    Hero has 200 million dollars cash in the bank, they will weather the storm. No bankruptcy anytime soon. The longs are not in denial, it's the shorts who are dreaming.

    New advances in seismic exploration technology have yielded information that shows oil production is making a big comeback in shallow waters.

    "The industry by and large advances very methodically from a technology standpoint and one area that has advanced at breakneck speed is seismic."

    We are finding oil that was long since believed to have been produced, newer technologies have given companies the ability to see oil through salt formations.

    For ultra deep water wells it can cost upwards of 100 million dollars and take several years to drill before any oil is harvested, and about 3 months and a fraction of the cost for shallow water wells.

    I agree, and those rigs are constantly being upgraded with the latest new drilling technology. Even the Navy has battle ships with a few rust spots, but that doesn't stop them from doing there job.

    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.

    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.

    200 million dollars cash on hand in the bank is hardly chapter 11. It's those Goldman Sachs boys who are driving this stock down and abusive Short Selling is illegal if you have somebody to prove it.

    When gas costs less, we consume more. We are able to take that extra vacation trip that we couldn't afford when gas prices was high. When you get a chill while sitting in your home, you decide to raise the temperature because oil prices are cheaper. Alcoa announced today an increase in demand for aluminum with it comes more oil consumption. I predict in the next 4 weeks we will see a reduction in oil supplies and a increase in consumption.....Supply & Demand !!!

    We have a glut of oil on hand now, but not for long. With the bitter cold weather coming early and lot's of Snow in the forecast those oil & gas furnaces in the Northeast, Northwest, and Great Lakes Region will be running overtime. It's coming and the supply will soon be down, and driving oil prices up.

    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".

    Here's how I think all this will play out. Just like when Obama shut down the Gulf of Mexico and Seahawk Energy went bankrupt, and Hero bought the remains for pennies on the dollar. This could happen again. Some of the larger oil drilling companies are in trouble with huge debts and no cash reserves to help them make it through this down turn. If Hero makes it, and I believe they will, Hero will come out on top with less competition and could purchase another new rig for pennies on the dollar when the oil boom resumes. It looks like the kiss of death now, but all this could change for the better.

    The company can avoid bankruptcy with the plan already in place. 325 employees are being laid off and rigs are being cold stacked to save money and most important the company has 200 million dollars cash in the bank.

    I personally believe that the Saudi's will eventually agree to a production cut which will help support the falling oil prices. Saudi Arabia depends on oil to support there economy and feed there people. The price goes to low and the economy will collaspe. The USA is producing record supply of oil, so now maybe we will have the Saudi's backed in a corner.

    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.

    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
