Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Good news: a new oil field estimated at up to 1 billion barrels has been discovered in Utah. We can sleep soundly now!  :*)


"A little-known Michigan energy company has made a wildcat discovery that is setting the economically depressed region ablaze with gossip and hopes for a boom. Some estimates peg the oil resource at 1 billion barrels. At that size, it would be the biggest U.S. onshore discovery in 30 years."

1 billion barrels is better than nothing, but it is still less than 1/10th of Prudhoe Bay.  As a rough guess, this field might have a maximum production rate of 100,000 - 200,000 barrels per day.  For comparison, total US production is about 5.4 million barrels per day.
