Thought to also add this discussion around the comment I left a little earlier.
I'll start it by repeating the comment in discussion format immediately below this intro. :
A link to a similarly titled post on the General Forum pages with a couple of replies.
Take the link and check it out neighbors.
Let's here what you folks think.
If the politicos acknowledge that economic growth for their geographic area / their constituency / the citizens resident in their sphere of political empowerment exists and only awaits attention / action from the industrial sector it doesn't make intuitive sense to me for the political leadership to put required preparations 'on hold'.
That to me translates as obstructionist behavior working against the economic betterment of their geographic area / their constituency / the citizens resident in their sphere of political empowerment.
A free thinking man / woman / citizen / taxpayer could ask what purpose / agenda is served by such behavior on behalf of the politicos ?
One might come up with a plausible explanation along the lines of those political powers placating the agenda of other entities instead of the citizens resident in their sphere of political power.
Maybe the politicos are actually saying that the industry has put development 'on hold' not themselves - I don't know but I certainly would like an answer to that one.
All only IMHO
A direct link to the Star Beacon story just above.
Just below a direct link to another article discussing how some producers will accelerate development in spite of lower oil prices.
Well.................who should we believe ?
I don't know.
Then also (in most recent history) came O.P.E.C. / S. A. / their $36.00 per barrel oil, that really gums up / throws a big monkey wrench into the works.
Forget those birds.
Develop our own Natural Gas and Oil here at home.
Let Russia and China deal with the jihadis / pay to play and rip off the people in the M.E.
