Op-ed: Utahns want Bears Ears monument? Not the ones I surveyed 21.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
A new poll shows that the majority of Utahns oppose the president naming Bears Ears region as a new national monument. Coincidence that this statement rings opposite as the statement published in the Salt Lake Tribune on August 11? The new survey was performed by me, a concerned native of San Juan County, who has no funds to hire a professional survey company, such as the Benenson Strategy Group (BSG). I ran my own survey to grasp what polls really entailed. The two surveys were managed by me, w...

Pemex woes snowball as production plunges 20.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Petroleos Mexicanos’ deteriorating finances are poised to get much worse, signaling no end in sight to years of declining oil production. The company’s output may dwindle to about 1.6 million barrels a day by 2020, less than half its 2004 peak, because it lacks the technology and funds to revamp aging fields, Morgan Stanley analysts led by Martijn Rats said in a July 24 report obtained by Bloomberg. Pemex has had cash flow shortfalls for the past three years, and this year the gap will almost do...

Roger Steen: Increased setbacks needed 17.8.2016 Steamboat Pilot
On page 5 of the Aug. 9 Steamboat Today, there is a notification from Bureau of Land Management to Northwest Colorado of another planned 100,000 acre oil and gas lease sale, scheduled for May 2017. Seventeen-thousand acres of this sale are to be in Routt County and 91 percent are split estates, meaning that the surface property owner is different from the hydrocarbon resource owner. The associated maps show most of the leasing to be about one mile west of Oak Creek in townships 3N, 86W; 4N, 86W, and 5N, 86W, and about one mile south of Milner in township 6N, 86W. The maps are found at blm.gov/co/st/en/BLM_Programs/oilandgas/oil_and_gas_lease/2017/may_2017_lease_sale.html . This BLM sale is driven by industry’s request for these federal resources to be put up for sale, which indicates that the industry is not dead but is positioning itself for more drilling and production when production becomes economical again. The single most contentious landowner issue related to oil and gas wells and production is ...
