Fossil Fuel Cultists In Their Native Habitat

Biogenic fossil fuel cultists in their native environment, i.e. nowhere near an oilwell.

Editorial note: This is an anonymous, undated comment from the blog, Peak Energy, post Abiotic Oil, 3/22/05. Readers can draw their own conclusions as to its authenticity. It's placed, here, to contrast with the posted cartoon. Spelling and punctuation are the same, but it has been divided into paragraphs for the reader's comfort.

I used to work for Halliburton, in the wireline division (Welex). And then worked for a company that put oil well fires out, and serviced the wells, with coil tubing units (Cudd Pressure Control). And the last company I worked for, in the oil fields, also was a service company (ABC Nitrogen)

The oil field companies, have come along ways, since I first got in to ruff necking. The end of the business I was in (I was a diesel mechanic), I prety much had free reign. So when I had time, I would pick the brains, of the guys who actually worked on the wells. One of the brains I picked, was what they call a mud engineer in the industry. And what this guy told me, I will never forget. This guy worked for Chevron, and had worked for them for quite a few years. He was an older man (about 60), and was getting ready to retire.

You have to remember now, that when a service company is out working on a well, it could take a couple of hours to a month if not longer. So I had been out on this well for about a week, kinda kicking the rocks around, and got to know this guy, he was what they call "The Company Man". When the coil tubing operator would have problems, he would give me the nod, and I would take the guy out to breakfast dinner whatever, to get him away from the well. And this was another way to talk to him, this went on for about three weeks, and got to know the guy prety good. Good enough to get Dallas Cowboys tickets for the whole crew. Any way this guy ("The Company Man"), told me that our generation and fifty generations after would never see the end of oil. He never said anything about abiotic oil, but the way he told me about how oil is made, it sounds to me it's abiotic. He told me, the way oil is made, it is constantly being made by the mantle. And not by dinasours and vegitation (fossil fuels). He said, that if you drill deep enough you will find it. When this guy told me this, was back in 1981, two years after I got out of high school. And since then, after being on litterly about a thousand well sites, I believe what he told me. About every well head that I have been on, that was low on production, has always been brought back to original rates.

Another thing I saw allot was, the capping of wells, and this was done to hoard it. I don't know how many I have been on, working all day long (working what they call "Towers" which is 12 on and 12 off) for weeks at a time, and get the well to produce just to cap it off. This procedure is done all the time.

I have worked in the (what they call) oilfields, off and on for about 15 years, and prety much have seen everything. I can remember when, throwing the chains, was common. Now, instead of throwing chains, they have power tongs. And one of the biggest advances, in my opinion, was the introduction of the coil tubing unit. This machine, can prety much do everything, even drill. And this machine is still in its infancy.

Hopefully what I have said, will get people talking about abiotic oil. I truely believe, oil is being made in the mantle and migrates up with pressure. This is why one used to see gushers, Nowa days gushers are fround upon, because of the ecological mess. Now everything is plumbed in to a Fraq Tank. This is why you never see gushers anymore.

Well I put my two cents in, happy motoring.

About three weeks ago, I bought a motor scooter. This thing has a 150cc motor in it, it gets about 80 miles to the gallon, it does like 60 miles per hour with a tail wind, it was $997.00. I havn't driven my 2000 Z-71 chevrolet pickup, since I bought the scooter. In three weeks, I have used three gallons of gas. I can get $40 bucks worth of groceries in it. And the thing is a blast to drive. I should have got one of these things years ago.

Thanks for the heads up again Anaconda. Great story =)

You're welcome. Your point in this post and the previous post, The "Oil Window", is well taken. Geologists in the field are rarely heard from. Instead, we hear from these eggheads, who's score is like their heads: Zero.

These eggheads or "crazy uncles" are either retired geologists or never were geologists, but, rather, professional Peak oil pushers, who've been pushing Peak oil for years, and run Peak oil foundations or institutes.

Their agenda is clear -- their attachment to science and truth is highly suspect. Their ability to engage on a level playing field non-existent.

So, you were quite right to question, "geologists say," when you are hard pressed to find other, named geologists, on record for this discredited "oil window," let along geologists working in the field.

It's this writer's opinion that there is a code of silence enforced in the geological community, a thin rock line, so to speak. There's just too much credible science available to men of good faith and critical faculty for there not to be at least a discussion, if not a rocking donnybrook -- instead silence.

The cartoon is apt: Then A MIRACLE occurs.

Boil down the mumbo jumbo and that's all you got.

Geologists in the field know no miracle occurs. But who wants to have his head chopped off for stepping out of line?

The story presented while unauthenticated, does have the ring of truth to it.

First hand accounts are desperately needed, but are in short supply. This was an effort in that direction.

If only more oil field workers, whether "ruff necks," or field geologists would come forward, under the veil of anonymity, to give their stories, one way or the other: This story could really break.

One of the greatest stories ever told!

Russia Proves Peak Oil is a Scam
Joe Vialls, August 24, 2005.
(Available by direct link at left-hand column, under The Peak Oil Fraud)

The following is a quote from the anonymous "voice" from the oilpatch:

"And since then, after being on litterly about a thousand well sites, I believe what he fold me. About every well head that I have been on, that was low on production, has always been brought back to original rates."

An intriguing "tale," to say the least. But because it's anonymous and can't be authenticated, it qualifies only as one of many "tales from the oilpatch," nothing more than rumors really.

But, is there any basis, in fact, that one can point to, in other sources, to collaborate this particular tale?

The above referenced article covers a number of topics, but one section has a direct bearing on the above claim, an interesting animated diagram, depicting a "roto-rooter" that opens clogged wellheads resulting in something similar to the quoted claim.

The caption to the animated graphic is as follows:

"In direct conflict with 'Peak Oil' myth, the underreamer shown in these photos restore an oil well's original production rate, using basically the same principle as changing the oil filter in your automobile engine"

The following discussion in the article describes in detail the processes involved. And there does seem to be a 'common sense' plausibility to the concept.

Is this to be believed? One thing seems certain: The deeper the well is drilled, the more likely it is to have a conduit to primordial faults and fissures, and what else do we know? That oil companies are focussing on deep-drilled wells.

Makes one think it sure would be nice to have more evidence.
