LINKS SUGGESTED BY A REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR

John,

Here is an article that discussed Canadian concerns about blowout in the high Arctic off-shore environment and how difficult it would be to kill a blowout in a single season. Thought you might find it interesting. I don’t think US regulators are as tough on this matter as the Canadians are.

Don’t know if you saw this or not. These gas fields could contain as much as 7 trillion cu. meters of gas (220 trillion cu. ft.of gas.)That is equivalent to about 60% of total US reserves, and about four times as much as the new giant shale gas discovery in Canada. read more

Message to Shell HR EVP, Upstream Americas: Wake Up Culpepper, start listening for a change!
