    Government bureaucrats causing U.S. oil & gas producers to waste hundreds of millions of dollars just because one NYT reporter wrote an article based on essentially nothing.

     

    Of course, this is the same SEC that has been ignoring crooked bankers for decades. There is not much difference between the kind of creatures that populate the banks and the kind of creatures who populate the SEC. Neither creates anything of real value.

     

    But most oil men are far different. Oil is value.

    Would the SEC even know how to judge correct measurement?
