I wonder if Q can tell us why if the usa is the largest producer of petroleum and gas that we sell it to everyone else and then buy supply from other countries. I guess he is too busy stimulating peoples minds to worry about something related to the department of energy.



US has a large refining capacity. Companies move crude oil in and ship refined products, like raw gas, out to foreign customers. The government has no direct management of this process.

It has to do with refinery capacity and the oil source being refined. There has to be a general match in terms of light/heavy, sour/sweet, etc. Add in long term contracts and you will understand the complexities a little better.

Another example is that PA is shipping Marcellus shale gas to New England while getting natural gas from the south.

Q. Thankfully we did have Q to stimulate the awareness to see all of this from a non sheeple angle.

It's just a different sheeple angle.

You are also claiming to know because your "source says".

This was just Hakeem trying to sound important by giving orders to the AG. Hakeem has no authority to do so and is just a self-important blowhard that should be ignored.

I think they very much directly manage the process. If they want to they just throw sanctions on a countries ability to move such. That is just one example of the gov. hands in the oil business.

If we wanted we could have a first dibs law that put our needs first and allow our supply to be met in house before others and that would reduce the need to take over other countries in the name of oil.

If this Q movement is brought to us by the department of energy then we are worse off than i first believed.

A lot of it has to do with refining capacity, and the type of oil produced stateside vs the rest of the world.

There are a lot of other reasons, but snark isn't one of them.

Why importing and exporting oil makes sense


Second, not all crude oil is the same. It ranges from light to heavy, high to low sulfur and sour to sweet. The bulk of the oil currently produced in the United States is light oil. And not all refineries are the same. Many Gulf Coast and Midwest refineries were designed to process heavy oil from Canada, Venezuela and Mexico. To use more light crude domestically, refineries would need to pay less for their oil feedstock and would run in a suboptimal fashion, or require a significant investment in new infrastructure.

“There’s a mismatch between the new production we’re developing as an industry and our country’s existing refining capacity,” said Ryan Lance, ConocoPhillips Chairman and CEO. “To process this new, lighter oil, refineries would have to operate inefficiently or at a reduced rate. They need to buy oil at a discount in order to make it economic to refine it, which hurts domestic producers and ultimately, consumers.”


They should teach economics in High School, macro and micro, but it would destroy the narrative on the left.

So because i have the thought that maybe we should produce and refine our fuel in house that makes me a snarky leftist. Perhaps this is why we are so divided over issues in the usa. FYI neither the left or the right supports my idea here from what i have gathered.

Again my larger point is that if Q is rick perry then maybe he should stop the non sense and focus on his job instead of efforts to divide america. If q is that guy then i see bars in his future.




Also judging by everyone's comments here we can know that if a politician touts the idea of energy independence we can believe they are just politicking and it is not a real goal according to your answers.

No, it's because you haven't studied the issue that you are commenting on, and you don't understand the fundmentals of the global free market WRT energy. Even a non-expert, like myself, understands the fundamentals of oil and gas production from the hole in the ground to the en user, not because I absorbed it out of thin air, but because I took the time to research it on my own.

The DOE might have oversite, but the free market operates as it does only under that oversite, not as a result of it.

Hmmm. I don't know what to tell you, here.

My apologes if I offended you by calling your comment snarky, but that's how it read to me.

You assume too much here about me. Now i ask you would it be possible to get rick Q perry off his ass and set in motion regulations that put american fuel independence first over global trade in an effort to undermine the war mongers pulling the strings.

If you are gonna try to tell me that we can not produce american sourced and american refined fuel at a reasonable cost in an amount that covers our current use then i implore you to hit the books. This is what other countries have done right before america went all regime change on their asses.

You already have the reasons and necessary information but you persist in asking the same questions.

The Secretary of Energy does not make contracts or build refineries. As Coram and I have stated, there has to be a match between the oil being refined and the refinery. Changing a refinery structure or building new refineries is very expensive and companies have to balance that expense with import costs.

All i hear is excuses and need to be right at the expense of the truth. Currently we are the largest producer of crude oil and are estimated to have 90yr supply of natural gas. Currently we supply 40% of our own fuel needs. The infrastructure and supply currently exist to supply 100% of our needs first then supply and refine for other countries.

So why do we not supply ourselves first? So far the only answer i have really found that makes any kind of sense is that it is better to use other people reserves before ours.Even that thought has its flaws when you figure in the amount of struggle and human life we have scarified in the name of oil and most of all the current starving of people by the use of sanctions against countries that do not play our kind of ball.

It seems as if we are using the oil industry as a control mechanism. Perhaps if dick is Q he could begin to lay the ground work for a change in attitude as per our current starvation policies toward others and we could use other more friendly means to deal with dictators who choose to not feed their people in a humane manner.

What you call truth is merely your opinion and what you call excuses have a basis in reality. Why don't you make your case with something more than your personal opinion? EIA should give you more than enough information to provide a basis for your arguments. www.eia.gov...
For example, show what refineries can feed Texas/Bakken oil and the effect on the price of fuels of having one or more down for modifications to change from heavy crude to Bakken. Show how existing refineries can produce product slates in proportion to demand with the various types of feedstocks.
You will find this to be much more complex than you assumed it to be.

So as soon as the Mueller probe wraps up (30 days?) it’s game on with Huber and Horowitz? At least that’s my take. Optics matter. They can’t go on offense while the Mueller investigation is on-going.

Your time zone is not that used on QMap.

Times 3:48 and 3:52 are 1548 and 1552. Check drops. Do the drops tie in?

Sounds like you want me to do the job that Q is getting paid to do. Bottom line is that we can produce and refine enough fuel to sustain ourselves but the negative attitude gets in the way. We are vested in power and control to a point of seeming necessity.

It is laughable to hear someone saying we have to overthrow regimes in order to continue to depend on other countries oil simply because oil production and refining is complex.
