Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I wonder why it works for gas but not for oil?

We got all that North Sea oil brought online, didn't we ... that horizontal drilling and shenanigans to crack the tight rock in the play under Montana ... its just that with the gas co-produced with oil being so cheap for so long, there was a long time that we weren't trying very hard to find the natural gas.

Plus there is the natural geology ... there's a window where carbon bearing sediments cook to a mix of oil and gas ... if it gets pushed deeper than that window, its just gas.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
