Why America is the new Middle East in terms of oil production: World’s largest reserves just discovered under Texas

For the first time since 1973, the United States now leads the world in terms of oil production. And according to reports, we have the ground underneath Western Texas and Eastern New Mexico to thank.

A new assessment by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) estimates that untapped regions of what’s known as the Delaware Basin, a component of the greater Permian Basin, contain 46.3 billion barrels of oil, 281 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and 20 billion barrels of natural gas liquids – an amount two times larger than what was estimated in a 2016 assessment of just the Wolfcamp shale play in Permian’s Midland Basin.

These estimates take into account access to continuous, unconventional oil comprised of “undisclosed” but “technically recoverable” resources, according to the USGS. This means that such resources are accessible using methods like slant drilling and hydraulic fracturing, also known as “fracking.”

“Christmas came a few weeks early this year,” stated U.S. Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke, about the unexpected discovery. “American strength flows from American energy, and as it turns out, we have a lot of American energy.”

“Before this assessment came down, I was bullish on oil and gas production in the United States. Now, I know for a fact that American energy dominance is within our grasp as a nation.”

For the first time EVER, the U.S. now exports more oil than it imports

This news comes at the same time that President Donald Trump has announced that, for the first time, the U.S. is now exporting more crude oil than it’s importing.

This makes the U.S. more robust in terms of energy independence than even Middle Eastern energy powerhouses like Saudi Arabia, which is known for its oil production.

According to the official numbers, the U.S. exported a net of 211,000 barrels of oil during the week that ended on November 30, 2018. Based on historical records provided by the Energy Department, this is the first time this has ever happened since the numbers first started getting tracked back in 1973.

“So when does the U.S. send a delegate to OPEC meetings?” joked Kyle Cooper, a consultant at ION Energy in Houston, as quoted by Reuters. “It’s really quite amazing. I do think that will occur more and more often in the coming years.”

New technologies make it possible to detect, access domestic energy resources

As for America’s vast domestic oil and natural gas reserves, we wouldn’t even know about these latest ones were it not for advancements in the technology required to identify them.

“In the 1980s, during my time in the petroleum industry, the Permian and similar mature basins were not considered viable for producing large new recoverable resources,” says USGS Director, Dr. Jim Reilly.

“Today, thanks to advances in technology, the Permian Basin continues to impress in terms of resource potential.”

The latest assessment put together by the independent oil and natural gas consulting firm Rystad Energy back in 2016 estimates that there’s currently 60 billion barrels of shale oil sitting underneath the ground in Texas alone – which is more recoverable oil than in the entire nation of Saudi Arabia.

These energy reserves in the Delaware and Midland assessments contain “our largest continuous oil and gas assessments ever released,” says Reilly. “Knowing where these resources are located and how much exists is crucial to ensuring both our energy independence and energy dominance.”

Just the Delaware area alone consists of 10,000 square miles of land that span five different counties in Texas, and another three in New Mexico. It is now said to be among the top areas for producing oil and natural gas in the entire country.

    Thank you, Mr. President!

    Not to sound pessimistic but I just had a terrible thought. Are we certain that we own this parcel of land and own the drilling rights?

    So, ww’ve had the oil all along. Don’t tell me we just discovered this oil. More like we’ve been covering it over on purpose. Saving it for later while we burn the Arab oil which keeps the dollar propped up with petrodollars.

    It would seem logical to keep homeland proven oil reserves AS RESERVES, and use the potential supply as leverage to get lower prices on foreign oil. Deplete foreign sources first.

    One more reason to be alert, Russia and China would love to take our resources.

    Just wait until it is made public what the true known reserves are in Alaska which have been kept secret for a long time

    Anyone here recall Lindsey Williams? I know his more recent stuff has been a bit less reliable, but he DID have some high level contacts in the oil industry long ago and called the massive price moves in oil through the early 2000’s. The PLAN according to what he was told by Ken Fromm before he died, has ALWAYS BEEN to eventually stab the Saudi’s in the back and then tap into the massive oil reserves in the center of this country and gull island near Alaska. We have the oil here, its just been purposely kept untapped and off the market. Its all just a big kibuki theater folks. Unfortunately, all that oil won’t stop the intentional crash of the dollar and our economy, so watch the show but keep preparing.
