    Hmmmm.....whats the rogue petrochemical dependent country that requires a minimum of $75 barrel oil to balance its budget? You know, the one whose utterly corrupt leadership is facing increasing political dissent because the collapse in oil prices crippled their economy. Remember those guys, those gangsters who rose to power blowing up apartment towers in a false flag operation? Yeah....I forget....remind me again....who were those guys?

    I been getting a oil n gas insider blurb sent to me every week for at least 5 years, a cocktail napkin view of whats happening in the industry world wide, what kind of thing are happening to affect the price , how many full VLCC are sitting in the english channel with no where for the oil to go, the US rig count, civil wars, terrorists ect

    basicly it has been saying the price of a barrel of oil is low because the world is awash in oil

    this outage will be good for the price of oil

    I actually found it quite shocking when they said it was only 5% of the world's supply. IIRC, in the 70s Saudi Arabia was pretty single handedly supplying the whole world's oil demands for the most part. That's back when people in Oklahoma were getting rich pumping out a few thousand barrels of crude per week.

    I'm sorry but all this air strike and oil prices talk and not one mention of hurt workers or even a death?

    Not even Aljazeera is reporting an injury.

    WTF?

    I think you're referring to a movie.

    KSA put a media blackout so... not a lot of Anderson Cooper types on the ground to report.

    It ain't a microbrewery. This equipment is monitored remotely from a control room.

    I've worked on the Alaska pipeline on the north slope. There is constantly people on the move at these sites. Try again.

    Then how could you make such a simple justification for a zero injury situation? Oh right, you are just trying to be funny. Sarcasm isn't funny online, sorry brah.

    Media blackout and difficult reporting makes more sense. Just seems strange how the information is being presented but these corrupt governments don't mess around.

    The larger concern is that if this leads to a shooting war between the Saudis and Iranians, it will shut down all oil shipping in the Persian Gulf. About a fifth of the world supply of oil has to transit the Straight of Hormuz. Losing 20% of the world's daily output will drain the world's oil stock pile in a hurry.

    It's 110 degrees in that fucking desert. There are not a lot of people running around. They sit in a central control room looking bored for a shift. It's designed to withstand a certain level of explosion/fire outside.

    In each unit there are perhaps two guys in the field riding around in a truck with walkie talkies taking care of the odd problem. If you want to disrupt oil supply a petroleum processing plant is a great target, but if you want to kill people it's not.
