Huge Gulf oil discovery a big deal for Dallas' Venari Resources

Dallas Business Journal -- Dallas-based Venari Resources LLC announced a major oil discovery this week in the Gulf of Mexico that could be one of the largest ever found, according to Brian Reinsborough, the company’s CEO and President.

Also, today, the 10-month-old company won an auction for 15 additional offshore lease blocks, each consisting of nine square miles. That means more offshore drilling will be coming soon.

The news is "solidifying Venari’s place" as a deepwater driller and as a sustainable oil company. The company has 30 employees but is looking to hire more.

The Shenandoah well goes more than 31,000 feet down, including 5,800 feet of water, to reach 1,000 feet of oil-saturated rock, Reinsborough said.

"To have this type of discovery this early in our business plan is remarkable," he said.

Small company. I hope they have the resources needed for a very expensive endeavor.

I wish them well and thank them for investing. It will be a while before they are actually producing and getting a return on their investment.

This does sound great for them. The question I have is will it change (as in lower) the price we pay at the pump?

Offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico slowed down after the British Petroleum disaster in April 2010... but is *** more active now *** than it was when the well explosion occurred.

Again, . . . I doubt that'll make a bit of a positive difference for the regular folk at the pump. Rich getting richer.

=====================

Reply: I agree with you WillyG

Venari's money making partners include Anadarko Petroleum Corp., ConocoPhillips, Cobalt International Energy, Marathon Oil Corp. and Chevron Corp.

You know where most of that money making oil will end up going to... China and India. The rest will go to the other countries around the world consuming more and more oil products.

I tend to worry about off shore oil. I'd rather drill on land where major screw ups are easy deal with.

Unfortunately, I do not run the world.

Good news like this should bring gas prices down -- Just the reverse -- Any time there is bad weather in the Gulf, prices go up in an instant!

Sure would be nice if good news had a beneficial effect for consumers at the gas pumps.
