Joe Biden Shut Domestic Oil Production Down. Now, With His Presidency Dying Faster Than His Dying Brain, He Begs US Companies to Start Drilling Again-- and Finds Out That Will Take Years.

Dear Diary: Today I found out it's a lot easier to shut down domestic oil production with a series of executive orders and policy directives than it is to put oil back in production again.


Via Twitchy, the Financial Times discovers that when Pop-Pop burned the US's domestic production capacity down, he didn't have a plan for starting it back up again.

He just thought that "green energy" would come on line because we needed it to.

As US petrol prices scale record highs, with the cost of a gallon of fuel surpassing $5 for the first time, Joe Biden has pleaded with the country’s oil producers to open the taps and stem the surge.

But those calls -- a stark departure for a president who vowed to crack down on fossil fuels -- have largely gone unheeded as the industry insists its drilling spree days are behind it.

"When the White House started calling around in a panic, they thought shale oil production could grow sharply in the near term -- like in a matter of months or quarters," said Bob McNally, head of consultancy Rapidan Energy.

"They were shocked to learn that that's like asking for blood from a stone. It's almost impossible."

Weird, it's almost as if it's much easier to damage a complicated thing like a highly interrelated economic system -- or a human body -- with a stupid and gross injury than it is to repair it!

Meanwhile, AAA found the national gas average over $5 by Saturday, I think.

And a Michigan county is no longer sending out squad cars to respond to most emergencies, because gas is too expensive. They're just dealing with them by... phone.

This is some real Mad Max shit right here.

If you voted for Biden, you voted for this. I want you to starve because you have to choose between gas and food, or I want you trapped in your house because you have to choose between gas and rent.

If you didn't vote Biden, but thought Trump was just too icky to have back again - no mercy for you. You let your FEEEELZ overwhelm your political judgement. Sucks, doesn't it?

And for others. . .as the man says, this is what happens when you allow an election to be stolen.

35 From what I understand, domestic production has been going up for about a year after the massive falloff from the covid shutdowns, but it's not enough to counter the faster increase in demand.

So, where Biden could help: increasing supply, he's not, and market forces are playing out with the limited supply that it can, and it's not working out well for the consumer.

36 I had a summer college job working in an aluminum reduction plant. (the 70's man!) Over time, costs became prohibitive and they started shutting down lines. Shutting down was pretty simple. Turn off the power. Lay off the workers.
Starting up again...cost about a million bucks (in then money) because every pot had to be jackhammered out and cleaned, new carbon posts set, lines run, etc. In all, about three months of work.

Assume for a moment that restarting could happen in a brief period. That the men, equipment, land, leases, transportation, manufacturing, etc. are all available on standby and ready to spring into action. Even if that were true, it still wouldn't happen. Put yourself in an oil producer's shoes.

Would you rapidly restart and undertake the tremendous capital outlay necessary to restart and scale up quickly after what's happened to you over the past year and change? Why put all that money on the line when some asshole with his pen and his phone can take it away from you once the crisis passes?

68 The day that gas prices get anywhere near normal, whether through increased drilling or demand destruction, is the day they resume their attack on the oil companies. Frankly, they haven't stopped, even as they beg worldwide for oil.

Why would any sane producer lift a finger for them? They invest billions in return for a windfall profits tax or a congressional investigation? I'll tell you something else - the idea of the democrats trying to nationalize the oil industry is stupid, but considering how insane they are, it is not beyond the realm of impossibility, which is affecting investment as well.

As of right now, companies that are at the mercy of governmental whims cannot afford to plan more than 4 years out. An incoming PDT administration, company can go all out. As soon as a new administration is in place, start pulling back. There's no other way for a company to rationally respond. Even then, there's no guarantee an incoming administration won't look for ways to attack a business that tried to thrive during a friendly administration.

Somehow they want to stay open but they can see the future and its mighty bleak.

We should only be exporting the surplus, be it crude oil or refined products. Domestic demand comes first, then exports. We're still exporting this is one of the reasons - and it was an oversight from the start when we resumed oil exports - that diesel is so damned expensive here.

187 It isn't just leases. Yes, there have been new leases and even some failed auctions - something that should be impossible when we're in shortage. So why is this happening? Why are there more leases - and leases that fail to sell - with less production and higher demand?

Hey, moron, what was going on that would limit production. Oh yeah, you COVID idiots who shutdown the economy.

