As Price of Gas Hits Record, EPA Blocks Oil Drilling in Alaska

EPA Blocks Oil Drilling in Alaska

There are an estimated 27 billion barrels of oil waiting to be tapped in the Arctic Ocean, off the coast of Alaska. But after spending five years and nearly $4 billion, Shell Oil Company has been forced to abandon its efforts to drill for oil in the region.

With gas at $4 per gallon and higher, one might think that more oil would be a good thing. So what’s the road block? The Environmental Protection Agency. Fox News reports that the EPA is withholding necessary air permits because of a one square mile village of 245 people, 70 miles from the off-shore drilling site. From Fox News’ Dan Springer:

The EPA’s appeals board ruled that Shell had not taken into consideration emissions from an ice-breaking vessel when calculating overall greenhouse gas emissions from the project. Environmental groups were thrilled by the ruling.

“What the modeling showed was in communities like Kaktovik, Shell’s drilling would increase air pollution levels close to air quality standards,” said Eric Grafe, Earthjustice’s lead attorney on the case.

Who at the EPA made the decision? Springer writes:

The Environmental Appeals Board has four members: Edward Reich, Charles Sheehan, Kathie Stein and Anna Wolgast. All are registered Democrats and Kathie Stein was an activist attorney for the Environmental Defense Fund. Members are appointed by the EPA administrator.

President Barack Obama said in his weekly address on Saturday that “there’s no silver bullet that can bring down gas prices right away,” but that one thing America can do is pursue “safe and responsible production of oil at home.” Too bad his words and his actions are not one and the same. Aside for the EPA’s decision on Shell, the Obama administration has imposed a months-long moratorium on deepwater offshore drilling that curtailed domestic production and sent some seven drilling rigs elsewhere.

The Heritage Foundation’s Nicolas Loris recommends the following actions for Congress and President Obama if they truly want to expand access to America’s domestic energy supply:

Allow access to domestic reserves. Permitting exploration of reserves in Alaska, Colorado, Wyoming, and federal waters offshore would inject confidence into the market, create jobs, and stimulate the economy. Roll back regulatory burdens on companies. Strapping companies with onerous regulatory processes only hinders access. Litigation opportunities should be limited and the permitting process made more rational. Issue offshore drilling permits. Lifting the de facto moratorium on offshore drilling permits would gain companies access to domestic resources and increase our domestic energy supply.

We got to think of a way to counter the liberal argument that ist so ‘pristine’ and pretty (or something) that we can’t drill in Alaska.

How about “OK we promise to keep 99.99 percent of it “pristine” and we’ll use the billions of follars of profit to do it.

Every time I hear the word “pristine” I want to smack John McLame in the the head.

Show them a picture of the Coastal Plain of ANWR, where the drilling would take place. Pictures of mountains in ANWR are not in the same area.

Note: The drilling in this article is offshore.

The Federal Government has become our enemy.

You know (and the Founders well understood this), when you put a vicious animal to guard your property, you keep an eye on him so he doesn't turn on you. You limit his territory and keep him in a limited, safe place where he can do his job while not turning and threatening you. We have not done this, but instead have allowed this vicious animal to break loose and it is no longer protecting anything but has become a menace to everyone.

The restraints and fences used to contain this useful but potentially dangerous government beast is the U.S. Constitution. We have instead let this beast eat its way through all these Constitutional restraints and barriers until now there is nothing to stop this vicious animal devouring the nation it was appointed to protect.

I received this in yesterday’s email.

Note that it was supposedly written by a Czech.

It says it all.

If we don’t do something now to stop the madness, we deserve to be labeled fools.

QUOTE OF THE CENTURY, MAYBE EVEN THE MILLENIUM
Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand
them. This quote came from the Czech Republic . Someone over there has it
figured out. We have a lot of work to do.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of
entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit
and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary
common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a
man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than
Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of
the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made
him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all,
merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those
who made him their president.”

Democrats , don't believe in the economics of supply and demand, unless it helps them drilling in US would not help the price.

The next statement Middle East unrest is causing higher gas prices with a straight face.

That is why we need wind mills etc, they never address the present prices and what to do.

