    Saudi Arabia has intentions of bankrupting all the American oil drillers, and then the price goes to $150.00 a barrel. Cut the Saudi's off..........Drill Here......Drill Now........Pay Here.

    LONDON (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia steeply cut its January oil prices for Asian and U.S. buyers on Thursday, which some analysts said showed it was stepping up a battle for market share a week after refusing to support OPEC output cuts.

    Official Selling Prices (OSPs) for oil from the largest producer and exporter in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries have been seen as possible indications of the kingdom's oil policies.

    Some analysts have said sharp drops in OSPs in recent months show the kingdom is fighting for market share with other producers, but others have said the OSPs only reflect the market and are a backward-looking rather than a forward-looking indicator.

    "(The) Saudis are making it clear they don't want to lose market share," Richard Mallinson, an analyst at consultancy Energy Aspects, told the Reuters Global Oil Forum.

    So tell me oh smart one. How was Rynd supposed to know the Saudi's would keep production up to drive the oil price down ? Do you think he or anybody else has a crystal ball ? The stock market is and has always been risky. Rynd bought at $4.00 a share thinking it was a good deal. Most would have did the same thing.

    T. Boone Pickens predicts Oil prices will be back to $90.00 a barrel in 12 to 18 months. We are a wash in over supplyof oil and the world economy has slowed. It will take some time to reduce supplies but it will happen and this will drive prices upward.........As Warren Buffet say's "BUY LOW AND SELL HIGH", and now is the time.

    Indicators are showing the economy getting stronger, employers increase hiring. What does this spell ? More oil consumption and with it comes a drop in oil supplies. Shorts better grab your nuts because it's going to hurt.

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - The allure of investing in Mexico's historic oil sector opening has been dimmed by the plummeting price of crude, putting pressure on the government to offer bigger incentives to private investors in the first major round of contracts up for grabs.

    Since Congress in August approved the laws governing the dissolution of Mexico's 75-year-old state oil monopoly, crude prices have plunged more than 40 percent, reducing the appeal of investing in Mexican deposits.

    Mexico, the world's 10th biggest crude producer, last week announced bidding terms for the first set of production-sharing contracts, unveiling 14 shallow-water exploration blocks that will pay winning firms a share of each project's output.

    The overhaul aims to reverse a decline in crude output of 30 percent since 2004, but the slumping prices have cut potential returns, putting the onus on Mexico to make it more attractive for firms to invest - at the government's expense.

    By law, what companies must pay the government include a range of taxes and a basic royalty which will vary depending on the price of oil.

    The most important consideration in determining who wins the contracts will be what share of operating profits bidders offer the government above a minimum level.

    The finance ministry won’t set the floor on that share until just before the contracts are awarded next summer, and it is here that lawmakers say Mexico must be flexible.

    "What will the government do? Well, if it planned on a certain percentage for a given (project), it's just going to have to reduce the percentage," said German Pacheco, a congressman from the opposition National Action Party who helped craft the energy reform.

    Government officials admit privately that adjustments will likely be needed to maintain strong interest, though in public they are more circumspect, mindful that oil prices could still rally before winning bids are revealed.

    "The market will determine how much it's willing to offer," said

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. economy grew at a sizzling 5 percent annual rate in the July-September period, the fastest in more than a decade, fueled by higher consumer spending and business investment.

    The resurgence in growth last quarter provided the latest evidence that the U.S. economy is steadily strengthening and outshining most others around the world. The news helped lift the Dow Jones industrial average above 18,000 for the first time................... "And Oil Will Follow".

    Those old rigs have been up graded with the latest in new drilling technology. Why would you pay 300 to 400 thousand a day when you can get it at a much better price from Hero ? You need to get educated.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Obama administration on Tuesday bowed to months of growing pressure over a 40-year-old ban on exports of most domestic crude, taking two steps expected to unleash a wave of ultra-light shale oil onto global markets.

    The Bureau of Industry and Security, or BIS, which regulates export controls, said it had granted permission to "some" companies to sell lightly treated condensate abroad. Condensate is a form of ultra-light crude.

    Yes, they will survive. The Transocean/BP disaster shut down the Gulf of Mexico for an extended period and CEO John Rynd used it to his advantage to buy bankrupt Seahawk Drilling for pennies on the dollar. As of December 31, 2014 there was 325 employee's terminated with Hero. John will cut expenses to the bone and weather the storm until business improves. The company has about 200 million dollars cash in the bank too.

    Supply & Demand. The bitter extreme cold could reduce supplies and pump the oil prices back up. Much of the North East & Great Lakes Region will see Snow, Ice and extreme tempertures. It's hapened before and possible again.
