PALM BEACH, Fla., March 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Now that the U.S. government has officially banned purchases of oil from Russia, will U.S. production rise to the challenge? Many in the industry say that yes it can and say it can go faster if regulations don't deter their progress. Bloomberg said that: "Any increased capital spending by U.S. oil and gas producers in response to the surge in crude price should help soften the blow to the economy from an expected pullback in consumer spending. It just won't be anytime soon. Americans in the last week have witnessed an unprecedented weekly surge in gasoline prices, now up to $4.17 a gallon based on American Automobile Association data." Economists at Credit Suisse Group AG and Barclays Plc say that'll incentivize greater domestic production, which should help alleviate some of the economic fallout. "We do believe that higher oil prices will lead to increased domestic energy production which could help offset higher oil prices or any potential U.S. embargo on imports of oil from Russia," said Michael Gapen, managing director and head of economic research at Barclays. At the same time, "increases in domestic oil production are likely to take time and most producers are exercising greater capital discipline than before. It may take six to nine months to see a more meaningful increase in U.S. shale output," Gapen said. Before the start of war in Ukraine, producers were gradually adding to rig counts amid shareholder demands of capital discipline and government policy geared toward green energy. Moreover, supply and labor constraints have also been headwinds to a faster pace of production. Active Mining Companies in the markets today include China Dongsheng International Inc. (OTCPK: CDSG), Houston American Energy Corp (NYSE: HUSA), Imperial Petroleum Inc. (NASDAQ: IMPP), Enservco Corporation (NYSE: ENSV), Nine Energy Service, Inc. (NYSE: NINE).
Still, since the U.S. exports just about as much petroleum as it imports, and given the enhanced development of U.S. shale production, the country has the ability to ramp up its own production, the economists said.
China Dongsheng International Inc. (OTCPK: CDSG) BREAKING NEWS - CDSG Signs Development Agreement for Oil Field in Frio County, Texas (OOIP) 15-27 Million Barrels - China Dongsheng International Inc. (the "Company" or "CDSG") is pleased to announce that the company has signed a Strategic Partnership with Stallion Energy Group, Inc. ("Stallion") of Houston Texas, for a Working Interest to develop oil production in Frio County, southwest Texas.
The drill-ready leasehold is located within an area of two of the most productive oilfields in the San Antonio Oil and Gas district, with over 100 million barrels and 400 billion cubic feet of gas produced. The multimillion-barrel potential of the project was identified after critical evaluation, mapping and analysis of a large petrophysical database of well logs, mud logs and production analogues completed by Texas based team of petroleum engineers and a geologist with a combined 90+ years of experience.
The plan is to drill vertical wells using a 40-acre spacing within a 640 acre area of the lease portfolio acquired by Stallion. Our primary production target will be the shallow, oil rich Olmos Formation, which has been a consistent oil producing strata and continues to be an active exploration target in the area.
The target horizon offers low risk, shallow conventional oil production from several pay zones identified by local offset logs. Texas American Resources (now Trinity Oil & Gas) previously computed volumetric reserves for the Olmos in the direct lease area to have original oil in place (OOIP) of 15-27 million barrels per 640-acre section. At present, this volumetric calculation has not been re-verified by Stallion.
CDSG's Chairman, Harp Sangha, stated, "With our objective of providing energy needs for today and tomorrow, this project provides an incredible opportunity for us to rapidly enhance the domestic energy output during a time of dire need. Solid projected revenues from production from this field were originally modeled on $55/barrel in 2021, thus at this time, we see an incredible opportunity for well-timed production and robust economics for now and the longer term."