Posted by: EPA at June 13, 2022 01:34 PM (EpDzw)

Exactly. Stevie is not an honest broker or he can’t read simple data and connect dots. Production level pre shutdown was close to 13,000b/day. With even greater potential for increased production and supply. While economic activity has increased post Covid nonsense, oil production has flatlined.

Exactly on point. When supply is SHORT of demand that price HAS to go up to meet demand.

Brandon was not on point when he released oil from the Strategic Oil Reserve because it still didn't meet demand. And the market priced in that it was temporary.

Fix this by pumping a lot more. Build more refinerys, Keystone pipeline, nuclear power plants.

I'm not of the school that thinks Pelosi is a gibberish-spouting drunk every day of the week. I think she, like Stinkfinger, has a weak baffle plate in her brain and blurts out the things she means to keep quiet. So when she says she has no intention of losing the house, I do not see it as drunk talk or false bravado. I think she is throwing down the gauntlet to the GOP, telling them the Dems will steal the midterms and they won't have the balls to do anything about it.

412 And the windmill blades are degrading faster than they thought because nobody consulted with a helicopter blade manufacturer

Even if the blades didn't degrade in a few years instead of a decade, windmills make no sense. I know of no windmill anywhere that breaks even economically without subsidies.

413 So over 14+ years the company that wanted to built it was stuck in limbo. For a $ billion project.


If we ever get an actual opposition party in government they should start adding riders, so for example the Keystone folks get $X dollars for every year the government delays the project.

427 Would you buy Russian oil if it bought gas prices down to $2.50 a gallon?

If you do polling on that it would be something like 90-10 against.

If you actually let people choose to pay one rate or the other though it would be 99-1 the other way.

Reminds me of...CT or one of the other Northeastern blue shitholes where they introduced an optional higher tax rate so people who thought they were undertaxed could pay more.

And...no one chooses the higher rate.

Well, I hope you're right, but I fear you are not.

I am also convinced that, at the national level, nothing will change. The GOP will see that they got a yuge 'red wave' just by letting the Dems fuck up and by saying and promising nothing to the voters. They're not going to damage their re-election chances by agitating to release the J6 prisoners, or hold Stinkfinger to account, or tighten the border or. . .well, anything at all.

Any change has got to come from the local level and from governors like Heavy D. Massachusetts is a lost cause, even with $10 / gallon gas.

451 "Green energy" is yet another, amorphous phrase that the left believes in so intensely, but which means almost nothing at all.

If by "green energy" you mean wind and solar taking place of large generation plants: (a) it will never work, and (b) its even worse for the actual environment --solar is the least efficient land use per kilowatt of any type of power plant, and that's not even factoring in all the toxic metal mining and manufacture, and the (soon to be experienced) nightmare of disposing of these things. And wind is a true bird annihilator (and did anyone mention defacement of the land as well?).

So if by "green energy" you mean nuclear then yes, I'm all for it. But somehow I don't think that's where they're going with this.

482 >> I honestly have no idea how they separate out price increases due to monetary pressure from price increases due to actual market forces

That is complex thing indeed, and not so easy to do. In theory, you simply say the price of some P is the product of two factors, a monetary price level factor and the real price.

There are various methods to try to separate those two, but they're not perfect, and don't always means what you think they should mean.

I save every plastic water or sport's drink bottle, take the lable off, wash it out then fill it with tap water.

I don't actually drink tap water, I filter mine in the fridge and a zero water filter. However, if you use tap water it already has chlorine in it so I don't have to add it. I can filter as I use it.

I have many gallons stashed away. I also have a rain barrel in the yard that I can use for washing water or other non potable uses.

Which, strategically for the US, is a disaster, since Alberta's oil is/was essentially locked in to being sold to the US. Apparently the Canucks had to sell it at below world rates to us

For the Canadians, a pipeline to the Pacific opens up their market and gets them better prices and flexibility. They can tell us to stick it.

The funny thing is the green retards in BC are opposing a pipeline to the coast. This info is a few years old. Not sure of the situation today.

I highly recommend that you hold your fire on the predictions about cheating. Yes there will be cheating, and in some cases it has a good chance of making a difference (AK Senate and PA Gov are good examples).

However, I have polling internals that I will be posting in the next week that shows the horrible position the Dems are in right now.

You can fairly argue that it won't matter because of the uniparty. But if you argue that the Dems won't lose the midterms, you are going to be embarrassed.

The polling numbers for Dems are the worst I've ever seen, worse than 2010 and 1994. And unless something happens to reign in gas prices and inflation, it's going to get worse.
