    That's funny considering many South American countries are being paid to drill by Obama, now Mexico is the middle man in an oil overflow...

    I love how anti-oil progressives are yet support Obama who clearly enjoys stimulating foreign economies by paying them to export oil to us. I suppose oil is fine just as long as we don't drill it ourselves or shale/frack it....

    This government is so backwards.

    Hell, it's plausible to suggest the American oil companies that start operatating Mexico could hire some guns to handle up on the drug cartels.
    Are you serious with this?

    The cartel has more guns and better guns and they don't care how many of the soldiers get killed, or other people for that matter.

    If they come across something they can't confront directly, they go after families and assets.

    But developing Mexico's oil industry is only good if it's American oil multinationals developing the oil and sending it to the U.S. Otherwise this is bad news when China or India get their hands on the oil.
    Wow, read the thread. We already get oil from Mexico, they are our third largest supplier after Canada (number 1) and SA. Their fields are dwindling as we speak. Openning the fields to US oil companies will only quicken that. We'll get more in the interim and then Mexico is **** out of luck. The clock is ticking on that income Mexico receives from oil. What happens when they reach the end of that resource and is the US then going to be stuck supporting the result?

    Hmmm. Name Address: dsl-201-138-234-12-dyn.prod-infinitum.com.mx - Hey! Apdst stick to discussing the technical aspects of mining/oil drilling. The political/economic aspects of it are way above your pay grade.



    Sigh. Okay, here we go:

    Great Panther Silver - Operations - Guanajuato Mine Complex - Guanajuato Mine Complex - German multinational.
    Impact Silver Corp. - Zacatecas, Mexico - Tue Dec 17, 2013 - American multinational
    Del Toro Underground Silver Mine, Zacatecas - Mining Technology - Canadian multinational.

    Yep, sure sounds local. Again, you have no clue what it is you're discussing.



    Spare me the chest beating. It's been tried by multinational mining companies and it has failed miserably.
    I think he was saying that just because you are in Mexico doesn't mean you know anything, not that you weren't in Mexico.

    It is hard for people that have not experienced the cartels, especially the Zetas, what it is like here.

    What state are you in? I'm in Nayarit. Headed to Zacatecas/San Luis Potosi in a few days.

    As of right now, nobody 100% is sure but it's pretty well established that the local police are all Zetas and Chapo is trying to get control of the area back. They got signaled about a year ago and were told there would be a "clean". It's pretty calm here but only after about 2-3 years of violence. The governor (I think it was Ney) sold the plaza to two different cartels and **** got wild.

    Because, unfortunately that what it does. Which in this case wouldn't be such a bad thing. It is in the US's best interest to make sure Mexico isn't run by corruption and drug cartels.

    Yes, but parity does not mean that the entire sector can be run off solar or wind. Hydro power is already at parity in terms of price, but capacity wise we already are nearly maxed out. Wind and solar suffer from several structural limitations. We can discuss those if you want, but I think with a little bit of imagination you can figure those out on your own.

    Good news, hopefully more North American oil can be produced and prices lowered.
