Re: Gull Island buzz: 200 years of oil from Alaskaís North Slope?

For all we know and don't know, maybe this is closer to the truth of all these "oil fields" "owned" and operated under many, distinct, different corporate banners .... Dutch.... British.... Arabian .... even Penn's Oil, and ye old Spirit 'O 76'. Are all of these fields actually separate, distinct and without any earthly connections? Do they possibly spring from a single source deep inside the earth? Who knows, maybe they don't even know? Maybe they do. Maybe they are content to allow each other to advertise their own "fields" without dragging each other through the mud.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With regards to the Veco scandal involving Senator Ted Stevens, one wonders whether any of Lindsey Williams' executive oil elites were mentioned in the recent piece that PBS's NOW program posted. Bill Allen - President of VECO, Veco VP - Rick Smith or Jim Bowles - President of Alaskan Conoco-Philips.   

Alaska's new governor Sara Palen got elected on he promise to be tough on the oil industry as well as to clean up the corruption that has been going on in her own party. And referring to precisely whose oil fields they are, Alaskan Governor (a repubican) makes it very clear when she was asked by Maria HINOJOSA (PBS): "In a state like Alaska, Can you really take on the power of the oil companies?"

Governor Sara Palen: "The oil companies don't own the resorces. They have leases, the right to develop our resources for us and we share value and are partners there because they do the procucing for us. But we own the resources."  Gov. Palen has recently increased the oil profits tax rate on EXXON, BP, Cononco-Philips of around 2 billion dollars for this year alone. (No doubt, we know that is trasferred to us at the pump.)
