Another 3,000,000,000 barrels of oil that the US will never go after
BP Plc, Europe’s second-largest oil company, reported a “giant” discovery at the Tiber Prospect in the Gulf of Mexico that may contain more than 3 billion barrels, after drilling the world’s deepest exploration well.
The well is located about 250 miles (400 kilometers) southeast of Houston, the London-based company said today in a statement. It was drilled to approximately 35,055 feet (10,685 meters), greater than the height of Mount Everest.
For the world to be running out of oil we sure find a lot of new sources all the time.
