I have a comment for rikriley who posted this. How in the
world do you think that they can slant drill into our country?
You can't drill horizontally. It doesn't work like that. And in
order to be able to drill into our soil, they would have to be right
on the edge of the International property lines, which is around
7 miles or so off the coast. You can angle the drill stem or pipe,
at only a few degrees off vertical, and then they would have to have
pipe miles and miles and miles long. I am confused as to how
anyone can drill into our reserves. Do you have a source for this
angle drilling? I am really curious as to how they can possible do
this. I worked in the oil fields for a long time, and some of the
things posted in your subject don't add up. It is true you can angle
drill , but not enough of an angle to tap into our reserves.
I too would be outraged if they were able to tap into our oil reserves,
but it doesn't happen quite in the way you portray.
