$72 Billion Investments in US as it Heads Towards Energy Independence (Bloomberg)
Is that like the RLP-shuffle?
norris maybe you can help with the math (below) since he just seems to want to call names instead of pointing out how you can determine how long it might be or if it might be that ND could possibly overtake TX as the #1 oil producing state without doing a rate calculation.
So please let me know if you see any interesting production numbers or math trends...
Here is a copy of my post about his post & my estimate based on EIA published production rates:
"This is your funny post:
"You said nothing about the rate of increase in your original post - you said how soon will...
You said nothing about the rate of increase in your original post - you said how soon will ND surpass Texas in PRODUCTION.
You know nothing about elementary math if you are reverting to that argument, I won't even try to justify a response to your ignorance."
So, go ahead and tell us how you are going to do the math without comparing the rates of increase in production of ND to TX so that you can determine if & how long it might be before ND might become the #1 oil producing state.....
This is the math that compares the rates using EIA data for only the last 6 months that they posted:
lets look at THE ACTUAL PRODUCTION numbers and compare to see if any pattern is revealed that might make you feel a little closer to reality?
Please feel free to check my math (significant figures are incorrect and rounding off to the 3rd decimal place was done by just removing the remaining numbers).
ND production/TX production = what percentage(s)
April 2012: 18,285/55,992 = 32.656%
May 2012: 19,839/ 58,617 = 33.845%
June 2012: 19,939/57,984 = 34.387%
July 2012: 20,964/61,733 = 33.959%
August 2012: 21,744/62,524 = 34.777%
September 2012: 21,855/61,500 = 35.536%
35.536% – 32.656% = ∆ 2.88% so annualized that would be = a 5.76% gain by ND production over TX production based on the above ½ year 2012 EIA production numbers (in thousand of barrels)....
Did you read it?
And, this part:
"You know nothing about elementary math if you are reverting to that argument, I won't even try to justify a response to your ignorance.""
Your calculations are of course correct. It knows it as well.
Like Stag, willie, Ron and RLP it is just a sickness. But a mental sickness which controls 2/3 of our federal government which seeks to limit economically viable energy development while claiming they are encouraging it.
