ΑΙΜΑ ΚΑΙ ΥΔΡΟΓΟΝΑΝΘΡΑΚΕΣ
Ο έλεγχος και η αέναη εκμετάλλευση των πόρων της παγκόσμιας αγοράς ενέργειας αποτελεί έναν απο τους κυριότερους διαμορφωτές της γεωστρατηγικής πραγματικότητας που ζούμε και την πηγή τόσου ανθρώπινου αίματος, πόνου, και συμφοράς.
Μέσα απο την αδιέξοδη κρίση των παγκόσμιων νομισματικών αξιών που στηρίζουν το δολλάριο, και με νέες τεχνολογικές δυνατότητες άντλησης/εξόρυξης, οι “μεγάλες δυνάμεις” ξανασχεδιάζουν την γεωστρατηγική τους και τον παγκόσμιο χάρτη κρατικών συνόρων.
Ετσι, περιοχές του πλανήτη που δεν παρουσίαζαν άμεσα εκμεταλλεύσιμους ενεργειακούς πόρους-υδρογονάνθρακες– και οικονομικό ενδιαφέρον, βρίσκονται πλέον στο στόχαστρο των “μεγάλων” του πλανήτη.
Η Μεσόγειος λόγου χάριν, και οι χώρες που βρέχονται απο τα νερά της (και τα “πετρέλαιά” της ), αίφνης έχουν μεταβληθεί είτε σε μια τεράστια αρένα κοινωνικών πειραμάτων είτε αντιμετωπίζουν ενα κύμα συγχρονισμένων επαναστάσεων, που σκοπό έχουν να μεταβάλλουν το status quo και να αποσταθεροποιήσουν αυτά τα κράτη που θα μπορούσαν πλέον να εκμεταλλευτούν τα τεράστια κοιτάματα υδρογονανθράκων που ανήκουν στις ΑΟΖ τους με αξία τρισεκατομμύρια δολλάρια….
Στην άλλη πλευρά του πλανήτη, ο αγώνας για τον έλεγχο της ενέργειας συνεχίζεται, με πρωταγωνιστές τους γνωστούς άγνωστους πρωταγωνιστές στην Λατινική Αμερική αλλά και στις ΗΠΑ απ’όπου οι …Κινέζοι προσπαθουν να μεταφέρουν τεχνογνωσία των νέων μεθόδων και τεχνολογιών εξόρυξης .

Super Shift #1: Chavez will soon cut the U.S. out of $48 trillion
in Gulf oil
Everyone knows that Chavez is sitting on one of the world’s most impressive oil reserves, the vast Orinoco Basin. It holds nearly 600 billion barrels of “heavy” crude.
|The east Venezuela Basin (red) holds one of the world’s largest reserves.|
This incredible deposit is worth $44 trillion at today’s prices, and holds enough oil to satisfy current U.S. consumption for 87 years.
However, Chavez kicked U.S. oil giants Exxon and Conoco/Phillips out of the Orinoco back in 2007. Then he forced the remaining oil majors to give much of their stakes to Venezuela’s own oil company, PDVSA.
However, since the only refineries in the Gulf that can process heavy crude are based in the U.S., most analysts aren’t too worried that Chavez will cut off the U.S. from his oil.
But they’ll be worried soon…
That’s because PDVSA’s near monopoly on Caribbean oil drilling is forcing refineries in Jamaica, Curacao, the Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago and Ecuador (I’m advising on the construction of this one) to swiftly adapt to “heavy” crude processing.
This top-down domination of the supply chain will radically change the balance of Gulf oil production and distribution – especially to southern U.S. oil ports and refineries.
Think about it: With numerous heavy-crude-capable refineries under his thumb, Chavez would be able to channel his vast oil reserves to China and the rest of the world…INSTEAD OF THE U.S.
Talk about a “super shift” in the global energy market!
Super Shift #2: Beijing ponies up a quiet $2 trillion for western gas technology
Everybody knows that there’s a natural gas glut in the U.S. right now. New drilling technologies are allowing oil and natural gas to be extracted from zones that were formerly thought “un-tap-able.”
Among the best of these zones is the monstrous Marcellus Shale Play that stretches across the eastern U.S. – extending from southern New York, though central and western Pennsylvania, and ending in lower West Virginia.
This reserve is thought to contain more than500 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
Even in today’s rock-bottom gas market,Marcellus reserves would be worth over $2 trillion.
