I agree with ya Billy.

I think the OPEC countries want the US to be dependent on them so we will protect them from the bad guys.

Comment by Sarah Moran on Saturday
Prior to OPEC, world oil production was regulated by the Texas Railroad Commission. The exporters got tired of politicians in Texas telling them what to do (though not all followed the RRC guidelines) and formed OPEC and set their own rules. Here we are nearly forty years later and it's starting to look like everybody needs to agree to production quotas for everyone to stay economically viable. I see in six months to two years the policy and business people sitting down and doing what the RRC used to...set a quota, no one goes over and while no one country gets uber-rich off exports....we all get a piece of a very lucrative pie. Or everyone can play chicken until their governments can't pay the bills and new politicians are voted in, or in the case of the Arab states...families are thrown out of power.
We shall see. But our mutual interests, for all oil producing countries, lies in cooperation.
Comment by Mark Neely on Saturday

Whoa, there.  Oil is a commodity and market prices go up and down - always have and always will.  Why would we expect OPEC to voluntarily cut production?  Are we?

Comment by Billy R. Simpson on Saturday

American energy independence is laying on the sacrificial altar of Russian sanctions, singing its death chant, meanwhile OPEC is dancing around the altar singing (stupid Americans)

Comment by Billy R. Simpson on Saturday

the last time this happened I have a friend who bought ten barrel wells from Texaco for the salvage value.

Comment by Billy R. Simpson on Saturday

I think lease rates will be minimal if at all. riggs will shut down and employees will be laid off probably be years before this shakes out, by then there will be no roughnecks to work the riggs and the equipment will be sold for scrap just like the last oil bust.

Comment by John Harris on Saturday

I'm afraid current prices will hurt lease bonuses ~i have a lease expiring in January ~

Comment by Billy R. Simpson on Saturday

I am afraid current oil price drop is really going to hurt oil production in Reeves County.

Thank you, Wade, and everyone who has provided information for all of us. I am still watching for information about section 183, block 1, where we have 20 nonparticipating mineral acres.
