The Kalifornia greenie weenies will never stand for it.
imho the next monster oil plays will be in the permian basin of west texas. there are a couple of major oil fields like the wolfenberry cline shale wolfcamp and a couple smaller ones. Any one of the majors there — is bigger than eagle ford or baaken. Unlike california, they’ve cracked the code there and completed the testing and hooked up most of the piping to the coast. In a year or two the numbers from there are just going to explode.
