They can only draw down 4.4 million barrels/day from the reserves. America uses 23 million barrels/day.

The reserves can only last about a month if they were relied on entirely. Maybe a few months if there was oil coming in from elsewhere.

If things the shortage was this serious, the military would get ALL the reserves and the public would get gas rationing coupons.

Re: WITH THE OIL SPILL LOOK AT WHAT THEY DO NOT TALK ABOUT -- GAS SHORTAGES
i am not an expert about oil rigs, but i have a little info to share. i worked on one in the gulf that belonged to Mexico. i only worked there for about 2 weeks so i don't claim to know everything.
One day we had to abandon the rig because there was a gas leak on a platform upwind of us. I can't imagine rigs being manned if there is oil floating anywhere nearby. i would want to be on the first helo out of there.

Small portion of worldwide oil comes from the gulf at this time. There should not be any shortages. TPTB could play off the spill and say there is a shortage, but of course there wouldn't actually be a shortage.

Well, I guess I will chime in here. Of great interest to me, living in the Northwest, was that right before Katrina gas was up to 3 dollars a gallon. But what has always struck me as weird is that after Katrina they blamed the high gas problems on the storm.(still 3 dollars) What was the reason that it was so high before the storm? The strange thing was that people did not seem to question it.

How can you possibly KNOW what is closed? They were closing oil rigs on May 1. We know that. But we have know idea whatsoever what has been going on since then.
Total blackout. We see some silly white storage shed in the black of night that couldn't withstand a strong rainstorm as the solution to a problem occurring 5,000 feet below sealevel. Are you kidding me? Submarines can only go about 1300 feet and they have 3 inch thick steel hulls. But this tin can is supposed to be able to survive 5,000 feet? A car would be completely crushed by that kind of pressure but that tin roofed piece of shit is supposed to be the answer to our problems. It's just fucking insulting the shit they put out there. They honestly do believe we are fucking morons.

Did anyone else think it was kind of weird that the only people they seemed to be recruiting to "help" with the disaster were Vietnamese? Who knows how much total bullshit has been slung by these assholes, but isn't it likely that if you need to recruit people and you want to keep the entire thing off the record, you have to get people who are totally isolated from the mainstream society? How about a small group foreigners who don't speak English?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 530536

racist. vietnamese are good trustworthy workers, and whatever makes you think they are behind the times or dont speak english. i have never known one who doesnt.

Guess you are the one who is uninformed, but here is a link, maybe you can learn something.

[link to www.fossil.energy.gov]

When Katrina closed the Gulf and the offshore rigs, they had to tap into the strategic oil reserves and there were gas shortages.

Almost all of the hubs for transporting gas are in the Gulf.
So are all of the refineries.

They can only draw down 4.4 million barrels/day from the reserves. America uses 23 million barrels/day.

The reserves can only last about a month if they were relied on entirely. Maybe a few months if there was oil coming in from elsewhere.

I think by the end of Summer the country should just about be brought to its knees by the lack of oil.

That's the immediately pressing issue. That's the elephant in the living room we aren't supposed to notice.

No, let's all worry about the seafood industry, or maybe the plankton. Let's not notice that the entire country is going to be shut down by this, and soon.

The ports aren't closed...the refineries aren't closed.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 961422


It was my understanding that the Coast Guard wasn't allowing boats on the Gulf. And the refineries may not be closed yet, but I suspect they will be as the spill gets closer and the air turns into a flammable hydrocarbon stew.

Thanks to OP for pointing this out.

OP, Dude, calm down.

You're starting to throw a tantrum because you're not getting enough attention.

Please calm yourself and discuss this in a rational manner.

You bring up interesting points, but are hostile and insulting to anyone that disagrees with you.

If you end up getting banned, it will be because of your hostility, not because "you're being silenced by 'them'".

Please considering behaving like a mature adult. I'm sure you'll find your stay here alot more pleasant.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Yea, small portion of worldwide oil comes from the Gulf but the vast majoroity of American oil is either extracted from or imported to the Gulf.

Here are the stats: [link to tonto.eia.doe.gov]

Domestic Production 5,522 million barrels/day

Imports: 11,630 - 13,054 million barrels/day

Exports from US: 1,734 barrels/day

Oil imports arriving at the Gulf: 51%

So if you combine domestic oil which is mostly being extracted from the Gulf and imports which are arriving at the Gulf, you get something like 85% of America's oil being affected by closure of the Gulf.

37% of our oil is being produced domestically
51% of our oil is being imported through the Gulf.

That actually totals 88%, but let's be conservative and say that 85% of our oil supply is being affected by this.

Re: WITH THE OIL SPILL LOOK AT WHAT THEY DO NOT TALK ABOUT -- GAS SHORTAGES
This is a thread from 6 weeks ago when I questioned whether the ports were open and where our gas was going to come from.



Now it's 6 weeks later and there is still no answer.


No information whatsoever on this topic.


Anyone?


Anyone?


Surely with over 600,000 viewers per day (supposedly), there must be someone who has access to this information.


Are you saying that there isn't one single vistor here who knows anything about the ports in New Orleans?



Anyone have any "on the ground" information to pass along.


This is a sharing of info. site, isn't it?
