Join Chris Faulkner, CEO of Breitling Energy along with co-host Thomas Miller on Powering America Radio, the program dedicated to freeing the United States from foreign oil.
On this episode of Powering America, Parker Hallam, President of Crude Energy, Thomas Miller and Jessica Sena on board talking about the latest news in energy. Included is a discussion about drilling in the Bakken in North Dakota, what happens in the winter when sub-zero temperatures take their toll on the drilling process.
Oil prices are back down again today, mostly on news that there may be cease fire in the Ukraine. Gas prices haven’t moved much with oil trading range-bound. We do a gas price update at the bottom of the hour.
Dalton Tingle from Operation Lifesaver talks about trucking safety, particularly at railroad crossings. With the dramatic increase in truck traffic around these prolific drilling areas, safety for trucks and motorists is a significant issue. Operation Lifesaver helps educate drivers on safety techniques.
There’s also a lively discussion about the development of solar and wind as alternative sources of energy, and that no form of energy comes without a price. Even solar and wind have significant environmental impacts and are the source of killing hundreds of thousands of birds a year.
Parker concludes the show with a description of the layers of shale where drilling in the Permian Basin takes place and how investors can participate in working interest in wells through Crude Energy at www.crude.com.
