Animation of Bakken Shale Production, 1985-2010

For a cool animation of annual Bakken shale oil production from 1985 to 2010, click here

Note: If 2011 was added, it would be even more impressive, because North Dakota oil production increased this year by about one-third over 2010.

That is a great chart. Is there one for the Gulf of Mexico/ Caribbean?

I guess Obama believes in drill, baby, drill---and to think it was Bush jr. who permanently outlawed drilling for oil off the coast of Florida...

Gulf drilling thrives year after BP spill

(CBS News) ALAMINOS CANYON BLOCK 857, Gulf of Mexico - Two hundred miles off the coast of Texas, ribbons of pipe are reaching for oil and natural gas deeper below the ocean's surface than ever before.
These pipes, which run nearly two miles deep, are connected to a floating Shell platform that is so remote they named it Perdido, which means "lost" in Spanish. What attracted Shell to this location is a geologic formation found throughout the Gulf of Mexico that may contain enough oil to satisfy U.S. demand for two years.

While Perdido is isolated, it isn't alone. Across the Gulf, energy companies are probing dozens of new deepwater fields thanks to high oil prices and technological advances that finally make it possible to tap them.
