Boy, I would much rather deal with them than the middle east.
At least the Aussies drink beer and eat pork.

As if the middle east is not unstable enough, imagine what those Saudi camel jockeys are going to do when the value of their assests are deflated by new global supplies? (I sort of shed a tear, when I think of it)
You just got to love free market macroeconomics !

An unfortunate aside here is that the green movement sometimes holds a great deal of power in the Aussie Senate.
Hopefully, with a treasure trove the size of this one, greenies will be told to take a flying whatever.

Encouraging news from a friendly nation. Cheers for the Aussies!

I suspect that we're only beginning to see the vast oil sourced that will be uncovered now that horizontal drilling and fracking are common methods of drilling for oil. In a decade, Arab oil will only be an afterthought.

Excellent. Between what we’re doing here and the Aussies, it should hurt the Saudis. Less money for funding terrorism, mosques here, etc.

I have mixed feelings about Middle East OPEC nations being financially ruined by cheap global oil prices.
Schadenfreude is one thing. Revolt of the peasantry into Jihadism is another.