Its speculators? Yet World oil consumption is at its highest.

As cooperative as we all are, please expect more of the same. We will be pushed until we are knocked down, or decide to fight back. Suppose Obama wins in ‘12. Then what?

Drillers should drill and the citizenry should protect them in so doing. Governors should govern and buck all this rough shod regulation in their states.

yes.

and the mainstream media prints lies.

for example a cartoon in today’s newspaper blames speculators for high oil prices.

there are a significant number of people who prefer to believe lies.

they do not inform themselves and they were coached into socialism in k-12 and college.

As FReeper SJB posted: High oil prices damage the US economy----which is designed to use massive amounts of cheap oil for transporting goods, etc. When the price of oil hikes, it fundamentally changes the dynamics of our economy......

The stunning reality is this: the US has vast reserves of energy ---- offshore oil, natural gas, coal. Oil companies have had tremendous success unlocking big quantities of natural gas from dense shale rock formations in North America. We're talking about TRILLIONS of barrels of oil equivalent in shale natural gas.

Something smells here----producing our own energy resources is being held back by "environment issues?"

We need to alert the PTB that we are onto the gross manipulation by those who want the US to sink trillions in the Mideast......including war profiteers getting rich beyond Croesus with our tax dollars------and by Mideast countries too stupid to govern themselves without US "foreign aid."

If I hear somebody say the Mideast is the cause of high oil prices---I swear I'll scream.

The cost of gas related to Libya is pure crapola. The US gets less than 5% of Libya's oil exports (equals less than 1% of US oil imports). Saudi Arabia's oil exports to the US are a minuscule 15% of total output. Which makes US involvement in Libya and the rest of the Mideast hellholes even more outrageous.

"America is dependent on foreign oil" is a knee-jerk reaction, a bunch of propaganda.......The Big Lie which forced America into invading three ME countries at a cost of trillions of US tax dollars.

The US gets THE BULK of its oil from nearby Canada----which now provides a large percentage of US needs.

Enviro issues are strictly agit-prop.

Employment Prevention Agency. The Politicians are railing about the Debt while the huge Government is strangling the economy. Rather than try and “Fix” the debt in order to continue the insanity the GOP should go after the “Command and Control” structure of the Federal Monster. The GOP is attempting to save the Monster. Not what I voted for.

The EPA is a criminal enterprise masquerading as a government organization. They have conspired with nefarious characters of all stripes in aeffort to destroy what is left of America.

This regime needs to frog-marched into a maximum security prison in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. al-Qaeda poses less of a threat to our liberties.

That’s changing as we type——Canada has vast energy supplies and is increasing supplies of oil to the US. We will soon get the bulk of our oil in our own backyard-—right off the country roads of peaceful, bucolic New England.

Knowledgeable Americans don’t give a fig about antediluvian Mideast hellholes.....some of them too stupid to govern themselves without trillions of US tax dollars.

To get their hands on US tax dollars, they con the US, and propagandize the lie that we are “dependent” on Mideast oil....and that the US cannot access our vast energy supplies b/c of enviro concerns.

These con artists oughta go perform an anatomical impossibility with themselves.

Oil from Canada is already bottlenecked in the limited pipelines and the Obama administration is blocking new pipeline construction.

It will be at least 2 decades before Canada has the production surplus to match what we get from OPEC today.

The red-hot center of the 21st century's gold rush is the western Canadian province of Alberta. Spread under 54,363 square miles of boreal forest -- a little less than the land area of Florida -- lie proven reserves of 174 billion barrels, second only to Saudi Arabia's.

Do you think those fields are magic? That no infrastructure has to be built? That no capital investment in of nearly $100 Billion is needed to get that type of production.

The Keystone XL pipeline has been trying to get approval for year.

Oil in the ground is not oil being supplied. We have plenty of reserves ourselves if we were only allowed access to them.

A few questions if you care to offer an opinion.

Do we have a shortage of available crude today?

Do we have refinery capacity to increase output production? If so, by how much?

Who sets the price of crude?

What is the average supply/storage of crude onhand at any given time? Where would additional supply be stored?

