The path toward U.S. energy independence, made possible by a boom in shale oil, will be much harder than it seems. Just a few of the roadblocks: Independent producers will spend $1.50 drilling this year for every dollar they get back. Shale output drops faster than production from conventional methods. It will take 2,500 new wells a year just to sustain output of 1 million barrels a day in North Dakota's Bakken shale, according to the Paris-based International Energy Agency. Iraq could do the same with 60 wells.
If by very good article you mean the one where "A Prudent Investor" believes rise in the price of oil will more then off set charge costs and BPT will pay a distrubution for the next 18 years then no.... its a terrible article.
I think by "good article", he means one in which the conclusion supports his current investment position. There wasn't any mention of whether this article is more believable than others which reached different conclusions.
