Franco the shale wells are expensive but they are not slowing down At 40 million feet of gas a day they can afford them. I bank a company that trucks frac sand and I can keep up with their truck needs and they currently have 400 trucks running and the backlog on these wells is because they can't get sand to complete them.
Drilling for oil that can be refined into gasoline is what the American people need!
The largest oil field fabricator in the world is located in New Iberia, la. They are still laying people off because of "no new permits being issued". The suppliers are also laying folks off because Obama is trying to punish the oil companies when in reality, he is punishing the workers as drilling is being moved to other countries by the oil companies.

Why are you fighting this arguement. This is positive and good for americans. Now it does have its downside. A bunch more yankees are going to move down here, but that was not all bad back in the 80s. They have good looking women up there.
What major oil company is going to want to invest in drilling in a country with falkey government? For the same reason oil companies are moving their corporate HQ out of the USA and to Dubai. They know that the Dems are hostile to oil production!
1) engineers to design efficient, sexy, high-perfromance CNG powered cars
2) engineers to design safe, efficient, eco-friendly ways to extract all that natural gas ya'll are sittin on down there.
3) campaign and lobby finance reform to limit the power of oil companies to squash #1 and #2 above.
God Bless PFC Jamie Harkness. The US Army's newest PFC, but still our neighbor's little girl!
You are comparing apples to oranges...... oil rig workers make real money..... most of the natural gas workers are making barely above minimum wage. Most are paid labor, and truck drivers........ no comparison at all to the deep water oil industry. Dont get me wrong, here in PA, natural gas exploration IS providing jobs. Just not the same caliber of personnel..... sorry.
