Re: CHINA STARTS OIL DRILLING OFF FLORIDA
I sat in on congressional hearing a few months ago about NEPA (The National Environmental Policy Act). It is a wonder we ever get anything done. If we signed leases in the Gulf of Mexico today it will take us 15 years to have any production, yet China can sign a lease and start producing within 3 years. It pisses me off!

Re: CHINA STARTS OIL DRILLING OFF FLORIDA
ah... good article, but one problem.

the chinese use OUR drilling technology, and the only thing they have mastered is jack-up rigs...

all the slant drilling technology is in the hands of western oil exploration companies...

IF they ever move a rig in to the Gulf of Mexico, it will be interesting to see if they actually get or find any oil...

more to extraction than saying you are going to do it.

ALL the companies in the world that KNOW HOW TO DO THIS are US companies...

even the russians use american drillers for the hard wells.

and the chinese have NO DRILL SHIPS

only platforms that can operate in costal shelf areas

plus that particular gets nailed by 4 or 5 hurricanes a YEAR.

yea right let me see the chinese pull that one off...

REAL DRILLER are American

look it up...

find me ONE competitor that is not western...

saying you are going to do it and ACUTALLY pulling off aare TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT THINGS

whatever

Re: CHINA STARTS OIL DRILLING OFF FLORIDA
what amazes me is REALLY how clueless you guys are...

all the drilling companies thatKNOW HOW to do this are american...

WE own the drilling rigs, invented the technology and can teach them how to run the platforms AFTER the wells are in...

go look up all the oil wells in the world that are producting and see who brought them in whith what technology?

american

we build the rigs
we engineer the platforms
we put the holes in the ground
we lay the pipelines
we REFINE the crude

the current prices have more to do with refinery capacity and the MARKETS than the ability to bring oil in being...

we haven't gieven away ANYTHING..

WE ARE THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN

consistently DO IT !

there are only about 100 directional drilling rigs in the world

all made and operated by american companies

oh yes our "customer" might be the Saudi's

or this govt
or the nigerians
or what ever podunk county WE FIND THE OIL IN

but Americans have to go and drill the wells
put the infrastructure in and THEN teach the locals how to OPERATE it...

don't believe me?

then do a little research and come back and tell me different

oh yes and the Brits are pretty good to...

Norwegians have som geek as well...

Russians can make ancient land rigs work

but all the SERIOUS drilling platforms in the sea of ohutsk are amercian companies drilling for russia.

then once the wells are capped in and the pipleines are laid...

THEN they get some oil..

whose ROV's do you think is doing all that work on the bootom of the ocean?

americans

what about the divers welding underwater and living in a deep water bell for weeks at a time?>?
american and some russian

it is a VERY small world when it comes to making the oil patch work

and AMERICA RULES

why are gas prices high?

cuz TPTB want them that high to extract a little wealth

dat's why

and THAT aint no Enigma

Re: CHINA STARTS OIL DRILLING OFF FLORIDA
Greed will win out here. If the enviro nuts have this locked up in a legal battle, these American companies will just collect their money from China and provide the technology and drillers to do this. Why would they sit on their hands and do nothing when there is oil/money to be had.

I seriously doubt whether these drilling companies care who's paying them.

Are you all forgetting that technology is eventually for all? The poster that thinks that America has the dibs on the oil rig digging technology just make me laugh.

Also, don't forget about the humongous debt that we owe to China. Why do you think Bush treads so carefully around N. Korea?

Re: CHINA STARTS OIL DRILLING OFF FLORIDA
And just how long before these AMERICAN COMPANIES move their operations to China like so many other AMERICAN COMPANIES have done. Just like recently there was only one company left here that knows and has the specialized process to make the magnets for our guidance systems. They packed up and went to China. What incentive is there for these companies not to do business with China. The economic environment that has been created works the other way. Companies have more incentive to base out of China than they do the US. And don't even think they'll stick around because they are faithful Americans. What a joke. No such thing any longer in the corporate world. Screw the country, it's the bottom line that matters, not loyalty to any nation.

Re: CHINA STARTS OIL DRILLING OFF FLORIDA
Anyone happen to key in on the notion that China own's the rights to Panama canal and these oil rigs or drilling platforms can have more than 1 use.

Good excuse to have Chinese vessels in the area very near our southern borders. Possibility of intentional conflict?

There is development of air bases and such in the area for China's use not to mention the overwhelming influx of Chinese occupation of several key areas due south of us.

Part of a really big trojan horse? Who knows, just for a bit of thought provocation!