But here’s the twist: China’s interest in unconventional oil and gas plays is NOT in siphoning those deposits for their own use.
Their interest is in learning exactly how we’re getting at these deposits.
It’s the cutting-edge U.S. drilling and extraction technologies they’re after – so they can apply the same techniques all over Asia.
That’s the “super shift.”
Once China’s up to speed on the cutting-edge gas and oil drilling, extraction, and processing techniques America has pioneered…
They’ll be able to tap into the HUGE hydrocarbons reserves in Mongolia, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Indonesia, and much more.
Remember, China’s got over $2 trillion in liquid foreign currency reserves.
And they’re chomping at the bit to spend a huge chunk of that American money on American energy know-how and supplies… while the buck is still worth something.
That’s the “trigger” here…
In a moment, I’ll show you one specific oil field services (OFS) company that’s a hot moneymaker on this “super shift” right now…
They’re already making a killing on their highly specialized new oil/gas extraction technologies.
It’s just one of literally dozens of drill-tech and OFS companies I know of that could hit red-hot profit rides in the very near future, as China starts doling money out to U.S. companies with proven expertise.
Super Shift #3: Breakthrough opens America’s $40 trillion
Everybody knows California’s traditional oil production is declining at nearly double-digit rates every single year. In fact, current volume is less than half of what it was just a few years ago.
Yet what most people don’t know is that California is sitting on untapped gas/oil reserves equivalent to 500 billion barrels of crude.
That’s enough to eliminate U.S. crude imports for 7 decades at current usage levels. At today’s prices, that adds up to $40 trillion worth of domestic oil…
It’s called the Monterey Shale. And unlike other shale-based deposits in the U.S., this one is mostly crude oil.
In fact, it’s the “source rock” for most of the state’s oil production.
Now the Monterey Shale isn’t a secret. It’s been tapped in small volumes since the 1800s.
What’s kept it from being a superstar oil field is the very poor “recovery rate” of Monterey Shale wells.
Only around 10% of the crude available from each well can typically be brought to the surface.
But according to my Inner Circle contacts, recent developments in oil markets and drilling technologies could soon turn this under-tapped reserve into one of the hottest oil properties on the planet…
One of these is called Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD).
It’s a little-known breakthrough in oil extraction first demonstrated by the U.S. Department of Energy in 2005…
MPD is a system of high-tech air injection that combines with a special “California Cocktail” of acidized drilling mud to lift much larger amounts of oil from Monterey Shale wells.
Combined with state-of-the-art new drilling methods, MPD helps boost well productivitywithout significantly increasing costs…
Therein lies the trigger that’s putting this “super shift” into motion.
You see, MPD and other new technologies make tapping this mammoth domestic reserve profitable at just $80 a barrel…
And with oil hovering well above that mark right now (and for the foreseeable future), smart investors should be licking their chops over the Monterey Shale.
This deposit’s oil alone could cut America’s dependency on imported crude in halfvirtually overnight – and perhaps soon render us energy independent.
Imagine what kind of money you could wring out of this $40 trillion domestic oil cache with a few well-placed investments.
That’s where my Inner Circle contacts come in…
I’m going to be able to put you smack in the middle of every opportunity that arises in this mammoth “super shift” toward domestic hydrocarbons.
- The oil-field servicers.
- The equipment makers.
- The refiners and pipeline companies.
- The storage facilities.
- The retail networks and more…
In fact, I know of two stocks you could use to pour yourself a cocktail of profits from this suddenly accessible Monterey crude RIGHT NOW…
One of these has 10 billion barrels of oil ($814.5 billion worth) ready for drilling using MPD and other techniques on its 300,000 acres in the Monterey…
The other holds 1.2 million Monterey acres – and is ready to pour $6.3 billion into new extraction efforts over the next 4 years.
You see how incredibly lucrative these “super shifts” can be?
Just these three could tap you into a combined $90 trillion worth of energy transactions that are about to change the world:
- More than $48 trillion worth of Orinoco oil destined for global markets…
- As much as $2 trillion in cash dipped from China’s tech-buying war chest…
- Up to $40 trillion in soon-to-be-tapped North American hydrocarbon assets…
I’ll bet you’ve heard about NONE of these “super shifts” from whatever source of energy news or investing guidance you’re using right now.
And remember, these three “shifts” reflect only a fraction of the world energy market of the near future…
