Interesting Article

"About 80 miles off of the coast of Louisiana lies a mostly submerged mountain, the top of which is known as Eugene Island. The portion underwater is an eerie-looking, sloping tower jutting up from the depths of the Gulf of Mexico, with deep fissures and perpendicular faults which spontaneously spew natural gas. A significant reservoir of crude oil was discovered nearby in the late '60s, and by 1970, a platform named Eugene 330 was busily producing about 15,000 barrels a day of high-quality crude oil.

By the late '80s, the platform's production had slipped to less than 4,000 barrels per day, and was considered pumped out. Done. Suddenly, in 1990, production soared back to 15,000 barrels a day, and the reserves which had been estimated at 60 million barrels in the '70s, were recalculated at 400 million barrels. Interestingly, the measured geological age of the new oil was quantifiably different than the oil pumped in the '70s."

(BTW, you need to do a quick summary when you post a reference, or at least quote the first paragraph or so.)

Oh... this one again. it's been around before. The proposed mechanism has a number of flaws in it. The biggest one is that oil isn't found in the area of volcanos -- in fact, it's found in sandstone and shales. And it's only found where there's a hard layer salt dome to trap it.

The reason the reservoirs filled is that oil does seep slowly throughout the shale and sandstone beds. If you leave wells alone for awhile (and if the reservoir isn't tapped out), eventually you will get more oil in the wells. But it's a limited quantity.

Worldnet Daily is another "National Enquirer" type publication. The story they cite is an old one from someone enthused over their theory. It seems to have no reputable support (though it does have its followers in the "There is No Oil Crisis!" conspiracy bunch.)
