to New Brunswick and went back to school to study electrical engineering with a focus on renewable energy. Daigle is one of the many citizens that are speaking out over fears about the shale gas industry. There are nine companies that currently have 71 different leases to explore for shale gas. While the industry is in its infancy, it has turned into a high-profile political issue for Premier David Alward's government. The Progressive Conservative government ushered in a new set of regulations in the summer that were intended to quiet the growing chorus of criticism against the industry. Instead, there were more protests and some mining companies faced blockades from citizens unhappy with their presence. The Alward government has promised that it will bring in a new Environmental Protection Plan in the spring. And Alward has committed, that if the shale gas industry is to have a future in New Brunswick, the provincial government will ensure it enforces the strictest regulations on the continent. Regulations are not enough But tough regulations are going to help save rural landscapes from mining problems, according to Daigle. "Some rig managers will make you contain contamination and pick up everything at the surface. But I've seen many times where you're told just to cover it with dirt, fresh dirt so nobody sees it," he said. The former oil and gas worker said he saw the negative impact that drilling was having on the environment as he moved higher up the corporate ladder. "I've seen enough that I know a fair amount of what can and can't be done right with regulations," he said. Daigle also tells a story about a time when a crew he was working with hit an abnormally large gas pocket that nearly blew up the well. He said the crew pumped thousands of barrels of toxic drilling fluid down the well in an effort to contain it. However, that fluid found its way back to the surface through an unforeseen fracture. "After four or five days of doing this, these farmers came on location. And they asked what was that black stuff that was coming into the river," Daigle said. "And when we were wondering why we couldn't regain circulation of that well, this was the reason. Everything was going up into the river." Environmental concerns Daigle's concerns aren't new. Many opponents to shale gas wells have often pointed to high-profile problems in the United States where local water wells were contaminated or there was an upward spike in air pollution. Those criticisms aren't being met without resistance from the natural gas industry. Three shale gas executives and one industry official wrote in separate opinion articles this week for CBC News that protecting the environment is a top priority for them. Two companies -- Corridor Resources and Contact Exploration -- have track records of working in New Brunswick. And SWN Resources Canada, which is currently examining results from recent seismic tests, has said it will not attempt to extract shale gas if it cannot protect the environment. Some in the scientific community have also downplayed some of the concerns raised by the anti-shale gas protesters. Adrian Park, a geologist at the University of New Brunswick, has said problems won't come about if shale gas mining is done the right way. Park said he believes the industry can mine for shale gas and protect the environment, if the proper regulations are in place. "Once you go more than 200 metres down, the pressure caused by the weight of overlying rock actually seals natural fissures and fractures and if you're hydro-fracking deeper than that, then that natural permeable barrier should protect your surface water," he said.

In 2008 (though it actually started much earlier), U.S. companies that had been combining hydraulic fracturing with horizontal drilling techniques hit pay dirt. Between 2005 and 2015, the United States’ marketed natural gas production more than doubled! It also completely eliminated our reliance on foreign natural gas for energy.

Nigeria may sit atop one of the largest oil reserves in the world, but the majority of the Nigerian people have seen little benefit from the multibillion-dollar industry. The government and global energy companies have been exploiting the resource for years, bringing poverty, pollution, and violence to the Niger Delta. And now the local militias fighting for oil control have made conditions even worse. Caught in the conflict are Nigerian citizens involved in the illegal oil market simply for survival. Oil theft is rampant, and the booming black market has transnational oil and gas consultants concerned about the effects on global oil markets. The government isn't too happy about it either. “All the oil that is sold around here, the government calls illegally refined products,” local oil businessman Don Wizaro told VICE News. And when the Nigerian military raids illegal oil operations, they slash containers, releasing oil into waterways, contaminating what the main source of fishing, agriculture, and drinking water. As the government continues its assault on illegal refineries and barges carrying stolen oil, local militias are retaliating. And one of the most notorious militias is the Niger Delta Avengers. They attack pipelines and infrastructure, significantly affecting both the environment and the economy. VICE correspondent Gianna Toboni heads to the heart of Nigeria's oil production to witness firsthand the fight over the control of oil in the Niger Delta.

