  • Vanguard Natural Resources has $614M deal to buy Eagle Rock Energy [View news story]
    VNR may soon have many, many more opportunities to acquire for "The infusion of liquidity" as the domestic producers deteriorate further. Is it much different than Linn's game?

  • General Motors: Investor Confidence Screeches To A Halt Over Possible Criminal Charges [View article]
    Will insurance cover any of the expense of litigation?

    It ma be a very dumb assumption on my part to think insurance exists for GM and if it did there is no exclusion in the policy preventing coverage.

    Ms. Goodman,

    What is stopping WTI at $55?

    The Saudi coalition, which includes Russia, has every intention to obliterate the Domestic Shale Oil economics.

  • Chevron can't reach cash flow neutral at $70 oil, analyst says [View news story]
    All the Big Oil CapX players are rethinking their business model. Those in Buy Back mode should be avoided as they are missing acquisitional opportunities. Replacing reserves Y/Y is a prime indicator to keep investor attention.

    The smart money is moving from Big Oil into the tariff based Midstream players.

  • Walter Energy says "substantial doubt" on continuing as going concern [View news story]

    Monitor their non-coal lines of business. The coal sales will likely decline further into the abyss. Clean Coal Tecnology doesn't appear to have been adequate to get a Green thumbs up. They did maintain the distribution, even though greatly reduced. I haven't given up yet. Dummie me?

    Who, besides Apple, concerns you for the potential tax liability? Is Toyota and Exxon funneling through Luxembourg?

  • Oasis Petroleum: Success Of High-Intensity Completions Drives Cash Flow Neutrality At Lower Oil Prices [View article]

    From my exposure to rock mechanics in the 70's, received as an EIT (engineer in training) from a Frac pumping company. I am no longer a registered professional engineer. Once the failure pressure of the formation (disposal formation) is exceeded a fracture can be propagated (grown/extended) for as long as the propagation pressure is maintained (by the disposal pumps). Propagation extends laterally, as well as up and down, until boundaries are encountered (different rocks encountered).

    The questions in my mind:
    Where all is the disposal fluid actually going?
    Does a fault penetrate through the disposal formation?
    What is occurring at the fault line where the the fault is non-sealing or partially non-sealing?
    Is there adequate lubrication within the plane of the fault allowing/enhancing slippage (possible tectonic event referred to as an earthquake)?
    Is a non-sealing fault allowing disposal fluid to enter a formation or formations other than the permitted disposal formation?

    Sorry for getting off the topic in your great article.
