    Objective Voice already corrected your statistics, but that hasn't kept Apdst, the oil company shill, from exaggerating the jobs in the hundreds of thousands. You've misquoted me, by the way. I stated that there was no way that 50,000 jobs were lost from 29 oil rigs. That information remains correct. But, nice try. Especially after you completely stepped in it over the oil on Pensacola beach.
    Do you have a clue how many support jobs there are in the offshore oil and gas industry? Obviously not, so let me help you out, then you can go crying elsewhere about how stupid I am.

    These companies are for starters work in just the Lafayette, Louisiana area, alone. These aren't oil companies

    Beyond that, there are over 27,000 abandoned wells in the gulf at present, some of which may be leaking. Perhaps, instead of drilling new wells, the oil companies should be using those existing wells.

    FOXNews.com - 27,000 Wells Abandoned, Unchecked in Gulf

    I can't believe people actually buy the nonsense you post.

    So, we have almost 4,000 active wells, and 27,000 abandoned wells, and you're bitching because we're not drilling any new deepwater wells until we figure out how to prevent another deepwater horizon?

    Your posts are not even rational. I mean, seriously. what in the hell are you thinking?

    Anyone can see that with 31,000 wells in the gulf, if the oil companies can't make a buck without drilling new deepwater wells, there's a ****ing problem, Houston.
    Those littel yellow dots are production platforms, not drilling rigs. Wanna try again?

    And that's why a lot of your posts are ridiculous. The assumption that companies are losing profit because they can't drill new wells in deep water, when we don't even know if we can stop those wells from blowing out and causing another incident like this, is RIDICULOUS.

    I'm sure the DRILLERS are pissed, but they are hardly representative of the entire oil industry. We're talking about 33 rigs for deepwater drilling. THAT IS ALL.

    There are 4,000s wells pumping oil TODAY. No one here has suggested that we stop pumping oil from active wells. What people have said is that we need to not drill any deepwater wells right now.

    Lousiana, all told, only has 50,000 oil jobs. The vast majority of those jobs still exist, ON PRODUCTION PLATFORMS, and driving oil trucks, and the like. IT's only the DRILLING JOBS that have been halted.

    and the overwhelming majority of those jobs haven't gone away, because they are involved in servicing the 4,000 active wells.

    Even the deepwater wells that are active are still functioning. It is drilling on NEW WELLS that is being affected by the moratorium. It's funny how you never seem to mention that.

    Drilling accounts for 80% of the oil and gas jobs that are created. But, I'm sure with your vast experience in the oilfield, you already knew that.

    I mean, you got three hands that live and work in South Louisiana, telling you how it is, but hey! We're full-a-****. You know better, having worked exactly zero days in the oilfield. Care to make any other totally uninformed comments?

    You don't have a single clue how the system works, so why not just shut the **** up about it? You said that there aren't even 50,000 oilfield job in Louisiana, to begin with. Only the jobs on the drilling rigs. You cocked that up!

    So, how are we supposed to take you serious?

    12,000 jobs gone already.

    12,000 Jobs

    I'm sure everyone else is full-a-****, but IT and CPD. Right?

    Re: First rig sails away over drilling ban

    I looked at those little dots and without even reading what was in the thread I thought to myself how that's a cute little map of all the platforms in the gulf, the PRODUCTION platforms. I actually was wondering why she was posting the production platform map when this is about drilling. Fact is, she didn't know the difference! LOL

    See, CPD has no CLUE about the oil industry. She keeps ranting and raging, even with tons of facts in her face proving her wrong, I mean it's almost funny now. We've, well more honestly, AP has proven her wrong beyond my wildest abilities. I am no master at the computer, I heed to you AP, you own this thread! In one post you can say more than I can say in 10. I know my stuff, you know your stuff, but you can CONVEY your messages so much better than I can. Good job, I am quite proud of you!

    Think about this AP. You and I know about as much about coal mining as CPD knows about the oil industry. Would you, in your right mind, argue with people who live and work in the coal mining industry regarding a 6 month moratorium on excavating coal from the president? Why would I even try? I know when I know nothing about an industry and respect the people in that industry. Even if I don't agree with what they say, I know that their knowledge base is strong so their opinions are probably right, when mine are wrong based on me not knowing **** about coal mining.

    That's the little part CPD and IT have a problem with. Knowing when to respect people who live and work in an industry and not act like you know more than they do because they will embarrass you to no end, as you AP, have done to them, specifically CPD.