(formerly The British Petroleum Company plc and BP Amoco plc) is a British multinational oil and gas company headquartered in London, England. It is one of the world's seven oil and gas "supermajors", whose performance in 2012 made it the world's sixth-largest oil and gas company, the sixth-largest energy company by market capitalization and the company with the world's 12th-largest revenue (turnover). It is a vertically integrated company operating in all areas of the oil and gas industry, including exploration and production, refining, distribution and marketing, petrochemicals, power generation and trading. It also has renewable energy interests in biofuels and wind power. As of 31 December 2017, BP had operations in 70 countries worldwide, produced around 3.6 million barrels per day (570,000 m3/d) of oil equivalent, and had total proved reserves of 18.441 billion barrels (2.9319×109 m3) of oil equivalent. The company has around 18,300 service stations worldwide. Its largest division is BP America in the United States. In Russia, BP owns a 19.75% stake in Rosneft, the world's largest publicly traded oil and gas company by hydrocarbon reserves and production. BP has a primary listing on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index. It has secondary listings on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange. BP's origins date back to the founding of the Anglo-Persian Oil Company in 1908, established as a subsidiary of Burmah Oil Company to exploit oil discoveries in Iran. In 1935, it became the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company and in 1954 British Petroleum. In 1959, the company expanded beyond the Middle East to Alaska and it was one of the first companies to strike oil in the North Sea. British Petroleum acquired majority control of Standard Oil of Ohio in 1978. Formerly majority state-owned, the British government privatised the company in stages between 1979 and 1987. British Petroleum merged with Amoco in 1998, becoming BP Amoco plc, and acquired ARCO and Burmah Castrol in 2000, becoming BP plc in 2001. From 2003 to 2013, BP was a partner in the TNK-BP joint venture in Russ ...

The upstream sector includes searching for potential underground or underwater crude oil and natural gas fields, drilling exploratory wells, and subsequently drilling and operating the wells that recover and bring the crude oil or raw natural gas to the surface.Upstream Industry has traditionally experienced the highest number of Mergers, Acquisitions and Divestitures. M&A activity for upstream oil and gas deals in 2012 totaled $254 billion in 679 deals. A large chunk of this M&A, 33% in 2012, was driven by the unconventional/shale boom especially in the US followed by the Russian Federation and Canada. The aggregate value of Upstream E&P assets available for sale (Deals in Play) reached a record-high of $135 billion in Q3-2013. The value of Deals in Play doubled from $46 billion in 2009 to $90 billion in 2010. With ongoing M&A activity the level remained almost the same reaching $85 billion in Dec-2012. However, the first half of 2013 saw approximately $48 billion of net new assets coming on the market. Remarkably, the total value of Deals in Play in Q3-2013 nearly tripled over 2009 at $46 billion, in less than four years.

It is home to one of the world's oldest petroleum industries, with its first crude oil exports dating back to 1853. Today, the country is one of the major natural gas producers in the Asian continent. Decades of isolation, sanctions, a lack of technical capacity, opaque government policies and insufficient investment has impeded the country's efforts to develop an upstream hydrocarbon sector. Recent but slow political reform has led the international community to ease sanctions on Burma, giving rise to hopes of greater investment and economic growth.

