JUST FOR THE RECORD ...
The email below sent to this site a week ago has been reposted elsewhere with the implication that it was an article written by me. Not being an expert on oil rigs, it couldn't have been!
THE LIES TO HIKE THE OIL PRICE
A more appropriate title for this piece would have been "Orchestrating
Financial Collapse". To begin with, I'd like to thank you for your research and timely news that the rest of us don't have the time to dig into. Admittedly the hardest part of observing the unfolding of a prearranged history is connecting the dots. More to the point, to be able to see how all things are connected and work in concert to achieve a desired goal.
So I'd like to throw some things out that the public at large doesn't
know and never would. What I am about to tell is common knowledge in oil
circles but the worker ants at the bottom of the pyramid never question
what they see. I was an eye witness to what I am going to relate and
there are a good many others who could come forward if only they will.
In 2000 I worked in the Gulf of Mexico for two different OSV companies
that provided support services to the "oil patch". The two companies did
very different work for the oil companies so I got to get an eye full.
The first thing that I'd like to expose is the fact that nearly all of
the new wells in the Gulf are immediately capped off and forgotten
about. I saw well after well brought in only to see them capped off and
left. Oil or natural gas it didn't matter. I asked a couple of petroleum
engineers what exactly was going on and I was told by both (they worked
for different companies) that there was no intention of bringing that
oil to market until the "price was right".
That wasn't the only bogus thing that was happening. Seismic technology
had developed to the point that they could not only tell the companies
where the oil was but how much oil was there. All they had to do was go
out and stick a straw in and suck it out. They didn't. Once again, the
oil prices weren't right. When they are ready and want it they know
right where to go get it.
Another lie I'd like to lay to rest is the one about all of the
"terrible damage" done to the oil platforms and rigs in the gulf during
hurricanes. This is how they justify the price spikes that occur because
of lost production. If anyone cared to see this for themselves they
could travel the entire Gulf of Mexico in search of destroyed oil rigs
and they won't find any- not one. There is a damed good reason that this
is so and that reason is that they are built so well that a hurricane
can't touch them.
Think about it . If you're going to build something in an area where you
are guaranteed to see 150-180 mph winds, storm swells up to 60-80 feet
and it will happen year after year, how would you build them? Out of
chicken wire and duct tape? Hell no and they don't. The platforms are
designed to offer almost no wind resistance and the majority of
platforms are at least 120 feet above the water level. They are built so
well that several of them have suffered direct hits by watercraft of all
sizes with little harm. They were damaged but they were far from destroyed.
The reason that I know how well they are constructed is because for
awhile I worked with a company that salvaged derelict oil rigs. When the
wells ran dry and the oil companies didn't need them any more the
company that I worked for would buy them, take them apart, haul them
back to land, refurbish and then resell them. It is an incredible
process to take these things apart because they are constructed so well.
I've worked on the boats that hauled explosives to the job sites to
speed the disassembly process.
Another lie regards the "burp" in the supply line. Oil companies are as
stingy as any on earth and one of the ways that they cut costs is to
eliminate the number of people that they need on a rig to keep it
running. Most active wells are totally automated and require almost no
human intervention. The oil companies have guys that travel from rig to
rig via helicopter to check on things periodically but most never see a
human on them unless something goes wrong or some maintenance is needed.
During a hurricane about the only rigs that need to be evacuated are the
drill rigs that have workers on them. The active wells and pumping
stations are controlled by remote control from the shore and if it
weren't for the evacuation of land based personnel from areas where
there is danger from the hurricanes these things could continue to pump
right through the worst hurricane.
So, regarding a burp in the supply chain there shouldn't be one and that
is because most of the oil from the Gulf of Mexico goes to the refinerys
at Port Arthur or other points in Texas and the tankers from the middle
east go to Galveston to offload.
When oil moves across the Atlantic during hurricane season the tanker
traffic may have to kill some time to let a storm get ahead of them but
once it does they haul ass right behind it. Anyone who has seen how fast
an oil tanker can move in open water will tell you that they don't
dawdle around. Most of them can move around 30-40 knots and for a ship
that size that baby is moving on. The only reason they would have to
kill any more time would be if a hurricane suddenly changed course and
was headed for Galveston. So far this year that hasn't happened. So why
the "break" in supply?
Everything that we hear about oil from the oil companies is a big fat
lie. Have we hit "peak oil" as a good many insist that we have? I'll
make a wager with anyone who would care to take the bet. I bet that when
oil hits $100 a barrel (I have a hunch that's the target price) there
will be no shortage. Any takers?
One of the most astounding things to watch when the elite swing into
action is what I call conservation of movement. If you had three events
that you wanted to set into motion you could apply the necessary
pressure separately to all three to get them moving. Or you could do
what these guys do and wait patiently until you see the right
opportunity to apply the pressure in only one spot that will move the
other two with the momentum from the first. The difference is whether
something is pushed or pulled along. It"s as graceful as a ballet to
watch in motion. No wasted motion, no wasted energy, it would almost be
a thing of beauty if it weren't for the rotten purposes behind it all.
So for all of the kiddies that are waiting for their draft notices I
would say don't bother, I don't think that there will be a draft. They
won't need one. Since the all volunteer military came into being
recruitment has always had an inverse relationship to the economy. The
better the economy the harder it is to get recruits. We're facing a
winter season in North America that may see heating costs equal to a
family's house payment. If our weather is being controlled expect it to
be a bad one. With $100 dollar a barrel oil on the horizon and the
ensuing loss of jobs because of energy costs the military will be one of
the only places a young man or woman will be able to eat on a regular
basis and keep a roof over their heads.
The beltway fascists have said all along that there would be no draft
because they wouldn't need one. Don't you have to wonder how they knew
this (what is it you say- just a coincidence nothing to worry about)?
God does work in mysterious ways. The neocons need cannon fodder for
their war machine and lo and behold mysterious market forces drop it on
For another coincidence take a look at Social Security here in the US.
Amazing how the price of oil began a sudden rise when it became apparent
that the American people weren't going to allow their retirement money
to be "privatized". When the carrot didn't work the stick wasn't far behind.
Regards and keep up the good work,
