Thankful for oil in USA

There are many things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. One I am truly thankful for is the vast amounts of oil and gas located right under our feet in the USA. Energy independence gives us all more freedom as a nation and makes for a brighter future for our children and grandchildren. We are a blessed nation with hard-working people. All of us at Bakken Energy Services wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving

Petroleum products saves many lives

As many protest the use of fossil fuels they often post their distain using their IPhone, Droid or Laptop. Funny thing, without fossilfuels they would have to IPhone, Droid or Laptop. These devices are main made of plastic which is made from petroleum products.

I am typing in this information on my key board which is made of plastic… so… if I do not like fossil fuels then I guess I would need to make my keyboard from wood our stones.

The plastic sheets they put up to keep them out of the rain are made from petroleum products. Most of the  bottom of their Timberland shoes are made of petroleum. Even their North Face jackets are made of petroleum. They will probably be surprised to know that a plastic bottle is made from the same petrochemical as the fiber we call polyester!

All plastic products, many of the materials used to make the clothes youwear, or the carpet you walk on, plus hundreds of the other products we take forgranted, are made from petrochemicals. As the name implies, a main ingredient inpetrochemicals is oil.

So, for all you protesting the use of fossil fuels, youbetter get used to sending smoke signals since your plastic communicationdevices will be no more. Opps, can’t use make signals,   that would pollute the  air.

Petroleum products save lives, if yuo do not believe this, have them administer your next I V in a goat sack connected by cat gut tubing.

OXY Serious about the Bakken

Occidental Petroleum’s first concerns in the Bakken are  environmental safety, the safety of their
workers and the communities they serve.   Oxy’s assets in North Dakota encompass over
200,000 net acres. Oxy entered the Williston Basin Bakken Formation in 2009. In
December 2010, adding to its existing assets in the Williston Basin, Oxy
purchased an additional  180,000 net acres
that produce from the Bakken Formation and are also prospective in the Three
Forks Formation. These newly acquired assets give Oxy net risked reserve
potential in excess of 250 million barrels of Oil.  Based on Oxy’s current position, they  expect to grow Oxy’s production in the
Williston Basin to at least 30,000 barrels of oil  per day by 2017. The Bakken Energy Service
Team wants to be a part of their growing success.