energyNOW! Spotlight: Fracking controversy The New York Times this week put hydraulic fracturing on the front natural-gas burner of American households by running the first of several articles in an investigative series. This drilling technique could unlock 100 years' supply of a lower-carbon and domestic energy source that is broadly considered to be necessary. But the Times' months-long dive through 30,000 previously unreleased documents also suggests that industry and government have failed to ensure health and environmental safety keep pace with the industry's explosive growth. Ian Urbina, the Times reporter who uncovered the document cache and penned the series, sits down with energyNOW! to explain water contamination concerns raised by the natural gas boom - and the government's questionable record of monitoring water for toxins and radioactivity. Industry spokespeople maintain that most fracking wastewater is reused, and sets as its goal "100 percent recycling, zero discharge" of produced water. Scientists diverge on whether or how drilling is linked to water contamination concerns, and how to accurately test water. The Mix: Federal Government's Role in Fracking Safety The controversy over hydraulic fracturing has spilled into the halls of Congress. Republican lawmakers have urged state-level oversight and industry self-regulation to preserve jobs and energy independence. Democratic legislators called for increased industry oversight and regulation to protect health and the environment. energyNOW! anchor Thalia Assuras moderates a heated debate between Congressmen Rush Holt (D-NJ) and Michael Burgess (R-TX) about the government's role in regulating shale gas development, water safety and environmental health. Burgess' district rests on Texas' Barnett Shale, which led the way for U.S. shale development. Holt represents central New Jersey and is deeply involved in energy and environmental issues. Each district has a distinct geology and each legislator has ...

Advocates for keeping fossil fuels in the ground have gathered enough signatures to provide a ballot choice for voters to increase setbacks for oil derricks and fracking pads from 500 feet to 2,500 feet. This would likely result in a curtailment of Colorado oil and gas production. A major political battle is likely to ensue. The success of this initiative provides a window into the larger choices we face as human caused climate change impacts start to ramp up.

This event was held January 30, 2014 at the Greenwood Inn & Suites in Corner Brook, NL. Despite the dangers posed by global warming, humanity's demand for fossil energy keeps growing. In both the developed and developing worlds, the demand keeps growing for fuel used in transportation, heating and cooling, cooking, manufacturing and other needs. Newly-discovered shale oil and shale gas deposits are lessening the developed world's dependence on petroleum from volatile geopolitical regions. The technology of releasing oil and gas from shale deposits is known as hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking". While the economic benefits of fracking are well known, there exists much controversy over its social and environmental costs. Fracking has been blamed for poisoning the groundwater, polluting the surface water and the air around wells, siphoning scarce drinking water during the drilling process, and even causing earthquakes. What are the facts about fracking? How does it work and what are the impacts on the earth's crust and on groundwater? What are the risks to surface water and the ambient air? Are the risks different between shale oil and shale gas? Are there mitigating factors that might make fracking safer for humans and the environment? What is the role of government in regulating fracking? These questions and more will be addressed at a public forum featuring expert guest speakers. Panelists Dr. Maurice Dusseault is a professor of earth and environmental sciences at the University of Waterloo. He started teaching in Alberta in 1977 and came to Waterloo in 1982 as Professor of Geological Engineering, teaching rock mechanics, fossil fuel production methods, and related areas. He carries out research in geomechanics, oil production, and deep waste disposal. Current interests include sequestration, hydraulic fracturing, leaky wellbores, and THMC coupling issues. He publishes widely (500 full text articles) and works with industry as a professional instructor. Maurice serves on the Scientific Advisory Council of the New Brunswick Energy Institute, as science advisor to the Government of Alberta, and on the Shale Gas Environmental Impacts Panel of the Council of Canadian Academies. Dr. Lesley James is an assistant professor in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Memorial University. Her research interests focus on sustainable oil production by increasing oil recovery rates through enhanced oil recovery (EOR). Currently, her focus is on maximizing recovery from offshore Newfoundland and Labrador oil and gas fields. Working as the Chevron Chair in Petroleum Engineering at Memorial, Dr. James is in the process of developing a world class enhanced oil recovery laboratory, which will allow for fundamental and applied research and development in the area of enhanced and improved oil recovery. Dr. James has worked on a Women in Engineering Task Force and has presented research on strategies to increase the participation of women in engineering and oil and gas. Dr. James regularly promotes science and engineering through work with groups such as Let's Talk Science, Shad Valley, Techsploration, Mining in Society, the Women in Science and Engineering Student Summer Employment Program (WISE-SSEP), Stiletto's to Steel Toes, the Student Society of Petroleum Engineers, and GO ENG Girl. This event is being presented in conjunction with the Environmental Policy Institute, Grenfell Campus.

