If you listen to the TV news and proponents of KXL, you might think the Keystone XL is all about America. But, what if America has little to do with Keystone XL other than we are geographically located between Canada’s Athabasca tar sands and a deepwater port to foreign markets? Proponents focus their talk on the 42,100 jobs that will be created by KXL quoting the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement released by the US Dept of State Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs but fail to mention those are short term contract jobs. The very same doc they quote is also quoted by opponents of KXL because it says only 35 permanent jobs will be created. Learn more about America’s economic pros & cons with regard to KXL by reading this article.
Marathon Oil, a Houston Texas company, has recently purchased Encana’s (Calgary, Canada) leased acreage and producing wells in the Michigan Basin. Encana was given millions of gallons of Michigan freshwater to test the Collingwood shale and was permitted to use millions of gallons more. Their results, however, have not been economically viable for a for-profit company. Why would Marathon want to try the Collingwood after Encana’s failures here? Learn more about Michigan petroleum geology by reading this basic Michigan Petroleum Geology 101 primer.