As I see it if there isn’t a shortage of available crude or a shortage of supply of refined product on hand then additional supplies aren’t going to get refined or into the market place. As long as the market is an open market then the speculators will drive the price. What are we going to do with all the reserves in the US? Set a price on what it can be sold for and require it be used only for product in the US?

Do we have a shortage of available crude today?

At current prices? No. Try to price it at $20 and you will have a heck of a shortage. Supply and demand are curves based on price, not a fixed amount.

Do we have refinery capacity to increase output production? If so, by how much?

Do you mean capacity to increase domestic oil production? Sure! We could nearly triple our domestic oil production before reaching our current refinery capacity. We would substitute that imported oil with our domestic oil if we reached that amount.

Who sets the price of crude?

The market. Most oil is not bought and sold over the NY stock exchange. Most oil used in refineries is long term contracts.

What is the average supply/storage of crude onhand at any given time?

The US, outside of the strategic reserve, typically has 20~30 day supply in commercial stocks.

http://eia.doe.gov/dnav/pet/hist/LeafHandler.ashx?n=PET&s=W_EPC0_VSD_NUS_DAYS&f=W

Where would additional supply be stored?

What additional supply? If we increase domestic production, as we have slightly the last couple years, we would reduce imports, as we have.

http://eia.doe.gov/dnav/pet/hist/LeafHandler.ashx?n=PET&s=MCRFPUS2&f=A

http://eia.doe.gov/dnav/pet/hist/LeafHandler.ashx?n=PET&s=MTTIMUS2&f=A

As long as the market is an open market then the speculators will drive the price.

If you believe it is only speculation driving market prices, why is the spot market, which requires taking immediate delivery of the oil bought, at nearly the same price?

Thanks for your responses. I don’t necessarily think it is only speculation driving the price but I don’t see how you reduce the consumer price without price controls on what crude produced in the US can be sold at and specify that it can only be consumed in the US.

Just trying to get a grip on this drill more thing when there are many other factors included in what the final price at the pump becomes.

Look at our natural gas market and ask those same questions as our production has climbed.

We will be a net exporter of Natural Gas in about a decade, in my opinion.

Transportation cost will effect pricing some, but to a limited amount. Which is why WTI which historically is more than Brent has been running about $10 cheaper lately. That is near the limit of the difference. More than that an it can be loaded on rail and ship to be transported to higher priced areas.

Snix is correct. Right now Chicago couldn't invade itself.

The CPD is about 3,000 officers short. Their equipment is mostly broken: squad cars won't run, lights don't work, car batteries are DOA, squad car tires are bald and aways go flat, in car computers don't work, ditto for cameras, and worst and most dangerous of all -- their Personal Radios don't work.

So if there's any invading to be done it would have to be by the 'Amish' and those crazy 'Southern Mennonites'. But neither of those groups like Cold Weather so I think Alberta is safe :-)

But 'series', as to these Four demoncRAT toadies on the EPA whose screwing Shell in Alaska and preventing the drilling. IMHO, in Jan 2013 when WE take back our Country, those four anti-American Marxists need to be lined up against a wall and shot for Treason and Sedition (after a FAIR and speedy trial of course).

And that goes for all the Marxists that Barry infested our government with. Weed them out, aresst them, try them, convict them of Treason and Sedition, and then -- Terminate them with extreme prejudice. And I'd want Cass Sunstein to be the first that's arrested and tried.

Furthermore, their trials and verdicts will be exempt from appellate court review. One trial and that's it. No sitting on Death Row for 30 years. And if the ACLU raises a peep arrest them too for aiding and abetting!

I've about had it.
Time to take the gloves off and deal with these maggots face on, and n-o-w!

Chicago invade Alberta? Chicago couldn't invade itself. They're about 3,000 officers short w/ broken equipment: squad cars won't run, lights don't work, car batteries DOA, squad car tires bald, going flat, car computers don't work, ditto for cameras.........most dangerous of all -- their Personal Radios don't work.

Too bad.........but, hey, Mayor Rahm's got friends allover the place----20,000 of his buddies are in the US at any given time. One post on Facebook and the Rahm Gang's ready to roll. ROTFL.