Jether Blaise back with a vengeance, covering the impact the abundance of natural gas has been having on the chemical industry, and the innovations in process technologies that it has spawned. I look at the contrast between processing petroleum as a chemical feedstock vs. processing natural gas as such. Because of the steep energy costs associated with steam reforming of natural gas, and the Fischer Tropsch process, new approaches have been sought out by chemical engineers to lower the costs of producing syngas, or sidestepping that route altogether. Also, we take a look at a promising technology for reducing the water footprint of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, and finish up with a look at China's largest propane dehydrogenation facility.

How does hydraulic fracturing work? Can chemicals in fracturing fluid contaminate fresh water supplies? Can we recycle all the waste water and other fluids from fracturing? What can prevent methane escaping into the atmosphere? Can fracturing cause earthquakes? How might focusing on the real risks shift the regulatory discussion? The Monterey Shale deposit in California is estimated to hold 15.4 billion barrels of oil, making it the largest shale deposit in the U.S. Since 2011, 1,250+ wells have been drilled and completed using hydraulic fracturing. Earlier this year, Governor Brown signed into law the controversial bill SB4 that allows oil and gas companies to continue with fracking in California, but under tight regulation. Critics worry about water and air pollution and the worsening effects on global warming, while the oil and gas industry touts the benefits that hydraulic fracturing will bring to the California economy. So - is this a good thing or a bad thing? Come hear George King describe the real risks of hydraulic fracturing so that we can steer the conversation in the right direction. George E. King is a registered professional engineer in multiple states with 42 years of worldwide oil and gas industry experience in most aspects of well construction and failure analysis. His work has focused on fracturing, well construction risk analysis, unconventional formations, sand control, and perforating. George holds a Chemistry degree from Oklahoma State University and a BS in Chemical Engineering and an MS in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Tulsa. He was awarded the 2012 Engineer of the Year from the Texas Society of Professional Engineers and the 2004 Society of Petroleum Engineers Production Operations Award. He has written 68 technical papers, journal articles and book chapters.

A study published in April says drilling for oil and gas in Texas has likely contributed to increasing seismic activity there in recent years. Follow Sebastian Martinez: http://www.twitter.com/sebastiansings See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: A recent report says hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is likely responsible for a dramatic uptick in Texas earthquakes. A CNN report Sunday focuses on Irving, Texas, situated between Dallas and Ft. Worth. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, there have been close to 40 quakes in the area since the beginning of the year. A study published in April from researchers at Southern Methodist University points to oil and gas industry activity — specifically hydraulic fracturing and the disposal of wastewater — as a likely cause of recent quakes. (Video via City of Irving) There's been a sharp upswing in seismic activity in recent years. According to The Dallas Morning News, before 2008, there had been two noted earthquakes in north Texas: "Since (2008), North Texas has logged more than 150 quakes of significant magnitude." A magnitude 4 quake shook the region on Friday, followed by a magnitude 2.7 quake the next day. (Video via KXAS) One USGS geophysicist who talked to CNN said while it's possible fracturing activity is responsible, there isn't enough data to place definitive blame: (Video via CBS) "There just isn't enough evidence to support the claim yet in this case. The connection has not been established, but we cannot rule them out. ... We cannot make a correlation with any wells without knowing their history." In the meantime, the drilling isn't expected to slow down. Last week the Texas legislature approved a bill that would prohibit municipal bans on drilling. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has indicated he plans to sign it into law. This video includes images from Getty Images.

