Louisiana oil producers could see a record year
Posted on 1/23/2018 3:00:00 AM.
The U.S is pumping out over ten-million barrels per day, topping a nearly 50 year record. That record may not stand long as forecasts show production could climb to eleven-million barrels a day by the end of 2019. President of the Mid Continent Oil and Gas Association Chris John says overseas markets such as China are hungry for more fuel and Louisiana’s 170 offshore operators are showing they can keep up with their demand.

    The TAKE with Rick Klein “We’re going to get it done,” President Donald Trump declared, in kicking off an extraordinary listening session on guns and school violence at the White House on Wednesday. But who is “we”? What is “it”? And when will things be done? When you get past the raw and powerful emotions on display in the room with the president, you necessarily move beyond the vague promises of action. You also lose some of the urgency – “Fix it!” one parent who lost a daughter at Parkland demanded – that right now is so palpable and visible, the urgency the very many student and parent activists spawned in the past week.