Thank you to all of you who came out yesterday to support us in our common cause - to stop natural gas drilling wastewater from entering the Auburn WWTP. Almost 200 people showed up at the rally and city council meeting. Petitions with almost 800 signatures were presented to the Auburn City Council (bringing the total count to about 1,300). We had a great public-to-be-heard session (an hour and 10 minutes long) - with a couple dozen speaking out against taking in this wastewater. BUT, there is cause for concern: • The proposed 2011-2012 Auburn budget reflects $1.2 million on projected revenue from natural gas drilling wastewater. This is odd because plant officials say they are receiving less natural gas drilling wastewater year-after-year (to the tune of $300,000 this year). • Auburn WWTP Director, Vicki Murphy, stated that only two natural gas drilling companies are currently bringing drilling water into the plant - Talisman and Anshutz. Why is the projected income so much in 2012? How much do they expect to take in this upcoming year even amidst current public support for Mayor Quill's proposed moratorium? News clips and articles: WSTM http://www.cnycentral.com/news/story.aspx?list=190255&id=625538 The Citizen http://auburnpub.com/news/local/article_f53b3af4-8d94-11e0-8f0d-001cc4c002e0.html The Post-Standard http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2011/06/protest_group_asks_auburn_to_s.html What is next? Next Thursday at 4:30 pm the city council is having a public hearing on the budget so we are going to address the prospective wastewater income in the budget. We are also going to cite the clause in the permits that state the city reserves the right to stop taking in the gas drilling wastewater. So continue to write letters to the editor, call the city councilors, continue to press them to make the right choice for Auburn and those downstream. Mayor and Councilors office number at City Hall: 315.255.4104 - Let them know that you oppose the practice of taking in natural gas drilling wastewater and they must adopt Mayor Quill's proposed moratorium immediately.

In 2008, Aubrey McClendon was the highest paid Fortune 500 CEO in America, a title he earned taking home $112 million for running Chesapeake Energy. Later dubbed “The Shale King,” he was at the forefront of the oil and gas industry's next boom, made possible by advances in fracking, which broke open fossil fuels from shale formations around the U.S. What was McClendon’s secret? Instead of running a company that aimed to sell oil and gas, he was essentially flipping real estate: acquiring leases to drill on land and then reselling them for five to 10 times more, something McClendon explained was a lot more profitable than “trying to produce gas.” But his story may serve as a cautionary tale for an industry that keeps making big promises on borrowed dimes — while its investors begin losing patience, a trend DeSmog will be investigating in an in-depth series over the coming weeks. From 2008 to 2009, Chesapeake Energy’s stock swung from $64 a share under McClendon to around $17. Today, it's worth just $3 a share — the same price it was in 2000. A visionary when it came to fracking, McClendon perfected the formula of borrowing money to drive the revolution that reshaped American energy markets. An Industry Built on Debt Roughly a decade after McClendon's rise, the Wall Street Journal reported that “energy companies [since 2007] have spent $280 billion more than they generated from operations on shale investments, according to advisory firm Evercore ISI.” As a whole, the American fracking experiment has been a financial disaster for many of its investors, who have been plagued by the industry's heavy borrowing, low returns, and bankruptcies, and the path to becoming profitable is lined with significant potential hurdles. Up to this point, the industry has been drilling the “sweet spots” in the country's major shale formations, reaching the easiest and most valuable oil first. But at the same time energy companies are borrowing more money to drill more wells, the sweet spots are drying up, creating a Catch-22 as more drilling drives more debt. “You have to keep drilling,” David Hughes, a geoscientist and fellow specializing in shale gas and oil production at the Post Carbon Institute, told DeSmog. But he also noted that with most of the sweet spots already drilled, producers are forced to move to less productive areas. The result? “Productivity goes down and the costs remain the same,” he explained. While Hughes understands the industry's rationale for continuing to drill new wells at a loss, he doubts the sustainability of the practice. “I don't think in the long-term they can drill their way out of this,” Hughes told DeSmog. While politicians and the mainstream media tout an American energy “revolution,” it is becoming clear that — like the housing bubble just a few years earlier — the American oil and gas boom spurred by fracking innovations may be one of the largest money-losing endeavors in the nation's history. And it caught up with McClendon. In 2016, the shale king was indicted for rigging bids at drilling lease auctions. He died the very next day in a single car crash, leading to speculation McClendon committed suicide, a rumor impossible to confirm. However, the police chief on the scene noted: “There was plenty of opportunity for him to correct and get back on the roadway and that didn't occur.” The same could be said of the current shale industry. There is plenty of opportunity for these energy companies to correct their path — for example, by linking CEO pay to company profits rather than oil production volumes — but instead they are plowing full-speed ahead with a business model that seems poised for a crash.
